Osteochondroma: effective treatment in Israeli clinics
Osteochondromas are benign tumors on the bone tissues of the legs, less often they develop on the arms and spine. Among the causes of development, heredity is most often distinguished, but there are other factors as well. Osteochondroma develops very slowly, practically without causing any inconvenience. Symptoms appear when the tumor begins to actively grow, in particular, pain is manifested. There is also a risk that osteochondroma will develop into a malignant tumor. Treatment in this case should be immediate, since there is a risk of thrombosis, aneurysms, and movement restrictions.
Osteochondroma is successfully treated in clinics in Israel, applying an individual approach to each individual patient with gentle methods of therapy. The cost of treatment is determined after passing the diagnosis and making an accurate diagnosis with a plan of therapeutic procedures. It should be noted that the price of osteochondroma treatment in Israeli medical institutions is one of the most acceptable, along with the high quality of the services provided.
Methods, cost of diagnosis and treatment of osteochondroma
In Israeli clinics, the diagnosis of diseases and, in particular, osteochondroma, is set at a very high level. Modern equipment is used here, which gives an absolutely accurate result. As soon as the patient arrives at the clinic, he is examined by a doctor. The specialist studies the results of the examinations already carried out and can appoint additional studies at his discretion. Diagnosis of osteochondroma takes place within 1-2 days, after which a council of medical specialists develops a treatment plan that determines its cost.
Osteochondroma is treated with surgical methods:
- marginal bone resection - a low-traumatic method with the removal of the tumor without damaging the bone and muscle tissues;
- osteotomy is a more complex method, involving the removal of osteochondroma together with a bone fragment, after which the space is filled with medical cement or the patient's bone tissue;
- arthroplasty - it is used extremely rarely when amputation is required.
If, after undergoing treatment, osteochondroma is recurrent, there is a possibility that it may take on a malignant form. In this case, chemotherapy and radiotherapy are used: the tumor zone is irradiated with ionizing beams of linear accelerators, and in the process of chemotherapy, new generation drugs are used, which give fewer side effects.
