Patients’ reviews
5/5
Diagnosis: Glioblastoma of the brain
Rating:

I took my son to treat glioblastoma of the brain in Turkey. We were admitted to the oncology department of the Anadolu hospital. On the very first day, we were consulted by Kaiykhan Engin, a professor, a radiation oncologist, known all over the world. Then they did an MRI and we consulted with oncologist Yeshim Yildirim and doctors of other specialties. After the examination, we decided to use a cyber-knife, which, without surgery, selectively kills cancer cells and does not touch healthy ones.

I liked everything in Anadolu: the professionalism of doctors, the respect with which the employees of the center treat each other, and the caring attitude towards patients. My son and I feel great gratitude to all the hospital staff for their compassion, humanity, and professionalism.

4/5
Diagnosis: Glioblastoma
Rating:

We already have a negative experience of treatment in Russia. The operation to remove glioblastoma was not only unsuccessful, it turned out that the tumor was not even affected, removing even healthy areas, and it continued to grow after surgery.

We decided to continue the treatment at the University Hospital in Frankfurt am Main. After the operation, the removed tumor tissue was examined in the laboratory and the diagnosis of glioblastoma was confirmed. Based on histology, a suitable chemotherapy protocol was selected. We had to continue the treatment in Russia, as our possibilities were limited. The most important thing is that they did the main thing for us in Germany.

When they found a tumor in my brain, we went to Israel for treatment in a week. We were met at the airport by the staff of the Assuta clinic, who provided a transfer and organized our entire stay in the hospital. In two days, I went through as many examinations as I probably have not gone through in my entire life. In Russia, all this would obviously have taken me several months. Rachel Grossman operated on me. The operation was difficult as the neoplasm was located in an inconvenient place. In fact, Dr. Grossman gave me a second life. I am very grateful to her for this.

My brother Igor was examined in Israel for a malignant brain tumor. From the very beginning, everything in Israel was organized at the highest level: we were met at the airport, taken to a hotel near the hospital, and settled in a double room, which was pre-booked for us.

The doctor who consulted my brother is a professional in his field and I got the impression that he has a wealth of experience in the treatment of brain cancer. The doctor ordered additional examinations and gave recommendations. Now we are implementing the recommendations and we really hope that they will help my brother overcome the disease.

5/5
Diagnosis: Glioblastoma
Rating:

When our son was diagnosed with glioblastoma, our life turned into an endless wandering around hospitals in the hope of finding an opportunity to save the child. Several hospitalizations in the best hospitals in Belarus did not give anything at all. In desperation, we began to look for opportunities to be treated abroad. Of course, the first thing that came to mind was Israel.

When we arrived at the hospital, we were met by the caring staff, settled in a 2-room apartment, we were fed 3 times a day. We were accompanied to all examinations and many of the staff speak Russian.

I was very touched by the attitude of Turkish doctors towards children. They will hug and kiss and talk to them. After this, my son stopped being afraid of doctors, although he used to be constantly under stress. Now he is looking forward to our next consultation.

In general, if someone has doubts about treatment in Turkey, then it is very in vain. Medicine here is at such a level that we in the post-Soviet space could not even dream of.

5/5
Diagnosis: Glioblastoma
Rating:

My health problems started with headaches. Then there were problems with my memory, and systematic migraines simply made me disabled. I went to a neurologist and passed through all the tests. But the physician was unable to diagnose.

It’s good that I had the opportunity to go to Israel for an examination. I was diagnosed with glioblastoma on the third day of my stay at Top Assuta. The operation was carried out quickly. And after it, I underwent a course of radiotherapy to finish off the cancer cells that could remain after the operation. I also decided to undergo rehabilitation in Assuta in order to exclude possible complications after brain surgery. I returned home to my wife and children as a healthy man.

5/5
Diagnosis: Glioblastoma
Rating:

I went to Israel for treatment with my husband, who was diagnosed with brain cancer. I immediately decided to treat him abroad. We have chosen the excellent clinic Top Assuta. The clinic staff took care of the entire organization of the trip and our stay in the hospital. The staff psychologist who worked with my husband was very helpful. Doctors and nurses also gave us moral support, which enabled us to get through those difficult times. We finished the treatment a couple of years ago and still remember with gratitude the hospital staff and the warm atmosphere they managed to create for sick people.

