A 63-year-old lady with last stage breast cancer gets a new lease of life in Wockhardt Hospital Nagpur
A 63-year-old lady who has detected breast cancer which recurred even after surgery is now leading a normal life after starting target therapy in Wockhardt hospital Nagpur.
The lady was diagnosed with recurrent breast cancer in 2019 and was operated on soon after. However, after the surgery, her cancer spread to her lungs. The family of this patient, after consulting with a few doctors, chose to get her treated by Dr. Vaibhav Choudhary, Consultant- Medical Oncology, Wockhardt Hospitals, Nagpur.
The patient underwent treatment with Dr. Choudhary after being explained the entire case and the fact that they were suggested to take ‘Targeted therapy’ (Targeted therapy is a type of cancer treatment that uses drugs or other substances to precisely identify and attack certain types of cancer cells).
“The patient required admission for supportive care for 13 days including 3 days in ICU with assisted ventilation and was given targeted therapy for her treatment”, informed Dr. Choudhary. “She gave a good response to the therapy and was discharged successfully after being on the verge of demise”, he added.
The above patient was brought to Wockhardt Hospital in an emergency after her situation was degrading at her home. Since her admission, she has been a regular patient of Dr. Choudhary.
“Wockhardt Hospitals are known for high-end treatment in the entire region. We have handled many cases which various other healthcare providers have been unable to treat. This particular case showcases our expertise in personalized cancer care”, said Mr. Abhinandan Dastenavar, Centre Head, Wockhardt Hospitals, Nagpur.
