Synovial sarcoma (synovioma) is a cancer that develops in connective tissues. Most often, neoplasms form in the muscles or tendons of the extremities, especially in the area of the joints. But there are also cases when the focus is formed in the tissues of the abdomen, lungs, neck, head. The true reasons for the development of synovial sarcoma have not been established, but there is an assumption that the impact of toxic substances and radiation may become the impetus.
The initial stage of development is almost asymptomatic, therefore, synovial sarcoma is often diagnosed at the stage when metastases have already formed. Since this disease is quite aggressive, for its treatment it is necessary to contact reliable centers that introduce innovative methods of therapy.
Israeli clinics provide all conditions for the treatment of synovial sarcoma, including modern technical equipment, effective drugs and high professionalism of doctors. The cost of services, although quite high, is significantly lower than the prices in medical institutions in other foreign countries. For these reasons, thousands of patients visit Israeli clinics every year and receive high-quality treatment.
How is synovial sarcoma diagnosed in Israeli clinics?
In Israeli clinics, diagnostics is carried out in a short time using high-precision equipment and gives a 100% result. To begin with, the patient is examined by a doctor and gets acquainted with the anamnesis. Further, additional tests are assigned to determine the type of synovial sarcoma, the exact location, size, presence or absence of metastases. For this, the following studies are carried out:
- computed and magnetic resonance imaging;
- genetic analysis.
The patient undergoes all diagnostic procedures within two days, paying their cost. The prices of services can be found in a preliminary consultation with a doctor or on the website of the selected clinic. The full cost of therapy will be formed after the development of the therapy protocol.
Methods for treating synovial sarcoma in Israel
The strategy for treating synovial sarcoma depends on many factors, including stage, tumor size, presence of metastases, patient's age, etc. After the patient will pass all the studies, the doctor will gather a consultation of specialists who develop the most effective therapy plan in a particular case.
The strategy for treating synovial sarcoma involves surgical and conservative methods, including sparing operations, combined chemotherapy, etc. the intervention involves the removal of synovial sarcoma within the boundaries of healthy tissues. Radiotherapy is used to provide local control.
Synovial sarcoma (synovioma) is sensitive to chemotherapy. Quite often, chemotherapy is prescribed before surgery in order to reduce the size of the neoplasia. Also, chemotherapy using effective innovative drugs with low toxicity is prescribed after surgery in order to finally kill the remaining mutating cells in the body. Often, several drugs are prescribed at once in order to increase the effectiveness of the treatment of synovial sarcoma.
Israeli oncology is developing rapidly, taking the effectiveness of therapy to a new level and providing an adequate level of medical services to patients from different countries. The cost of therapy here is lower than, for example, in clinics in the UK, Canada, Italy - prices are lower by 30-40%, while the level of services provided remains high.
