Pain is the most common and dreaded symptom in cancer patients. The pain department provides holistic care and relief from pain with psychological, spiritual, social and occupational interventions.
The department focuses mainly on pain management for both cancer and non-cancer related pain like spine related pain, musculo-skeletal pain, headaches and other pain syndromes. In addition to pharmacological management we also alleviate pain by interventional methods like radiofrequency ablation under fluoroscopy guidance and ultrasound guidance, neurolysis and prolotherapy.
Other distresses caused by cancer related treatments like vomiting, nausea, and fatigue are also addressed effectively. Patients on cancer treatment are seen and re-evaluated on regular basis. In addition to symptomatic relief, respite care and end-of-life care are also provided in this department.
Pre-treatment counselling is done for all the patients who are scheduled to undergo cancer treatment. Additionally, individual and family counselling is provided when required.
Non-physical distress like psycho-social issues, is dealt by experts such as clinical psychologists. Addiction problems like tobacco/alcohol and other substances is handled by deaddiction experts are Mucositis Clinic, Lymphedema and Stoma Clinic remains open on all week days from 9.00 am to 5.00 pm.
