Kolhapur Cancer Centre (KCC) was established in 2003 by a very proficient, dedicated and focused young professional surgeon Dr. Suraj Pawar with a vision of building a comprehensive Cancer Care Centre providing cancer treatment & services to the patients under one roof.
After receiving his training from Tata Memorial Hospital, Mumbai and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Centre,USA, Dr. Suraj Pawar followed his inner urge to practice in a region with a rural backdrop and serve the most needy cancer patients, for whom treatment was not easily accessible.
Supported ably by Dr. Reshma S. Pawar, Kolhapur Cancer Centre (KCC) soon had trained staff with the right amount of skill and expertise to create a world class Cancer Care environment.
