Diagnosis: Colon Cancer

I was diagnosed with colon cancer. But in our city, the treatment was very long, and my daughter took me to Israel. From the day we first called Sourasky, it was only 2 weeks before my operation. The operation was done by Dr. Greenberg. The next day, the nurses already lifted me out of bed, a week later I was discharged, and a week later I was at home.

Diagnosis: Colon Cancer

I am grateful to the Israeli doctors for curing my mother. At home, she was diagnosed with bowel cancer and they were going to do an open operation. Mom is already aged, and I was afraid that she would not survive such an operation. In Israel, she was operated on in a closed way – through small holes in her stomach. Now my mother is doing well.

Diagnosis: Colon Cancer

A week ago, I had surgery on my intestines in Sourasky – they cut out the tumor. The difference between our hospitals is colossal. Very attentive staff and nurses come at the push of a button. After the operation, they are not forced to lie down. On the contrary, the very next day they pick me up and ask me to walk. Now I feel fine, I’m leaving tomorrow.

Diagnosis: misdiagnosis at home

Some strange polyp was found in my intestines. They said that it is malignant and that it is necessary to remove half intestines. It’s good that before the operation I decided to check diagnosis in Israel. My analyzes were personally checked by Professor Galperin. He said that I don’t have cancer and that the operation is not required

Diagnosis: Colon Cancer

I have bowel cancer, our city is small, there is a problem with oncologists, and I wanted to discuss my treatment with a good specialist. It was scary to go to Moscow for a consultation because of the coronavirus. My husband found Dr. Stefansky in Israel. We sent her all my tests. She answered our questions via Skype in detail and corrected the treatment.

I had surgery in Sourasky with Dr. Greenberg. He removed part of my bowel because of the cancer. The operation was without cuts – through small holes. Since then, 4 years have passed, I see the oncologist regularly, the disease has not returned.

Dad is 72 years old and has been battling bowel cancer for the past 4 years. The oncologist in our dispensary said that the possibilities of treatment have been exhausted. But in Israel, we were offered a new targeted drug. We started treatment, and Dad got better.

Treatment of intestinal cancer in Israel: everything about the disease and methods of modern therapy
Diagnosis of bowel cancer

Colon cancer is an oncological disease. A tumor appears in one of the segments of the organ. Depending on the location of the tumor, it can be cancer of the small or large intestine, including the rectum. Duodenal cancer develops in the initial part of the small intestine. It is rare as an independent disease. More often, it is a secondary neoplasm. Colorectal cancer is a malignant tumor that can occur in the colon and rectum.

Why do patients choose bowel cancer treatment in Israel?

Treatment of bowel cancer in IsraelIn the ranking of the International Health Research Center (IHRC) and according to the American news agency Bloomberg, Israel occupies the top position among all countries in terms of the level of medicine (in recent years, from 1 to 5 places in the rankings). This means that Israeli clinics are recognized as one of the best medical institutions in the world.

For the treatment of cancer, Israel is one of the most popular destinations in medical tourism. Tens of thousands of patients from abroad come to the country every year. Treatment of intestinal cancer in Israel is carried out in accordance with modern protocols. There are many advantages to treat here. Israeli medicine is distinguished by:

  • reasonable prices compared to hospitals in Western Europe or the USA;
  • qualifications of doctors who undergo training for at least 14 years before moving to independent practice;
  • the presence in medical institutions of advanced equipment, which is under the technical control of manufacturing companies;
  • access to cancer drugs, which are not yet available in Asia and Eastern Europe;
  • the ability to use those options for operations and radiation therapy that do not lead to complications.

The service in the clinics meets international standards for serving international patients. You can find reviews about colorectal cancer treatment in Israel on the Experts Medical website.

What are the stages of treatment for colon cancer in Israel?

Depending on what specific type of intestinal cancer the patient is treated with, there may be approximately the following stages of treatment in an Israeli clinic:

  • Preliminary online consultation with an oncologist. This can be useful from an information point of view so that the patient understands the further algorithm of actions and the prognosis.
  • Meeting with the doctor upon arrival at the medical center. Accommodation in a ward or a hotel near the clinic.
  • Additional examinations may be needed to clarify the stage of cancer and obtain data for selecting the most effective drugs.
  • Repeated consultation. The patient receives test results and a detailed treatment plan day by day.

Treatment is made according to the methods that will be most effective for each case. The length of stay in an Israeli hospital will depend on the volume of surgical intervention and treatment methods that were previously approved by the doctors.

Some procedures can be done without the need for hospitalization. Therefore, patients will be able to combine treatment and leisure in the tourist cities of Israel.

How much does bowel cancer treatment cost?

Cost of oncology treatment: colon cancerThe final cost of oncology treatment depends not only on the type of tumor, but also on all diagnostic and treatment methods that will be applicable in a particular case.

Treatment of intestinal cancer in Israel: prices for various procedures:

  • PET-CT is from $2000;
  • tumor biopsy is about $7000;
  • Da Vinci robotic surgery is from $17,000;
  • radiation therapy is from $9000 per course.

Prices for colorectal cancer treatment in Israel may vary depending on the clinic chosen. The method of surgery also plays a role in determining the overall cost.

Innovative immunotherapy for colon cancer is one of the most expensive treatment methods.

The price of immunotherapy in Israel can exceed $60,000, but it is an effective way to achieve complete recovery even in the late stages of cancer. These are unique drugs that stimulate the patient’s immune system to recognize cancer. This improves the natural ability of the body’s systems to fight the tumor process.

