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 was treated of chronic glomerulonephritis

Professor Dr. Murat Tunzer is a professional in his field. Not in a hurry, spent a detailed inspection. A good psychologist, can calm down. It will be possible to judge how correct treatment was prescribed in a few months. Separately, I would like to mention Dr. Ferdavs Akhmedov, who acted as not only a translator, but also a full-fledged consulting doctor, also helped orient in the city with some other issues not related to medicine. The test results were prepared very quickly, while the technical equipment allows for a wide range of tests. The coordinator from the site, Svetlana, helped a lot by providing extended answers to all questions, did not impose expensive clinics or unnecessary procedures, always quickly answers questions and takes initiative in the process of contacts with clinics. Due to the fact that the clinic prevents the transfer from the airport to the clinic, from the clinic to the hotel and from the hotel to the airport, looking for a hotel close to the clinic is not so critical. We were not warned that the road from Sabiha Gokcen Airport is in the process of being renovated and the detour will take more than an hour. Plus, the driver did not know Russian and English. It made him worry first, until he called the English-speaking doctor. This is the only negative.

The patient was treated of vaccination

We were satisfied with the bookimed service and the clinic in Vienna, which we were selected. In Vienna, everything was as comfortable as possible. We were met by a driver at the airport and taken to the hotel. In the morning was taken to the clinic. I liked everything - the coordinator, the doctor and the translator. Already recommend to our friends.

The patient was treated of diabetes type 2

All liked it. There are not enough translators and therefore girls translators are always under stress. Well, they are great. Doctors, coordinators and equipment liked everything. Minus that the clinic is far from the city and transfer from the clinic only once.
