Oncology

Finding the right cancer care center you can trust and believe in has always been important, but in today's uncertain times, it's more important than ever. The era of cancer diagnosis and treatment is constantly evolving, with breakthroughs and discoveries changing the course of care all the time. Deciding which combination of treatments is right for you is critical as well as overwhelming. That's why it's important to turn to the best oncologists in Kerala. Every stage. Every day. From state-of-the-art cancer treatments to supportive therapies that target side effects, our integrative, comprehensive care is delivered by a team comprising expert medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, hematologists, nurses, and other cancer experts in Kottakkal.

Cancers we treat:

  • Breast and Gynecologic Oncology
  • Thoracic Oncology
  • Gastrointestinal Oncology
  • Head and Neck Oncology
  • Hematologic Malignancy ( leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma)

The integrative cancer care service we offer include:

In-patient chemotherapy

Most cancer chemotherapies can be administered safely and effectively in hospitals. However, in certain clinical conditions such as acute leukemia, known hypersensitivity reactions, or comorbidities, an inpatient stay becomes medically necessary as they require patient monitoring or complex administration over multiple days. With the best oncologists in Kottakkal and a full range of in-house support facilities, we provide an environment of care and competence to enable speedy recovery at nominal costs.

Chemotherapy Day Care

For many minor procedures or treatments, patients can avoid overnight hospitalization. Our Chemotherapy Daycare is a well-equipped facility that allows patients to walk home the same day of treatment. The Daycare unit here is one of the best in Kerala, staffed by experienced oncologists and nurses in Kottakkal. Here, we offer follow-up treatments, blood transfusions, and patient teaching and counseling related to side effects, dosages, and after-chemo care.

Intensive Care

Patients with cancer are at high risk for acute life-threatening illnesses that require ICU admission. The indications can be cancer-related (eg, critical organ infiltration), treatment-related (eg, sepsis, drug toxicity), or due to comorbid illnesses (eg, kidney or heart failure). Almas Hospital is one of Kerala's multi-specialty healthcare providers. At Almas, the Oncology Intensive Care Unit is at the core of many life-saving treatments. Here, patients are monitored round the clock in sterile environments by the best oncologists in Kottakkal, specialist nurses, respiratory therapists, and counselors that are on call to assist with emergencies.

Pediatric cancer care

Pediatric cancer is very rare, but it can happen and may come in many forms such as leukemia, lymphoma, and neuroblastoma. Our pediatric cancer care unit provides compassionate, professional care to many hundreds every year. Here, your child will receive a personalized treatment plan from India’s leading pediatric oncologists and blood disorder experts. From treatment to diagnosis to follow-up care, our specialists are with you and your child every step of the way.

Cancer screening and prevention

Preventative oncology is a subspecialty in Oncology that focuses on key measures that can prevent cancer onset or delay the progression of the malignancy. Cancer prevention and screening are the cornerstones of Preventive Oncology. AOI at Almas Hospital offers the best cancer screening, surveillance, and counseling programs in Kerala to reduce cancer incidence and mortality and improve the lives of cancer patients.

Leukemia and Lymphoma treatment

Often referred to as "liquid tumors'', leukemia and lymphoma are blood cancers, affecting the bone marrow, the blood cells, and the lymphatic system. Together with the American Oncology Institute, Calicut, we bring a range of novel treatments including targeted therapy, stem cell transplant, hormonal therapy, and immunotherapy to fight alongside you.
