Best Medical Equipment for Lung 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 Lung cancer

389 patients with non-cell lung cancer had robotic-assisted lobectomy. The surgery took 60-120 min on average. A minimal blood loss (0-100 ml) was reported in 95.8% of cases. The hospital stay was 3-7 days on average. The study of 212 patients who had robotic surgery to remove lung cancer showed 75.6 months free-disease survival for stage 1, 42.3 months for stage 2, 51.2 months for stage 3, and 10.3 months for stage 4.

Price

from $15700

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 Lung cancer

The study based on CyberKnife treatments of 35 patients during a medium follow-up of 18 months demonstrated control of a tumor in 71% of cases with 77% survival rate. Another study of 56 patients showed 86% survival rate for 1-33 months follow-up. With CyberKnife treatment, a lung cancer patient will not experience such side effects as sore throat or breath shortness.

Price

from $4400

CyberKnife
TomoTherapy

TomoTherapy

Description

Tomotherapy represents a type of intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT). The device combines a CT scanner and linear accelerator to deliver radiation to the tumor. In-built CT scan receives images of a tumor before each treatment session that allows to target tumors precisely.

Features

With TomoTherapy, a tumor is affected with radiation slice-by-slice, not the entire neoplasm at once. The duration of one session is shortened: it takes several minutes, no hospital stay is necessary after the procedure. A patient can experience tiredness and appetite changes after tomotherapy.

Result for Lung cancer

616 patients with lung cancer were examined. 2 and 5-years survival rates are 73% and 56% correspondingly. The local tumor control of different degrees was observed in 63%-100%. TomoTherapy successfully provides early-stage non-small cell lung cancer and inoperative tumors treatment avoiding damage to surrounding vital healthy organs.

Price

from $8204

TomoTherapy
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 Lung cancer

The study examined 35 patients with a medium age of 82 years. All of them received proton-beam therapy. The overall 3-year survival rate was 67.2%: 58.2% in patients with inoperable lung cancer and 90% in those with operable lung cancer.

Review on lung cancer treatment. The patient from Russian Federation had the medical trip in 2019.

Very friendly staff. Doctors are professionals in their field, they made an accurate diagnosis in a day, while in Kyrgyzstan, where my father-in-law lives, they could not put in 20 days. Thank you so much for organizing Barbara and Anna from bookimed. Очень доброжелательный персонал. Врачи профессионалы своего дела, диагноз точный поставили за сутки, тогда как в квргызстане где живет мой свекр не могли поставить за 20 дней.

Review on lung cancer treatment. The patient from Bulgaria had the medical trip in 2019.

Very fast reaction from Bookimed in communication. Initial discussion was for an appointment in AKH and subsequently we have been forwarded to the Privatklinik. The Klinik looks very well managed. We still did not proceed with the treatment and I'm not currently able to share opinion about the Clinic itself and the treatment (will come back soon, once have treatment there). I've been in the Wiener Privatklinik for a consultation. I manage to meet the exact doctors/professors for which I was looking for a contact and did a good job. The whole story was organized and managed by Bookimed with care for the patient. Angelina Ivanenko was my contact in Bookimed and even she was on vacation for the Christmas holidays she did not put on hold the communication. For us this was very important that we are not losing time.

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.

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.

The patient was treated of lung cancer in Anadolu Medical Center

We were helped with the question with which we came to the Anadolu clinic, but sometimes there were questions with the bill. At the first consultation they said one price, at the second there were additional expenses. Also, the hotel is quite expensive, the food is the same every day. For a person who has come for chemotherapy, it is difficult to eat there early, as a special diet is required, which is difficult to maintain in a hotel. Нам помогли с тем вопросом, с которыми мы приехали в клинику Anadolu, но иногда были вопросы со счетом. На первой консультации сказали одну цену, на второй появились дополнительные траты. Также в отеле все достаточно дорого, еда каждый день одинаковая. Для человека, который приехал на химиотерапию, там питаться досрочно сложно, так как требуется особая диета, которую сложно поддерживать в отеле.

  • Hospital’s reputation. Most good hospitals have a variety of certificates, including JCI (Joint Commission International) that prove the safety & high quality of healthcare services.
  • Doctors’ experience. Check doctors CVs on our website. Excellent specialists always have numerous awards and certificates which confirm their professional skills.

What are the diagnostics for lung cancer?

To be sure in your diagnosis you may undergo the following diagnostics in the hospitals listed below:

  • Imaging. X-ray images can show whether there are malignant changes in the lungs.
  • Lung biopsy. A doctor removes a small tissue from the affected area of the lung to detect the patient’s stage.
  • Sputum cytology. If a patient has a cough, a doctor can take the sputum to reveal whether it’s cancerous.

Surgery. In these lung cancer treatment centers, doctors can assign surgical interventions depending on the stage. Surgeries can be:

  • lobectomy — the removing of the lung lobe.
  • pneumonectomy — the removing of the whole lung.
  • wedge resection — such a surgery is applied to remove a small tumor in the lung.
  • segmental resection — the removing of a part of the lung but not the entire one.
  • Radiotherapy. Such a treatment can be used in combination with chemo drugs. X-rays destroy cancer cells that remained after the surgery or spread to other organs as the brain.
  • Chemotherapy. Such an option is applied to stop malignant cells growth and to destroy the rest of them after surgery.
  • Immunotherapy. Such a treatment is frequently used for some forms of non-small cell lung cancer. These are drugs that stimulate the patient’s immunity to fight cancer. Oncologists apply this therapy when other options are ineffective.
  • Targeted therapy. It is also used for non-small cell lung cancer. Such drugs are used to destroy malignant cells and prevent their division. Not every patient can be a candidate for this therapy.
