Wockhardt Hospital’s Personalized Cancer care bringing a revolutionary change in treatment: Dr. Vaibhav Chaudhary

Wockhardt Hospital

Nagpur: Aiming to develop a holistic solution to cancer care, Wockhardt Hospitals, Nagpur offers personalized cancer care to their patients. The aim of this approach is to treat the patients in a customized way on their clinical condition, weight, and also financial status. 

Talking about this approach to treatment, Dr. Vaibhav Chaudhary, Consultant– Medical Oncology informed us that to begin Chemotherapy, age is not a bar for patients. He also added that he is currently treating many patients who have been denied treatment by many other doctors stating that they have stage four cancers and that there is very less survival time for them.

“One of my patients (diagnosed with stage four gall bladder cancer in June 2021) was told by a doctor that she had stage four cancer and that she would survive for only three months. The family was shattered and lost hope to get the lady treated further”, informed Dr. Vaibhav Chaudhary. “However, the patient did not die in the mentioned time limit and this is when the family started searching for another doctor and approached me. The patient is leading a normal life now. This proves that cancer at stage four is not a death sentence for the patients anymore and they can be treated in a personalized way”, he added.

This approach helps in managing the side effects of cancer, improves response to treatment, survival, and quality of life, and reduces healthcare costs. This adds in converting the stage four cancers into a chronic disease.

Cancer and its post-treatment recovery play a significant impact on one’s physical, psychological, and emotional health-being. Thus, the survivorship of the person being diagnosed with cancer begins at the time of diagnosis and includes the initial time-frame treatment with intent to cure, cancer-free survival, and end-of-life care.

There are numerous cases of advanced stage 4 cancer, labeled as unfit for chemotherapy elsewhere who have benefitted from the personalized cancer approach at Wockhardt Hospital Cancer department. We believe in making cancer patients fit again and improving their quality of life by treating cancer in a holistic way.
