Welcome to the Department of Oncology
The Department of Oncology at Fortis Memorial Research Institute (FMRI) is dedicated to providing comprehensive care to patients with cancer. We understand how valuable life is and all our activities are focused on providing the best possible cancer care to our patients.
We offer some of the most leading cancer specialists in the country, the very advanced state-of-the-art facilities and pioneering treatments, thanks to our extensive research programmes.
At the Department of Oncology, we have a multi-disciplinary team of doctors, nurses and other health professionals specialising in treating cancers. They discuss and prepare the most effective and individualised treatment plan for you. In addition, they keep you involved in available treatment options and decisions about your treatment and care.
The Department specialises in breast cancer, lung cancer, prostate cancer, gastrointestinal cancer, and head and neck cancer, as well as brain and spinal cord tumours, ophthalmic oncology and palliative medicine. The Department also runs an extensive medical program, with experienced sub-specialists in the field of Medical Oncology, Haematology – adult & paediatric, Radiation Oncology, Specialised Onco Surgery, and Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT) services.
Our unique strength is the close collaboration between our physicians and scientists, which enables us to offer cancer patients with the best care available as we strive towards discovering more-effective cancer treatment to prevent, control, and ultimately cure cancer in the future.
Over a period of time, the department has carved a niche for itself, both nationally and internationally, for excellence in cancer treatment and research & became a one-stop avenue for cancer patients to find the unsurpassed cancer care in the region.
