Our Uniqueness

Minimal Access Cancer Surgery

In minimal access surgery, a surgeon makes tiny holes (0.5 to 1 cm) in the patient’s abdomen or thorax rather than large incisions & entering the patient’s body cavity. The surgeon then inserts a tiny telescope that has magnified vision & uses a stick-like instrument to carry out the procedure. Laparoscopy or thoracoscopy are the terms used to describe this process. The procedure may be referred to as a thoracoscopic esophagectomy, or another name depending on the organs that are being removed.
The benefits of minimally invasive surgery are significant. With smaller incisions, patients experience reduced scarring, less post-operative pain, & faster recovery times. This approach also lowers the risk of infections & complications. In addition, precise nature of minimally invasive surgery allows for targeted tumor removal, improving treatment outcomes. At Prolife Cancer Centre which is the best Cancer Hospital in Pune , we prioritize the advantages of minimally invasive procedures to provide our patients with the best possible care & outcomes.

Organ & Function preservation surgery

Organ and function preservation surgery, also known as organ-preserving surgery or organ-sparing surgery, refers to surgical procedures aimed at removing or treating a diseased or damaged organ while preserving its function to the greatest extent possible. The goal is to achieve optimal therapeutic outcomes while minimizing the impact on the patient's overall health and quality of life.

Affordable Chemotherapy, Targeted Therapies, Immunotherapies
  1. Chemotherapy: Chemotherapy uses drugs to kill cancer cells or prevent them from growing and dividing. Traditional chemotherapy is not targeted to specific cancer cells, but it can be effective against rapidly dividing cells in general. The cost of chemotherapy can vary depending on the specific drugs used, the duration of treatment, and the setting (hospital or outpatient). Some older chemotherapy drugs may be available in generic forms, which can be more affordable. Additionally, there may be financial assistance programs and resources available for patients to help with the cost of chemotherapy.
  2. Targeted Therapies: Targeted therapies are drugs that specifically target certain molecules or genetic mutations involved in the growth and spread of cancer cells. These therapies are designed to block the growth signals of cancer cells or interfere with specific proteins involved in tumor growth. Targeted therapies can be more precise and potentially less toxic than traditional chemotherapy. However, they can be expensive, especially newer drugs that are still under patent protection. As patents expire, generic versions may become available, potentially reducing costs. Insurance coverage and patient assistance programs can also help make targeted therapies more affordable for patients.
  3. Immunotherapies: Immunotherapies harness the body's immune system to fight cancer. They work by stimulating the immune system to recognize and attack cancer cells more effectively. Some types of immunotherapies include immune checkpoint inhibitors, CAR-T cell therapy, and cancer vaccines. Immunotherapies have shown promising results in treating various cancers, but they can be costly. Similar to targeted therapies, the cost of immunotherapies can be influenced by factors such as patents, production processes, and the type of treatment required. As with other cancer treatments, financial assistance programs and insurance coverage can help alleviate the financial burden for patients.

The profession of doctor comes with a big responsibilities. Dr Sumeet did a great job with my first ever health examination. He explained to me in a very clear manner. My critical surgery was carried out very smoothly. The staff members were also helpful and kind. I am so glad I chose Dr Sumit for my treatment and would highly recommend to anyone.
We visited Dr Sumit to consult about a mole that was on my daughter's knee. We were scared as the first doctor we consulted had informed as it was squamous carcinoma. But Dr Sumit assured us that it was nothing much to worry about and explained us everything. The way he explained made us feel at ease and the surgery also went very smoothly. We will surely recommend him as he is one of the best doctor in this field.
