The patient was treated of brain tumor

I worked with bookimed to explore options for brain tumor surgery in Turkey. In less than 24 hours after filling out the form online with basic information, received a call from bookimed specialist. It was very helpful that Ivan Koval spoke both Russian and English. Upon sending patient's scans, Ivan was able to give his feedback on urgency of the matter and relayed all of that in both languages. Within one day, we received responses from 2 clinics. With Ivan's help we were able to evaluate both bids as well as quality of facilities. It was very reassuring that Ivan knew the names of the specialists that I had already researched. Since the parents of the child insisted that I made at least one contact directly with the clinic, the delay of the direct response and the quality of the bid were very disconcerting. Direct contact with a clinic was done by the clinic's administrative staff who began making contacts with orthopedist and ophthalmologist (based on symptoms caused by the brain tumor!). Contrary to the parents' expectations, direct contact was not "more economic" but turned out to be too vague and still unclear if the correct department was ever consulted. Ivan's situation was very difficult as he had to deal with a family who made decisions based on the cost (no regard for quality) and word of the mouth (no differentiation as to which procedure was done). He was very patient and compassionate to the fate of the child. Ivan was able to relay to the child's parents diagnosis, bids, comparisons, and complexity of the procedure to be performed. It takes several hours per day and several days to coordinate the correct diagnosis based on scans and numerous phone calls between different time zones to coordinate quick and accurate response. I received updates and calls as soon as they came in which implies that Ivan worked 24/7 to make the best arrangements. While my initial contact was a shot in the dark, over the course of few days I began to appreciate the sense of confidence that comes from having a trained medical specialist to represent your interests when "shopping" for a brain surgeon. No amount of googling and online reviews can substitute opinion from a trained medic in dealing with various clinics. At the end of the day, I feel that having Ivan to oversee the process from admission to the RIGHT clinic to take care of the RIGHT procedure (brain and not foot) all the way to discharge is a solid form of medical insurance.

Hope and faith work miracles. If you have hope and opportunity, you have to use it undoubtedly. And the first decision that springs to mind is the sole right. Everything was performed qualitatively, people are responsive. I want to say thank you to Sofia (Coordinator of International Patients Support), who helped us to make a right and sole choice. She provided us with all pros and cons, helped to make a right decision.

«I am disappointed»

I found out about this clinic on line,got in touch and went in for a specific treatment that they arehighly rated for with Dr. Elizur. Our initial contact,I trusted it will be helpful for me. I payed quite a lot of cash my visit of 15minutes consultation. I came home to where I live,Switzerland,emailed to schedule the actual procedure,very slow response,and at the end even calling his assistant didn't help,I gave up on the whole thing. No answer for a month now. Nu? I believe Dr. Should be there to help every patients equally with care and to give an answer. I really don't understand what goes on there.

Lung cancer treatment in Israel

Lung cancer is considered as one of the most dangerous malignant new formations:

  • Lung cancer is usually asymptomatic. Cancer of 1-2 stage is found during radiography, abdominal ultrasound, diagnostics and treatment of chronic inflammatory diseases;
  • The tumor spreads rapidly as far as this part of the body has peculiar characteristics of blood supply and lymphatic system (large blood vessels, strong bloodstream, extensive lymph ducts).

There could be distinguished the following types of lung cancer:

  • central lung cancer (70% of all cases) affects the main, lobar or intermediate bronchus. Is complicated by an abscess or pneumonia, aggravating diagnostics of the main disease;
  • peripheral lung cancer occurs in the segmental bronchi and their branches. To compare with the central lung cancer, symptoms of peripheral are more unclear - its 3 stage is not accompanied by a cough and hemoptysis;
  • combined lung cancer affects large bronchi and peripheral bronchioles.

Diagnostics of lung cancer in Israel

  • examination by an oncologist;
  • PET-CT of lungs helps to determine the origin of the tumor;
  • searching for atypical cells in sputum;
  • pleurocentesis (pleura involvement is checked);
  • bronchoscopy with biopsy (is applied if central cancer is suspected). Israeli clinics use bronchoscopes with integrated ultrasound;
  • mediastinoscopy, endoscopy of the superior mediastinum. Diagnostic puncture of lymph nodes is performed. The method allows to determine spreading process more accurately;
  • CT screening is carried out for a quick searching for metastases.
  • Pulmonary function test;
  • Bronchoscopy;
  • FDG PET/CT.

Methods of lung cancer treatment in Israel

If central lung cancer is found at its 1-A stage, Israeli oncologists remove a new formation endoscopically. Cryoablation (freezing), electrocautery, photodynamic impact on tumors are applied.

Peripheral cancer is treated with segmentectomy, removal of a segment of the lung lobe (a small piece of tissue).

At the 2-3 stage of lung cancer the lung lobe (lobectomy) or the entire lung is removed. In the latter case, a crucial role can belong to mediastinoscopy. The method shows if the second lung is affected with cancer development or not.

Complex treatment therapy of lung cancer includes:

  • chemotherapy, including targeted administration of drugs if the disease is limited. The structure of the lung makes it easy to create a high concentration of chemotherapeutic agents in a particular part of the organ, which is effectively used by Israeli oncologists;
  • radiotherapy is used after segmentectomy or lobectomy to prevent recurrences. Israeli oncologists use technologies to accurately and efficiently impact on foci in the lungs (adaptive strobing, Novalis etc.);
  • VATS - video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery, which is taken in the early stages of lung cancer, is proven to reduce mortality compared with open lobectomy (NCCN);

In addition to standard methods of radiation therapy (CT-planned 3D-CRT), several certified clinics apply advanced methods - 4D-CT and/or PET/CT simulation, IMRT/VMAT, IGRT, motion management, proton therapy.
