Patient reviews about Treatment of kidney cancer abroad

Diagnosis: kidney cancer

The urologist who made the diagnosis was sure that due to the unfortunate location of the tumor, the kidney would have to be removed. Having no acquaintances in the field of medicine and in general a time (end of the year), we began to search the Internet for information about treatment in Germany. The choice fell on a clinic in Berlin. We emailed medical records as well as CT scans. A German urologist wrote that it is possible to perform a minimally invasive partial kidney resection assisted by a Da Vinci robot. And we went to Germany. At the hospital, we were immediately explained in detail all the nuances of the planned operation, told about all possible complications. On December 14, my husband was operated on, and the kidney was saved. The chamber was beautiful, the doctor of the highest qualification, very caring. Twice a day he came and examined Igor personally. The food in the German clinic was also excellent. After 5 days, the husband was already discharged from the clinic in normal condition. Now the husband practically does not remember the operation, he feels good.

Diagnosis: kidney cancer

From the bottom of my heart I want to express my gratitude to Professor Schrader and all the staff of the Berlin-Buch Clinic for their high professionalism, efficiency, attentive attitude towards patients. He quickly determined the tactics of treatment and a week later I was scheduled for surgery. I doubted that such a complex operation as a nephrectomy could be performed laparoscopically, but the professor had golden hands. He recovered very quickly. During the week of my stay in the hospital, I never had any complaints about the staff. Everyone was very attentive, polite and friendly.

Diagnosis: Kidney tumor

Thanks to the Assuta team for a well-organized stay and surgery in Israel. I had a nephrectomy. In my memories styed only the excruciating pain and fear of the upcoming serious operation. Everything went perfectly! Literally in a few days I got back on my feet! At the same time, I rested at the Dead Sea. Now I recommend all friends, neighbors and acquaintances to contact only Assuta and not waste precious time and health visiting Russian Aesculapians! Better to go to Israel right away and not be afraid of anything!

Diagnosis: Kidney cancer

I was in this hospital for 16 days, I’m just full of praise. All staff works at the highest level. I had kidney cancer. Surgery and postoperative care (very difficult) were better than I expected. For me, the clinic deserves the best rating. I always recommend it!

Diagnosis: kidney cancer

My husband was diagnosed with a kidney tumor. However, we were lucky, as the tumor was in its early stages. My husband’s relatives live in Germany and insisted that we be treated in one of the German clinics, as they believe that there is the best medicine, and they were right. When we arrived in Germany, my husband was admitted to the Asklepios Barmbek hospital, and he was scheduled for an operation. The operation was successful, thanks to which my husband got rid of cancer. I want to note that the medical staff of the clinic are very pleasant and caring. I was pleasantly surprised that they continued to be interested in my husband’s health even after we returned home.

Diagnosis: oncology

They provide an excellent care in all areas, be it medical or service. Only competent doctors, from preliminary consultation to surgery and subsequent treatment.

Diagnosis: kidney cancer

My kidney cancer was developing rapidly. Pain, nausea, increased fatigue – all this accompanied and tormented me. I went to the hospital, local doctors suspected various diseases, but were unable to make an accurate diagnosis. I went to Israel to Ikhilov clinic. Three days were enough for Israeli specialists to announce the correct diagnosis, which turned out to be disappointing – cancer. After the diagnosis, days of treatment dragged on, during which the doctors did not leave me without attention and always supported and encouraged me. I was surprised by this attitude, as well as the incredibly comfortable conditions in which I found myself. After some time, the disease subsided, which I am immensely happy about and for which I am eternally grateful to the Israeli doctors!

Diagnosis: kidney cancer

It so happened that at the time I developed kidney cancer, I was in Israel with a friend (I came to visit for a month). It was not possible to rest, as terrible pain and general poor health forced me to see doctors. At the Ikhilov clinic, in just three days, I was given all the necessary diagnostic procedures, after which they handed down, as it seemed to me then, a “sentence” – kidney cancer. I won’t talk about my emotions at that moment… However, using the latest treatment methods and modern equipment, Israeli doctors managed to do the impossible – restore my health! Now I’m at home and I’m going to go to Israel to visit a friend, this time for sure to relax! My review of cancer treatment almost in Israel is positive, it couldn’t have been any other way!

