system which meets the special dietary requirements of cancer patients while
not compromising with the taste. The food is prepared in a hygienic environment

Beverage department and our facility being awarded an “Eat Right Campus” &

From diagnosis to treatment, people experiencing the cancer
treatment journey often face emotional and physical trauma. Along with the
individuals undergoing treatment, caregivers usually experience equal levels of
stress, sometimes even more. At Balco Medical Centre, our qualified Clinical

The dental department at Balco Medical Centre goes beyond
the scope of general dental treatment to include management of the mouth’s soft
tissues and care for treatment side effects specific to oral cavity. Our
trained and experienced dentist plays a vital role throughout cancer treatment
by preventing and managing mouth sores, dental needs, oral pain and infections.
For head and neck cancer patients and those on medication for bone damage, continuing
dental care is very crucial.
Balco Medical Centre offers rehabilitation services, which
includes a wide variety of therapies that are designed with the goal of helping
patients to build strength, reduce stress, increase endurance, regain
independence and sustain the energy needed to continue treatment and
participate in daily activities.
Physiotherapists at Balco Medical Centre help with regaining
movement and avoiding complications after cancer surgeries. They play a key
role in assessing and rehabilitating balance, co-ordination, strength and
mobility in patients whose cancer affects their nervous system.
Physiotherapists teach and assist patients treated for various cancers like breast,
prostate and haematological cancer to perform various exercises that improves
mobility, fitness, muscular strength, and quality of life. They also consult to
minimise the risk of developing lymphoedema, and, offer lymphoedema management.
Patients undergoing treatment for Head & Neck cancer
experience trouble in both speech and swallowing, which in turn affect the
patient's quality of life and ability to survive in the society. At Balco
Medical Centre, we offer speech and swallowing therapy during the first 3
months post-treatment to get maximum benefits like understandability of speech,
as judged by naive listeners, percent accuracy of production of consonant
sounds and oropharyngeal swallow efficiency on liquid and paste.
