Cancer Treatment in Israel: Clinics, Travel Arrangements, Prices

Cancer treatment in IsraelCancer treatment in Israel is recognized as one of the most effective in the world. Thus, breast cancer at an early stage is cured in 97% of cases, prostate cancer – in 92%, and bowel cancer – in 90%. These high rates are the result of the professionalism of Israeli doctors, their impeccable command of the latest methods of therapy, and the technical equipment of Israeli clinics.

The organization of treatment is highly appreciated by those who visited cancer clinics in Israel. The reviews show that patients are surrounded by care and attention, and support is provided at different stages of therapy.

The Experts Medical company has been providing services in organizing trips to clinics in Israel for cancer treatment for 5 years. Reviews of more than 2000 of our patients have rates of 4.8/5.

Thanks to innovations and professional approaches, oncologists manage to stop the development of the disease, ensure the maximum remission period, and save the patient from pain and suffering.

An important reason why many choose Israel for cancer treatment is the prices: they are lower here than in Germany, with the same quality of therapy and equipment.

Why Choose Israel

According to statistics, about 80% of patients from the CIS countries come to Israel specifically for cancer treatment. Many of them are not given a chance in their homeland, but thanks to the quality of treatment that Israeli clinics can offer, oncology is treated much more successfully here. For example, the five-year survival rate of patients with cancer in Russia is about 3-4 years, and after treatment in Israel, it is about 13-14 years.

There are several important reasons why people who need cancer treatment choose Israel. Cancer therapy is carried out here according to the latest international protocols, using innovative techniques. However, there are other factors that attract medical tourists.

  • The ability to quickly organize diagnosis and treatment. For many patients diagnosed with cancer, every day of waiting is tantamount to a sentence. If a patient needs to organize an emergency diagnosis or treatment of cancer in Israel, clinics can make a decision to admit this patient in a matter of days, and sometimes even hours. This is especially important if cancer is diagnosed in children, because the disease in babies develops rapidly. The Experts Medical company has direct contacts with the administrations of Israeli clinics and, if necessary, is ready to help the patient to go for treatment as soon as possible.
  • Israeli oncologistsMinimal risk of medical error. In the treatment of oncology, an incorrect diagnosis can lead to fatal consequences. Quite often, Israeli doctors are faced with the fact that in their homeland the patient was diagnosed incorrectly, and the treatment was prescribed incorrectly. In Israeli clinics, this situation is impossible: thanks to innovative diagnostic methods, doctors make the correct diagnosis in 99% of cases. Also, any physician is aware of how important it is not to make a medical mistake in prescribing and administering treatment. After all, if he admits it, he bears criminal responsibility.
  • Opportunity to be treated by world-class doctors. Israel is one of the four countries with the most successful medicine. Even ordinary Israeli doctors have a high level of training and practice in the world’s leading cancer centers. Also, the patient can get a consultation with specialists who are recognized as international medical luminaries and regularly top the ratings of the best doctors in the world.
  • Round-the-clock care. Arriving for treatment, the patient can be sure that there will be no problems with everyday trifles, and it will be possible to focus on the main thing – health.

Most major Israeli oncology centers that accept patients from abroad have an international JCI certificate. It guarantees the highest level of service and medical services. And if the patient has any questions during the stay in Israel, the specialists of the Experts Medical company are in constant contact and will help solve any problems.

 

Methods of cancer treatment in Israel

Cancer treatment in Israeli clinics is carried out according to individually designed programs. The type of tumor, the prevalence of the cancer process, the age, and the general state of the patient, as well as the presence of concomitant diseases, are taken into account.

