Thanks to the efforts of the doctors at the Memorial Clinic in Ankara, Sofia has been in complete remission for 2 years

Diagnosis: Neuroblastoma

Our son was examined in Russia for several months, but no one could say what happened to the child. Having finally lost hope, we went to the Israeli San Juan de Deu, where our son was examined and diagnosed in 2 days. Of course, it was difficult to find out that my son had neuroblastoma. Therefore, a month later we returned home after the treatment, alive and healthy, it was a real miracle.

Diagnosis: Neuroblastoma
Rating:

When neuroblastoma was found in us, it was clear that we had nothing to do in Ukrainian clinics. Immediately they began to look for options for foreign hospitals where children’s oncology is treated well. We stopped at several hospitals, of which we have already chosen Sant Joan de Deu, where the best oncology department for small children is. I want to especially note the careful attitude towards children. Both doctors and nurses know how to find an approach to them, so all procedures are carried out without fear and tears.

When my daughter Mariana was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, our Israeli relatives organized a trip for treatment. Chemotherapy was scheduled and the prognosis was not the best. But after 2 courses, there was an improvement, it became possible to take the bone marrow for autotransplantation. After 4 courses, the neuroblastoma was removed during the operation, which had shrunk to a tiny size. After two more courses, I made a bone marrow autotransplantation.

Diagnosis: Retroperitoneal neuroblastoma stage 4
Rating:

My name is Yana. I’m the mother of Valeria’s daughter, who was diagnosed with neuroblastoma at the age of 2.5. At the time of the examination, there was already stage 4: a large tumor in the retroperitoneal space was actively metastasizing, which filled the lungs, lymph nodes, and bone marrow.

For treatment, we chose the Israeli clinic Hadassah Ein Karen. They confirmed the diagnosis and started a course of chemotherapy according to the SIOPEN-NF-NBAL-1.5 protocol with quick preparation.

After 8 courses of chemotherapy, the tumor decreased by 2 times according to MRI data. The bone marrow was cleared of cancer cells. Although there were no hematopoietic cells in the punctures before the start of treatment, all of them were 100% neuroblastoma cells.

The tumor is still inoperable, so we are waiting for 2 more cycles of chemotherapy. But the most important thing for us is that my child got a chance to survive, fully recover and return to a normal life.

Diagnosis: Neuroblastoma

My daughter was diagnosed with neuroblastoma at the age of one and a half. This was terrible news for our family, especially considering that our Russian doctors were not encouraging in terms of prognosis. The foreign clinic was chosen according to information from the net. We chose TOP Assuta. Our daughter was examined and operated on there. Then there were courses of chemotherapy, which finally destroyed the tumor. We returned home with a healthy child, for which I am very grateful to the Israeli doctors.

5/5
Diagnosis: Neuroblastoma
Rating:

My son finished treatment for neuroblastoma more than a year ago. We were in the Israeli clinic Assuta. Now we are only periodically examined in order to be sure that the disease has receded. If we had stayed in Russia for treatment, then most likely my child would no longer be alive. Our doctors said that there was no hope, but in Israel there were methods of treatment that helped. It’s good that we had enough money and opportunities to organize a trip for treatment.

Diagnosis: Neuroblastoma
Rating:

My brother had neuroblastoma. Here, in the Krasnodar Territory, he underwent two courses of chemotherapy, but there was no significant improvement.

I sent a request to the Acibadem hospital and they answered that they could help. We were greeted very well in Turkey, brought from the airport to the clinic, and the attending physician spent a lot of time on us. They quickly did all the examinations.

The first was chemotherapy. After that, the tumor was removed and my brother was observed in the clinic for some time. Now my brother and I are back home. I have the best memories of the hospital and staff. We always had a guide who spoke Russian with us. The only downside is that it’s all very expensive.

What to do if a loved one has been diagnosed with neuroblastoma?

The world has learned to successfully deal with this disease. The main thing in treatment is the right choice of a doctor and the qualified application of therapies in accordance with international standards. Experts Medical specialists, based on the experience of their patients, have prepared important information that will help defeat neuroblastoma and return to normal life.

Approaches for treatment of neuroblastoma

The intensity of therapy and the level of complexity of the complex treatment program are determined by the risk group, which, according to the results of the survey, includes a small patient with a malignant neoplasm. Let’s consider the main methods that have proven effective in the fight against neuroblastoma.

Surgical removal

In the early stages of the disease, the tumor must be surgically removed. The operation may be preceded by a course of chemotherapy or radiation therapy, the purpose of which is to reduce the size of the node and reduce the likelihood of tumor recurrence, and metastasis.

Chemotherapy

Patients in the intermediate-risk group receive a standard course of chemotherapy. In high-risk children, it is reasonable to use high-dose chemotherapy with stem cell transplantation, followed by maintenance treatment with cis-retinoid acid.

Radiation therapy

It is prescribed for children from high and medium-risk groups, as well as for patients with an inoperable tumor.
Immunotherapy
The administration of monoclonal antibodies against malignant neoplasm antigens in combination with cytokines can significantly increase the likelihood of survival and recovery in high-risk patients. It is carried out as the final stage of treatment to reduce the likelihood of relapse and consolidate remission.

Where is the best place to treat neuroblastoma?

In our country, there are not so many opportunities for the full treatment of cancer patients. Insufficient technical equipment in our clinics and the lack of opportunities for the use of a number of modern methods of treatment are the reasons why parents increasingly prefer foreign medical centers.
In Turkey, where the equipment is updated every 5 years of use, the Memorial Clinic (Ankara) is worthy of attention. Here all conditions are created for the diagnosis of neuroblastoma at the early stages of its development, removal of the tumor node by the most sparing, and at the same time effective methods.
In Israelwith the general high development of medicine and the active introduction of modern methods of diagnostics and therapy, we recommend the Ichilov Clinic (Tel Aviv). This medical center employs leading specialists in the field of pediatric oncology and hematology.
In Spain, the leading position is occupied by the Sant Joan de Deu Hospital (Barcelona), whose specialists conduct a molecular study of neuroblastoma in a child and, based on the data obtained, determine whether the patient needs aggressive therapy or can be limited to relatively gentle methods. It is also one of the few centers that offer immunotherapy for patients with neuroblastoma.
Choosing a clinic and organizing a trip are complex tasks, the solution of which often takes the precious time of a small patient. Experts Medical understands this like no other. Therefore, all consultations, assistance to patients, and their accompanying relatives at any stage of the trip will cost you nothing. Do you have any questions? Contact us!