Treatment of glioblastoma of the brain

Glioblastoma is a malignant tumor that develops in the hemispheres or the brain stem from the so-called “auxiliary” glial cells that provide mechanical support for neurons and metabolism in the nervous tissue. The disease is relatively rare, characterized by a rapid course and often poor prognosis.

Glioblastoma of the brain - symptomsThere are no specific symptoms by which it would be possible to diagnose glioblastoma without additional examinations. Changes in well-being associated with the growth of a volumetric formation inside the cranium, an increase in intracranial pressure, and the involvement of nerve centers located in the brain in the pathological process come to the fore.

Most often, patients suffer from:

  • Intense headaches that are aggravated by lying down.
  • Nausea and vomiting without relief.
  • Persistent dizziness, coordination disorder.
  • Decrease in memory, intellectual abilities, increase in irritability, apathy.
  • Squint
  • Convulsions, paralysis, impaired sensitivity of the skin of the extremities, etc.
How is glioblastoma treated?

A tumor from glial cells has a number of features that make it difficult to remove: the absence of clear boundaries, rapid growth, and active germination into healthy tissues. All this requires the use of a whole range of measures in order to stop the progression of the disease and bring the patient into stable remission.

Surgical removal of the tumor

Surgery is the first mandatory step in the treatment of glioblastoma. The intervention is performed under general anesthesia. In the postoperative period, radiation therapy and other methods of non-surgical treatment are prescribed.

Radiation therapy

Glioblastoma Treatment in Israel - Radiation TherapyBrain tumors respond well to radiotherapy. Approximately with the same effect in glioblastoma, gamma- and cyberknife can be used. These are technically complex devices that provide the point directed radiation exposure to tumors located deep in the cranium. The result of such exposure is more sparing in relation to healthy tissues. In this case, the cancer node is destroyed evenly throughout its entire length.
The indication for the appointment of proton therapy is the presence of a radioresistant tumor in the patient, which does not respond to the effects of gamma and x-ray radiation. Also, this method is effective in patients who have already undergone a course of radiotherapy, have reached the maximum allowable dose of radiation, but have not received the expected effect. Proton therapy does not create a radiation load on the body, which significantly expands the range of indications for using the method.

Targeted therapy

This is a relatively new method of treatment, which is based on the use of drugs that target changes that are characteristic only for cancer cells and are absent in healthy ones. This makes targeted therapy an effective and at the same time gentle method of treating cancer. To correctly select targeted drugs, a genetic study of the tumor tissue obtained during surgery is carried out. The study takes into account about 730 genes, mutations in which can cause the transition of normal cells to tumor growth.

Immunotherapy

Treatment of glioblastoma in Israel - ImmunotherapyMethod involves the creation of a vaccine for activation the body’s own immune system to fight tumor cells. The vaccine can be additionally strengthened by the use of a specific virus that actively infects cancer cells and is absolutely indifferent to healthy ones. Such a bidirectional effect on glioblastoma increases the likelihood of a patient reaching a stable remission.
There are a lot of types of linear accelerators for any type of radiation. You can’t get radiation by itself without an accelerator. If you need to specify this particular brand (Truebeam), then you can enter. If not, then accelerators may not be mentioned at all in this paragraph.

How is glioblastoma treated in our country and abroad?

Our domestic statistics on the treatment of glioblastoma of the brain are disappointing. 95% of patients, even despite ongoing treatment, die within the first 2-3 years after diagnosis. Less than 5% of patients overcome the 5-year survival limit. All this is due to the fact that there are difficulties with a full examination in the early stages of the disease. The introduction of promising methods of treatment is several years late compared to the rest of the world.
In foreign clinics, radiation therapy is carried out using modern equipment, which makes it possible to target the tumor. An important role is played by the overall quality of medical services, including nursing a person with a brain tumor in intensive care, the use of modern highly effective drugs, and the latest treatment protocols.
