The clinic has a very good atmosphere, despite the fact that it is a hospital. Stay in this clinic can be compared with a sanatorium. The doctors are qualified, they explain everything in detail, they are treated with respect. The chamber is very comfortable, beautiful view from the window, which helps to switch a little from the disease. There is wi-fi in the ward, which is very important for foreign patients, since you can always contact your relatives without any problems. There is a TV, a fridge, a shower and a toilet in the ward. I am very pleased with the book service, namely Katerina and Daria, as they facilitated all the organizational issues. We picked up the necessary flight at the best price. I was very worried that when we arrived at the airport we would reach the clinic without knowing the language. But bookimed takes care of his patients, we were met by a transfer, brought to the clinic, held to the reception, helped to arrange all the documents. If there were any questions, Daria and Katerina are always in touch and always helped to resolve any issue. I am very pleased with the clinic that bookimed offered us. Cun underwent five operations that were successful and now, every day his son is getting better. My advice to everyone, if you are told in Ukraine that nothing can be done or just watch, do not give in and be sure to contact bookimed to get advice from experienced doctors according to your diagnosis. So, as in Ukraine there are not many devices, without which doctors refuse to perform certain operations. And naturally they do not have the necessary experience in treating certain diagnoses. I used to think how to get advice abroad if I have never been abroad in my life. It turns out everything is very simple, you just need to contact bookimed, and they organize a consultation with the doctor who is needed for you. Once again I want to express my deep gratitude to Katerina and Darya for all that they have done for my son and me !!! В клинике очень хорошая атмосфера, не смотря на то, что это больница. Пребывание в этой клинике можно сравнить с санаторием. Доктора квалифицированные, все детально объясняют, относятся с уважением. Палата очень комфортная, красивый вид с окна, который помогает немного переключиться от болезни. В палате есть wi-fi, что очень важно для иностранных пациентов, так-как без проблем всегда можно связаться с близкими. В палате есть телевизор, холодильник, душ туалет. Очень довольна сервисом bookimed, а именно Катериной и Дарьей, так-как именно они облегчили нам все организационные моменты. Подобрали необходимый рейс по самой оптимальной цене. Я очень переживала, как мы прилетев в аэропорт доберёмся до клиники, не зная языка. Но bookimed заботится о своих пациентах, нас встретил трансфер, привез в клинику, провел к рецепции, помог оформить все документы. Если возникали какие то вопросы Дарья и Катерина всегда на связи и всегда помогали решить любой вопрос. Я очень довольна клиникой, которую нам предложил bookimed. Cын перенёс пять операций, которые прошли успешно и сейчас, с каждым днем сыну становится лучше. Мой совет всем, если вам говорят в Украине, что ничего нельзя сделать или просто наблюдайтесь, не здавайтесь и обязательно обращайтесь в bookimed чтобы получить консультацию опытных врачей, именно по вашему диагнозу. Так-как в Украине нет многих аппаратов, без которых врачи отказываются делать те или иные операции. И естественно не имеют необходимого опыта в лечении определённых диагнозов. Я раньше думала, как же получить консультацию за границей если я никогда в жизни не была зарубежом. Оказывается все очень просто, нужно лишь обратиться в bookimed, и они организуют консультацию с доктором, который нужен именно вам. Ещё раз хочу выразить огромное благодарствие Катерине и Дарье за все что они для нас с сыном сделали!!!

Review on brain cyst treatment. The patient from Russian Federation had the medical trip in 2019.

I would like to thank the Vookimed international client support center and coordinator Ekaterina for selecting and organizing a consultation at the Nord Alliance clinic. The work was built clearly, efficiently, without exerting any psychological pressure. For all questions of interest to me, Ekaterina provided, at short intervals, the most tactful, detailed documents and payment for services. On one point of joint cooperation they did not mislead me, I received a detailed conclusion and in the clinic itself they also answered all that I was concerned about. On her own research she was convinced that they can be trusted. Once again, thank you so much Хочется выразить благодарность международному центру поддержки клиентов Вookimed и координатору Екатерине за подбор и организацию консультации в клинике Норд Альянс. Работа построена четко, оперативно, без оказания какого-либо психологического давления. На все интересующие меня вопросы, Екатериной предоставлены в короткие промежутки времени максимально тактичные подробные документов и оплате услуг. Ни по одному моменту совместного сотрудничества меня не ввели в заблуждение, я получила подробное заключение и в самой клинике мне ответили также на все, что волновало. На собственном опыте убедилась, что им можно доверять. Еще раз, огромное спасибоI

Good day! For a long time, our wanderings in Ukraine can not be described yet. All at the highest level! The coordinator found the best neurosurgeon! And he carried out the most complicated operation for my wife, since he had crossed the road! Dr. Bartholome Oliver is a brilliant doctor !!! You can talk about the clinic for a very long time! One thing I will say is shocked by such a good attitude towards patients! If there is an opportunity, run away from our doctors, otherwise they will start treating you !!!! Thanks again bookimed for the doctor and organizing the trip !!!! Добрый день! Долго можно описывать наши скитания в Украине пока не связались с букимед! Все на высшем уровне! Коррдинатор нашел лутшего нейрохирурга! И тот провел сложнейшую операцию моей жене так как буд-то дорогу перешел! Доктор Бартоломе Оливер гениальный врач!!!

