Organisation profile

The Division of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology established in November 2019 under the Manipal Comprehensive Cancer Care Centre, Kasturba Medical College, Manipal. The division has a 24 bedded pediatric hematology and oncology ward with state-of-the-art induction rooms with HEPA filters to prevent infections. The ward is ideal for all childhood cancer treatment including bone marrow transplantation. The ward also features a day care unit for OPD based blood transfusion and chemotherapy. The chemotherapy is prepared under laminar flow with strict asepsis. The division also has dedicated pediatric oncology nutritionist, separate social worker and pediatric nurses trained in oncological aspects. The unit is managed by doctors trained in well reputed institutions from India.

As our motto is to treat all children with cancer irrespective of socio-economic status, there is a pediatric cancer care fund which makes sure that no child with cancer abandons treatment due to financial constraints. The division works with NGO’s like Indian Cancer Society, One good Step, Aroh Foundation, Yuvraj Singh Foundation, Leukemia crusaders, AccessLife Foundation and Cuddles foundation which are dedicated towards supporting children with cancer by providing monetary support for treatment, human resources and nutritional supplementation.

The treatment protocols followed by the division are the ones that are presently standard of care in most cancer centers in our country. The outcomes of cancer treatment are comparable to big cancer centers in India.
