The patient was treated of retinal detachment
star star star star star

I am writing my impressions of visiting the Italian clinic of San Rafaele. Everything was organized through bookimed. I did everything for the first time and there were concerns whether I got on a dubious site?!? But to our surprise, which was very pleasant, thanks to consultants with bookimed, we were admitted to the clinic at a convenient number for us, and we called more than once about the translator and our escort in the clinic. As a result, we met with a consultant translator near the clinic without any problems. At the reception was a clear translation of all our problems on the retina. Were at the Department of Ophthalmology. The doctor examined very carefully. I attracted two more doctors for the necessary computer research during the appointment. The attitude is very attentive and not superficial. We learned a lot of new and interesting information about a sore eye .... By the way, for the money, we paid only the cost of the consultation itself in the clinic. We want to express our deep gratitude to the bookimed employees and to all for the assistance and assistance rendered! you are all just great guys !!!

The patient was treated in this clinic
star star star_border star_border star_border

We received a remote consultation at the San Rafael Clinic, for us this format was not suitable, because the second opinion is for those who either confirm the diagnosis or ask for another alternative treatment, we were told that after the consultation, continue the same, although we were treated and there was no result, as a result, after a remote consultation, we were not assigned anything, plus all communication was extended for a couple of months, because the clinic’s response rate was very low. We could not get any concrete answer, so this consultation was useless for us.

Oncology Department

Every year, 9,000 cancer patients undergo treatment at the Oncology Department. 6,000 of them have operations on brain tumors removal.

Doctors perform a tomotherapy (a modern type of radiotherapy) for tumors that can respond to this type of treatment. Tomotherapy apparatus destroys formation slice-by-slice minimizing an impact on healthy cells. It allows avoiding such side effects as nausea, severe fatigue, tachycardia.

2,000 patients undergo radiotherapy at the San Raffaele Oncology Department annually.

Why is treatment in San Raffaele effective?


Patients are treated by an interdisciplinary team of doctors. It consists of diagnosticians, medical oncologists, immunologists, surgeons, and radiotherapists. Physicians gather for a consilium to discuss the most complex cancer cases and make an effective treatment plan. As a result, a patient gets the most adequate treatment in his/her case.

Hematology Oncology Department and Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT)

Doctors of the unit specialize in the treatment of patients with blood cancer. They perform a bone marrow transplantation. It is a procedure to renew the blood cells and make them function normally. BMT is applied to treat patients with leukemia, aplastic anemia, multiple myeloma and some kinds of lymphomas.

Physicians of the department provide over 140 bone marrow transplants per year. 60% of them are allogeneic. It means bone marrow cells are taken from a matched non-relative donor. And 40% — autologous BMT, when a donor is a patient him/herself.

Neurosurgical Department

The department possesses 3 operating rooms, one of which has the Gamma Knife. This radiosurgery device treats tumors without skin excision. Since 1994, doctors have been performing more than 10,000 Gamma Knife procedures.

In October 2018, the medical team of San Raffaele performed the world's first surgery to treat spina bifida in the unborn child in the woman's womb. This disorder may lead to heavy complications as neurological diseases or even lower limb paralysis after birth. The doctors Massimo Candiani and Pietro Mortini did a unique operation in an unborn baby at 22 weeks, the surgery lasted more than 2 hours. Source: The Local

Cardiac Surgery Department

Doctors of the unit perform 1,400 heart and 2,000 vessels operations annually.

San Raffaele cardiac surgeons specialize in atrial fibrillation and heart failure treatment. In most cases, they use minimally invasive methods — procedures through small incisions or no incisions at all in case of using a catheter. This approach allows to minimize the recovery period making it easier for a patient.

Gastroenterology Department

2,000 in- and 5,000 outpatients undergo treatment at the Department of Gastroenterology every year.

Doctors of the unit specialize in laparoscopic operations to treat gastrointestinal pathologies. Laparoscopy — a procedure through 3-4 incisions up to 1-3 cm. This operation is less traumatic than the open surgery so a patient recovers faster. He/she doesn't feel much pain in the postoperative period and there are no large scars in the abdomen.

Breast Unit

1-2 days is the average duration of hospitalization after a surgery according to the department’s statistics.

Obstetrics and Gynecology Department

Obstetricians and gynecologists of the department give women follow-up care during their pregnancy and deliver a baby. They also specialize in infertility treatment in women and men. Doctors perform 2,600 in vitro fertilization (IVF) procedures annually.

The Obstetrics and Gynecology Department at San Raffaele is the top center to treat malignant and benign tumors of the female reproductive system according to the hospital data. 1,200 operations are carried out here each year.
