Medical Oncology


The Department of Medical Oncology at Tata Main Hospital was founded in 2018. Since then, it has been providing advanced cancer care services to patients not only from Jharkhand but also from neighbouring states. Over the past six years, the department has constantly improved and upgraded its facilities and is now considered to be one of the best-equipped medical oncology departments in Eastern India.

Tata Main Hospital's Oncology unit takes an integrated approach to cancer care. It comprises an experienced team of surgical, radiation, and medical oncologists, along with support from various other specialties. The experienced oncology team evaluates every cancer patient at Tata Main Hospital, and all the cases are discussed in a multidisciplinary tumor board before the treatment starts. This ensures the patient receives the best possible treatment plan and care. We are in the era of precision oncology, which involves the molecular characterization of every tumor to identify specific mutations or targets. Based on this information, targeted therapy and immunotherapy are decided upon. At Tata Main Hospital in Jamshedpur, we regularly perform molecular profiling tests for our patients. We have treated and are currently treating thousands of cases using the most effective combination or sequence of targeted therapy, immunotherapy, and chemotherapy available.

The Medical Oncology department is committed to providing top-quality patient care and services. The department is also actively involved in various academic and research activities, with many publications indexed on PubMed. Specialists from the department frequently participate in state, national, and international conferences and webinars. The department's motto is to provide sustainable, evidence-based treatment and care to every patient suffering from cancer.
