Bladder cancer is usually defined at later stages. Early stages are usually confused with non-oncologic diseases: cystitis, urethritis or prostatitis.
The most efficient bladder cancer treatment method is surgery. There are few options of surgical intervention: surgeon may perform ileal conduit surgery or join kidney tract to intestine.
Bladder cancer diagnostics includes:
- consultation with urologist and oncologist;
- blood test, urine test, tumor markers tests;
- biopsy, slides examination;
- MRI, PET-CT, CT;
- kidney tract ultrasound.
Asklepios specialists conduct diagnostics, bladder cancer and kidney tract treatment. Urology Department tightly collaborates with Surgical, Nephrology Departments and X-ray Institute.
According to statistics, over 85% of patients with bladder cancer recover completely due to early detection of disease.
Andreas Gross MD, who’s listed as one of the best doctors according to Leading Medicine edition, heads the multidisciplinary team.
Israeli National Oncology Institute
Sourasky Medical Center is the biggest oncologic center of Israel and National Oncology Institute.
Method of bladder cancer removal is defined by council of urologists, though the final decision should be taken by a patient. After bladder cancer removal, surgeon whether joins intestine to kidney tract or creates ileal conduit using the small intestine.Surgical treatment is combined with radio- and chemotherapy.
Surgical treatment is combined with radio- and chemotherapy.
A complete examination usually lasts 3-5 days.Doctors perform fine needle aspirate biopsy under control of CT or Ultrasound. If biopsy was performed earlier, a patient has to provide slides. Sourasky specialists will examine them again.
National Medical Center Sourasky (Ichilov) – authoritative oncologic Clinic in Israel. Head of Urology Department Prof. Haim Matskin and Head of Laparoscopic Center Dr. Avi Barry treat patients with bladder cancer.
At early bladder cancer detection, the success of surgical procedure is 90%.
Affiliated with John Hopkins Medical Center (USA)
Anadolu uses treatment guidelines developed by prestigious American clinic.
At early stages surgery can be avoided. If radio- and chemotherapy aren’t efficient, bladder removal is conducted. Occasionally, surgeon may perform ileal conduit surgery.
Bladder cancer diagnostics lasts not more than 3 days.Methods of diagnostics: Ultrasound of pelvic organs, biopsy of bladder tissue, CT, MRI, PET-CT. The final diagnosis has to be based on biopsy. All other diagnostic procedures are additional.

|Consultation of an oncologist||140 - 200 $|
|CT (computer tomography)||250 - 350 $|
Anadolu is the best oncological center in Turkey. Bladder cancer is treated by urologists, oncologists, oncosurgeons and radiologists. They use treatment guidelines developed by John Hopkins Medical Center.
Treatment and diagnostics of bladder cancer are performed by Prof. Cemil Yugur and Prof. Serdar Turhal. They are members of American Society of Oncologists.
Treatment of patients with bladder cancer at Severance is conducted by Professor Kun Ho Ra and Dr. Von Sik Ham. Professor Kun Ho Ra is the first South Korean specialist who conducted a robotic surgery with Da Vinci system.
Korean specialists can use data from previous examinations. If the results of biopsy and slides are required, diagnostics has to be repeated.
Diagnostic procedures for bladder cancer include:
Hospitalization for bladder cancer depends on the type of therapy. The total duration of surgical treatment with preoperative diagnostics and postoperative rehabilitation lasts from 8 to 12 days.
Oncourologists of Severance perform cavitary, endoscopic and robotic surgeries. Operative methodology is based on medical indications and financial capabilities of a patient (robotic surgeries are the most expensive, but the least traumatic).
The best cost on bladder cancer treatment in Germany.
Bladder cancer treatment can be either surgical or non-surgical. At early stages surgical intervention can be avoided. At 3 and 4 stages surgical treatment is compulsory in combination with radio- and chemotherapy.
A complex diagnostics of bladder cancer lasts up to 3 days. The main method for determining bladder cancer is a cytological examination based on a biopsy. Additional methods - ultrasound, CT, MRI - allow to clarify the diagnosis and localization of the tumor.
Urology Department is headed by Prof. Sebastian Melchior. He is listed as one of the best doctors in Germany according to FOCUS magazine. He performs bladder cancer surgical treatment.
Thanks for you to made this meeting possible and thanks to him to made time for me.

- transfer from the airport;
- complex preoperative physical examination;
- surgery with Da Vinci robot;
- hospitalization (13 days);
- meal service;
- medicine, blood products;
- 24/7 nursing;
- final physical examination.
Diagnostics lasts 3 days. All diagnostic procedures are included in treatment final cost.
Jaroslav Tvaruzek performs surgeries on bladder. He heads Robotic Surgeries Center where he performed over 3,000 surgeries using Da Vinci robot. He is recommended as leading specialist by Intuitive Surgical, the USA (Da Vinci robotic system manufacturer).
The latest methods of bladder cancer treatment are actively used at Solingen. Among them:
- HIFU ablation;
- Robotic surgeries to remove the tumor and the entire organ;
- Laser operations;
- Combined and targeted chemotherapy;
- SBRT and SGRT (radiotherapy of the highest accuracy, not damaging surrounding tissues).
The final oncological diagnosis can be based only on results of a biopsy. The standard diagnostic package includes the following procedures:
The urological department of Solingen is included in TOP-20 clinics of Germany according to FOCUS magazine. Annually, more than a thousand of foreign patients are treated in Solingen's Urology Department. The success rate of bladder cancer treatment (if detected at early stages) achieves 85%.
Bladder cancer treatment at early stages implies surgical removal of the tumor. In the presence of metastases and germination of the tumor in the walls of the bladder, chemo- and radiotherapy are used.
Diagnostics of bladder cancer at Rambam Hospital consists of two stages.
The first stage is determining of the accurate diagnosis. The second stage is preoperative preparation.
The final diagnosis can be based only on results of a biopsy.
Rambam Hospital is the state medical institution of Israel. Rambam has international status and is an accredited hospital of Army of Israel, the United Nations Armed Forces and US Navy.
The head of the Urology Department is Professor Gilad Amiel, who treats bladder cancer. His specialization is robotic and laparoscopic surgeries.
Assuta oncologic surgeons perfectly perform endoscopic removal of the tumors
The world-class experts carry out the treatment, such as Dr. Peper Rafael MD (one of the leading radiotherapists) and Prof. Ron Gil Ilan.
The number of the diagnostic procedures required may modify considering the process stage and signs of the surrounding organs affection.
Assuta private medical centers chain is the leading by the indicators of the successful treatment of oncologic patients. The newest methods of the chemotherapeutic tumor affection are applied here. Assuta oncologic surgeons perfectly possess the skills of the endoscopic removal of the tumors, applying Da Vinci Surgical System in work.
In the urological department of HM, all types of mono- and combination therapy of bladder cancer are available. Endoscopic surgeries, chemotherapy and radiotherapy (contact and non-contact) are performed here.
Diagnostics of bladder cancer includes 2 stages. The first – determining of an accurate diagnosis (ultrasound, biopsy, MRI, PET-CT). The second is preoperative diagnostics and preparation (consultation of the operating oncourologist and anesthesiologist, laboratory tests).
On premises of HM clinic, an experimental method for treating bladder cancer was developed. It is the removal of the tumor and the preservation of the organ, even when the walls of the bladder are affected. If you need to remove the bladder, urologists of HM connect the intestines directly to the urinary tract. Such a tactic requires careful selection of medication to avoid complications.
