• Kidney, Urinary Bladder and Prostate
• Gynecological Tumors
• Lung and Esophagus (Food Pipe)

Chemotherapy is the use of drugs to destroy rapidly growing Cancer cells. Some kinds of Chemotherapy may slow the growth of Cancer cells, and keep them from spreading to other parts of the body. It may be used with radiation to help shrink the tumor before surgery. It may also be used after surgery or radiation to destroy remnant Cancer cells. At Bhaktivedanta Hospital & Research Institute Chemotherapy is given by well qualified and experienced Oncologist and managed by a team of Oncology Certified Nurses who provide close monitoring.