Treatment of rectal cancer in Israel

Treatment of colorectal cancer in IsraelVarious types of treatment are available in Israeli clinics for patients with rectal cancer. Some methods are standard and currently used in treatment protocols while others are undergoing clinical trials.

Clinical trials of various cancer treatments, including medications, are scientific research aimed at improving existing cancer treatments.

When clinical trials show that a new treatment is better than a standard treatment, it may become a protocol treatment. Patients may take part in a clinical trial of cancer drugs. Some are only open to patients who have not yet started treatment.

According to America’s National Cancer Institute, surgery for colorectal cancer is a key treatment for the disease.

 

The following surgical options are used to treat rectal cancer in Israel:

 

Polypectomy. If cancer is found in a polyp (a small piece of raised tissue), it is removed during a colonoscopy.

At Assuta Clinic, an innovative technique of ransanal endoscopic microsurgery (TEM) with a special rectoroscope is used for this.

Resection. If the cancer has spread to the wall of the rectum, the area with the tumor and nearby tissue is removed. Sometimes tissue between the rectum and abdominal wall is also excised. Lymph nodes near the rectum are removed and checked under a microscope for signs of cancer.

Radiofrequency ablation. The procedure involves using a special probe with tiny electrodes that destroy cancer cells. Sometimes the probe is inserted directly through the skin and only local anesthesia is required. In other cases, the probe is inserted through an incision in the abdominal cavity. This is done under general anesthesia.

Cryosurgery. In this type of treatment, an instrument to freeze and destroy abnormal tissue is used. This type of treatment is also called cryotherapy.

Pelvic exenteration. If the cancer has spread to other organs near the rectum, the lower colon, rectum, and bladder are removed. In women, the cervix, vagina, ovaries, and nearby lymph nodes may be removed. In men, the prostate gland may be removed. Artificial openings (ostomies) are made to drain urine and feces into a special collection bag.

How is colorectal cancer treated in Israel?

Treatment of colorectal cancer in IsraelColorectal cancer is a cancer of the mucous membrane in the large intestine. This is a broad concept that includes cancer with possible localization in the colon, rectum, cecum, sigmoid, or colon.

In the early stages, minimally invasive surgery is used to treat colorectal cancer in Israel. These are interventions with minimal trauma to external tissues. Among these operations, Israeli oncology surgeons practice:

  • If the tumor is small and localized, the doctor can completely remove it during a colonoscopy.
  • Endoscopic resection of the mucous membrane. Larger polyps and small amounts of the lining of the colon can be removed during a colonoscopy using special instruments.
  • Polyps that cannot be removed during a colonoscopy can be removed using laparoscopic surgery. In this procedure, the surgeon performs surgery through several small incisions in the abdominal wall. The surgeon may also take samples from lymph nodes in the area where the cancer is located for further testing.

At an advanced stage (if the cancer has spread throughout the body in the colon), doctors perform other types of operations:

Partial colectomy. During this procedure, the surgeon removes the portion of the colon containing the tumor, along with a border of normal tissue on either side of the tumor. The doctor can reconnect healthy parts of the colon or rectum. This procedure can be performed using a minimally invasive approach called laparoscopy.

Colostomy. When healthy parts of the colon or rectum cannot be reconnected, an ostomy may be necessary. This procedure is performed to create an opening in the abdominal wall from part of the remaining intestine to drain stool into a bag that fits securely over the opening. Sometimes an ostomy is temporary, allowing the colon or rectum to heal after surgery. In some cases, a colostomy may be permanent.

Removal of lymph nodes. Regional lymph nodes are usually removed during colon cancer surgery and tested for cancer.

In the advanced stages of the disease, additional surgical techniques are used to treat colorectal cancer in Israel.

If the patient has advanced cancer or poor general health, an Israeli surgeon may recommend surgery to clear the colon obstruction. This will help improve your well-being. This surgery is not performed to treat colorectal cancer but to relieve symptoms such as blockage, bleeding, or pain.

In special cases where the cancer has spread to the liver or lungs, but the person is otherwise generally well, the doctor may recommend surgery or other local treatments. Chemotherapy may be used before or after this type of procedure. This approach gives a chance to get rid of colon cancer in the long term.

Which Israeli clinics are best to go to?

Colon cancer treatment clinics in Israel: RambamIn Israel, public and private medical institutions are open to foreign patients. In this country, almost all multidisciplinary clinics have modern equipment and specialized departments for surgery, oncology, and so on. Depending on what stage of the disease a person has and where exactly the tumor is located (it is colorectal or another type of cancer in the intestine), you can choose a highly specialized surgeon. For example, this could be an oncoproctologist who knows modern methods of minimally invasive surgery.

Which oncologist to choose, which surgeon is best to contact, and which clinic can provide a full range of therapy for the treatment of intestinal cancer? These are the key questions with which patients turn to Experts Medical. The company cooperates only with verified and accredited hospitals in Israel and has more than 6 years of experience in organizing trips for treatment abroad.

For treatment of intestinal cancer abroad, foreign patients most often choose medical centers in Jerusalem – Hadassah, in Haifa – Rambam, in Tel Aviv – Sourasky. These hospitals have all the conditions for receiving foreign patients. The cost of diagnostics, surgery, and therapy is lower than in European clinics with the same quality of treatment. A professor, a top specialist in oncology treatment, can accept you for treatment.
