Oncology

Oncology Overview

Established in 1957, Valavadi Narayanasamy Cancer Center, the oncology department of GKNM hospital has been one of the forerunners of cancer care in South India. Well known in the region for its ethical cancer treatment and empathetic patient care, we offer the entire spectrum of holistic cancer care under one roof. Our services have benefited more than two lakh cancer patients and their families over the past 64 years.

  • Cancer therapy often requires a multi modality approach, a combination of surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy to achieve an optimal cancer cure. Multidisciplinary oncology care is being provided to all our patients since 2006.
  • Multidisciplinary teams catering to specific organ systems were established in the year 2009 helping in a more focussed approach and contributing to the overall improvement in the care delivered.
