Hemodectoma: modern methods of treatment in Israeli clinics
Hemodectoma is a rather insidious disease. This is a rare tumor in medical practice, which is still poorly understood. It is formed on the part of the neck, in the place where the carotid artery bifurcates, and such an arrangement greatly complicates the surgical intervention, requiring the surgeon's virtuoso skills to remove the chemodectoma.
Today, Israeli clinics, equipped with first-class equipment, demonstrate great success in the field of chemodectoma treatment. Israeli doctors have tremendous knowledge and experience in this area. For patients with diagnosed chemodectoma from the CIS countries, many clinics in Israel offer benefits and discounts, which makes the cost of treatment cheaper, which is already significantly more loyal than the prices of services in many European medical centers.
Diagnosis of a chemodectoma in Israel
The peculiarities of the location of a chemodectoma often complicate its diagnosis, since when probed, the pulsation of the artery is transmitted to the tumor. At an advanced stage, the chemodectoma begins to actively grow and grow into adjacent tissues, so timely and accurate diagnosis is a very important stage.
In Israeli clinics, in addition to examining the patient by a doctor and studying the anamnesis, additional studies are prescribed. In particular, with the use of a PET CT machine, which gives a complete picture of the neoplasm, allowing a 100% accurate diagnosis. A biopsy and histological examination of the chemodectoma can also be prescribed.
Having the results of the research, the doctor gathers a consultation of specialists to develop a protocol for the treatment of chemodectoma. At this stage, the patient is informed about the upcoming procedures and prices for services. The cost is formed based on the type of therapeutic procedures, their duration.
Methods for effective treatment of chemodectoma
The only effective method for eliminating chemodectoma is surgery of a high level of complexity. This is because the tumor has a unique structure that is resistant to chemotherapy and other non-surgical techniques. In Israeli clinics, operations of this kind are performed exclusively by the most experienced surgeons, since the proximity of a chemodectoma to the nerve endings and large blood vessels located in the neck carries great risks.
In addition to surgery, in some individual cases when it is impossible to perform operations, the method of radiation therapy of chemodectoma is used At the same time, special attention is paid to the accuracy of the irradiation site, when the dose is received exclusively by the tumor tissues.
The high level of Israeli medicine is explained by many factors. First of all, these are regular financial influences from the state budget, thanks to which there is an opportunity to conduct scientific research, equip clinics with the best equipment, and invite highly qualified specialists. The wards of the hospitals are distinguished by excellent comfortable conditions, and, in fact, the level of services provided is at an altitude. With all this, the cost of treating a chemodectoma in Israel remains at an affordable level, which is partly also influenced by price control by the state. Prices in clinics in Israel are 40-45% lower than in other countries. These and many other factors explain why thousands of patients are sent to Israeli medical centers for chemodectoma treatment every year.