О клинике можно рассказывать очень долго! Одно скажу я просто в шоке от такого хорошего отношения к пациэнтам! Если есть возможность бегите от наших врачей,а то они начнут вас «лечить»!!!! Еще раз спасибо букимед за врача и организацию поездки!!!!

Sheba Medical Center

My name is Makpal Turkbaeva. I am writing with Almaty, Kazakhstan. I was lucky five years ago to get into your clinic and have an operation to remove the meningioma in the left temporal parietal part of the most professional neurosurgeon doctor Z. Kohen.

First and foremost, I am very grateful to him, for the fact that he gave me the happiness of having a full healthy life that I now have. And also many thanks to all the medical personnel and the staff of the medical center of Shiba clinic (Tina, Jana, Rina) for responsible work on the patients, for support in the most difficult period of life, for professional organization in hospitalization and treatment, for creating all the conditions of the post-rehabilitation period.

Often people who have health problems come to me with questions about your clinic, and, listening to me, admire you, since my story looks like a fairy tale for them. I, having lived to 30 years old, having a one-year-old son and a pregnancy at 4 months, underwent three operations in Almaty, which followed one after the other, and led to the main cause of my disease - a malignant brain tumor that could only be eliminated from you - so decided my close people. And no matter how complicated the flight to your country was by transit through Istanbul, when I, with a high pressure, a terrible headache, just not lifting my head in the plane, lying on the seats, reached Istanbul, where the airport staff all me was fumbled with a transfer to Tel Aviv, I think that all the bandages wrapped on my body, the stitches after two operations in Almaty, can look like a girl-terrorist.

I just did not understand what was happening to me when I arrived in Israel, I was met by an ambulance car, delivered quickly to the reception point of the Shiba clinic, where, immediately, I was immediately taken for transfusion after dehydration on the flight, and only when I came to, after all the primary examinations at the reception, I was registered.

Many things surprised me in the Shiba clinic: the professional quick reception of the patient, a two-day preparation for the operation (taking tests, examination of doctors), the operation itself 11 hours after which the day came to, the obligatory doctor's request already from the third day after the operation - more to move, not to lie, frequent washing yourself, including the head, which was so strange to me, because it would have been different in my homeland after such a long operation, I probably would have stayed in the hospital for a long time, with a prohibition to swim, etc. Yes, it was amazing when I was discharged on the sixth day after the operation. And a month after the operation, flying home in Almaty, I again returned for laser therapy.

To date, I'm alive and well, all these five years, as it should be with us, was registered with a local oncologist, conscientiously visited neuropathologists and other doctors who with great interest read my extract from Shiba Hospital, where there was a qualified description of the operation performed, and every six months, conducted an MRI of the head, and in each of them, my position is excellent - there is no tumor growth time.

I once again thank your clinic and the most important person who made me happy - Dr. Coyen !!!
Меня зовут Макпал Туркбаева. Пишу с Алматы, Казахстан. Мне посчастливилось 5 лет назад попасть в Вашу клинику и сделать операцию по удалению менингиомы в левой височно-теменной части у самого профессионального нейрохирурга доктора З.Кохена.



В первую очередь, Я очень благодарна ему, за то, что он подарил то счастье обладания полноценной здоровой жизнью, которое у меня сейчас есть. А также большое спасибо всему медицинскому персоналу и сотрудникам медтуризма клиники Шиба (Тина, Яна, Рина) за ответственную работу над пациентами, за поддержку в самые нелегкий период жизненного пути, за профессиональную организацию в госпитализации и лечении, за создание всех условий послереабилитационного периода.



Часто люди, имеющие проблемы со здоровьем, обращаются ко мне с вопросами по Вашей клинике, и, послушав меня, восторгаются Вами, так как моя история выглядит для них как волшебная сказка. Я, дожив до 30 лет, имея годовалого сына и беременность в 4 месяца, прошла три операции в Алматы, которые пошли чередом друг за другом, и подвели к главной причине моего заболевания – злокачественная опухоль мозга, которую можно было устранить только у Вас - так решили мои близкие люди. И как бы не был сложен перелет в Вашу страну транзитом через Стамбул, когда, я, с высоким давлением, ужасной головной болью, просто не поднимая головы в самолете, лежа на сиденьях, долетала до Стамбула, где сотрудники аэропорта всю меня обшмыгали при пересадки в Тель-Авив, думаю, что все бинты, завернутые на моем теле, швы после двух операций в Алматы, могут выглядит как на девушке-террористке.



