Stomach removal is performed using Da Vinci robotic system
Diagnostic cost depends on peculiarities of disease and procedures which were provided before.
|Consultation of an oncologist||140 - 200 $|
|Biochemical blood analysis||300 - 500 $|
|Tumor Marker Blood Test||500 $|
|Consultation of a gastroenterologist|
|Consultation of a surgeon||105 - 120 $|
|Gastroscopy + biopsy|
|CT (computer tomography)||250 - 350 $|
Treatment cost depends on type of the surgery - standard or robotic-assisted gastrectomy.
Gastrectomy provided by Da Vinci robotic system is minimally invasive surgery that enables quick recovery of a patient. Absence of large postoperative scars speeds up this process. In-hospital stay of a patient lasts 7 days.
Price of a robotic-assisted surgery includes: anaesthesia, consultation of anaesthesiologist, blood tests, 7 days of in-hospital stay for a patient and accompanying person, 1 day at ICU, histologic examination, medication and expendables.
Treatment of stomach cancer at different stages
- Initial stages (1A-B) are treated with subtotal gastrectomy. A section (proximal or distal) of the stomach is removed. German doctors practice attenuated laparoscopic approach - whole process is carried out through small incisions;
- At stage 2-3A the tumour penetrates a muscle layer of the stomach and gradually “acquires” regional lymph nodes. In this case a total resection of the stomach and neighboring lymph nodes is applied;
- Stage 3B suggests metastases in external lymph nodes which increases volume of the surgery;
- Stage 4 - neighbouring organs and tissues are affected. Main treatment method is chemo and beam therapy. Surgeons can reconstruct patency of digestive tract and carry out other palliative operations.
National Institute of Oncology of Israel
Sourasky team applies state-of-the-art surgical technologies (robotic-assisted operations) for stomach cancer treatment. Minimally invasive surgeries (for early stages) reduce recovery period, patients’ in-hospital stay. Sourasky doctors also provide partial or total gastrectomy using laparoscopic or traditional (open) method.
Some cases require HIPEC (hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy) application. This method increases stage 3 stomach cancer success rate by 40%.
