Ram Rakhi Cancer Institue & Research Centre (RRCI & RC) had a humble beginning on 30 th September 2008. Functioning under the auspices of the Department of Radiotherapy, it is equipped with High Energy Linear Accelerator with Multi-leaf Collimators and 30 channel HDR Selectron Brachy-therapy equipment with Allenger’s C-arm.
The department is providing state of art Radiotherapy treatment techniques like 3D-CRT for various cancer patients. Besides this, there is an exclusive ward with well-trained nursing staff for giving chemotherapy.
The mission of this Cancer Institute is to develop a comprehensive protocol based cancer treatment to all the patients with the support of different clinical departments especially ENT, gynecology and General Surgery.
To achieve this mission, the department has already started “Tumor Board” on every friday. In this meeting, management of every malignant case is discussed before treatment.
The department is also focussed to make general awareness in public about prevention of this deadly disease.
Starting with 2 patients a day, the Department now is treating more than 50 patients every day in span of six years.
The department believes “its about focusing on the fight and not fright. Never give up, life is worth living. There is life after cancer!”