Я просто не понимала, что со мной происходит, когда прилетев в Израиль, меня встретила амбулаторная машина, доставила быстро до приемного пункта клиники Шиба, где, сразу же меня срочно взяли на переливание после обезвоживания в перелете, и только когда я пришла в себя, после всех первичных обследований при приеме, меня зарегистрировали.



Многое меня удивило в клинике Шиба: профессиональный быстрый прием больного, двухдневная подготовка к операции (взятие анализов, обследование врачей), сама операция 11 часов, после которой сутки приходила в себя, обязательное требование врача уже с третьих суток после операции - больше двигаться, не лежать, частое умывание себя, в том числе и головы, что мне так было странно, так как у себя на родине все это было бы по-другому, после такой длинной операции, я наверное бы долго пролежала бы в больнице, с запретом искупаться и т.п. Да, это было удивительно, когда меня выписали уже на шестой день после операции. И через месяц после операции, улетев домой в Алматы, я снова вернулась для проведения лазерной терапии.



На сегодняшний день, я жива и здорова, все эти пять лет, как положено у нас, стояла на учете у местного онколога, добросовестно посещала невропатологов и других врачей, которые с большим интересом читали мою выписку с госпиталя Шиба, где было квалифицированное описание проделанной операции, и через каждые шесть месяцев, проводила МРТ головы, и в каждой из них, положение у меня отличное – продолжительности роста опухоли нет.



Я еще раз благодарю Вашу клинику и самого главного человека, сделавшего меня счастливым – доктора Койена!!!

FAQ about Brain tumor removal

Fahad Mawlood

Medical editor

12.05.2015 · Updated 05.03.2019

Removal of a brain tumor is a surgical operation when neurosurgeons remove completely or partially an intracranial formation.

What does a tumor operation cost depend on?

A brain surgery price depends on the following factors:

  • Price policy of the country. The most expensive brain tumor treatment cost is in the USA, Canada, Australia, the Western European countries. You can get 2-3 times cheaper tumor surgery without quality loss in the Eastern European countries, Turkey, Korea, Thailand. Indian clinics offer the most affordable brain tumor operation cost. In all cases, the procedure is performed according to strict international treatment protocols.
  • Clinic’s brand. If the hospital is famous worldwide, accredited and awarded by numerous medical institutions, the brain tumor surgery cost in such facilities may be higher.
  • Doctor’s expertise. Neurosurgeons who have decades of experience, participate in clinical research, develop new surgical techniques, have positive reviews, often ask for a higher fee.
  • Severity of intervention. If a tumor is easy to reach, the price for surgery is lower, while complex intervention will cost more expensive.
  • Travel charges. Calculate the charges for the plane tickets before going to get brain tumor surgery abroad. It can significantly affect the price.

What does a brain tumor removal surgery cost include?

The medical facilities worldwide can offer a more or less extended package of brain tumor surgery cost. In most of the cases, the price includes:

  • the brain tumor removal itself
  • anesthesia
  • stay in an intensive care unit (ICU)
  • admission in a hospital ward for 4-5 days.

Specify what the brain tumor operation cost includes in the chosen hospital by submitting a request on Bookimed.

How much does the cheapest brain tumor surgery cost?

The cheapest brain surgery price is starting from $6,900. This cost is available in Indian medical facilities. This is 2 times cheaper than in South Korea or Thailand, and 3-5 times cheaper than in the European country. Such a cost is explained by general price policy within the state and income of local citizens.

What is the average cost of brain tumor surgery?

The average price for brain tumor removal is $19,400. The cost was calculated according to data provided by clinics Bookimed cooperates with.

How to choose the hospital for brain tumor removal?

While choosing the hospital for brain tumor surgery, take into account:

  • Neurosurgeon’s qualification. Experienced doctors undergo practice in the world leading medical centers, they have certificates and positive patients’ reviews. Note that high professionalism of a doctor affects the brain tumor surgery cost.
  • Availability of neuronavigation system. It helps a doctor to control all the movements to decrease the possibility of damaging healthy brain tissues during the surgery.
  • Narrow neurosurgical specialization of a clinic/department. Pay attention whether a chosen hospital has a specialized neurosurgery department or clinic. Such units are equipped with the state-of the-art equipment (robotic and endoscopic devices), and the doctors working there have a vast experience in surgeries performing.
  • Success rate of the brain tumor removal. The leading clinics provide high recovery rate and long life expectancy after the surgery.

When brain tumor surgery is indicated?

