Treatments and Procedures

Oncology specialists at Kamineni Hospitals possess specialized training and knowledge in dealing with a wide range of cancers. Our seasoned oncologists are equipped with the latest developments in medicine and equipment to offer exceptional treatment for patients. Oncology specialists at Kamineni Hospitals offer various treatment options for patients.

Also, it is important to note that some people suffering from cancer may not need to undergo more than one treatment procedure. Whereas some cancer patients need more than one treatment for an effective treatment.

Biomarker Testing for Cancer Treatment

Biomarkers or tumour markers help oncologists to diagnose and select the best treatment for the patient. Every cancer type has a distinct pattern of biomarkers. By studying these biomarkers Oncologists get a clear picture of the type of cancer and the treatment type that it needs.

Biomarker testing is also called tumour testing, tumour genetic testing, somatic testing, and molecular testing or molecular profiling. Sometimes they also determine what type of treatment option exactly fits certain cancers.

Chemotherapy

Oncologists use chemotherapy to kill or reduce the chance of cancer returning to a patient’s body. This procedure involves using drugs to kill or slow the growth of cancer cells. It can be used to treat cancer or ease cancer symptoms.

Hormone Therapy

Certain types of cancer cells use hormones to grow themselves. Those types of cancer cells can be treated or stopped from growing further by using Hormone therapy. Oncologists perform hormone therapy by influencing hormones in the patient body.

Common types of hormone therapy include Hormone replacement therapy (HRT), Androgen replacement therapy (ART), and more.

Hyperthermia

Oncologists perform hyperthermia, in which a particular body tissue in the patient’s body is heated to as high as 113 F to damage and kill cancer cells in that particular tissue. This procedure is carried out without causing any harm or damage to neighbouring tissues. This treatment is also called thermal therapy, thermal ablation, or thermotherapy.

Oncologists perform Hyperthermia only when cancers are in a critical stage. Most of the time cancers are treated with chemotherapy and radiation therapy. If none of those treatment procedures succeeds then Hyperthermia is used. Hyperthermia is used to treat a wide range of cancers such as

appendix cancer

bladder

 brain cancer

 breast

 cervical cancer

 esophageal cancer

 head and neck cancer

 liver

 lung cancer

 melanoma

 mesothelioma

 sarcoma

Photodynamic Therapy

Photodynamic Therapy is also one of the common treatment types used to treat cancers. Oncologists use a drug in this procedure that is activated by a light photosensitizer. Once the drug is injected into the body, cancer cells absorb the drug within 24 to 74 hours. Cancer cells that absorb the photosensitizer are exposed to light. The light exposure makes the photosensitizer make a form of oxygen that kills cancer cells.

Radiation Therapy

Radiation Therapy involves using ionizing radiation as a part of cancer treatment to kill or control the growth of the cancer cells. In this procedure, the ionizing radiation damages the DNA of the cancerous cells leading to cancer cell death. At low doses, it can be used in X-rays to get a clear picture of the inside body of the patient like teeth or broken bones.

What facilities does Kamineni have for radiation theraphy

Kamineni Hospitals is one of the few radiation therapy centres in the city. It is well-equipped and managed by highly experienced physicians and specialized teams. Kamineni Hospitals has two major kinds equipment for delivery of radiation treatment:

  • Linear Accelerator for External Radiotherapy
  • Micro Selectron HDR for Brachytherapy
What is External Radiotherapy?

External radiotherapy can be administered as 2D conventional radiotherapy or 3D conformal radiotherapy and IMRT. The selection of therapy depends on the clinical profile of the patient, 3D conformal radiotherapy and IMRT are more advanced and frequently used.

Radiation oncologists chart out the course of treatment prior to delivering it. The patient is counselled in detail regarding the treatment, side effects and outcomes. Treatment plans vary as per type and location of cancer and can last up to 7 weeks. For some cases the radiotherapy is given along with chemotherapy once a week (Intravenous or oral) as per the advice of the medical oncologist. Once the treatment is complete, the patient is counselled regarding diet, precautions, follow-up schedule and emergency detection.

How is Brachytherapy different from External Radiotherapy?

Brachytherapy is an advanced form of treatment. It is commonly used as an effective treatment for cervical, prostate, breast, and skin cancer among others. Brachytherapy involves placing a sealed radiation source inside or next to the area requiring treatment.

Brachytherapy is highly precise and ensures a high dose of radiation to be applied to a small area. As radiation sources remain accurately targeted, clinicians are able to achieve a high level of dose delivery. This enhances efficacy of treatment and reduces risk.
