Malignancies such as Bone tumors, Lymphoma, Leukemia are quite common in children. Fortis hospitals provide comprehensive care for all the subsites of childhood cancers.
Recognising the special needs of children with cancer, our hospitals have designated areas for Paediatric patients. There is a special clinic for children in the outpatient department which is manned by Paediatric Nurses. We have a dedicated team of experts in the field of Paediatric Oncology.
Understanding the fear of needles amongst children, we use central vascular access devices like PICC line, Hickman Line and Portacath. These devices make the oncology treatment amongst children painless to an extent. All the blood sampling can be done through these devices and all the IV medications can also be given through these devices.
