Department of Medical & hemato-Oncology

Medical Oncology is a modality of treatment in cancer care which uses Chemotherapy, Immunotherapy, Hormonal Therapy and Targeted Therapy to treat cancer in an effective manner. Chemotherapy is used for cure, palliation or symptom control. It can be used with other modality as surgery or radiation for best possible result.

Apex Hospital Cancer Institute’s medical oncology specialty team works towards preventing, diagnosing and treating cancer by offering the standard management protocols and customized multi-modality therapies under one roof.

We at Apex Hospital Cancer Institute’s medical oncology department were chemo-port or central-line or picc-line for administering chemotherapy as per patients’ requirements.

Diagnostic facility of bone marrow aspiration and biopsy to detect blood cancers is also available at our center.

Along with all solid tumors we also manage blood cancers live leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma, and multi proliferative neoplasm. We have the facility for intrathecal chemotherapy along with neutropenia care.

Paediatric oncology is also will established and we are managing paediatric solid and haematology malignancy with chemotherapy and surgery.

Hemato-oncology refers to the medical practice that combines hematology (the study of blood physiology) and oncology (the study of cancer). These types of medicines diagnose and treat cancerous blood disorders and cancers, and treat the symptoms of these diseases and the resulting tumors (if any). A hematologist-oncologist treats:

  • Non-Hodgkin lymphoma
  • Leukemia
  • Iron deficiency anemia
  • Hodgkin lymphoma
  • von Willebrand disease
  • Clotting disorders
  • Hemophilia
  • Sickle cell disease
  • Thalassemia
  • Polycythemia vera
  • Multiple myeloma

Chemotherapy is a drug treatment that uses powerful chemicals to kill fast-growing cells in your body.

Chemotherapy is most often used to treat cancer, since cancer cells grow and multiply much more quickly than most cells in the body.

Many different chemotherapy drugs are available. Chemotherapy drugs can be used alone or in combination to treat a wide variety of cancers.


Immunotherapy is a type of cancer treatment that helps your immune system fight cancer. The immune system helps your body fight infections and other diseases. It is made up of white blood cells and organs and tissues of the lymph system.

Immunotherapy is a type of biological therapy. Biological therapy is a type of treatment that uses substances made from living organisms to treat cancer. It is the latest armarium in fight against cancer

Targeted Therapy

Targeted therapy is a type of cancer treatment that uses drugs or other substances to precisely identify and attack certain types of cancer cells. Targeted therapy can be used by itself or in combination with other treatments, such as traditional or standard chemotherapy, surgery, or radiation therapy.

Hormone Therapy

Hormone therapy is a form of systemic therapy—a way of administering drugs so they travel throughout the body, rather than being delivered directly to the cancer—that works to add, block or remove hormones from the body to slow or stop the growth of cancer cells. At Apex Super Speciality Hospital & Cancer Institute’s, we use hormone therapy to fight various types of cancer.

Precision Medicine – As per disease and requirement required genetic test are dine for individualized treatment.


  • Chemo Therapy
  • Hormonal Therapy
  • Targeted Therapy
  • Post-Surgery chemo therapy

Department of Surgical Oncology

Surgery is the most important component in the treatment of solid organ cancers. Cure is not a realistic possibility without it. We, at the Department of Surgical Oncology at Apex Hospital Cancer Institute, Varanasi, U.P, aim to cure such cancers whenever possible, and when not possible, shall give palliative treatment, so as to improve the quality of their life.

In this era of organ conservation, the department of surgical oncology works closely with Medical and Radiological oncology for optimal outcome and international guidelines with regard to treatment of such cancers including preoperative Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy are utilized for the same. In early stages of various cancers, surgery alone suffices for cure. In more advanced stages, Chemotherapy (or) Radiotherapy may be required before or after surgery, to achieve optimal outcomes.
