In view of rising cancer cases, Wockhardt Hospitals in association with Nashik Oncology Group has set up an oncology department to treat cancer patients based in Nashik and surrounding areas.
To mark World Cancer Day, the hospital even felicitated several cancer survivors. Present on the occasion were Dr Nagesh Madnoorkar, head of Nashik Oncology Group, Dr Reshma Borale, centre head, Wockhardt Hospital, Nashik, Medical Oncologist Dr Sandeep Ishi, medical oncologist Dr Shailesh Bondarde, surgical oncologist Dr Ajay Jadhav, radiation oncologist Dr Bhushan Nemade, radiation oncologist Dr Mangesh Korde, oncologist Dr Sanjay Ahire, surgical oncologist Dr Vinayak Shenage, and surgical oncologist Dr Sulabhchandra Bhambare.
The cancer burden has shown a steady increase every year. Apart from tobacco, alcohol, obesity, and sedentary lifestyle, even environmental factors, genetics, and family history also contribute to the increase in cancer cases. Wockhardt Hospitals has taken a big initiative to improve the quality of life of cancer patients.
“A large number of people in every age group are getting detected with cancer. Lack of proper screening methods, diagnosis, and timely treatment can raise mortality and morbidity rates in cancer patients. It is the need of the hour to educate everyone about cancer and encourage them to seek timely intervention with any delay.  The hospital has come up with an oncology department to manage various cancers such as breast, esophageal, ovarian, uterine, gallbladder and bile duct, prostate, bladder, thyroid, liver, bone, colon, cervical, and leukemia with its expertise via a multidisciplinary approach. We also felicitated cancer survivors who are an inspiration and have set an example in society. We thank Nashik Oncology Group for supporting us in this unique initiative taken for the benefit of cancer patients,” said Dr Reshma Borale, centre head, Wockhardt Hospital, Nashik.
“We feel honoured and elated to join hands with Wockhardt Hospitals, Nashik for providing treatment to cancer patients. We look forward to treating as many patients as we can from Nashik and surrounding areas so that they can lead a normal life. This oncology department is a boon for cancer patients who wish to bounce back from the disease,” concluded Dr Nagesh Madnoorkar, head of Nashik Oncology Group.
