«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.

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.

Stomach cancer treatment in Israel

Stomach cancer develops in epithelial cells of the mucous membrane of the organ and can be located in a fundal part of the stomach (fundic cancer) as well as in a place of connection of the organ with esophagus or intestine.

Stomach is an organ that constantly contacts with aggressive fluids, infections, and has mechanical contact with food. It results in constant death and regeneration of epithelium that increases chances for cancer development in this organ (especially with the aging). Male patients more often suffer from stomach cancer.

Stomach cancer treatment cost in Israel

Only in Israel

  • treatment is provided by internationally recognized oncologists and surgeons;
  • the latest diagnostic and treatment equipment;
  • Israeli oncosurgeons provide maximum conservative variants of gastrectomy - only affected area is removed. This approach significantly increases quality of life of a patient during postoperative period;
  • the most effective treatment programs and methods of chemotherapy.
80% treatment success rate for Stage 1 stomach cancer
60% survival rate for Stage 2 stomach cancer

Causes of stomach cancer

Risk of stomach cancer development has direct connection with chronic disorders - gastritis and ulcer disease. The second important cause is polyposis of mucous membrane. Transformation of inflammation into precancer and further into cancer takes from 10 to 20 years.

Factors that increase risk of gastric cancer development:

  • irregular eating of junk and rough food. Human organism is designed to eat at just the same time. If it doesn’t occur, the organism does not produce enough quantity of gastric fluid that causes irritation of stomach walls. Dry food scratches mucous membrane;
  • excess of Helicobacter pylori bacteria when mucous membrane is provoked (for example, hyperemia). Potentially pathogenic flora increases inflammation that increases a risk of malignization of the wall;
  • bad nutrition. Constant consumption of hot, greasy, preserved, smoked and fried food. Overeating;
  • nitrites and nitrates in food, mainly in vegetables. The same reason (presence of nitric acid in different compounds) applies for avoiding excess consumption of beer, dried fish and cheese;
  • alcoholism. Ethyl alcohol causes dystrophy of mucosa. Alcohol also increases negative impact of smoking and overeating that results in additional impact on mucosa;
  • constant intake of anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID group). Alteration and following cancer often develop against the background of drug-induced gastritis. During NSAIDs intake the drugs itself reduce a risk of oncological process but side effects of these medicines provoke cancer. It often occurs in patients with lumbago, arthritis and arthrosis;
  • radiation exposure, especially consumption of radioactive food;
  • patient who already had partial resection of the stomach (Billroth’s 1-2 etc.).

Manifestations of gastric cancer

The process is often asymptomatic. Stage 1-2A manifestations can be easily confused with general somatic diseases (patients aged over 50 have a lot of them):

  • the decrease of appetite, slight discomfort after meal;
  • there can be a rapid change of taste preferences – disgust to fish, meat and other products;
  • temperature increases up to subfebrile (37-380С);
  • sometimes relatives of a patient mention pale skin and mucosa – symptoms of early anemia.

Starting from Stage 2В, the process has manifestations, there can be:

  • obstructed gastric patency. Feeling of heaviness, nausea, quick saturation (combined with constant hunger). In severe cases there can be vomiting after meal (complete obstruction);
  • diarrhea, constipation, distention, pain resulted from bowel dilation by gases;
  • girdle pain when metastases spreads into pancreas;
  • metastases into the liver are ascites (fluid accumulation in the abdominal cavity);
  • sudden weight loss down to cachexia (complete exhaustion);
  • gastric hemorrhage.

Diagnostics of gastric cancer in Israel

  • gastroscopy with following biopsy (esophagogastroduodenoscopy) is a main diagnostic method. It evaluates the mucosa, examines suspicious area, samples biomaterial;
  • histology allows to confirm a diagnosis and specify invasiveness degree of the process;
  • abdominal ultrasound informs about location of a tumor and presence of large metastases;
  • multi-layer spiral CT, PET-CT allow to evaluate prevalence of the process;
  • MRI gives detailed information about tumor structure, level of its penetration into the tissues (for ulcerous form of disease);
  • blood tests can show involvement of pancreas and liver into malignant process.

Stomach cancer stages

Stage 1 gastric cancer

Stage 2 stomach cancer

Tumor in mucosa – endoscopic operation is indicated

Growth into submucous – a part of the stomach is removed

Stage 3 stomach cancer

Stage 4 stomach cancer

Penetrates into muscular layer – total gastrectomy

Spreads into neighboring organs – palliative treatment

Methods of stomach cancer treatment in Israel

  • endoscopic treatment at early stages. Is indicated for polyposis – maligned polyp is removed;
  • partial gastrectomy. A part of the organ with precancer or stage 1-2 cancer is removed and the patency is restored. Advantage of this method consists in preserving of deposit and partially digestive function of the organ;
  • total gastrectomy includes complete removal of the stomach and all affected organs and tissues. Considering, that cancer with this localization spreads quickly (good blood supply, lymph efflux), some cases require removal of the spleen, intestinal loops, pancreas, lobe of the liver. Plastic surgeries after gastrectomy consist in restoration of the patency (application of anastomoses or formation of stoma);
  • prior to the surgery and after it a patient undergoes courses of chemotherapy combined with beam exposure. Israeli doctors practice innovative methods for introduction of cytostatic drugs that significantly increases survival and treatment success rate for gastric cancer patients.

Rehabilitation after gastrectomy, prevention of stomach cancer relapse

It includes specific diet, split meals and attention of relatives. Walking outside, gymnastics (using abdominal bandage) are recommended. Adhesion of aponeurosis takes 5-6 months, a patient can have constipation and nausea during this period.

Physical therapy, saunas, hot and thermal baths are contraindicated. Pregnancy is contraindicated in women who had gastrectomy (minimum during 3 years).

During the first year a patient has to visit oncologist each 3 months. Later - each 6 months.

Gastric cancer treatment cost in Israel

  • relatively low percent of relapses after the treatment in hospitals of Israel allows to reduce total cost of a therapy;
  • cost of services in cancer centers in Israel are 20% less than the same in Germany, Switzerland or the USA;
  • price of the treatment for stomach cancer (including proper type of gastrectomy) can be found in advance. The same with diagnostic procedures.