Progressive methods include:

  • Chemotherapy. In Israel, they use modern locally produced chemotherapy drugs, produced in the USA and the EU. They are effective, but more gentle on the body than older-generation drugs. This was repeatedly said by those who underwent oncology treatment in Israel: reviews indicate a minimum number of side effects. Also, oncologists use new methods of chemotherapy, for example, HIPEC (hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemoperfusion). This method is effective for extensive lesions of oncopathology of the abdominal organs. Its essence lies in the introduction of a heated solution of a chemotherapy drug into the abdominal cavity. Due to the high temperature, the medicine penetrates deeper into the tissues and more effectively destroys cancerous foci. Local use of the drug leads to the fact that only 10% of the drug enters the bloodstream and spreads throughout the body, the remaining 90% work aiming in the field of pathology.
  • Targeted therapy. This is a progressive type of therapy that has proven itself in the treatment of cancer of various types and at different stages. The essence of the method is in the targeted effect on cancer cells. The drug component is able to recognize a specific membrane protein on the surface of the cancer cell, thus, the effect occurs only on abnormal cells, healthy ones are not damaged. Depending on the tasks that doctors face, targeted chemotherapy can be used (the medicine contains chemotherapy drugs), and targeted radiotherapy (the medicine contains radioactive particles). The main advantage of the method is the most gentle effect on the body due to the targeted effect on cancer cells.
  • Radiation therapy for cancer in IsraelRadiation therapy. There are different standards of technical equipment for radiotherapy centers in Israel. Every 2-3 years the equipment is updated here, and the outdated models of linear accelerators are replaced by innovative ones. Due to this, the accuracy of tumor lesions is 0.5 mm. The tissues surrounding it receive the minimum dose of radiation. Brachytherapy is also widely used, in which a radiation source is introduced directly into the tumor or located next to it. This makes it possible to irradiate the pathological zone as efficiently as possible, touching as few healthy body tissues as possible. Another innovative technique is radiosurgery, a method that allows to destroy tumors of the brain and spine in one to three sessions.
  • Less traumatic methods of tumor removal. The standard of care for cancer is the surgical removal of the tumor. However, if the size, type, and location of the tumor allow, doctors in Israel can offer an alternative – a non-surgical removal of the cancerous focus. Thus, it is possible to avoid the operation and the risks that it carries, as well as save the organ. For this, various methods are used: HIFU ablation (removal with ultrasound), RFA (removal with a laser beam), and cryoablation (removal with ultra-low temperatures). These techniques make it possible to carry out the procedure in many cases on an outpatient basis, without hospitalization of the patient. Many patients were able to avoid a full-scale operation precisely because they decided to treat cancer in Israel, the reviews speak of the high level of professionalism of doctors who carry out low-traumatic procedures.
  • Endoscopic operations have long been the standard of surgery in Israel. Full-scale surgical intervention is used only when the endoscopic option is not possible due to the location or size of the pathological focus.

Endoscopic surgery is the removal of the tumor through a small incision using special endoscopic equipment. The operation requires additional training and skills from the surgeon; in Israel, almost all oncosurgeons are proficient in this technique. This type of surgery has great advantages over open surgery: minimal blood loss and side effects, and fast recovery time.

If the tumor is located near the vital centers, the option of a robotic operation is considered. The innovative Da Vinci surgical unit allows the resection of the tumor without damaging the nearby nerve endings and blood vessels. 

Oncology Treatment in Israel: Prices

Cancer surgery in Israel

 

In Israel, the state controls pricing in the field of medicine. Therefore, the cost of cancer treatment in different clinics, regardless of the form of ownership, is not very different from each other. The difference may be due to a different level of service, as well as who will carry out the treatment. For example, a consultation with the head of a department or a professor will cost more than with an experienced and knowledgeable but ordinary doctor. The amount in the check for treatment depends on the therapy program: the number of sessions, the cost of drugs, and procedures.

A patient who has chosen an Israeli clinic for treatment receives a treatment program even before the trip. It lists the cost of each procedure. Upon arrival at the clinic, after clarifying the diagnosis, the treatment plan can be adjusted.

In general, the prices for medical services in Israel are 30-40% lower than for services of the same quality and efficiency in clinics in Germany or the USA.

If a child needs treatment, the Experts Medical service will help pay part of the costs through international charitable foundations.
