Journey

Dr Vivek Bansal has graduated from the prestigious Tata Memorial Hospital, Mumbai and has done his M.D., DNB in Radiation Oncology in 1992. Thereafter, he worked as the Senior Registrar for three years in the same before shifting to PD Hinduja Hospital, Mumbai in 1996 as Associate Consultant. He was instrumental in starting India’s first 3D conformal treatment there and also worked with Gamma Knife Radiosurgery, an advanced technique at that time offering high precision.

The turning point of his career was when he shifted to Goraj Hospital near Vadodara (Gujarat) in 2000 as the Head of the Department. Over there, he started one of India’s most modernized and specialized departments for Cancer treatment with cutting-edge technology including- Intensity Modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) and India’s first Integrated Brachytherapy Unit (IBU).

With 14 years of experience by that time, he was approached by the CBCC Apollo Hospital in 2006, where he went on to become the Director of Radiation Oncology. He pioneered South Asia’s first Image Guided Radiotherapy (IGRT) unit there. This is the most widely used technique now in the field of Radiotherapy, offering great accuracy. After 3 successful years at CBCC Apollo, Dr. Vivek Bansal worked as the Senior Consultant at Rajiv Gandhi Cancer Institute, Delhi from April 2009 till February 2011. Over there, he worked on IGRT in Prostate, Gall Bladder and Gynaecological cancers. His other areas of interest are Image Guided Adaptive Brachytherapy (IGABT) an upcoming area in Brachytherapy.

In 2011, he moved on to become the Director of the Department of Radiation Oncology at the HCG Cancer Hospital, Ahmedabad. He worked with India’s first “TRUEBEAM” LINAC from VARIAN USA. This equipment is a new platform with the precision of less than a millimeter, offering extremely effective and safe treatment. Dr. Vivek Bansal started India’s first Flattening Filter Free Beam (FFF) treatment which helps in much shorter treatment time for SBRT treatment, which is one of latest developments in the field of Radiotherapy.

Not only has he contributed to the field of treatment, but also to the field of medical education and research, having published various papers in multiple fields. Few others are in the process of publishing, including a chapter for a college-based textbook, on the role of radiotherapy in gastrointestinal cancers. He has presented his initial data regarding IGRT at the Varian User’s Meet in Malta, Europe, and has been invited to speak at many prestigious national and international conferences over the years.

In 2016, he shifted to Sterling Cancer Hospital, Ahmedabad and is currently working there. He will be working with India’s first Truebeam STX (SVC model), having a 6D couch with a High Defintion Multi Leaf Collimator which can be used to treat SRS and SBRT with sub-millimeter accuracy. The treatment planning system possesses a biological planning capability which can define a tumor more precisely and hence can be targeted with minimal damage to surrounding tissue.

He is known for his sincerity and dedication towards his work. Over his 22 years of experience (and still counting), he has carved a niche for himself in the world of Radiation Oncology. He has also built a special bond with his patients over the years, establishing trust along with a sense of comfort.
