Diagnosis: Kidney cancer

I want to tell you my story of acquaintance with the hospital Ichilov (Sourasky).

In Russia, I was given a disappointing diagnosis: kidney cancer and the only method of treatment in my city is abdominal surgery with kidney removal (nephrectomy). I had no symptoms of the disease, blood and urine tests were normal, and a tumor with a diameter of 4 cm was discovered by chance on an ultrasound.

I am 44 years old and I refused to believe that I, having a leading healthy lifestyle, can have such a terrible disease. I decided to undergo a diagnosis and, if necessary, treatment in Israel. I sent inquiries to different clinics on the Internet and a few employees from various departments of international medical tourism called me. I chose the Ichilov Hospital (Sourasky) and I will explain why.

My grown-up son accompanied me on a trip. We were assigned with an employee who accompanied us everywhere, sat with us in the queue, got us into the doctor’s office for a consultation. The organization completely fell on her shoulders, I could only obey and do what they say (for that many thanks to her). Without her and without the knowledge of Hebrew, we would definitely have been lost in these labyrinths of the hospital.

Doctor Avi Beri was a very pleasant man, a man of few words, like all surgeons in my view. Unfortunately, he confirmed my diagnosis and suggested two treatment options: tumor resection with a da Vinci robot, or radical nephrectomy with a laparoscopic method. I agreed to the last, because the tumor was located in the center of the kidney, and for my peace of mind it was preferable to have a nephrectomy by laparoscopic method. The next day I went to the hospital, and at 3 o’clock in the afternoon, I was operated on successfully by the doctor Avi Beri for an hour. I recovered from the anesthesia quickly, there was a slight pain in the right side, I have something like boots on my legs there that squeezed the air, pressing lightly on my lower leg to avoid blood clots on my legs. Only 2 small scars are visible (like mosquito bites) on my body. According to the nurse’s words, the kidney was removed from a small incision on the scar left after an appendectomy performed in childhood. The next day my hemoglobin dropped sharply, dizziness stopped after blood transfusions. I was staying in the ward for 3 days, after which I was discharged in good condition. The sensations of severe pain were absent during all these days, it was painful only when they took blood from a vein for analysis, but that’s no big deal.

Impressions from the department of international tourism Ichilov (Sourasky) and from the medical staff are very positive, although no one will take bows before you for paying a lot of money for medical services. I didn’t pay extra money into anyone’s pocket. Everything is organized clearly, competently, and professionally. The very appearance of the medical complex is very impressive: multi-storey buildings made of glass with a helipad on the roof of the main building. It is impressive and surprising – how such architectural beauty was created in such a small town!

My story is not an advertisement, I am an ordinary patient who wanted to share my impressions with you, because I remember very well the moment when I eagerly read into all the reviews of patients from different clinics. I hope my story to someone very useful. Now I am at home in Russia. The operation took place a month ago, I feel good. In six months, I plan to come to Sourasky again for a control examination. Thank you all for your attention!

Diagnosis: Arthrosis

Ichilov is a huge medical center with the latest equipment, where the professionals of their craft work, who are ready to help even in the most difficult situation. In this hospital, I was replaced by four joints, but during the preparation and during these operations, the doctors found serious problems that interfered with the implementation of almost every endoprosthesis. However, every time the doctors of this hospital found a solution to the problem and all operations were performed without any complications. I am very glad that I chose this particular hospital and my doctor Professor Aaron Menachem who operated me on all four times.

Diagnosis: Squamous cell carcinoma of the tongue

I visited the hospital in March 2015 for examination and then in May 2015 for surgery to remove squamous cell carcinoma of the tongue at the Ichilov Medical Center (Sourasky) in Tel Aviv.

I have never met such attention, attitude, equipment, and conditions in Russia, anywhere!

The department of medical tourism picked up a convenient time and sequence of all procedures. In the laboratories, they masterfully performed all the manipulations during the examination. The results are recorded on a CD, the documents are translated into English. Everything was clearly explained.

The operation was carried out by a team with the magnificent ENT-surgeon Moshe Yuda headed.