Why kidney cancer treatment abroad is in demand by patients?

kidney cancer treatment abroadThe main reasons why patients choose kidney cancer treatment abroad:

  1. Lack of qualified specialists and modern equipment in home countries. In many cases, patients cannot be offered organ-sparing surgeries, including minimally invasive interventions. There is not always access to immunotherapy, targeted therapies and other innovative techniques that can increase the chances of cure and improve quality of life.
  2. High cost of community-based treatment. Patients often find that kidney cancer treatment in their country is very expensive, and insurance companies do not cover all costs or refuse to pay at all. In this case, treatment abroad may be a more economical option, as some countries have lower prices for medical services and better results.
  3. The desire to get a second opinion or an alternative treatment option. Sometimes patients do not trust the diagnosis or recommendations of their surgeon and want independent advice from other specialists. Treatment abroad gives such an opportunity, as the patient can apply to several clinics and compare their offers. Also, a person can learn about new treatment methods that are not yet available in his or her country or participate in clinical trials.
  4. The desire to combine treatment with a change of scenery. Kidney cancer treatment is a stressful and arduous process that requires a lot of strength and energy. Therefore, some patients want to spend this period in a more comfortable environment. For example, at the seaside or in a country with a more pleasant climate.
Which countries offer the best kidney cancer treatment abroad?

Among the countries that are in great demand among patients with kidney cancer, we can distinguish the following:

  1. kidney cancer treatment abroadIsrael. This is one of the leading countries in the field of oncology, which offers help from qualified specialists. They use modern equipment and innovative treatment methods. In Israel, patients can undergo organ-saving surgeries using the Da Vinci robot, immune and targeted therapy, radiosurgery and other treatments. 
  2. Turkey. It is the most popular country for medical tourism. It attracts patients with affordable prices, a high level of service, and quality medicine. In Turkey, patients can undergo diagnosis and treatment of kidney cancer in cooperation with the American Johns Hopkins Medical Center, which is one of the leaders in the field of oncology. 
  3. Germany. It is one of the most developed and prestigious countries for kidney cancer treatment. The highest level of medicine, science and technology is available here. In Germany, patients can undergo various types of therapy, which are selected for them by experienced oncologists. 
  4. Spain. It is a beautiful and hospitable country for medical tourism, which offers high-quality services, comfort and safety. All modern surgery and drug therapy methods are available to patients in Spain. 
  5. India. There is the most affordable country in terms of treatment costs. In India, patients can undergo diagnosis and treatment of kidney cancer in cooperation with leading clinics in the world. Kidney transplantation is also available here at a lower cost than in central and western European countries.
Examinations for international patients

kidney cancer diagnosis abroadTo accurately diagnose kidney cancer, the world’s leading clinics rely only on modern research methods. They allow to determine the presence of a tumor, its characteristics and its stage of development. It is important to know that the accuracy of diagnosis mostly depends on the combination of several methods and detailed analysis of data. 

Examples of key examinations that are prescribed abroad:

  • Ultrasound (USG). This method provides an image of internal organs using ultrasound waves. It can help detect a malignant tumor in the kidney and determine its size, shape, and structure.
  • Computed tomography (CT) scan. CT scans create detailed images of internal organs using X-rays. This method can give a clearer picture of the location of the neoplasm.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The machine uses magnetic fields and radio waves to create detailed images of organs. This method can be useful for evaluating the tissue and structure of the tumor in the kidney.
  • Ultrasound-guided puncture (US puncture). The doctor can take tissue samples under ultrasound guidance for more accurate examination.
  • Biopsy of suspicious tissue. In a biopsy, a small sample from the tumor is examined under a microscope. This helps determine the type of cancer and its sensitivity to medications.
  • Pet-computed tomography (PET-CT). This study helps to assess the metastasis of cancer. This device is also used during treatment, which allows you to monitor the patient’s condition and the progress of treatment.
  • Blood and urine tests, including tests for oncomarkers.

By combining the results of these tests, foreign doctors are able to establish a diagnosis accurately, determine the stage of the disease, and develop the best treatment plan. Global clinics use advanced techniques to maximize the accuracy of examinations.

What are the modern methods of surgery abroad for kidney cancer?

Modern techniques of surgical treatment of kidney cancer used in world clinics:

  • Robotic nephrectomy. Doctors use a surgical robot to perform precise and minimally invasive surgery.
  • Laparoscopic nephrectomy. The surgery is performed through small incisions, minimizing the risk of complications.
  • Radiofrequency and microwave ablation. Techniques that involve using radio waves and microwaves to destroy the tumor.
Surgical treatment of kidney cancer abroad

kidney cancer surgeryExamples of instruments and devices used in the surgical treatment of kidney cancer abroad:

  • Da Vinci – a system for robot-assisted surgery that provides precise movements and improved visibility during intervention;
  • Laparoscope – a specialized instrument for performing surgery through small incisions;
  • electrosurgical devices – used for coagulation and tissue resection;
  • instruments for radiofrequency and microwave ablation – generate appropriate waves to destroy the tumor.

