Specialty Surgical Oncology
Hospital and Research Centre
The first of its kind and Dr. Mehta’s brainchild, Specialty Surgical Oncology Hospital and Research Centre (specialtysurgicaloncology.com) at Ghatkopar, Mumbai, was founded with a vision of providing organ-specific cancer care of international standards. Dr. Mehta along with his team of professionals, performs almost all complex surgical procedures at highly economical rates. This includes CRS and HIPEC, complex hepato-pancreato-biliary surgeries and minimal invasive surgeries for various types of intra-abdominal cancers. They also provide pre and post HIPEC counselling, stoma care therapists along with dietary and nutritional guidance for patients undergoing major cancer surgeries.
Acknowledging the time-bound and resource-intensive nature of cancer treatment, Dr. Mehta also collaborated with the Tata Memorial Hospital to establish Reevive (reevive.org) – an online crowd-funding platform to support under- resourced cancer patients. The platform aims to bridge the gap between donors, pledgers and cancer patients through transparent donations and a hassle-free, impactful experience – because every cancer patient has the right to survive.
