Like O&G, the Department of Radiation Oncology holds a special place in the country providing Cancer treatment since 1953 when a 30 curie Cobalt-60 unit was commissioned with technical co-ordination and support provided by Late Dr. Homi Bhabha, the then Chairman of Atomic Energy Establishment, Trombay, later renamed as Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC). Since then, the Radiation Oncology Department has achieved various milestones and distinctions. In 1994, the Department of Radiation Oncology was recognised as first Regional Cancer Centre for Uttar Pradesh by the Government of India.
