Diagnosis: Pancreatic cancer

After visiting Live Hospital, we only have good impressions. Dr. Selemi Suzubish – above all praise, he was very polite, correct, patient, answered all our questions in detail and explained. We are also very pleased with the work of the coordinator and translators. It should be noted that the examination procedure performed by means of the cool tomograph was very difficult and hard for the child. We did not pass it in one step, the second part was carried out the next day.

What advanced methods of cancer treatment are used in Liv Hospital?

In the oncological centers of the clinics of Liv Ulus Hospital, Istinye Liv Hospital Bahceehir, Liv Hospital Vladistanbul, surgical treatment in patients with 1-2 stages of cancer is performed. The standard of surgical treatment of many types of cancer is robotic interventions using the Da Vinci system.

Radiation therapy is carried out using the latest radiotherapy technologies. For example, the Versa-HD HEXAPOD linear accelerator and the MR Linac Unity Electa innovative apparatus are used.

 

What cancer tumors are removed with the Da Vinci robot in Live Hospital?

Live Hospital: cancer tumors removed with the Da Vinci robotWith the help of the surgical robot of the latest generation DA Vinci XI, surgeons successfully perform operations for the following types of cancer:

  • lungs and mediastinum;
  • pancreas;
  • liver, gall bladder, and biliary tract;
  • kidneys, bladder;
  • uterus, cervix, ovary;
  • prostate gland;
  • colon and rectum.

The qualifications of surgeons that specialize in the same type of cancer are very high. Therefore, the success indicator of these operations is approaching the same one as in many European clinics. For example, such an indicator of operations in gynecological cancer is 93%.

Performing operations to remove the tumor through several cuts up to 1 cm minimizes the risk of complications and significantly reduces the rehabilitation period of patients. This makes it possible to quickly begin the next stage of treatment – radiosurgery or chemotherapy.

 

What are the advantages of radiation therapy for cancer in Liv Hospital Ulus?

Radiation therapy for cancer in Liv Hospital UlusIn the Liv Hospital Ulus clinic in Istanbul, radiation therapy of cancer tumors is carried out on the innovative device MR Linac Unity Electa. In this device, a linear accelerator is combined with a powerful MRI scanner of 1.5 Tesla. MRI better than CT visualizes the tumor against the background of healthy tissues. As well, there is no additional radiation load on the patient, as in an X-ray examination.

During irradiation, a tumor is performed in real-time with an interval of less than one second. This allows the computer in MR Linac to automatically monitor the displacement of the tumor during inspiration and exhalation of the patient and adjust the beam with an accuracy of 0.05 mm.

In addition, the doctor takes into account changes in the size and density of the tumor after the previous session of radiotherapy and adjusts the dose of irradiation. This irradiation technology allows to maximize the dose and preserve healthy tissues next to the tumor. Therefore, the patient is usually carried out at first only 5 sessions of radiotherapy (instead of 30, which are prescribed during treatment with other devices).

Today, this technology of irradiation is the most advanced in the world. MR Linac gives a chance to recover for patients who had not previously suited radiotherapy. For example, patients with tumors constantly moving when breathing in the lungs or upper abdomen as well as patients with neoplasms that are difficult to irradiate due to organs located next to them, especially sensitive to irradiation of the stomach, kidneys, heart, and spinal cord.

What is the difference between chemotherapy for cancer in LIV Hospital?

Chemotherapy for cancer in LIV HospitalChemotherapy, targeted therapy, and immunotherapy are carried out according to the latest international treatment protocols with proven effectiveness. Oncologists use a personalized approach when prescribing treatment. They also use a number of technologies to minimize the side effects of therapy.

In order to maintain hair while introducing chemotherapy, the DIGNICAP system is used. A silicone hat cooled with a liquid is put on the patient’s head. This causes a narrowing of blood vessels on the scalp. The amount of medicine entering the hair follicles and hair loss is reduced.

In the oncological departments, the computer innovative Digital System Assisted Artificial Intelligence in Cancer Treatment has been introduced. The artificial intelligence of this system helps accurately calculate the doses of chemotherapy, targeted and immune drugs. The attending physician and nurse have access to the system. A robotic chemotherapeutic installation and a pharmacy are also connected to it. This system allows to optimize the chemotherapy process and completely adjust it to each patient.
