Best Medical Equipment for Kidney cancer Treatment and Diagnosis

Da Vinci Robotic Surgery System

Da Vinci Robotic Surgery System

Description

The system provides a surgeon with precise tiny instruments to manage surgery with maximal safety and accuracy. A surgeon manipulates on a special console, observing the operated area on 3D images in real-time. The tiny instruments make accurate incisions excluding the “trembling hand” effect and wrong movements.

Features

Da Vinci robotic system is used as an alternative to open surgery to reduce pain, bleeding, minimize risks of infection and trauma of healthy tissues. An operation is performed through several 1cm incisions, not a big one 15 cm in size as for open surgery. Due to this, a patient recovers faster compared to traditional surgery: within 2-3 weeks instead of several months.

Result for Kidney cancer

According to the data of 46 robotic-assisted nephrectomies performed, the total duration of surgery was 255 min, which is about 1.5 times longer than for open surgery. The blood loss during robotic intervention was 268 ml, meanwhile this index for open surgery is 1.5 times higher. It was reported that hospital stay was longer after open surgery.

Da Vinci Robotic Surgery System
CyberKnife

CyberKnife

Description

CyberKnife is a robotic device to perform radiosurgery with precise radiation delivery to the organs affected with benign and malignant tumors.

Features

This method allows destroying tumors without incisions and pain; it is frequently used as an alternative to surgery when neoplasms are hard to reach or cannot be operated. The radiation is directed accurately, so it does not affect healthy tissues or organs. Treatment with CyberKnife is an outpatient procedure: just after a session (it lasts about 30-90 minutes), a patient can return home and their everyday activities.

Result for Kidney cancer

40 patients with kidney cancer were examined. The medium follow-up continued for 28.1 months. After the CyberKnife therapy, in 98% of cases, cancer had been localized for 9 months. The complete remission rate was 42.2%.

Price

from $4400

CyberKnife
NanoKnife

NanoKnife

Description

NanoKnife, or irreversible electroporation (IRE), is a method to kill cancer cells in soft tissues with electric current. A procedure is performed under general anesthesia, then 2-6 needles are placed around a tumor to conduct electric current and destroy cancer tumors.

Features

The option is considered as a new one in medicine that allows to target tumors located in hard-to-reach places. This is a surgical procedure, but no knife is used. The entire NanoKnife session lasts 45 minutes. After that, a patient stays overnight for a follow-up. No specific rehabilitation is required.

Result for Kidney cancer

According to the study with 44 participants, 73% of them were checked out from a hospital the same day after a NanoKnife procedure. 85% of patients with renal cell carcinoma experienced a 3-year survival rate.

Price

from $12000

NanoKnife
Gamma Knife

Gamma Knife

Description

Gamma Knife is a radiosurgery device to manage radiation therapy. It uses 192 radiation beams to precisely target brain tumors. Each beam goes separately through the healthy brain tissues, and then they meet together in the target delivering there a high radiation dose.

Features

The procedure is painless, performed without incisions and anesthesia. It is an alternative to traditional surgery for hard-to-reach or inoperable tumors. A GammaKnife session does not require admission; a patient can go back home and return to allowed activities just after a procedure.

Result for Kidney cancer

Within the study, 42 patients with brain metastases caused by kidney cancer received Gamma Knife treatment. In 80% of patients, neurological symptoms improved after Gamma Knife. MRI showed that brain metastases disappear at all in 9 people. The medium survival rate was more than 1 year.

Price

from $4450

Gamma Knife
Proton Therapy

Proton Therapy

Description

Proton therapy is a type of radiation therapy affecting tumors with protons, not X-rays. The X-rays damage healthy tissues on their way to a tumor that limits their usage. In the case with proton therapy, protons precisely hit a neoplasm, while healthy tissues remain unaffected that allow using stronger doses of irradiation to hit tumors located near vital organs. During a session, a patient lays on the table and a machine rotates producing proton beams to hit a tumor.

Features

This is an outpatient procedure; a person can leave a hospital just after a session is over. Usually, the whole treatment cycle takes 30 minutes to complete. It usually continues 5 times a week for several weeks. The radiation dose may change over the treatment. No specific rehab is needed. Such side effects as fatigue, headache, hair loss that can develop over time.

Result for Kidney cancer

22 patients adef 67 years on average with renal cell carcinoma were enrolled in the study. Clinicians received the following results after a medium follow-up of 37 months: 95% was a 3-year overall survival rate; no recurrence registered.

Review on kidney cancer treatment. The patient from Ukraine had the medical trip in 2019.