Several shifts of nurses were caring of me and bringing back to life. The attitude here is different in principle: it is important for the medical staff not only to do their job, but also to cooperate with the patient – we are equal in the process of recovery by importance! And the issue is not that I paid for the operation. They treat the fellow nationals for free and completely on the same conditions! Attitude to all is the same. The staff bears and forbears. By the way, there are Russian speakers in every shift! Absolutely comfortable, calm, humanely, and very nice.

Many thanks to the Israeli medicine, the Sourasky Hospital (Ichilov), which is able to instill hope, give life, and very carefully treats patients!

Diagnosis: oncology

I am treating in Ichilov.

I heard many negative reviews from the Israelis themselves (I apologize for such a frankness), but I myself have never been “caught.” Everything that they did there with me was top-notch, very attentive staff, instant response to everything.

Maybe I just was lucky!? I don’t know. But I highly recommend it!

Diagnosis: examination, operation

I will try to objectively convey my vision regarding this hospital:

My doctor / surgeon was Mr. Avi Beri. I can judge his approach to treatment and professionalism subjectively by 5 points out of five. Any unnecessary tests and other things have not been assigned. Moreover, according to his recommendations, some procedures and analyzes were replaced during my visit by others. This became clear and necessary after the examination. The treatment plan was 95% saved from the planned one (before my first visit). This preliminary plan was presented to me on the basis of the first data.

As to the money, I spent the amount according to the planned budget. Conditions before and after surgery are quite satisfactory. The purpose of my trip was to get a quality treatment, with the result. If you want to see luxury wards, as far as I know this can be obtained, for example, in Assuta, or in the period after discharge. In no case, I don’t want to say bad about this clinic. Nurses are qualified, attentive, and responsive.

The work of the department of international tourism in all honesty leaves much to be desired. But again, I don’t talk about all the employees of this department. I would like to thank Irina (department of international tourism).

In my opinion, the problem of this department is the speed from addressing to the first visit to the doctor. I mean, when you want to be examined by a certain doctor. Of course, you can do it in the same Assuta, but it will cost other money. I was limited in budget, I could not afford it. In view of this, I would have to go to this clinic through Experts Medical on subsequent requests. This circumstance has allowed to save time, nerves, and as a result money.

I tried so that people who need help in Ichilov could read and avoid mistakes. Thanks Ichilov and the people who work there. Health to you, friends!

Diagnosis: Oncology

After detecting oncology, I immediately decided to go to Israel for treatment. Examination and diagnosis in Ichilov were conducted very quickly, in ten days, plus chemistry at the same time. Then I went to chemotherapy every three weeks. After repeated examination, I was operated on. It should be noted that I did not even feel like a cancer patient thanks to such a good approach. I recommend coming here to everyone who is sick.

Diagnosis: Surgery

The best, and this is not an exaggeration. They were approached several times, but each time the impression remained the most positive. Always polite and friendly staff, very clean, delicious food. The only minus is that they don’t wait for semolina, usually there are others on the menu.

I liked how they organized the matter with the transfer, when we did not have to stay in the hospital, they took us to the hotel comfortably. The notorious heat in Israel is easily tolerated with air conditioning. In general, they took care of the conditions. Well, the results of the treatment are certainly excellent. I recommend this clinic to everyone.

Diagnosis: orthopedics

I have never met a more humane attitude than in this clinic. Here, everything is really aimed at not only curing a person and giving him health, but also providing maximum comfort during the treatment. During the course of treatment, we settled in a hotel 100 meters from the clinic, it was convenient to get there, although the heat was unreal. We were always accompanied to all professional departments.

A couple of times the procedures were done at night, at three o’clock – we had to get up on the alarm clock, but again, we were not alone. My son had to spend two days in the hospital, and the food here was much tastier than in most Russian hospitals. There was a curtain in the ward, it could be closed and no one bothered. It is immediately clear that they understand what personal space is. Overall, I was very satisfied with the quality of service, not to mention the treatment that helped my son recover.

