Sarcoma is one of the most insidious oncological diseases, which weakly manifests itself in the early stages and grows rapidly, damaging organs located near the focus. An advanced stage of bone sarcoma is characterized by progressive pain in the area above the tumor. There may be swelling of soft tissues, curvature of the limbs, and with metastasis, pain is felt in adjacent organs.
Upon detection of soft tissue sarcoma, the task of doctors is to promptly conduct an accurate diagnosis and determine a treatment protocol in order to prevent the development of complications. In this area, the leading position is occupied by Israeli medicine, where the most modern equipment is used, which gives a 100% correct result. At the same time, the prices of diagnostic and, subsequently, therapeutic procedures for bone sarcoma are much more attractive than the cost of services in medical institutions in other countries.
Methods of diagnosis and treatment of bone sarcoma in Israeli medical centers
Diagnosis in Israeli clinics takes no more than 3 days. A potential patient can pre-contact the doctor online and discuss the plan of the upcoming procedures in order to understand their complexity and cost. Upon arrival, the doctor examines the patient and examines the anamnesis, after which he prescribes additional examinations at his discretion. These include:
- CT, MRI, PET with CT (the latter is the most modern type of nuclear diagnostics);
- biopsy with histology;
- scintigraphy ;
- molecular diagnostics - allows you to choose the most accurate treatment method;
- immunohistochemical diagnostics.
Services related to the diagnosis of bone sarcoma, the patient pays separately. When the results are ready, a consultation of specialists is held. A feature of Israeli clinics is the final diagnosis and the development of a therapy protocol by several specialists at once, which eliminates the likelihood of error. After the development of a treatment plan, the full price of services is established, which in many clinics can be paid in stages.
The most effective method for eliminating bone sarcoma used by Israeli doctors is surgery, which in 90% of cases is performed with limb sparing. Additional techniques are also used after the operation. Thus, the patient can be prescribed classical chemotherapy, aimed at completely killing the possible remaining cells of the bone sarcoma. Specific drugs are also prescribed. Sometimes chemotherapy precedes surgery, for example, if it is necessary to reduce the size of a malignant neoplasm.
Benefits of treating bone sarcoma in Israeli medical institutions
Highly qualified professionals work in Israeli clinics who practice modern effective methods of treating bone sarcoma. Innovative equipment and drugs are involved. Each patient receives a personal treatment protocol based on evidence-based medicine, but taking into account the individual physiological characteristics of the patient, which gives an excellent result.
The prices of services of Israeli clinics are controlled by the state and are quite acceptable. The cost of a full course of therapy is determined at the stage of developing a therapy protocol and does not change during the course of treatment. At the same time, prices are about 40-45% lower than those offered by clinics in the UK, Germany and other European countries.
