The patient was treated of lung cancer

Six months ago, my father was diagnosed with lung cancer. There was already stage 3, and our doctors said it was too late to do anything. But we decided that since we can not be cured here, this does not mean that we will not be helped abroad. Considered a lot of options, both Germany and Austria, but decided to go to Israel. Still, the medicine there is somewhat cheaper.
The father was treated in Assut. The clinic is very good, and the doctors in it are real professionals. Dad passed a course of chemotherapy with radiation, then an operation was performed. In general, the father feels well. We are very grateful to the doctors of the clinic.

The patient was treated of brain tumor

In January, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor. I was shocked, and with trembling hands I began to search for treatment options. From the first minute of conversation with a representative of honey. I started to calm down and look at the whole picture more clearly. In the clinic I was accompanied and helped in everything. Remarkable Dr. Zibli explained everything in all the details and the professional translation of Dianochka (my escort) was simply impeccable. The treatment is successful and I am full of hope.

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.

The patient was treated of breast cancer

I want to share my experience of diagnosis in Rambam. There was a suspicion of breast cancer. It was necessary to confirm the diagnosis. I sent them a request on 02 January. Have told, how the process of the organization of treatment operates. In 3 days I received a call from the clinic. A week later, there was a first consultation with a doctor mammologist Drome. The total price for all came out 5500 dollars. All the diagnostics took 3 days. Then another 5 days, I was waiting for the results of the biopsy. As a result, there was another meeting where the diagnosis was confirmed. But now I know exactly what and how to treat me! But I have an initial stage and no metastases. There is hope for a cure.

The patient was treated of breast cancer

In Moscow, local doctors tormented me for two months! Only a puncture (not a biopsy) 2 times took! And with the assumption of "breast cancer" was sent to an operation to remove the entire breast ("so reliable"). After two months of torment, I decided to go to Israel. I found the clinic Rambam. Have made a biopsy and diagnostics. They decided that at my stage it makes no sense to remove the entire chest. We decided to remove only one lymph node. So the breast will be saved !!!

The patient was treated of stomach cancer

When to me in Moscow have diagnosed a cancer of a stomach - I thought that to us this my life has ended.
I did not know where to go, what to do? After a short search for information on the Internet, I decided to contact the Israeli clinic "Rambam". Orgprovodovi practically imperceptibly grew into the operation itself. They took on all the issues of flight, diagnosis and operation. The price / performance ratio is simply excellent!
Now under no circumstances go to our hospitals I do not want.

The patient was treated of lung cancer

When lung cancer was detected, we were advised to contact Israel, namely to the Shiba clinic, since our friends had already been treated there. Through the Internet we contacted the clinic and, after sending all the necessary results of the tests, we were promptly sent an invitation for treatment.

Arriving in Israel, we were pleasantly surprised by the attitude of the medical staff to all patients.
After carrying out the necessary examinations, the doctors of the thoracic department decided to perform the operation by puncturing, using the topic apparatus (anthropogenic source of radiation used in the treatment), and not the cavity as they were going to do in Russia. All the medical staff of the department was very attentive and caring, for which they thank you in particular.

On the 7th day after the operation, my mother was discharged, and after 10 days we were at home in Voronezh, (before doctors did not recommend a flight.)

Summing up my words I want to sincerely and wholeheartedly say thank you to the doctors of the Shiba clinic, who saved my mother, tk. Mom is the most precious person in life.

The patient was treated in this clinic

Carried mom to consult a neurologist about the trigeminal neuropathy. Were at doctor Pujol. The doctor really liked, it is clear that he understands the question and is competent, explained the possible options, corrected the medical treatment. We are still on it. You may need surgical treatment. Coordinator Svetlana always answered questions, provided information about clinics. Coordinator Alexander helped with tickets. The clinic provides its own translator-consultant who helps with everything. But for convenience, I spoke with the doctor in English, Dr. Pujol speaks English. There were no clinics in the hospital, so I can’t say anything about it.
