Clinic Review

Tata Memorial Hospital
Tata Memorial
is the Indian Cancer Center, which is annually chosen by over 64,000 patients from all over the world. The hospital specialists accurately diagnose and treat all types of cancers from stage 1-4. More than 70% of cancer center patients completely get rid of malignant tumors.

Annually, the Center conducts about 18, 500 minimally invasive, 11, 500 open and 250 laser operations.

Over 6000 cancer patients per year undergo effective radiation therapy and chemotherapy. Every day about 1,300 outpatients visits.

Patients at the Tata Memorial Hospital have access to innovative drugs and advanced treatments, as in 1962 the clinic was combined with the Cancer Research Institute and transferred to the Department of Atomic Energy of India (DAE).

In 1983, the Center conducted bone marrow transplantation for the first time in the country.

In 2006, the hospital received the "Outstanding Medical Facility-Member of the International Union of Cancer Control (UICC)" award for achievements in the field of oncology.  Since 2014, the clinic began to use robotic interventions. From 2014-2016, the hospital specialists conducted 50 robotic surgeries.

Features of the Clinic


Since 1941, the surgical department of the Tata Memorial Hospital is leading in the field of operative cancer treatment. Every year, about 14,000 minimally invasive and 9,000 open operations are performed here.

There are 4 divisions in the department:

  • surgical oncology;
  • head and neck cancer;
  • gynecological oncology;
  • plastic and reconstructive surgery.

Doctors put efforts to preserve the patient's organ during the surgery of malignant formation. If possible, they turn to safe minimally invasive surgery.

The Center also provides free tissue transplantation during reconstructive surgery. There were 5,000 such transplants, 97% of which were completely successful.


Cancer is treated with advanced methods of radiotherapy here:

  • Intensive Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT). It is considered to be the most safe for healthy tissues and organs, since it acts directly on malignant formation. The procedure is highly effective due to the fact that it allows to deliver the maximum dose of radiation directly to the tumor.
  • Tomotherapy. Allows to irradiate several tumors simultaneously and determine the degree of damage to cancer cells after the procedure.
  • Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRX). This method involves the safe conduct of clearly focused beams of rays to cancer cells. It is most often used to treat brain tumors.
  • Total body irradiation (TBI). It assumes uniform irradiation of the whole body. Shown before transplantation.
  • Radiation therapy of skin (TSET). It is used to treat squamous cell carcinoma of the skin.
  • Dynamic Electronic Arc Therapy (EDT). This method of irradiation involves irradiating hard-to-reach tumors with a moving electron beam.


The Department has 11 resuscitation chambers and the 22nd - to restore patients after transplantation. Every year more than 650 patients are assisted here in critical condition.

Since 2002, the department has a team to combat heart attacks.

The department also has a clinic for preoperative anesthesia evaluation of cancer patients who are scheduled to undergo surgery. Specialists conduct a comprehensive examination of the patient and make an individual anesthesia plan.
