About the Department
As parents, cancer is something you wouldn't want to see your child suffering from, even in your worst nightmares. Once detected, parents have only one goal in mind- to treat it as early as possible, restore their child’s health and help the child live the life they have envisaged for him. At Fortis, we have a fully equipped Paediatric Oncology Department to ensure effective treatment and best support to you and your child through this testing time. We acutely understand the gravity of the responsibility entrusted to us and we make sincere efforts to comfort families by ensuring that our young patients get the best care.
Delivering world-class care closer to home
At Fortis, Bannerghatta we are committed to caring for each patient’s physical, emotional and social needs in a kid-friendly environment. We treat patients ranging in age from newborns to young adults. Our mission is to ensure a comfortable experience, be it chemotherapy for a teen or an emergency procedure for a toddler.
Our pediatricians and trained hospital staff clearly understand that children have different medical and emotional response compared to adults. We create a thriving environment for the kids by delivering best care through our advanced equipment and techniques. We constantly focus on providing the most suitable care to kids and teens so that they heal faster and can get back to their life soon. You can rely on our medical expertise and skill even in the most complex scenarios.
The role of family, in a child's well-being, is instrumental. Parents are the biggest source of confidence and comfort for their children. Hence, they play the most critical role in the healthcare decision making for their child. Keeping that in mind, we always work towards joint decision making and support the entire family while the child is hospitalized and even after they go home. We ensure to take your opinions on every small and big healthcare decision of your child, provide the needed mental support and distraction to the patient’s siblings and ensure to deliver our best to fit our care within your routine.
Giving you the best chance of a cure is our first goal. We live by our commitment to saving and enriching lives by advancing healthcare through our rigorous focus on clinical excellence and distinctive patient care.
