Department of Pediatric Oncology

The Department of Pediatric Oncology at Kanchi Kamakoti CHILDS Trust Hospital is dedicated for treatment of children with cancers like leukemia (blood cancer), lymphomas, brain tumours, solid tumors like neuroblastoma, Wilms tumor, germ cell tumors as well as bone tumors like Ewings and osteosarcomas. Our mission is to provide unsurpassed care to children with catastrophic disease like cancer. There is a dedicated oncology ward for these children where maintenance of asepsis is given a priority for administering chemotherapy. These children are managed effectively by a team of dedicated Paediatric Oncologists and are effectively supported by the pediatricians, intensivists, pediatric surgeons, neurosurgeons, neurologist, endocrinologist and pediatric oncology nurses along with social worker and physical therapists who educate and support the entire family. Children undergo procedures like Lumbar Puncture / Intrathecal drugs administration / Bone marrow aspiration & biopsy / accessing of implanted ports under appropriate procedural sedation.

Two projects, Ray of Light Foundation and Pediatric Solid Tumor Project in Kanchi Kamakoti CHILDS Trust Hospital provide free treatment to children diagnosed with cancer, to both lower and middle socioeconomic groups thereby contributing to the improvement of the outcome in these children.
