Gynaecology is the medical practice dealing with the health of female reproductive system. At MSCC our emphasis is to help young cancer patients of the reproductive age groups – both male & female patients – prior to chemotherapy or radiotherapy through gamete & embryo cryopreservation. Gynaecological problems can be controlled through vaccination, screening and educational programmes. We also provide treatment & rehabilitation with pain relief & palliative care.
The programme of Gynaecological Oncology at Mazumdar Shaw Cancer centre provides treatment to all gynaecological cancers. We strive to provide excellent care in Ovarian, Cervical, Endometrial, Vulval and Vaginal cancers. Our approach to all cancers is ‘holistic’ and integrated with a team of counsellors, specialist nurses, physiotherapists, yoga teachers, palliative medicine and oncologists.
We provide minimally invasive surgery and robotic surgery for complex gynaecological oncological procedures and benign gynaecological conditions. Currently, over 95% of all procedures are performed laparoscopically ensuring minimal blood loss and speedy recovery to the patients. We are the only centre in the country to have a Gynaecology Oncology specialist nurse to provide one to one support before, during and after the admission. Our specialist nurse is trained to address issues related to different treatments, including chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Our counsellor attached to the women’s oncology wing is the best available for sexuality and psychological support.
Our centre also provides treatment for recurrent gynaecological cancers including exenteration surgery, secondary cytoreductive surgery with HIPEC and side wall recurrence excision.
