Dr. R. Ravi Kannan is Director at Cachar Cancer Hospital and Research Center Silchar, Assam , India. He was a renowned oncologist from the Adyar Cancer Institute in Chennai. Later shifted to the Cachar Cancer Hospital and Research Centre, Silchar, Assam, where he is a surgical oncologist who is specialized in head and neck oncology and bone and soft tissue sarcoma.
His vision has turned a small cancer center into a full-fledged hospital in Assam’s Barak valley, a remote area on the Indo-Bangladesh border in Assam with limited access to medical care. He was running this hospital with few resources to provide better patient care to the cancer patients. The Hospital Society is also raising funds to support cancer patients including free of cost treatment including patient/family accommodation, food, and an employment center where able patients and attendants can work.