Such instruments and devices allow kidney cancer treatment abroad with minimal impact on the body. Therefore, a crucial factor in selecting a clinic and an oncological surgeon is the ability to undergo surgery with the possibility of rapid recovery.

Nephrectomy for kidney cancer treatment abroad at different stages

The process of nephrectomy (kidney surgery) can vary depending on the stage of the cancer, the person’s condition and other medical factors. Let’s take a look at how the procedure may differ at different stages of kidney cancer. This information is based on data from reputable sources, the American Cancer Society and the European Association of Urology.


Examples of nephrectomy at different stages of kidney cancer:

  • methods of removing kidney cancerEarly stages (I and II).

Patients are indicated for radical or partial nephrectomy.

Preparation: general tests, MRI or CT scan to assess tumor size and spread.

Procedure: the kidney or part of it is removed through laparoscopic access or open surgery.

Post-operative period: usually short, regular check-ups are recommended.

  • Advanced stages (III and IV).

Patients undergo radical nephrectomy with removal of surrounding lymph nodes or tissue.

Preparation: more detailed body scans and additional tests may be done to evaluate metastases.

Procedure: usually, in open surgery, the kidney and neighboring structures are removed.

Post-operative period: long, requires regular medical checks and additional treatment (chemotherapy, immunotherapy).

In both cases, a multidisciplinary approach is key: oncologists, urologists, radiologists and other specialists are involved. Performing nephrectomy in foreign clinics offers access to advanced techniques and equipment, which can be a key factor, especially in advanced stages of kidney cancer.

Innovative therapies in the comprehensive treatment of kidney cancer abroad

For non-surgical treatment of kidney cancer, overseas oncologists use advanced therapies. These methods aim to reduce the oncoprocess and slow down tumor growth without surgical intervention.

Patients in foreign clinics have these options available to them:

  • kidney cancer therapyTargeted therapy. Treatment is aimed at blocking specific molecular targets that contribute to the growth of the malignant tumor. Targeted drugs can affect cancer cells’ growth and division processes, preventing them from spreading.
  • Immunotherapy. Activates the body’s own immune system to fight atypical cells. Immunotherapy drugs can stimulate immune cells and help them recognize and attack only cancer.
  • Angiogenesis-inhibitors. These drugs slow tumor growth by blocking the formation of new blood vessels that provide oxygen and nutrients to the neoplasm.
  • Targeted radioimmunotherapy. An innovative technique that uses radioactive substances with molecules specific to cancer cells. This allows the radioactive drug to be delivered directly inside the tumor.
  • Chemotherapy. It is more often used to control the growth and spread of cancer cells. Chemotherapy drugs can penetrate different parts of the body and have a general effect on cancerous foci.
  • Molecularly targeted therapy. Based on understanding molecular changes in cancer cells, this therapy aims to target cancer foci precisely.

Doctors at world clinics carefully analyze each patient and their individual case to select the most effective non-surgical therapy. This approach allows to achieve the best results in the treatment of kidney cancer at different stages of the disease.

Kidney cancer: treatment abroad with radiotherapy

Radiotherapy is one of the non-surgical cancer treatment methods that doctors can use to eliminate the pathology. Different types of radiotherapy machines are available to patients in the world’s clinics, each with its own purpose and benefits. Let’s take a look at some of the most advanced technologies used in reputable medical institutions, such as Charité in Germany and Sourasky in Israel.

Types of radiotherapy machines:

  • Linear gas pedal (Linac). The most common type of machine can generate high-energy X-rays to kill cancer cells.
  • Cyber Knife and Gamma Knife. It is a stereotactic radiosurgery system that can very precisely direct the beams at the tumor.
  • TomoTherapy. Combines CT scans and radiotherapy for more precise treatment planning.
Why is kidney cancer treatment abroad using radiotherapy?

renal cancer radiotherapyTreatment abroad for kidney cancer almost always includes radiotherapy. For what purpose it is used by foreign oncologists:

  • Symptom control. In advanced stages or in the case of metastatic cancer, irradiation of the neoplasm can be used to reduce pain and improve the patient’s quality of life.
  • Preparation for surgery. In some cases, it is performed to reduce the size of the tumor before surgery.
