When is surgery recommended for cancer?
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.

What is the level of medicine in Turkey?
Healthcare is the key development sector of the Turkish government. The Turkish authorities are convinced that care for the citizens' health should be an absolute priority of state policy and spend about 77 billion liras for healthcare annually.
As a result, 28,000 medical facilities provide excellent medical care in the country. About 50 centers have certificate of JCI (Joint Commission International), the international improver of healthcare quality and safety across the globe. The index of certificates obtained is the largest. To compare, Israel has 20 JCI-accredited facilities, and Germany — only 10 clinics of this type.
Why is Turkey trendy for medical tourism?
Turkey is also a well-known country globally due to high-skilled doctors that undergo internships in American and European institutions. Patients from Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, the UAE, Jordan, and Lebanon prefer treatment in Turkey to other places.
Highly developed medical centers and first-rate therapeutic services at affordable prices attract people from all over the world. Over 1 mln international patients travel to Turkey annually. So Turkey is among Top 10 countries with the most developed medical tourism sector.
Turkey is a top destination for medical tourists because of low-costs. You may save up to 50% on services compared to European countries or the USA due to the average local citizens' income and general price policy within the country.
What hotel services are provided here?
In Turkey, hotels of different price ranges and service levels are presented. The level of Turkish hotels is comparable to hotels in Tunisia, Morocco or Egypt. Most tourists choose 4 and 5 star hotels with all-inclusive meals. Such hotels have everything for a comfortable stay: varied food, a large well-groomed territory, animation for children and adults. Some hotels have their own water park, which guests can use for free. Budget travelers can afford to book an economical 3-star hotel with half board or no meals at all.
When is the best time to travel to Turkey?
The main advantage of Turkish resorts is the long beach season. On the Mediterranean coast, it starts in April and lasts until November. In the resorts of the Aegean Sea — from May to October. The most comfortable time for swimming is from mid-June to the end of October. A large influx of tourists is in July-August, when the air temperature is +38°C, and the water warms up to +27°C.
