Max Hospital launches pediatric oncology & haematology clinic

Mohali, September 15: Dr Bhavneet Bharti, Director Principal of Dr BR Ambedkar State Institute of Medical Sciences, Mohali inaugurated a pediatric oncology & haematology clinic at Max Hospital, Mohali today. The clinic will remain open on Monday, Thursday and Friday every week from 9am to 4pm.
Dr. Krutika Goel, associate consultant pediatric oncology said that as we celebrate September as Global Childhood Cancer Awareness month the clinic will be a significant stride towards advancing pediatric healthcare in the region.
It will offer an array of critical services like chemotherapy day care, PET-CT, Paediatric ICU, surgical oncology and radiation oncology, she informed.
She further said that children's cancers are markedly distinct from their adult counterparts, necessitating a dedicated approach. These encompass the diagnosis and treatment of conditions such as leukemias, lymphomas, brain tumors, neuroblastoma, wilms tumor, rhabdomyosarcoma, retinoblastoma, and bone cancers.
Our vision is to cater to all children with cancers as well as blood disorders like complicated anemias, thalassemias, immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) and bleeding disorders like hemophilias, Dr Goel informed.
Dr Sachin Gupta director medical oncology also underscored the importance of prompt consultation with the clinic's dedicated medical team.
He said,” Especially when a child exhibits symptoms such as rapid weight loss, unremitting fever that doesn’t respond to treatment, unexplained vision changes, persistent headaches, unexplained limping, persistent pain in any part of their body, unexplained bleeding or bruising, chronic fatigue, unexplained paleness, or any unexplained lump or swelling. Modern cancer care demands a holistic approach, calling for unwavering commitment, expertise, and an indomitable spirit from our cancer specialists."
Dr. Pinak Moudgil, senior VP and head said, "The launch of the pediatric oncology & haematology clinic reaffirms our unwavering commitment to delivering the finest and most contemporary medical care in the region. This clinic will provide children across North India access to world-class treatment for pediatric oncology and hematology concerns."
