Questions and answers

When is surgery recommended for cancer?

Raj Nagarkar

Nashik , India
HCG Manavata Cancer Centre

Surgery is often thought to be the gold standard treatment for cancer. It is the best treatment modality for solid tumors to remove them totally with adequate safe margins (R0 Resection in surgical terms). However, surgery may not be the first choice in cancers that have progressed locally or advanced cancers in which cancerous cells have spread to other parts of the body. Chemotherapy may be used in such cancers to downgrade the disease so that surgery can be planned as a second-stage treatment. In short, patients with early and localized diseases are the ideal candidates for upfront surgery with or without postoperative radiation or chemotherapy. We must remember that cancer treatment is getting rid of the disease surgically and restoring that area's proper form, function, and esthetics. Hence, reconstructive surgery also plays a significant role in cancer management.

Do your patients ever fully recover from cancer?

Full recovery from cancer is a debatable topic. When one is affected by cancer, there is always a chance of the disease coming back sooner or later. We have treated over 90,000 cancer patients for 14 years in Nashik, Maharashtra. Many patients lived disease-free during their entire follow-up period. Some had recurrences after the prompt and adequate treatment. A few with very advanced disease and late presentation, unfortunately, succumbed to the disease. Curing cancer is our ultimate goal, but we also believe in "adding life to the years." Regardless of the number of years a patient might live, there should be no compromise in their life quality.

What is the success rate of robotic surgeries in India?

Our team has performed 410 robotic surgeries in 16 months with a greater than 99% success rate. We have performed robotic surgeries for both malignant and non-malignant diseases, including bariatric surgery. These surgeries come with an increased success rate and minimal morbidity; hence they are highly preferred by the patients.

What makes India so strong in cancer treatment?

The Indian Council of Medical Research projected a total of 1.39 million new cancer patients in 2021, making cancer one of the most common ailments for the Indians. The main problem in cancer treatment is the exuberant expense, especially in developed countries. India provides all the latest treatments (surgical and non-surgical) at a much lower cost than most countries. Treatment quality is not compromised and is as effective as in other countries. Most Indian doctors are dedicated to their work and patients and are experienced, highly trained, and surgically skilled.

The patient was treated of sigmoid adenocarcinoma in Bremen-Mitte Clinic

I have not been to the clinic. There was a dialogue on ZUM. The second opinion presented basically coincided with the Russian one. It was helpful. Various technologies and their applicability were considered. The German specialist's consultation was complete. Я не был в клинике. Был диалог по ЗУМ. Представленное второе мнение в основном совпадало с российским. Это было полезно. Были рассмотрены различные технологии и их применимость. Консультация немецкого специалиста была полноценной.

The patient was treated of ovarian cancer in Helios Berlin Buch

The clinic is stuffed to the fullest and overall very good. From minuses - every day nurses change, it is necessary to explain each time anew why the translator is necessary. Bookimed worked for five with a plus, we are grateful for the support and help in a difficult situation - we recommend. Клиника нафарширована по полной и в целом очень хорошая. Из минусов - каждый день меняются мед.сестры, нужно объяснять каждый раз заново для чего нужен переводчик.
Bookimed сработали на пять с плюсом, благодарны за поддержку и помощь в непростой ситуации - рекомендуем.

The patient was treated of lung cancer in Medical Center in Solingen

Not good. The people that I had appointments with did not show up. I met with others who seemed to doubt my records and then claimed that my medical imaging showed no problems whatsoever. I returned home and now seem to have pneumonia in the top of my lungs around the vertebra that are known to have lesions (T1,T2,T3). I consider your service to be a fraud.


