Best Medical Equipment for Kidney cancer Treatment and Diagnosis in Germany

Da Vinci Robotic Surgery System

Da Vinci Robotic Surgery System

Description

The system provides a surgeon with precise tiny instruments to manage surgery with maximal safety and accuracy. A surgeon manipulates on a special console, observing the operated area on 3D images in real-time. The tiny instruments make accurate incisions excluding the “trembling hand” effect and wrong movements.

Features

Da Vinci robotic system is used as an alternative to open surgery to reduce pain, bleeding, minimize risks of infection and trauma of healthy tissues. An operation is performed through several 1cm incisions, not a big one 15 cm in size as for open surgery. Due to this, a patient recovers faster compared to traditional surgery: within 2-3 weeks instead of several months.

Result for Kidney cancer

According to the data of 46 robotic-assisted nephrectomies performed, the total duration of surgery was 255 min, which is about 1.5 times longer than for open surgery. The blood loss during robotic intervention was 268 ml, meanwhile this index for open surgery is 1.5 times higher. It was reported that hospital stay was longer after open surgery.

CyberKnife

CyberKnife

Description

CyberKnife is a robotic device to perform radiosurgery with precise radiation delivery to the organs affected with benign and malignant tumors.

Features

This method allows destroying tumors without incisions and pain; it is frequently used as an alternative to surgery when neoplasms are hard to reach or cannot be operated. The radiation is directed accurately, so it does not affect healthy tissues or organs. Treatment with CyberKnife is an outpatient procedure: just after a session (it lasts about 30-90 minutes), a patient can return home and their everyday activities.

Result for Kidney cancer

40 patients with kidney cancer were examined. The medium follow-up continued for 28.1 months. After the CyberKnife therapy, in 98% of cases, cancer had been localized for 9 months. The complete remission rate was 42.2%.

CyberKnife
Gamma Knife

Gamma Knife

Description

Gamma Knife is a radiosurgery device to manage radiation therapy. It uses 192 radiation beams to precisely target brain tumors. Each beam goes separately through the healthy brain tissues, and then they meet together in the target delivering there a high radiation dose.

Features

The procedure is painless, performed without incisions and anesthesia. It is an alternative to traditional surgery for hard-to-reach or inoperable tumors. A GammaKnife session does not require admission; a patient can go back home and return to allowed activities just after a procedure.

Result for Kidney cancer

Within the study, 42 patients with brain metastases caused by kidney cancer received Gamma Knife treatment. In 80% of patients, neurological symptoms improved after Gamma Knife. MRI showed that brain metastases disappear at all in 9 people. The medium survival rate was more than 1 year.

Gamma Knife
Proton Therapy

Proton Therapy

Description

Proton therapy is a type of radiation therapy affecting tumors with protons, not X-rays. The X-rays damage healthy tissues on their way to a tumor that limits their usage. In the case with proton therapy, protons precisely hit a neoplasm, while healthy tissues remain unaffected that allow using stronger doses of irradiation to hit tumors located near vital organs. During a session, a patient lays on the table and a machine rotates producing proton beams to hit a tumor.

Features

This is an outpatient procedure; a person can leave a hospital just after a session is over. Usually, the whole treatment cycle takes 30 minutes to complete. It usually continues 5 times a week for several weeks. The radiation dose may change over the treatment. No specific rehab is needed. Such side effects as fatigue, headache, hair loss that can develop over time.

Result for Kidney cancer

22 patients adef 67 years on average with renal cell carcinoma were enrolled in the study. Clinicians received the following results after a medium follow-up of 37 months: 95% was a 3-year overall survival rate; no recurrence registered.

I am a Canadian who wanted to look for the kidney disease treatment in Hamburg right the way. I search on internet to find some one who can help me contact with doctor in Hamburg hospital and I found the Bookimed. First time, I really did not trust the Bookimed because I thought it is on internet - no face to face , but the Bookimed sent me a call immediately . After that, Liza Dudnik , the staff of Bookimed , contacted with me via email and phone. She helped me a lot to look for the kidneyprofessional doctor . Liza Dudnik worked very professional, kindly and helpful. From my heart bottom I would like to say thank her. Now I can tell people : I believe that the Bookimed is an agent that you can trust because it's service . Thank Bookimed and Thank Liza Dudnik again. God Bless You.

Verified review. The patient was treated of kidney cancer in Asklepios Hospital Barmbek

From the bottom of my heart I want to thank Professor Gross, as well as all the staff of the Asclepios clinic in Hamburg for their high professionalism, efficiency, sensitivity and attention to patients. About a month ago left an application on the site bookimed, within an hour I was contacted by coordinator Katerina, immediately offered several clinics specializing in oncourology. The choice fell on Asclepios in Hamburg, in particular, Professor Gross. Within a week, thanks to Katerina's efforts, prof. Gross, determined the tactics of treatment and already in a week there was immediate operation. There were some doubts that the nephrectomy could be performed laparoscopically, but the golden hands of prof. Gross know their business. The postoperative period went smoothly, recovered quickly. During the week of the stay, there were no complaints about the work of the staff: attentive, sensitive and affable. Conditions are more than comfortable. The language barrier was not a problem due to the well-coordinated work of the translators Lydia Goncharenko and Vladimir Fissenko. Separately, I want to once again express my gratitude to coordinator Katerina, who was always in touch, quickly resolved all sorts of difficulties. От всей души хочу поблагодарить профессора Гросса, а также весь персонал клиники «Асклепиос» в Гамбурге за высокий профессионализм, оперативность, чуткость и внимание к пациентам.

Около месяца назад оставил заявку на сайте bookimed, в течение часа со мной связалась координатор Катерина, сразу же предложила несколько клиник, специализирующихся в онкоурологии. Выбор пал на «Асклепиос» в Гамбурге, в частности, профессора Гросса.
Уже через неделю благодаря усилиям Катерины был организован (меня принял) проф. Гросс, определил тактику лечения и уже через неделю предстояла непосредственно операция. Были некоторые сомнения, что нефрэктомию удастся выполнить лапароскопически, но золотые руки проф. Гросса знают своё дело. Послеоперационный период прошёл гладко, восстановился быстро.
В течение недели пребывания ни разу не возникло нареканий к работе персонала: внимательные, чуткие и приветливые. Условия более чем комфортные. Языковой барьер не являлся проблемой благодаря слаженной работе переводчиков Лидии Гончаренко и Владимира Фиссенко.
Отдельно хочу ещё раз выразить слова благодарности координатору Катерине, которая всегда была на связи, оперативно разрешала разного рода трудности.

FAQ about Kidney cancer in Germany

How much does kidney cancer diagnosis and treatment cost in Germany?

German clinics accept foreign patients on the deposit basis: it is necessary to prepay the therapy before arrival at the clinic. Deposit is used for diagnostics and/or treatment. In some cases, some money left on the deposit after the treatment, so the clinic returns it.

The prices for kidney cancer screening and therapy are calculated individually. Read more about the price formation in Germany here.
