AOI was started with an aim to close the gap between standards of cancer care in South Asia and the US through knowledge transfer of the rich lineage of its parent organization in offering Precision Cancer Care. AOI provides comprehensive cancer management that is powered by clinical excellence, world class technology as well as international pathways and protocols for treatment planning and execution, the only one of its kind in cancer care across India and South Asia.
AOI’s experienced cancer specialists create the most effective treatment plan following US University-level guidelines.
A multi-disciplinary team of Medical, Radiation and Surgical Oncologists assess the patient’s condition to arrive at the right treatment decision.
At AOI, Radiation Treatment Planning is done by a central team under the guidance of US-based experts that have decades of experience collectively to ensure better accuracy and lesser side effects.
AOI practices evidence-based medicine to ensure precise outcomes. At AOI, each treatment is planned based on international protocols that are administered through decision support tools enabled by technology.
AOI conducts a weekly International Tumor Board wherein, the clinicians from US join their counterparts in India to jointly review complex cases. This multidisciplinary team jointly decides on diagnosis and treatment pathways based on US university level protocols apart from reviewing treatment outcomes periodically.
Cancer is not just one disease. There are more than 200 distinct types of cancer that have been identified. Each case of cancer requires a different approach based on the type of cancer as well as the stage of advancement. Cancer treatment is done by a multidisciplinary team of doctors who are competent and trained to treat every type of cancer.
Precision in cancer care is largely dependent on the type of technology that is used for treating cancer. The most advanced machines in radiation therapy allow us to treat only the tumour tissues and sparing most of the normal tissues. We are equipped with the most advanced technology today available in India.
Besides having the latest technology for diagnosis and treating cancer we have created an environment where each treatment is planned based on international protocols. These international protocols are administered through decision support tools enabled by technology.
