Proton beam therapy peculiarities at the PTC in the Czech Republic

Nowadays proton beam therapy is considered as the most advanced and safe method for cancer treatment both for adults and children. It affects only tumor/tumor cells, not damaging normal tissues. Proton beam therapy has minimum side effects, low complications risks and high results.

At the Czech Proton Therapy Center radiation therapies vary from 5 to 40 sessions in accordance with the patient’s diagnosis. While the procedure is conducted once a day, the hospitalization at the Center is optional. One session of proton beam therapy lasts not longer 60 minutes. The whole course of treatment at the Center takes from 2 to 8 weeks.

The only exception for hospital stay is for children. Moreover, the proton beam therapy in children is performed under anesthesia, as they are very active and cannot stay immovable for a long time.

The patient underwent diagnostic

In order Bookimed was advised by a friend when she was diagnosed and the question arose of confirming it and obtaining a treatment protocol. Unfortunately, due to the nature of the diagnosis, Ukraine could not be considered. In general, everything seems confusing when far from medicine and you do not understand how further. 1. At night, Bookimed wrote - in the morning they called, identified the coordinator Daria (medical unit), they received copies of the test results, consulted and suggested further actions: clinics, expenses, etc. I chose Anadolu (Turkey), although Turkey was not considered Turkey at first , but having studied the info on the Internet and the reviews made a decision. 2. Logistics (flight, transfer, resettlement, etc.) organized by Barbara. Tickets, reservations, and so on — we didn’t do at all.) Now I wondered if there were any rust or comments — but no, everything was clear, correct, prompt responses, constant communication and full support. That's really all at a decent level. 3. By hotels: it was possible to choose on the territory of Anadolu or nearby (there was a list of hotels that provide transfer to the clinic) I decided that it would be boring on the territory of Anadolu, some patients and chose Elite hotel darica, in the hope that in addition to the clinic I would not have to be in the room. Hotel standards, but in early December, the kitchen is empty and very sad. But the room is spacious, modern - ok, were not hungry, although probably for all my trips and hotels - it was the most meager breakfast and dinner. But in the room kettle, which was very useful to us. Friendly staff 4. In the Medical Center Anadolu accompanied Suleiman. In general, at all stages - accompanying higher praise. They know their business: correct, unobtrusive, but leading and most importantly constructive. 5. The clinic itself: a large, bright, modern, functional, no frills, but it became very sad that there is simply nothing like this in Ukraine. Reception in the queue, waiting for reception for a couple of hours, but the chairs are incredibly comfortable, you can be in the Cafe (there are also sofas, there are different snacks) - they will call. There is a dining room, but there is a clear time for breakfast, lunch and dinner. In short, there are no comments when they immediately warn you that you need to wait and the waiting conditions are comfortable. 6. Reception at prof. Zafera Gulbash: there is nothing special to write, most of the techniques of normal clinics, the behavior of doctors is professional, the examination, the study of test results, the questions and the definition of further actions, the tests are done quickly, all electronically immediately on the monitor for the doctor. The doctor has caused trust. 7. It should be noted that we are at the very beginning: reviewing the diagnosis. Conclusion: everything and support from Bookimed and being in Anadolu was comfortable in all respects. We move on. I definitely recommend

The patient was treated of breast cancer

Very, very pleased with the interaction with Bookimed. Has been treated for breast cancer. In November 2018, she flew to Istanbul, Medipol and Anadolu clinics for examination. Helped with tickets, travel arrangements, always stayed in touch. The coordinator from Bookimed has a medical education, can qualitatively advise on clinics, doctors. For me personally, this is a big plus. Before that I was treated in Israel, I organized everything on my own and spent incomparably more time, energy and nerves. I will work with Bookimed in the future and recommend it to my friends.
