About Fortis Hospital, Gurgaon, New Delhi

The Fortis Memorial Research Institute, completed in mid 2012, is the latest Fortis hospital to open its doors to the public. Due to it's ground-breaking levels of luxury it has immediately become the flagship facility of Fortis and is positioned as the 'next generation hospital' with a vision to be the ultimate healthcare destination in India.

We were speechless when we visited a few months ago, just before it opened fully to the public. Make no mistake: this hospital sets a new standard for India, perhaps even a new standard for Asia. When you enter, it feels like stepping into vast, new, luxury shopping mall! It eve has a spa, health club, hammam and swimming pool to aid patient recovery.

You should be aware that this hospital does not have JCI accreditation, because it has not been opened long enough to apply yet (JCI will only accredit after 6 months). We are confident not only that Fortis Gurgaon will achieve JCI accreditation soon, but also that it will quickly develop as a hub for premium health travel. We will of course be reviewing this situation closely.

Radiotherapy at Fortis Hospital, Gurgaon, New Delhi

Radiotherapy, also known as radiation treatment, is the controlled use of high energy X-rays to treat many different types of cancer. About 4 out of 10 people with cancer have radiotherapy. 

Radiotherapy can be given in two ways. It can be given from outside the body (external radiotherapy) - using X-rays, small particles called electrons or, in rare cases, other particles such as protons; external radiotherapy is usually given once a day as a course of treatment over a number of days or weeks.
Radiotherapy can also be given within the body (internal radiotherapy, also known as brachytherapy) - either by drinking a liquid that is absorbed by the cancerous cells or by putting radioactive material into, or close to, the tumour, usually for a small number of treatments (brachytherapy) or by injecting or drinking a liquid that is absorbed by the cancerous cells - for example, radioiodine for thyroid cancer
