CANCER TREATMENT AT ANADOLU

9 oncology departments work on the premises of Anadolu Hospital. Oncologists here specialize in the treatment of breast, skin, gastrointestinal organs cancers, spine and brain tumors.

Anadolu specialists use a unique diagnostic method in the early stages of cancer — CTC (Circulating Tumor Cells), also called as a liquid biopsy. It allows determining cancer even when a tumor is small (5 mm), and cannot be detected with traditional diagnostic methods.

Radiation therapy

Radiation therapy without surgery usually takes 6-8 weeks. One radiation cycle lasts 5-20 minutes 5 days a week. After the surgical intervention, radiotherapy takes less time — 4-6 weeks.

Radiation therapy may be combined with chemo, immune and hormone therapies to make the treatment more efficient.

Anadolu Hospital is among a few medical facilities in Turkey to perform radiation therapy with such innovative devices as:

  • CyberKnife
  • Truebeam.

CyberKnife

Cyberknife is a minimally invasive method of radiation therapy. It is used as an alternative to traditional surgery to treat a small or hard-to-reach tumors, cancer relapse.

A patient does not require anesthesia before the procedure. There are no inflammatories and infections after the CyberKnife treatment which are possible during traditional surgery.

The CyberKnife irradiates a tumor with up to 0.5 mm accuracy. That's why the healthy tissues are not damaged.

A doctor determines the longevity of the treatment course individually for each clinical case. Usually, it does not exceed a week. Each session lasts approximately 1-1.5 hours. The treatment is carried out on an outpatient basis, so after the therapy, a patient can immediately return to the normal lifestyle.

Varian Edge

The Varian Edge system is considered the most advanced radiosurgical and radiotherapy technique in the world. It is used to treat cancer anywhere in the body (in the brain, spine, neck, lung, liver, prostate, etc.), at the severe stages of malignancy, and its metastases and relapse.

Varian Edge moves around a patient to target a tumor from many different angles at the high speed. It helps achieve higher accuracy and save healthy tissues. This therapy takes 2-4 times less time than any other radiotherapeutic method. As a result, a patient undergoes treatment 50% more quickly.

Varian Edge is a non-invasive technique. The average duration of the procedure is 15-20 minutes. Anadolu doctors perform this radiotherapeutic method on an outpatient basis. So a patient may returns to their everyday lifestyle just after the therapy.

Surgical oncology

Anadolu surgeons remove tumors with the Da Vinci system. Da Vinci is a surgical robot, designed to carry out the most complex minimally invasive operations in the field of urology, general surgery, gynecology, and thoracic surgery.

Advantages of the Da Vinci robot-assisted surgery:

  • A surgeon makes 3-4 small incisions that reduce pain and give a better cosmetic result (small scars remain).
  • Patients have a shorter period of hospitalization.
  • Because of the small incisions, the risk of infections is minimal.
  • Da Vinci robot helps a surgeon to take control after each step of the operation. The robot has two cameras providing 3D precise images to control the surgery process.

The Anadolu Bone Marrow Transplant Center accepts patients over 16 years old. Specialists perform more than 250 bone marrow transplants annually. Since 2010, Anadolu doctors have conducted over 3,000 bone marrow replacements.

  2. PET-CT is a combination of computed and positron emission tomography. It is the most effective technology for detection cancer at early stages and metastases. It is also used for radiotherapy planning and analysis of the therapeutic response.
  3. Digital mammography with tomosynthesis helps to obtain 2- and 3D high-quality images and perform breast surgery precisely. Cancer is diagnosed in the early stages, which increases the effectiveness of treatment and the chances for complete recovery increase significantly.

"We are very happy with the doctor Sinan and Zahida curator, they are very friendly, attentive and knowledgeable people
image
Bookimed handed over our documents to Anadolu and the next day we were contacted by the curator Zakhida from Anadolu. The curator sent us a list of hotels with whom Anadolu cooperates under the contract (discount for Anadolu patients), made a reservation and organized a transfer from the airport to the hotel, made an appointment with doctors, for tests, PET CT, etc. and sent us a schedule for November 8. We arrived on November 7, we were met by a transfer from Anadolu and taken to the hotel. The next day, November 8, we went to Anadolu, we were met in the hall by the curator Zahida and the translator Muhamed. Our doctor Sinan. Analyzes, Pet CT, MRI, ultrasound of the heart and even the review of slides, the results are prepared quickly.

"The result of the consultation was more than satisfactory
image image image image
The most basic and most important is the medical equipment for a complete high-quality diagnosis. A small minus is the very low quality of the Internet, from the wishes: the possibility of placing on the territory of a small street sports complex. The territory of the clinic, the ward, the clinic itself comply with all modern world standards.

"I express my deep gratitude to the whole team for your hardworking work

Hello. First, I want to wish you good health. To begin with, my sister and I met at the airport, brought to the Titanic Hotel at 10:00, we had breakfast there, and waited until 12:00 until the room was completed. I advise you to stay at this hotel, as the clinic itself is located nearby. We were already waiting for us at the clinic, everything went well, we made a diagnosis based on the images, glasses and blocks that we brought with us. Doctors patient, answered our questions professionally. I want to tell you that the clinic has a good dining room, where you can dine for 20-40lir for two people. Cheaper than a hotel. I express my deep gratitude to the whole team for your hardworking work. Regards, Almira and Dinara.
