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 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.

The incident rate of this type of cancer shows it occupies the third place after lung and stomach cancers and the second place as the cause of men’s deaths from the cancer. The incident rate is more than 400,000 people in a year and it keeps steadily growing.

  • The innovative technique of ultrasound ablation
  • The CyberKnife system of targeting radiotherapy
98% possibility of cure at the early stages of prostate cancer.
90% accuracy of prostate cancer diagnostics in Israel.

Causes of prostate cancer development and risk factors

The causes of cancer have not been yet identified. It has been associated with the excess concentrations of male hormone testosterone in blood. In addition, a multitude of observed factors significantly increases the risk of prostate cancer:

  • age-related hormonal changes (75% of cases occur among men older than 65 years);
  • unhealthy diet (high level of animal fats in food and low level of fiber);
  • inherited predisposition to the disease;
  • viruse infections (some type species of retroviruses);
  • the environmental effect (e.g. UV radiation);
  • the effect of cadmium (in rubber industry and typography etc.)

The occurrence of the prostate tumor is often proceeded by the following precancerous conditions:

  • benign prostatic hyperplasia;
  • intraepithelial neoplasia.

Symptoms of prostate cancer

The tumor of the prostate gland is characterized by two very unpleasant features. The first one is that the prostate cancer is almost free of symptoms at the early stages of its development. Symptoms appear after the tumor starting to spread throughout the body. These include:

  • weak and stuttering urine stream;
  • burning during urination;
  • sensation of incomplete emptying of the urinary bladder. The result is increased frequency of urination and defecation;
  • sometimes a decreased ejaculation and impotence may occur.

These symptoms are very similar to the manifestation of benign prostatic hyperplasia. This is the second feature of the disease and it often leads to incorrect diagnostics.

Further development of the disease defines other, more specific manifestations:

  • the appearance of red blood cells in urine;
  • the problem of urinary incontinence;
  • pain in the pubic region and the perineum.

In addition, the patient can notice typical symptoms of most cancers as weakness, fatigue, absence of appetite and weight loss, fall in hemoglobin level in blood.

For the successful treatment, it is important to detect the disease as early as possible. For this purpuse men are recommended to make preventive checkups at least once a year. It is very important that these checkups to be carried out by experienced doctors. The leading experts of Israeli hospitals successfully diagnose prostate cancer at the early stages that allows to begin treatment in proper time.

Diagnostics of prostate cancer in Israel

The diagnostic procedures for prostate cancer determination in Israel include both specific methods for malignant tumor detection and methods for determination of the expansion rate of metastases in the body. The first include:

  • Digital rectal examination of the prostate. It is conducted to detect the induration of the prostate, the analysis of mobility, structure and other features of the organ.
  • Ultrasonography of the prostate and urine bladder is the investigation of the prostate by means of ultrasonic wave. For a more detailed study it is also used Transrectal ultrasonography.
  • Uroflowmetry is a study of urine flow rate.
  • Blood tests for the tumor marker of a specific protein PSA, its level increases with the development of prostate tumor.
  • Biopsy is an investigation of prostate cells and their estimation under the Gleason grading system. The material for investigation is taken with local anesthesia under ultrasound machine.

The following techniques are used to determine the spread of cancer in body:

  • Ultrasonography of abdominal cavity organs.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and X-ray computed tomography (CT scan) give images of internal organs by means of a magnetic field and X-ray radiation.

The data obtained as a part of the study, allows Israeli doctors to diagnose prostate cancer, determine the degree of its development as well as the level of aggression, and assign the optimal treatment.

Methods of treatment of prostate cancer in Israel

The most preferred method of treatment at the early stages of prostate cancer is surgical treatment i.e. prostateсtomy. In the hospitals of Israel this surgery accounts as minimally invasive procedure and is produced by means of Da Vinci, modern robotic installation. It minimizes the risks of patient’s traumatism.

If surgery is contraindicated or metastasing takes place, the following treatment methods are used:

  • Teleirradiation of tumor and nearby lymphs by means of CyberKnife system.
  • Brachytherapy, the procedure of local irradiation by isotopes that are introducing into the tumor.
  • Ultrasound ablation is the destruction of the tumor by ultrasound exposure.
  • Cryoablation is the destruction of the tumor and the surrounding tissues by intervention of low-temperature materials.

It is noteworthly that prostate cancer can be well treated at its early stages.

At the later stages, prostate tumor is treated with radiation therapy, which is combined with hormone therapy. The aim of the hormone therapy is slowing the development of tumor by reducing testosterone level in blood. Chemotherapy and ultrasonic ablation are also applied at this stage.

Stage 2

Rehabilitation and prevention of recurrence of prostate cancer in Israel

After completing the course of treatment the patient is observed in hospital for at least another 10-14 days. The Israeli hospitals develop an individual rehabilitation program for each patient. Typically it includes follow-up of patient and, if necessary, treatment by such experts:

  • urologist (recovery of normal functioning of the bladder and intestines);
  • andrologist (potency recovery);
  • psychologist (psychic trauma management after treatment).

Recovery at resorts of the Dead Sea is also recommended.

After the rehabilitation, the patient returns home. Israeli Doctors recommend to repeate the course of rehabilitation after a year.

It is necessary to fulfill all directions of the attending doctor and undergo periodic examinations to prevent the recurrence of prostate cancer.

Cost of prostate cancer treatment in Israel

The cost of treatment in Israel depends on the occurrence of the disease, its stage, degree of tumor aggression and patient's individual characteristics. More information you can obtain from the specialists of the International Patients Support Center Bookimed.
