He offers his patients the best and most updated cancer treatment. He has been trained to administer chemotherapy, immunotherapy, targeted therapy, hormonal therapy and all possible medical interventions to cancer patients. Dr. Pradip Kendre is also trained for bone marrow procedures which is critical for cancer treating physician to know and practise.
Dr. Pradip Kendre looks after Mira Road and Borivali branch of Mumbai Oncocare Centre, a chain of cancer daycare centres and hospitals in Mumbai. Mumbai Oncocare Centre’s facility in Mira Road is meant for OPD / consultation for cancer patients. Those patients who are consulted and enrolled under Dr. Kendre are admitted and treated by giving chemotherapy and other related cancer medications.
Dr. Pradip Kendre works on a principle of multidisciplinary team decision making in cancer treatment. He always refers his patients to surgical oncologist / cancer surgeon or radiation oncologist / radiation treatment physician for cancer before or after administering chemotherapy as appropriate and recommended in the cancer treatment guidelines. All his cases are discussed with referring doctors / surgeons / radiation oncologists to take a collective decision about treatment of cancer patients. This methodology / protocol of treating cancer patients brings about the best treatment decision for any cancer patient. This makes Dr. Pradip Kendre a best cancer treating resource for patients in an area which is scarce of such resources.
Dr. Pradip Kendre has a vast experience of treating cancer patients of different cancer types during his residency as well as in the capacity of a full-time consultant at Mumbai Oncocare Centre. In an area like Mira Road where there is no dedicated Cancer doctor / physician / oncologist, he spends lot of time consulting and treating cancer patients in this Mira road and region around it. In fact, after Mira Road, there is no dedicated cancer centre for cancer patients and most of cancer patients from Mira Road down up to Vasai, Virar and Palghar had no option but to travel to city for their cancer treatment. Mumbai Oncocare Centre at Mira Road serves as a nearest possible cancer centre for all of them which is much accessible than to travel to town all the way.
Dr. Pradip Kendre is also involved in lot of cancer awareness activities and initiatives. He uses print media as well as other modalities of spreading general awareness about cancer, early diagnosis and right treatment of cancer etc, purely in the interest of society. He addresses many social gatherings in Mira Road, Vasai and Virar, talking about cancer awareness on various cancers like Breast Cancer, Ovarian Cancer, Stomach Cancer, Prostate Cancer, Head and Neck Cancer etc. Nasik being his hometown, he does lot of cancer awareness programs in Nasik as well, One of his famous initiatives is “Cancer Mukta Aai’ (Cancer Free Mothers) has gained lot of credibility and popularity in Nasik and areas surrounding it.
Dr. Pradip Kendre and Mumbai Oncocare Centre by far is a best, highly qualified cancer physician / doctor as a resource available in Mira Road, Virar, Vasai and whole of Thane district for the best and most appropriate treatment of cancer patients.
