Despite the fact that more and more cases of cancer are being diagnosed in the world, this diagnosis no longer sounds like a sentence. Due to the rapid introduction of new effective methods of diagnostics and treatment, oncologic patients have a much better prognosis and a chance for a full recovery. One of the countries that can boast the latest cancer treatment technics is Turkey.
Turkish oncologists have been successful in the treatment of various malignant diseases, including cancers of the brain, pancreas, prostate and ovaries. Turkish surgeons successfully operate even those tumors which have been found inoperable in other countries – thanks to the use of latest equipment and international and local patented treatment know-hows. For example, robotic perineal radical prostatectomy using Da Vinci Xi HD Surgical System, introduced by a Turkish urology professor, allows removing prostate tumors without opening the abdomen thanks to the use of special robotic equipment, which can reach the prostate through an opening made in the crotch.
In an era where treatment of cancer patients without surgical intervention is a reality, Cyberknife / Gammaknife treatment as well as chemotherapy, biotherapy and immunotherapy are utilized. In cases where radiation oncology is key Three-dimensional Conformal Radiotherapy, Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT), Brachytherapy, Ultrasound-guided Transperineal Prostate Implant are endorsed.
In Turkey, you will find a full range of professional oncologists, one in three of whom have studied in Europe or the USA. In addition to this, cancer treatment in Turkey is more affordable than in the West or in Israel.
