Now that you know the emotional aspect of his treatment, let's talk about the professional aspect of the treatment.
Just as any other medical oncologist in Mumbai that's Dr. Suresh Advani also offers cancer treatment through Chemotherapy and other types of therapy like Targeted therapy.
Chemotherapy: Chemotherapy is often generalized as a cancer treatment. Chemotherapy is the use of drugs to cure any cancer. It will affect the whole body, unlike surgical and radiation therapy which might be used on targeted areas only but chemotherapy is used on the whole body so that it can cure cancer that has metastasized to other parts of the body i.e. far from a primary tumour. The main goal of chemotherapy is:
Cure: If Dr. Suresh Advani feels that cancer can be cured, he uses chemotherapy to kill the cancer cells. Just as many doctors who do not use the word curable, he also uses the phrase CURATIVE INTENT
Control: Just like some other chronic diseases like Diabetes, some cancers also cannot be cured. In such cases, Dr. S H Advani uses chemotherapy to control cancer by reducing the tumor size or stop it from growing further thus ensuring that the patient may feel better and live longer. Sometimes, cancer seems like it has gone away but it comes back after some time. Chemotherapy can be used again for this type of situation.
Palliation: When Dr. S H Advani has diagnosed cancer to be at an advanced stage, he treats the patient with what is known as a palliative chemotherapy or palliation which is not used to cure or control cancer but it is used to comfort a patient.
Doctor Advani uses the following factors to determine the combinations of the medicines to be used upon the patients:
Dr. Advani is also very careful while calculating the doses to be given to the patient as the doses can have life-threatening side effects. He takes into consideration various aspects of age, gender, height and weight, blood counts, kidney diseases etc
Targeted therapy: Targeted Therapy is where the medication used is supposed to act upon select cancer cells. It is the most advanced form of chemotherapy and researchers are going on to help all the cancer patients. Dr. S H Advani is a key member in the research of Target Therapy and he has been the reason for the introduction of many new drugs which have helped the survival of many cancer patients.
Bone Marrow Transplant: Dr. Advani is a renowned expert in the field of bone marrow transplant, in fact, he is the first doctor to have performed a successful bone marrow transplant in India wherein he treated a nine years old girl for myeloma. His learnings from abroad where he learned from a noble prize award winner helped him achieve the success. He has performed many studies in the field of bone marrow transplant and is considered the foremost expert in India.
Procedure: During bone marrow transplant Dr. Advani will take stem cells from your bone marrow which then will be stored until you have gone through radiotherapy. Radiotherapy tends to kill your stem cells along with the cancer cells. So the stem cells need to be injected back into the body. He inserts them into your veins through a pipe. They will find their way back to the bone marrow and will help the patient produce enough cells for recovery.The stem cells are either collected from the patient or a suitable donor.
