The patient was treated of melanoma

In January of last year, I learned my exact diagnosis - melanoma. Friends and acquaintances categorically did not advise me to undergo treatment in Russia. All strongly recommended to go to Israel for the treatment of melanoma. After sending a request to Ichilov, I was surprised at the speed of response. Immediately decided to fly it there. In Russia they gave me a forecast that I would not live more than six years. And in Israel they told me: "We will cure you!"
The operation was conducted in several stages. And they really fulfilled their promise. During treatment in Israel, I saw many people from Russia who came to "remodel" operations, after Russian "masters." And everything, absolutely everyone I saw, were satisfied with the quality of treatment and service.

The patient was treated of brain cancer

My name is Makpal Turkbaeva. I am writing with Almaty, Kazakhstan. I was lucky five years ago to get into your clinic and have an operation to remove the meningioma in the left temporal parietal part of the most professional neurosurgeon doctor Z. Kohen.

First and foremost, I am very grateful to him, for the fact that he gave me the happiness of having a full healthy life that I now have. And also many thanks to all the medical personnel and the staff of the medical center of Shiba clinic (Tina, Jana, Rina) for responsible work on the patients, for support in the most difficult period of life, for professional organization in hospitalization and treatment, for creating all the conditions of the post-rehabilitation period.

Often people who have health problems come to me with questions about your clinic, and, listening to me, admire you, since my story looks like a fairy tale for them. I, having lived to 30 years old, having a one-year-old son and a pregnancy at 4 months, underwent three operations in Almaty, which followed one after the other, and led to the main cause of my disease - a malignant brain tumor that could only be eliminated from you - so decided my close people. And no matter how complicated the flight to your country was by transit through Istanbul, when I, with a high pressure, a terrible headache, just not lifting my head in the plane, lying on the seats, reached Istanbul, where the airport staff all me was fumbled with a transfer to Tel Aviv, I think that all the bandages wrapped on my body, the stitches after two operations in Almaty, can look like a girl-terrorist.

I just did not understand what was happening to me when I arrived in Israel, I was met by an ambulance car, delivered quickly to the reception point of the Shiba clinic, where, immediately, I was immediately taken for transfusion after dehydration on the flight, and only when I came to, after all the primary examinations at the reception, I was registered.

Many things surprised me in the Shiba clinic: the professional quick reception of the patient, a two-day preparation for the operation (taking tests, examination of doctors), the operation itself 11 hours after which the day came to, the obligatory doctor's request already from the third day after the operation - more to move, not to lie, frequent washing yourself, including the head, which was so strange to me, because it would have been different in my homeland after such a long operation, I probably would have stayed in the hospital for a long time, with a prohibition to swim, etc. Yes, it was amazing when I was discharged on the sixth day after the operation. And a month after the operation, flying home in Almaty, I again returned for laser therapy.

To date, I'm alive and well, all these five years, as it should be with us, was registered with a local oncologist, conscientiously visited neuropathologists and other doctors who with great interest read my extract from Shiba Hospital, where there was a qualified description of the operation performed, and every six months, conducted an MRI of the head, and in each of them, my position is excellent - there is no tumor growth time.

I once again thank your clinic and the most important person who made me happy - Dr. Coyen !!!

The patient underwent artificial insemination (ivf)

During these seven long and painful years, we had to endure so much pain and tears, doubts, unjustified hopes and disappointments after each failed attempt of ECO in Kazakhstan, that we were practically on the verge of divorce. The last attempt to conceive a child, we decided to take in Israel - in the clinic Shiba! When we arrived in Shibu we were assigned two charming, kind and sympathetic coordinators - Larisa Goldberg and Vera Gerov, thanks to the efforts of which, as well as all doctors and nurses, we had a happy family in the family, and in the world there was more one Kazakh! The Kazakhs say: "Bir zhan duniege alyp kelsen - mans yang alyp kelesin!" (Who gives life to one - gives it to thousands!). I want to dedicate these wise words to Vera and Larissa, thanks to the help and help of which another tiny heart has hammered! Many thanks to the girls for your professionalism, warmth and responsiveness, and a low bow to you! We love you very much and often remember looking at our beloved daughter! Many thanks to all the staff of the clinic, just familiar and unfamiliar, living on holy Israeli land! I wish that in your life every day there were events, when from happiness you would also like to embrace the whole world and all around the world!
With great respect and love,

The patient was treated of breast cancer

More than 5 years ago, we diagnosed in Moscow - breast cancer of the 2nd stage. They wanted to be treated first at home - at home, but the doctor advised the clinic in Israel. Read about the clinic Shiba, turned to the department of international tourism. The next day I received an invitation and went with my daughter to the clinic. We were met, escorted to the clinic, conducted by doctors. A few days later I was operated on by Moyshe Papa. Thank God, I'm fine, I managed to save my breast, which was not promised in Moscow. Every six months I go to the examination. Yes, it's not cheap, but life is worth it.

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 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 !!!

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.

On the same day after inspection the specialist conducts:

  • Dermatoscopy is a noninvasive method that allows doctor to assess the condition of the cells of both surface and bottom layers of the skin;
  • Biopsy;
  • Cytologic screening;
  • Blood tests for tumor markers.

The diagnostics is based on the histopathological inspection of the material obtained by biopsy. If necessary, in the second or third day doctor examine the lymph nodes and internal organs to detect possible metastasis. In this case the diagnostic program includes the following researches:

  • Ultrasound;
  • MRI;
  • CT and PET-CT.

In total the diagnostic program takes 3-4 days.

Skin cancer like the other ones has staging. Stage determination is an important task of the diagnostic program for making an effective treatment regimen.

At the same time the surgeon removes nearby tissues to prevent the possibility of leaving cancer cells. If there are the indications after examination, regional lymph nodes are removed.
  • Cryotherapy in combination with a laser at the early stages of the disease is the destruction of the tumor by means of liquid nitrogen or laser.
  • Later stages require systemic treatment methods for the ending of the spread of metastasis as chemotherapy, radiation therapy, biotherapy and targeted therapy.

The patient was treated of melanoma

I was diagnosed with melanoma T1. The thickness of 1 cm. Moscow doctors said that if there are metastases to the lymph nodes, they are insignificant. On one site, I discovered a thing like a biopsy of sentinel lymph nodes. As it turned out - this is the most important thing in the early stages of melanoma. I sent inquiries to Israeli clinics specializing in this type of treatment. The first responded from Assuta, and given a detailed plan for diagnosis (biopsy) and treatment). I chose them. Upon arrival, they met, spent, placed and assigned the time of diagnosis. In the beginning, there was a consultation with Professor Schlembaum. The fact that I will be treated by the professor - already testifies to a lot. Details of the subsequent diagnosis and operation will not be discussed in detail. I will say only that the level of service and service has amazed me, there are simply no words! Thanks Assut!

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.

Thanks to the Bookimed guys for their support at all stages! I managed to combine the survey with the trip and it was the right decision :) A few words about the clinic: Doctors are attentive and pay maximum attention to details, quickly with the help of analyzes, they eliminated all possible options and got to the bottom of the problem. Repeated consultations provided comprehensive information on the course of treatment. It is important that all the doctors said that I can email them if necessary. Anyone who thinks whether it is worth the money or not, I will say what it costs, since you will get the answers to all your questions and you will be sure of the treatment. Thanks again for the organization!

And the narrow specialization of doctors make it one of the best in the world. I am very grateful to the Bookimed consultants who helped me choose the Ichilov Medical Center. You really know what you pay money for! Thanks to my consultants, Ostap and Yulia for their work ..