Diagnosis: examination and diagnosis

I was sick for three years! In Ukraine they shot me, they said I was healthy!!! but I was sick and tired!!! No one heard me, they said I was a pretender!!! Many diagnoses were made and treatments were not clear for three years, I was tortured!!! they decided to go abroad!! they chose Israel!!! what she didn’t regret for a second!!! she went and Ikhylov!! the doctors are top class!!

the girls who accompanied me probably worried about me more than I did!! doctors don’t have honor like ours do, doctors are simple and very smart, the specialists are top class!!!! in a few days they made a diagnosis, conducted all the examinations!!! huge thank you to everyone who was involved in organizing my trip, to everyone who accompanied me everywhere, and thank you for your professionalism and excellent attitude towards people!!! I advise everyone to go there!!!!

Diagnosis: leg surgery

My daughter and I have been to this clinic three times for leg surgery.
Our attending physician – orthopedist Dr. Ethan Segev – is a Doctor with a capital letter! We are very grateful to him for his work. We have full confidence in him and his professionalism and thank Smetankina Maya for her help!
Dr. Segev corrected the position of our daughter’s legs, chose the right technique and correctly installed and reinstalled the plates in the knee joints in 2 years. The operations were very successful. So successfully that, for example, less than a day after the last operation, we were already discharged home!
We also express our gratitude to the entire staff of the Dan Children’s Department for the attention and care shown to our daughter.

Diagnosis: Breast cancer

Hello. I want to share my story of illness and recovery. I am the mother of eight children, and now I am the grandmother of two grandchildren. In 2011, I was diagnosed with cancer of the right breast (grade 3 carcinoma). diagnosis. But the proposed treatment immediately shocked my husband and me, to put it mildly. On the recommendation of friends from Israel, we turned to the international department of the medical center “Top Ikhilov Clinic”. We were immediately consulted about the necessary examinations and operations.

Very friendly and responsive staff (unlike Moscow!) All our questions were answered in great detail. In five working days, I had all the necessary examinations and I received a consultation from the leading mammologist-oncologist Prof. M. Inbar. I will not describe everything in detail – I will say the main thing: my breast was saved, the tumor was reduced to 5 mm, and a lumpectomy was performed. In Israel, I received only one course of chemotherapy, the rest of the courses and radiation therapy I received in Russia, since I could not afford to leave my family. The operation was performed by an excellent surgeon-prof. Shnebaum. I want to express my immense gratitude to all the doctors and staff of this clinic! I have been living a full life for three years now.

What advanced technologies are used in Sourasky Medical Center?

Cancer treatment in Sourasky: radiotherapyAdvanced technologies in various areas of medicine are widely used in the hospital. For example, in clinical oncology, innovative therapies such as immunotherapy and molecular targeted therapy are prescribed. They allow to effectively fight cancerous tumors and achieve stable remission even in patients with stage 4 cancer.

In the field of neurosurgery, advanced diagnostic and treatment methods are used, such as stereotactic radiosurgery, transcranial magnetic stimulation, and electroencephalography. Thanks to these methods, more accurate and safer operations on the brain and spinal cord are possible.

Among the leading methods of diagnostics and therapy used in the clinic, we can distinguish:

  1. Da Vinci robotic system is used for more precise and minimally invasive surgical interventions, which in turn reduces the patient’s recovery time.
  2. Molecular diagnostics are used to detect genetic mutations and other changes in DNA.
  3. Virtual reality for the treatment of patients with phobias and other mental disorders.
  4. Novalis TrueBeam STX, produced by Varian Medical System, is the latest technology in the field of radiation therapy of malignant tumors. Its computer system provides the highest radiation accuracy – up to 1 mm (according to Varian Medical System), which significantly increases the effectiveness of treatment and minimizes the risk of damage to healthy tissues.
  5. FoundationOne CDx/Heme is a unique solid tumor cell assay that helps identify specific features of malignant cells. This allows the oncologist to predict the results of the use of targeted and immune drugs.
  6. CAR-T Cells is an innovative treatment for lymphoma and leukemia that activates the patient’s immune system to fight atypical cells.
  7. The navigation system uses 3D images of the operated organ obtained using CT or MRI. These methods help the doctor to more accurately determine the location of the instruments relative to the internal organs and tissues of the patient. The procedure allows surgeons to accurately plan and perform complex operations, reducing the risk of damage to surrounding tissues.