I would like to thank Bukimed Service and Medipol Clinic, Istanbul, Turkey. These are true professionals, thank you that Ukrainians also have the opportunity to receive decent medical care and hope for the best. For those who have chosen treatment for themselves in Istanbul, we can say that you will not regret it. High-level support, organization, doctors and equipment! And the prices are pleasantly surprised, they are 3-4 times lower than the prices in Israel and Europe (before that they were treated in and received further consultations in one of the Israeli clinics), the only thing you want to warn is that if you need a translator, then don't expect him to be around you 24/7. He is accompanying several patients at the same time, and also in Turkey a low percentage of English-speaking and Russian-speaking doctors and citizens. Many thanks to Catherine for her support and support! Thank you! Хочу подякувати сервісу Букімед та клініці Медіполь, Стамбул , Турція. Це справжні професіонали своєї справи, дякуємо, що і в українців є можливість отримати достойний медичний супровід та надію на краще. Для тих, хто обрав для себе лікування в Стамбулі, можемо сказати, що не пожалкуєте. Супровід, організація, лікарі та обладнання на високому рівні! А ціни приємно здивували, вони у 3-4 рази нижчі від цін у Ізраїлі та Європі ( перед цим лікувались в і отримували подальші консультації в одній з Ізраїльских клінік), Єдине про що хочеться попередити - це те, що якщо Вам потрібен перекладач, то не розраховуйте, що він буде з вами поряд 24/7. Він одночасно супроводжує декілька пацієнтів, і також в Турції невисокий відсоток англомовних та російськомовних лікарів та громадян. Особливо вдячні Катерині за супровід та підтримку! Дякуємо!

Review on kidney cancer treatment. The patient from had the medical trip in 2015.

When I found out my diagnosis (kidney cancer) - I was terribly scared! I thought it was a death sentence for me. Thanks to the international department of Suraski and the doctors who helped save my kidney (an operation on resection of a part of the kidney was performed). No hidden commissions and overpayments. All according to the preliminary calculation. You saved my life and my kidney! Когда я узнал свой диагноз (рак почки) – мне стало просто ужасно страшно! Я думал что это смертный приговор для меня. Спасибо международному отделу Сураски и докторам, который помогли спасти мне почку (была проведена операция по резекции части почки). Никаких скрытых комиссий и переплат .все согласно предварительной калькуляции. Вы спасли мне жизнь и почку!

The patient was treated of kidney cancer in LIV Hospital

Everything was fine, Naina helped us a lot, everything is fine on this side. The only thing was that the transfer failed us very much, the driver arrived later, because of this we were late for the airport and on our flight, we spent a lot of time, so the transfer really spoiled the impression. The doctors are very good, you can’t say anything bad, very attentive and a special thanks again to Naina. Все было хорошо, Наина нам очень помогала, с этой стороны все хорошо. Единственное, нас очень подвел трансфер, водитель приехал позже, из-за этого мы опоздали в аэропорт и на свой рейс, потратили много времени, поэтому трансфер очень подпортил впечатление.
Врачи очень хорошие, ничего плохого не скажешь, очень внимательные и отдельное спасибо еще раз Наине.

The patient was treated of kidney cancer in Asklepios Hospital Barmbek

From the bottom of my heart I want to thank Professor Gross, as well as all the staff of the Asclepios clinic in Hamburg for their high professionalism, efficiency, sensitivity and attention to patients. About a month ago left an application on the site bookimed, within an hour I was contacted by coordinator Katerina, immediately offered several clinics specializing in oncourology. The choice fell on Asclepios in Hamburg, in particular, Professor Gross. Within a week, thanks to Katerina's efforts, prof. Gross, determined the tactics of treatment and already in a week there was immediate operation. There were some doubts that the nephrectomy could be performed laparoscopically, but the golden hands of prof. Gross know their business. The postoperative period went smoothly, recovered quickly. During the week of the stay, there were no complaints about the work of the staff: attentive, sensitive and affable. Conditions are more than comfortable. The language barrier was not a problem due to the well-coordinated work of the translators Lydia Goncharenko and Vladimir Fissenko. Separately, I want to once again express my gratitude to coordinator Katerina, who was always in touch, quickly resolved all sorts of difficulties. От всей души хочу поблагодарить профессора Гросса, а также весь персонал клиники «Асклепиос» в Гамбурге за высокий профессионализм, оперативность, чуткость и внимание к пациентам.

