Cancer treatment

Doctors of the Oncology Department accept children and adults.

PET-CT is available here for an accurate diagnosing and individual treatment plan development. Using PET-CT, doctors can detect even the smallest tumors up to 1 mm in size.

The Istinye oncologists carry out such cancer treatments as:


This method is considered the most minimally invasive — the operation is performed through small incisions of 0.5-5 cm. In contrast, an open intervention requires the 10-15 cm incision.

Laparoscopy minimizes the damage of healthy tissues and blood loss, so the patient recovers faster than after open surgery.


The Istinye Liv oncologists apply chemotherapy for comprehensive cancer treatment. There are such types of chemo as:

  • neoadjuvant — prescribed before radiation therapy or surgery to remove the tumor
  • adjuvant — used after the surgery or radiotherapy.


Radiation therapy is used for benign and malignant tumors treatment with ionizing radiation. It destroys cancer cells and therefore stops the development of the disease.

Radiotherapy is prescribed both independently and in combination with other cancer treatment methods.

Radiofrequency ablation (RFA)

RFA affects the tumor with a high temperature of radiofrequency waves. During the procedure, the doctor uses an ultrasound or CT scan to accurately direct the radiofrequency waves and not damage the healthy tissues.

Radiofrequency ablation is used to treat small neoplasms up to 3 cm in bones, lungs, liver, kidneys, adrenal glands, and prostate gland.


This cancer treatment method stimulates the immune system to fight the tumor, so the body can recognize cancer cells and destroy them.

According to the hospital data, immunotherapy is the most effective for Hodgkin's lymphoma, melanoma, neck tumors, lungs, breast, kidney, and bladder treatment. Immunotherapy does not cause side effects compared with chemotherapy.


Neurosurgeons accept patients with spinal cord, brain, and peripheral nervous system disorders. To make the operations as safe and effective as possible, doctors use:

  • neuronavigation — the computer technologies that allow the surgeon to control the movements of tools with an accuracy of 1 mm;
  • neuromonitoring — a computerized system that allows not to affect the brain functions.

For operations on the brain and spinal cord, doctors perform microsurgery, an intervention enlarging and illuminating the operated area that allows minimizing the risk of bleeding.

Organ transplant

The Istinye specialists perform organ transplants for adults and children. They carry out liver and kidney transplant operations along with complex interventions like simultaneous transplantation of several organs.

The Organ Transplant Department is headed by Professor Ayhan Dinсkan who performed more than 1,000 liver transplants and 5,000 kidney transplants in children and adults. The success rate of the donor organ acceptance is 91.7%, as Istinye Liv Hospital reports.


The Istinye urologists conduct surgical treatment of urolithiasis (stones), cysts, acute renal failure, prostate diseases and congenital malformations of the urinary system. Doctors accept adults and children for treatment.

"Firstly!!! We thank Igor (our medical coordinator) for his professionalism !!!"
Firstly!!! We thank Igor (our medical coordinator) for his professionalism !!! Clinic (University Hospital Istinye Liv Hospital Bahcesehir / Turkey / Istanbul) where we were helped very much! It is very convenient that translators are present, since we do not really know the Turkish language. We were received by a doctor, a professional in his field, an associate professor, he explained everything competently, looked, prescribed treatment (the wife was very pleased), thank God, there was no hospitalization. The attitude is certainly not comparable with Russia ... I bet 10 out of 10 !!!!

I went to Turkey for diagnostics at the Istinye clinic, there are many impressions and, unfortunately, they are not very good. To begin with, the clinic itself is good and the equipment is also at the level, everything went quickly and waited for the result. Because quarantine began in Turkey, flew home, and here it began, although the coordinators promised to keep in touch with me. In short, they discouraged all the desire to go there again and do the operation there! Because it all depends on your coordinator and translator. They only work well with people who pay a lot and no questions asked. I do not advise you to go there, just because everything is decided not by the doctor, but by the coordinator, he even provides you with the prices !!!! There is only one negative left !!!!

I went to the Liv Istinier clinic for treatment. The treatment was planned for a month. It was provided with an examination and recommendations for treatment at home. In general, the trip went well, thanks to the coordinators Dilvar, Tuba, Niyaz. SPECIAL THANKS TO BUKIMEDA COORDINATOR PAVL. Before the trip, I read a lot of reviews, what problems there might be. I also had them, but Pavel was always in touch, and it was all solved in 5-10 minutes, without exaggeration. In 3-4 months, if everything is normal, I will go to the clinic for control.
