The institute will offer advanced surgical procedures such as limb salvage cancer surgery, breast reconstruction and oncoplasty, head and neck surgery with reconstruction and fertility preservation for gynaecological cancers. Necessary diagnostic and investigative procedures along with PET/CT for accurate cancer staging and treatment response assessment will be available at NMICC.

A multi-disciplinary approach through innovative treatment methodologies and prodigious clinical expertise will make NMICC the ground zero for India’s fight against cancer.”
The institute will also focus on psychological support and counselling of cancer patients and their families. Through disease-specific support group programs, the institute will promote sharing of personal experiences, coping mechanisms and the latest disease trends among doctors, cancer survivors and their families.
