Now, no amputation to cure breast Cancers


A Goa-based doctor has invented a technology that can save women from amputating their Cancer-infested breasts.

"The treatment, known as the Targeted Intraoperative Radiotherapy (TARGIT), can cure the fatal diseas in just 25 minutes," Dr Jayant Vaidya, who is currently placed in UK, said.

TARGIT treats the tumour by delivering radiotherapy within the breast. The patient can go home the same day the surgery is conducted, he said.

Vaidya, who began his research during his stint at Tata Memorial hospital in Mumbai, later perceived it in University College at London.

Vaidya has also worked on Intrabeam machine used for brain treatment. "The machine was developed for application on breast in 1996-98," he said.
