Brachytherapy is also performed for prostate cancer treatment. Specialists apply brachytherapy with the help of portable CT unit that makes radioactive seeds place in the exact spot needed.

For breast cancer treatment, the oncologists carry out the intensity-modulated radiation therapy. This method is based on covering the treatment area with the high number of beams. This treatment option helps to preserve heart and lung function.

Oncologists treat lung cancer in the early stages using implantable positioning devices for more efficient treatment.

Surgeons perform stereotactic radiosurgery with the high doses of radiation to cure pancreatic cancer and brain tumors. Pancreatic cancer treatment takes up to 5 sessions. Metastatic brain tumors are treated with the high doses of radiation for 1 day.

The patient was treated of klatskin's tumor

I addressed a problem in the hepatobiliary system. Coordinator assured me that the clinic specialize in oncology and specifically in this direction too. Unfortunately, it is not. After 12 days of overdiagnosis and treatment, I feel worse than I came. Pat diagnosis could not be established. Doctor "oncologist" is not even a diagnosis on the international classification Bismuth- Corlette (saying that the tumor is not poddaetsya classification). He offered chemistry, given that the chemistry without surgical lechniya this tumor is not effective. The worst thing is that they did not offer alternative (surgical) treatment. They do not do such complicated operations. Maybe they are in the treatment of other oncology and spetsializiruyutsya, but in terms of the hepatobiliary system, zero balls. Very disappointed with the work of the coordinator, who focused on the operation and even co-ordinated on the cost. Paliative treatment is not a cure. If the coordinator did not believe me in Turkey, I would consider Israel or Germany. In the end, Ukraine and Russia are doing these operations. Thank you, co-ordinator for flights from drains and spent two weeks in the hospital with pain on their treatment.

The patient was treated of breast cancer

Doctors of the clinic are qualified, speak English well. But the organization of treatment, that is, all these coordinators and translators already when you are in India, is a huge minus of the process. Simply huge. Expectations of everything and everywhere for hours, sometimes at times, poor awareness, a terrible accent on Russian, that one can understand a lot to the exact opposite, ignorance of medical terms, that is, only life can translate. I accompanied mamutna treatment, I speak English a little, therefore something accelerated due to this. One patient should not go, look for an accompanying person if other countries do not fit the prices for treatment. If someone is traveling alone or an accompanying person does not know English, the process will spoil your nerves. The very examination and treatment, surgery, everything is at a good level. But before the ability to organize everything painlessly for the patient, it will still come to BLK not soon. I do not know, as in other clinics in India, I think it's the same. Translators are different here, and the problems are the same. So in the whole country I think. But if there is no way out, you can entrust local doctors to the health. The patient is well fed in the hospital and the accompanying person. Chambers of any size isolate the patient with curtains around the perimeter, you see only the staff, but keep in mind that the multiple rooms are very noisy. Who prays in Arabic for the whole room, who sings the song, who plays the game with sound effects, who is screaming on the phone, because there is still no silence, people still have groans for the illnesses of people ... they do not do anybody for unconnected phones, loud talks and other inadequacy.
