We at Nanavati Max Super Speciality Hospital strive to offer the most comprehensive paediatric cancer care in Mumbai, combining world-class science and technology to pioneer new ways to prevent, detect, and treat paediatric cancer.
For many of the malignancies that occur in childhood, the paediatric cancer program provides diagnostic evaluation and treatment plan under one roof. Our patient-centric approach to treat patients with the broadest possible range of available chemotherapies and access to potential therapies, help provide treatment to the most complex type of paediatric cancer cases.
With a large number of Paediatric Oncology and Haemato-oncology patients, Nanavati Max Hospital has become one of the largest oncology care centres in Mumbai. Cancer patients requiring bone marrow transplant/ haematopoietic stem cell transplant after chemotherapy, as a final curative option have also benefited at the facility.