The operation to remove a brain tumor is carried out if the neoplasm:

  • grows rapidly
  • puts pressure on adjacent tissues and causes neurologic symptoms (worsening of hearing or vision, memory impairment, imbalance and coordination disorders)
  • is located in the brain area easily accessible for surgical intervention
  • has clear boundaries with surrounding tissues.
  • The contraindications for the operation:
    • a tumor is located in the brain areas responsible for vital functions of the body
    • a tumor is hard-to-reach
    • multiple neoplasms (more than 3).

    Only a specialist can determine the final decision about the possibility of surgery and the brain tumor removal cost.

    What are the types of brain tumor removal surgeries?

    Craniotomy for brain tumor removal

    Craniotomy (trepanation of the skull) is a traditional option for brain tumor removal. A neurosurgeon removes the upper part of the skull. It provides a good visibility during the surgery and allows removing a tumor completely.

    The procedure is conducted under general anesthesia and control of neuronavigation system.

    In some cases, the surgery is performed when a patient is conscious. In such a way, a doctor can control the functioning of the patient’s brain during the operation. While a neurosurgeon operates, another doctor or nurse asks a patient questions to check memory, hearing, vision. This technique is called craniotomy in consciousness or awake craniotomy.

    The advantages of craniotomy:

    • removal of tumors of any size
    • higher accuracy of the operation due to neuronavigation.

    The disadvantages of the method:

    • risk of postoperative complications
    • risk of damaging healthy brain tissue
    • long rehabilitation period.

    Endoscopic brain tumor removal

    This is technique for brain surgery when a neurosurgeon removes a tumor through a hole in the skull bone (about 3 cm in diameter). A doctor inserts surgical instruments and a special camera through this opening. It allows completely seeing the formation and surrounding tissues.

    The operation is performed under general anesthesia.

    The advantages of the method:

    • low injury rate
    • rapid recovery after surgery.

    The endoscopic brain tumor removal is not indicated when a tumor is large.

    Tumors of the pituitary are removed through the nasal sinuses.

    To find out how much brain tumor surgery costs in your case, submit a request on Bookimed.

    Microsurgical removal of a brain tumor

    This is the removal of a tumor under the control of neuronavigation.

    Neuronavigation is a special system that allows controlling process of operation on the brain. The operation consists of 2 steps.

    Step 1: Planning

    A patient must undergo magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computed tomography (CT) of the brain. A doctor loads examination results into a computer navigation station. The system helps choosing the best access type to remove the tumor.

    Step 2: Operation

    The data loaded into the station and the neurosurgeon's instruments are connected to the patient's brain. A doctor uses special infrared cameras and reflecting frames to make the connection. Neuronavigation detects each movement of a doctor with an error margin of 1 mm. In this case, mistakes are minimal or absent.

    The technique is used for craniotomy and endoscopic tumor removal.

    The advantages of the operation:

    • low injury rate
    • low risk of postoperative complications.

    The disadvantage of the method: it is not used for tumors located in hard-to-reach places.

    Removal of a tumor under the control of neuromonitoring

    Neuromonitoring is a system for evaluating basic brain functions. It analyzes such conditions during the surgery:

      intracranial pressure

      blood flow

      metabolism

      function of the brain.

    During the operation, neuromonitoring controls the brain activity in dynamics. A neurosurgeon receives information about organism vitals in a real time. It helps to prevent damage of healthy brain tissues.

    Neuromonitoring is used for craniotomy and endoscopic removal of the brain tumor.

    The advantages of the operation:

    • low injury rate
    • low risk of postoperative complications.

    The disadvantage of the method: it is not used for tumors that are located in hard-to-reach places.

    If the tumor cannot be removed surgically, a doctor may prescribe radiotherapy. Such techniques as CyberKnife, GammaKnife, Novalis linear accelerator are available in the leading clinics.

    The brain tumor surgery cost is determined individually taking into account an operation type, tumor location, patient’s health condition.

    How does preparation for the brain tumor removal go?

    Such tests are conducted before a brain tumor removal:

    • MRI of the brain (with or without contrast) to detect location of the tumor and its size
    • electroencephalography to estimate brain disorders caused by the tumor
    • complete blood analysis
    • hepatitis and HIV tests
    • ultrasound
    • ECG
    • X-ray.

    How does a recovery after the brain tumor operation go?

    A patient stays in the intensive care unit for up to 3 days after the operation.

    The duration of hospital stay is:

    • 14-20 days after craniotomy
    • up to 10 days after endoscopic operation.

    If the tumor influences any organism functions, a patient needs to undergo neurologic rehabilitation. Its duration depends on the health condition. The price for rehab is not included in the brain tumor surgery cost.

    After the brain tumor removal it is necessary to regularly undergo medical examination and MRI. It allows estimating the effectiveness of treatment and preventing possible relapse in time.
