Apollo Specialty Cancer Hospital is an exclusive and well established hospital for Cancer care. NABH accredited, it is a 300 bedded facility, it provides all that is needed for world class cancer care - the most advanced technology especially in diagnosis and radiation, an Oncology team that consists of the most renowned specialists and a well trained team of medical and paramedical professionals who are exclusively trained in cancer care.

Treatment planning is key to Cancer care. We address this through the Tumour Board which is a panel of medical, surgical and radiation oncologists. The Board, in association with the diagnostic consultants examine the case together and agree on the best line of treatment for each patient. Others who join and support the panel include Medical counsellors, speech therapists, dieticians and other professionals.

In the realm of bone marrow transplants, this hospital is one of the few centers in India where search for a potential unrelated donor can be performed and transplants are routinely performed using such donors.

Gallium 68 PET-CT scan is done for the imaging of well differentiated Neuroendocrine Tumours (NET) and Prostate cancers. Neuroendocrine Tumours are characterised by their ability to over express Somatostatin Receptors (SSTR) is most cells. PET Imaging using Gallium 68 Labelled SST analogs (Ga-68 DOTATATE) combined with contrast enhanced multi detector CT images offer higher resolution with promising results in the detection of SST receptor - expressing well differentiated NET tumours with low Ki-67 index. Gallium 68 labelled PSMA (Prostate Specific Membrane Antigen) offers good quality images in patients with Prostate cancer. This scan images the tumor cells that expresses PSMA antigen and is highly sensitive compared to the conventional imaging for lesser detection.