Около месяца назад оставил заявку на сайте bookimed, в течение часа со мной связалась координатор Катерина, сразу же предложила несколько клиник, специализирующихся в онкоурологии. Выбор пал на «Асклепиос» в Гамбурге, в частности, профессора Гросса.
Уже через неделю благодаря усилиям Катерины был организован (меня принял) проф. Гросс, определил тактику лечения и уже через неделю предстояла непосредственно операция. Были некоторые сомнения, что нефрэктомию удастся выполнить лапароскопически, но золотые руки проф. Гросса знают своё дело. Послеоперационный период прошёл гладко, восстановился быстро.
В течение недели пребывания ни разу не возникло нареканий к работе персонала: внимательные, чуткие и приветливые. Условия более чем комфортные. Языковой барьер не являлся проблемой благодаря слаженной работе переводчиков Лидии Гончаренко и Владимира Фиссенко.
Отдельно хочу ещё раз выразить слова благодарности координатору Катерине, которая всегда была на связи, оперативно разрешала разного рода трудности.

FAQ about Kidney cancer Treatment

Fahad Mawlood

Medical editor

17.12.2014 · Updated 28.10.2019

Kidney cancer

Kidney cancer (kidney carcinoma) is a malignant tumor that occurs in organ cells. Male patients aged from 50 to 70 are subjects at higher risk of kidney cancer development.

Tumor affects one, much less often - both kidneys. 50% patients have renal cell cancer. In all other cases, malignant tumor develops in ureter, kidney pelvis. Kidney sarcoma is diagnosed in less than 10% patients.

Tumor cells develop in retroperitoneal space that шы poorly palpable. Early stages of the disease are asymptomatic. Tumor is often detected during scheduled ultrasound when it already has large size.

Typical symptoms of kidney cancer:

blood in urine (hematuria);

severe lumbar pain;

abdominal induration palpable during examination;

increased temperature and blood pressure;

podedema.

Kidney cancer diagnostics

Kidney ultrasound is the most available method but it does not provide an accurate diagnosis. Therefore, kidney cancer diagnostics should include a set of procedures:

  • Ultrasound of abdominal cavity and urinary system – defines changing of the shape, size of kidney and tumor location;
  • expanded blood laboratory tests (including oncomarkers) and urinalysis;
  • computed tomography (CT) with contrast – “golden standard” of kidney cancer diagnostics. It shows precise location, size of the tumor, depth of its growth into an organ and stages the diseases. CT also enables determining of metastases;
  • MRI is rarely applied for kidney carcinoma. It is used when CT is contraindicated;
  • biopsy – standard examination for cancer diagnosis. For kidney cancer biopsy is not always informative. Therefore, it is performed only upon doctor’s recommendation;
  • renal angiography, X-ray study and bone scanning – X-rays examinations aiming at determine metastases in lungs, bone tissue. It is carried out when CT with contrast is absent.

Kidney cancer stages: treatment and survival rate

Stage 1

At the early stage of kidney cancer a tumor sizes not more than 7 cm. It is located in the kidney and does not spreads into surrounding organs, tissues. Stage 1 is poorly diagnosed and has no specific symptoms.

Stage 1 kidney cancer treatment

Survival rate. Rehabilitation

  • Tumor removal with kidney preservation.
  • Radical nephrectomy – complete kidney removal. It can be performed in three ways: abdominal operation, laparoscopic or Da Vinci robotic-assisted surgery.

81 — 90 %

After the treatment patients return to normal life with some restrictions concerning their diet and physical activities.

Examination of nephrologist/urologist is required every 6 months during 2 years after the surgery, than - once per year.

Stage 2

Stage 2 kidney cancer spreads into adrenals or pararenal fat. The tumor sizes over 7 cm but is located only in renal area. There is no metastases.

Stage 2 kidney cancer treatment

Survival rate. Rehabilitation

Removal of the kidney with adherent fatty tissue, sometimes with adrenals, adjusting vessels, lymph nodes.

74 %

После лечения пациент возвращается к повседневной жизни, соблюдая диету, режим.

20 % patients have a risk of metastasizing therefore they have to undergo diagnostics each 3 - 6 months, than — every year during 5 years.

Stage 3

At stage 3 kidney cancer tumor starts to spread into lymph nodes. There is no distant metastases. Cancer can spread into renal vein or vena cava thus causing complications.

Stage 3 kidney cancer treatment

Survival rate. Rehabilitation

Removal of the kidney with adherent fatty tissue, sometimes with adrenals, adjusting vessels, lymph nodes.

40 – 65 %

Regular examination – every 3 months during 3 years after the surgery. Than – one time per year.

Stage 4

Stage 4 kidney cancer is difficult to treat. It has multiple distant metastases, tumor expands quickly and aggressively.

Stage 4 kidney cancer treatment

Survival rate. Rehabilitation

  • Radical nephrectomy + surgical metastasectomy – removal of kidney and tumors in other organs.
  • Target and/or immune therapy
  • Chemotherapy

10 % – 14%

Treatment significantly prolongs patient’s life, increases its quality. Palliative treatment is applied for pains relieve.