Fr. Schafir Representative of Bethanien Clinic Nov 20, 2019

Уважаемый Грант, я- соотрудник международного отдела (Мария) и координировала Вас. Благодарю Вас за отзыв, и искренне сожалею, что мы не смогли решить Вашу проблему. Я хотела бы ниже привести факты и разьяснить Ваши вопросы: Вы обратились в нашу клинику с проблемой, которая была описана лично Вами на обычном листе бумаги. История Вашей болезни с Вашей стороны не была прикреплена никакими врачебными заключениями. Нашим упущением было то, что мы не потребовали ОРИГИНАЛЫ Ваших заключений заранее. В будушем мы будем более внимательно проверять документы при обработке запроса. Вам была назначена первичная консультация в отделении ЛОР. Зав. отделения проф. Зестерхенна в день консультации действительно не было в клинике. В таких случаях прием пациентов ведет заместитель профессора, врач высшей категории, Др. Циллис. Пациентов со сложными заболеваниями консультируют и обследуют только врачи высшей категории. Ваша консультация и обследование длились больше часа и было задействовано 2 врача. После того, как Вы рассказали свою историю болезни, у врача появились некоторые вопросы. Прошу отметить, что ни один из Вами озвученных диагнозов не был подтверждён ни одним врачебным заключением. Это вызвало у врачей некое недоумение и сомнение. Также клинический осмотр и просмотр дисков не выявили никакой патологии. Врачи убедительно просили предоставить хоть какие-то врачебные выписки, справки ( например оригинал гистологии, Вы предоставили только текст гистологии, без наименования клиники, врача, а также имя пациента ). Так как Вы не смогли предоставить запрошенные документы, то и врачи не смогли назначить лечение. Альтернативно врачи предложили начать обследование с начала, но Вы отказались. Ниже прикрепляю также ответ др. Цилиса на Вашу проблему. "Dear Mr Wiant! I respect your decision, although I cannot agree with the reasons for it mentioned by you. You must agree that finding a diagnosis means a complete examination in first place (also an ultrasound of the neck), rather than focusing on old results and findings whose source I can`t assess. The information provided by you was so extensive, that the time we spent on monday together to sort out the relevant protocols was not enough. Furthermore I can`t see a leck of respect; Dr. Schüller and I invested a lot of time and effort in trying to explain to you where the problems are and how to come over them. Concerning the refund I will inform Prof. Sesterhenn of your claim. I wish you good luck with your further treatment." Dr. med. Alf Cillis Leitender Oberarzt der Klinik für Hals-Nasen-Ohrenheilkunde, Kopf- & Halschirurgie, Plastische Gesichtschirurgie Städtisches Klinikum Solingen gemeinnützige GmbH Akademisches Lehrkrankenhaus der Universität zu Köln Gotenstraße 1 42653 Solingen

Fr. Schafir Representative of Bethanien Clinic Nov 21, 2019

Dear Grant, I am an employe of the international department (Maria) and coordinated you. Thank you for your Feedback. I sincerely regret that we could not solve your problem. I would like to give the facts below and explain your questions: You have contacted our clinic with a problem that you personally described on a plain sheet of paper. Your medical history was not attached by you without any medical reports. Our omission was that we did not require the ORIGINALS medical reports of your conclusions in advance. In the future, we will more carefully check the documents when processing the request. You have been assigned an initial consultation in the ENT department. Head Branch prof. Sesterhenn was really not at the clinic on the day of the consultation. In such cases, patients are admitted by a deputy professor, doctor of the highest category, Dr. Cillis. Patients with complex diseases are consulted and examined only by doctors of the highest category. Your consultation and examination lasted more than 1 hour and 2 doctors were involved. After you told your medical history, the doctor had some questions. Please note that not one of the diagnoses voiced by you has been confirmed by any official medical reports. This caused some bewilderment and doubt among the doctors. Also, clinical examination and viewing of CT and MRI scans did not reveal any pathology. Doctors convincingly asked to provide at least some medical extracts, certificates (for example, the original histology, you provided only the text of the histology, without the name of the clinic, doctor, and also the name of the patient). Since the doctors could not prescribe treatment. Alternatively, doctors suggested starting the examination from the beginning, but you refused. Below I also attach the answer of Dr. Cilis to your problem. "Dear Mr Wiant! I respect your decision, although I cannot agree with the reasons for it mentioned by you. You must agree that finding a diagnosis means a complete examination in first place (also an ultrasound of the neck), rather than focusing on old results and findings whose source I can`t assess. The information provided by you was so extensive, that the time we spent on monday together to sort out the relevant protocols was not enough. Furthermore I can`t see a leck of respect; Dr. Schüller and I invested a lot of time and effort in trying to explain to you where the problems are and how to come over them.

The patient was treated of prostate cancer in Helios Krefeld Clinic

The visit to Helios Hospital Krefeld was an utter disaster. I had tests that in Spain would cost around €300 and the overall cost was around €2700. The German hospital charging system for private patients was completely opaque. Bookimed fed us the wrong information throughout the process together with a company that we had never heard of called DMU. Thus we spent a fortnight of useless costs in Germany having be told that my treatment would be around 10 to 14 days. The stress of this together with Prostate Cancer has been immense and we must now return to Spain financially poorer and with very little extra information.

The patient was treated of breast cancer in Helios Berlin Buch

I liked the clinic itself. The department has a very bad attitude towards Russians. The examination before the operation is very minimal, I would like to be more careful, considering that there is an oncological disease. At the same time Elena, who works in the international department, did everything possible. Many thanks to coordinator Alyona Soyak! Сама клиника мне понравилось. В отделении очень плохое отношение к русским.Обследование перед операцией очень минимальное,хотелось бы более тщательное,учитывая,что онкологическое заболевание.При этом Елена,которая работает в международном отделе делала всё возможное.Большое спасибо координатору Алёне Сояк!