This is a small part of the complete list of examples of technologies used in the Israeli medical center.

Depending on the type and location of the tumor, the neurosurgeon can determine the best therapy, including various types of surgery and radiosurgery.

In the process of neurosurgical intervention, Israeli doctors use advanced technologies such as a computer navigation system and an O-Arm CT scanner. These methods provide maximum accuracy and efficiency of operations on the brain, spinal cord, and spine.

After surgery, an individual rehabilitation program is developed for patients, which includes pharmacotherapy and physiotherapy procedures. Experienced neurosurgeons and oncologists constantly monitor the patient’s condition at all stages of treatment and make adjustments if necessary.


How is a bone marrow transplantation performed?

Bone marrow transplantation in Ichilov (Sourasky)The process of bone marrow transplantation includes several stages. The first step is the selection of a donor. It is necessary to conduct a study of the compatibility of donor tissues and patient’s tissues in order to reduce the likelihood of graft-versus-host disease. The donor must meet certain requirements such as the absence of hepatitis, tuberculosis, mental disorders, and other diseases.

The medical center uses international databases to select donors. They number millions of people.

Once a suitable donor is found, the patient undergoes a conditioning process. The purpose of this process is to kill the cancer cells and make room for the transplantation of healthy stem cells, which can produce new blood-forming cells and support the patient’s immune system.

A bone marrow transplantation is often done to treat blood cancers caused by mutations in bone marrow cells. To cure, it is necessary to remove all pathological hematopoietic cells and replace them with healthy donor cells.

What types of diagnostics can be done at Sourasky Hospital?

Diagnosis at the Sourasky Clinic (Ichilov)The hospital provides a wide range of diagnostic services to its patients, including the following:

  1. Magnetic resonance imaging using a neuronavigation system that allows to accurately determine the location of a tumor or other pathology.
  2. Computed tomography uses the latest technologies for calculating the radiation dose, which can reduce the radiation burden on the patient.
  3. 3D tomography for diagnosing diseases and injuries of bones, joints, and muscles.
  4. A full digital X-ray for examining bones, joints, chest organs, abdominal cavity, and other parts of the body.
  5. Ultrasound diagnostics using 3D and 4D technologies that allow getting more accurate images of internal organs.
  6. Endoscopic examinations using the latest developments in the field of optical technologies.
  7. Genetic tests to detect hereditary pathologies.
  8. Immunological studies to determine the level of antibodies and the immune status of the patient.
  9. Biochemical tests are used to assess the functioning of organs and systems of the body.

  2. Then the stage of stimulation of superovulation is realized, which includes taking hormonal preparations for the growth of more than one follicle in the ovaries and the maturation of germ cells – oocytes. At this stage, ultrasound examinations are carried out, thanks to which the doctor understands when the optimal moment comes for egg retrieval.
  3. Obtaining germ cells (oocytes and spermatozoa). Oocytes are extracted from follicles. At the same stage, germ cells are collected from the partner, in most cases, this is done naturally (through ejaculation).
  4. Fertilization of the egg. When the female and male germ cells are obtained, the most high-quality and viable ones are selected from them, and the process of artificial insemination begins. The procedure is carried out by the In vitro method.
  5. Cultivation of embryos. After the fertilization of the egg by male gametes, the stage of growing the embryo begins. Its duration takes 5-7 days.

For this, optimal conditions are created that are close to natural ones, and special equipment (incubators) is used.

  1. Embryo transfer. As soon as the embryo reaches optimal viability (usually on day 5), it is transferred into the uterine cavity of the expectant mother. After that, the woman is prescribed hormone maintenance therapy to increase the chances of successful embryo implantation.

Depending on the clinical indicators, various types of in vitro fertilization can be used in the hospital. The most commonly performed are classical IVF, intracycle sperm injection (ISI), intracycle sperm injection (ICSI), and preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD). Rarer methods such as tubal transfer (TET) and intraovarian fertilization (IVF) are also performed.
