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.

Treatment of thyroid cancer in Israel

Thyroid cancer is a rare oncological disease with a very high chance of being cured. The disease affects the thyroid gland, the organ is situated just below the larynx and is responsible for the growth of certain types of cells and the entire organism, as well as generating some hormones, including thyroxine and calcitonin.

There are several types of the disease:

  • The most common type is papillary thyroid cancer (about 75% of all cases). It typically affects a part of the thyroid gland. It is differentiated by a slow development, so is best curable. Mortality rate from this form of cancer is minimal.
  • Follicular thyroid cancer. It occurs in 15% of all patients. Its appearance is closely related to iodine deficiency. At metastasizing, it is seldom affects the lymph nodes but can penetrate into the lungs and the skeletal system. Prognosis for cure are high.
  • Medullary thyroid cancer makes up about 8% of all patients. It originates from the cells, which produce the hormone calcitonin. It can metastasize the lymph nodes, liver, kidneys and other organs. It is hard-to-treat.
  • Anaplastic thyroid cancer is a very rare. As a rule, it progresses against the background of already existing forms of cancer – papillary and medullary. It develops rapidly and aggressively, metastasizing the cervical lymph nodes and other organs, making the treatment inveterate.

Women tend to suffer from thyroid carcinoma almost three times more often than men. Age group of disease incidence is quite young – 65% of patients have not reached 55 years of age. In addition, about 2% of the patients are children and teenagers.

Methods of treatment of thyroid cancer in Israel

The foreground treatment method of tumor of thyroid cancer is its removal by surgery. Depending on the desolation of the disease, besides the tumor, the part of or the whole gland can be removed. Furthermore, the affected lymph nodes in the neck are also removed at the surgery. It should be noted that Israeli doctors practice organ-preserving approach.

After the surgery, the following treatment methods are applied:

  • Radioiodine therapy is an administration of a capsule with radioactive iodine to the organism. The method is based on the properties of cancer cells to accumulate this substance that destroys them in itself.
  • Hormone therapy is an administration of thyroxine, a hormone produced by the thyroid gland. It is carried out to replace and suppress the remaining cancer cells after surgery.

At the later stages of the disease the treatment is carried out using the following methods:

  • Radiation therapy. If tumors are small, the Gamma Knife can be used.
  • Chemotherapy is an administration of a highly toxic drugs to kill cancer cells.
  • Targeted therapy is the use of drugs to block the production of enzymes, involved in the division and growth of cancer cells.
