Located at Nallagandla Serilingampally in Hyderabad, A.P., American Oncology Institute (AOI) provides comprehensive cancer care matching standards from top US hospitals. Operated by parent company Cancer Treatment Services International, AOI is the only cancer hospital in A.P. managed by American medical experts.
Dr. M. Babaiah MD, South India's preeminent radiation oncologist, serves as AOI's Medical Director. Renowned surgeon Dr. Chandrasekhar Rao MS MCh directs AOI's Surgical Oncology Department, which operates in partnership with Citizens Hospital and features the state's only true organ-based surgical oncology team. Dr. Buddharaju MD, with 20 years of Board Certified practice experience in the US, is Chief of Medical Oncology and Hematology.
In addition to providing the same level of cancer care found at top hospitals in the US, AOI features state-of-the art technology such as:
TrueBeam linear accelerator: TrueBeam is the most powerful, precise and versatile linear accelerator available worldwide. Only 3 centers in all of India have TrueBeam, and AOI is the only center in Andhra Pradesh to offer TrueBeam, an amazing treatment tool.
Calypso System: Calypso is the only technology platform designed to provide real-time tracking of a tumor, without added ionizing radiation. It leads to unprecedented accuracy and safety during radiation treatment and is not available anywhere in Southeast Asia besides AOI.
4-D PET/CT: 4-D PET/CT is a cutting-edge imaging tool available at AOI and in only three other Indian hospitals. Imaging with 4-D PET/CT plays an integral role in allowing AOI to offer therapy options its competitors cannot.

Weekly tumor board meetings: AOI doctors discuss their cases with US-based, American Board-certified oncologists to ensure the cancer care delivered by AOI matches the care offered at top US cancer centers.
