AOI that has pioneered the way cancer care is diagnosed and delivered in this part of the world is promoted by USA’s leading Oncologists, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) and the leading healthcare platform- AHH (Asia Healthcare Holdings).

Prevalence of Cancer
India has reported over 15 lakhs new cancer cases per year and this number is expected to be around 20 lakhs by 2020. Sadly, more than 70% of these cases are reported in advanced stages, leading to poor survival rates. Lack of optimal facilities with technology and protocols to provide relevant care have added to the disease burden in this region. According to a recent survey, 39% of deaths in the country due to cancer are in the state of Haryana.

Speaking on the association, Dr Jagprag Singh Gujral, Group Chief Executive Officer, American Oncology Institute said, “Traditionally, cancer has been considered a terminal ailment with uncertain prognosis and poor likelihood of survival. However, over the last few years technology-driven improvements in diagnosis and treatment have significantly improved survival rates. With best-in-class diagnostic modalities and treatment processes, protocols and standards, American Oncology Institute has been providing the best quality outcomes. We are happy to be associated with Sarvodaya Multi-specialty Hospital in serving the people of this region.”
