Liposarcoma treatment in Israeli clinics
Liposarcoma is a rather rare type of cancer when a neoplasm occurs in deep fatty layers of soft tissues. It is a large neoplasm, on the area of which there are several painful foci of smaller sizes. The insidiousness of this type of malignant tumor lies in the fact that the symptoms appear rather late - the patient begins to feel pain mainly already at the stages of the progression of the disease.
Every year thousands of patients from different countries decide to treat liposarcoma in Israeli clinics, since they are equipped with the most modern equipment and highly professional medical staff, where many world-famous doctors work. Also, a significant advantage of cancer treatment in Israel is the relatively low cost. The average price of services provided by Israeli clinics is less than in medical institutions in the USA, Canada and Europe.
How is liposarcoma diagnosed in Israeli clinics?
Another advantage of Israeli clinics, in addition to reasonable prices, high level of treatment and service, is fast and accurate diagnosis of liposarcoma, which does not take more than a few days. On the first day, the doctor examines the patient, gets acquainted with the already available examination results and prescribes additional diagnostic procedures, the cost of each of which the patient pays separately:
- palpation of neoplasia;
- biopsy and histological examination;
Based on the results of the diagnosis, a council of doctors makes an accurate diagnosis and decides on a treatment plan for liposarcoma. At this stage, the patient is introduced to the stages of the forthcoming therapy and, accordingly, the price of services is determined. The full cost can be paid immediately or in stages.
Treatment of liposarcoma in Israel and the cost of services
Israeli specialists in the treatment of liposarcoma use sparing techniques that maximize the preservation of the limbs. The latest chemotherapy drugs are also actively used. The main methods are radiological and surgical intervention.
The surgical method is the main one in the treatment of liposarcoma. It is especially effective in the early stages, when the tumor is still in a localized state, the process of growth into the surrounding healthy tissues has not begun. In this case, the liposarcoma is removed with some of the surrounding tissue to avoid recurrence.
Radiotherapy is used before or after surgery. Before the operation, it is performed in order to reduce the size of the neoplasm, which will simplify the process of surgical intervention. After surgery, your doctor may prescribe radiation therapy to rule out subsequent recurrences of liposarcoma. According to statistics, such a combination of surgery and radiotherapy can reduce the risk of cancer recurrence in about 85% of cases.
Chemotherapy is also aimed at increasing the survival rate after treatment of liposarcoma by almost two times. A special role in this is played by drugs based on natural inhibitors of mitosis.
High accuracy of operative diagnostics, effective treatment of liposarcoma and impeccable quality and services provided determine the interest of patients in treatment in Israeli clinics. Reasonable prices make it possible to afford the treatment of liposarcoma both to the indigenous people of Israel and citizens of other countries. Monitoring shows that prices for similar services in clinics in Germany and Great Britain are 35-40 percent higher than the cost of similar services in clinics in Israel.
