International Physicians Trained in Proton Beam Therapy by Apollo Proton Cancer Centre

News Desk, News Nation 360 : The first and biggest proton therapy centre in South Asia and the Middle East, Apollo Proton Cancer Centre (APCC), has the potential to completely transform healthcare worldwide. Working with Belgium-based IBA, a world leader in proton therapy, APCC just finished training its first group of distinguished medical professionals from Vietnam and Indonesia as part of a series of PBT training programmes. With the help of this project, India becomes the first nation in Southeast Asia to offer foreign oncologists a specialised proton beam therapy training programme. As a highly accurate and successful radiation therapy for a variety of cancers, proton beam therapy offers targeted tumour treatment with the least amount of damage to nearby healthy tissues. With over 1400 patients treated thus far—the youngest was a 10-month-old boy—APCC has improved the quality of life for cancer fighters through outstanding clinical outcomes. As the first cancer centre in India to introduce a PBT training programme, it opens a new era in collaborative cancer treatment and strengthens its standing as a leader in knowledge sharing and improving cancer care worldwide. There are plans to provide oncologists from Kazakhstan, Malaysia, Slovenia, and the Philippines with comparable training programmes. Dr Preetha Reddy, Executive Vice Chairperson of Apollo Hospitals Enterprises Limited, emphasized the transformative impact of their collaboration with IBA and stated that This partnership demonstrates their commitment to creating international healthcare alliances. By combining their skills and strengths, they greatly increase their ability as a group to combat cancer globally. The training programme is a turning point in their collaboration because it allows for the free flow of knowledge across boundaries. It provides oncologists with state-of-the-art knowledge about Proton Beam Therapy worldwide. This partnership is an obvious example of their shared goal of democratising access to cutting-edge medical care globally and bringing about a new era in which everyone can afford cutting-edge treatments. The following dignitaries also graced the event: Adviser, (Industry & Engineering), Embassy of India to Belgium who joined virtually N Ashok Kumar (virtually), the Indian Ambassador in Indonesia; Dadang Hidayat, Minister Counsellor, Embassy of the Republic of Indonesia, New Delhi; and Basir Ahmed, Deputy Chief of Mission.
