We got to the MEMORIAL clinic due to an urgent diagnosis. The successful outcome of the operation depended on promptness. The question was about days. The operation was carried out the next day. The most difficult operation according to the Whipple method. Conducted by professor, head of surgery. Low bow to him. The entire staff of the department works perfectly, promptly responds to any request. Separately, I want to say about the work of the translator Aida. High qualification, operational work at any time of the day, sincerity - only a small description of her qualities. Special thanks for providing meals to the patient and accompanying person. The cuisine is very tasty, in some positions it is better than homemade. I enjoyed the vegetarian cuisine. But there is a different one. A low bow to all the staff of the clinic. They saved my husband's life.

FAQ about Chondrosarcoma Treatment in Turkey

Diagnostics of chondrosarcoma in best world centers: methods and peculiarities

When chondrosarcoma is suspected, such methods of diagnostics are applied in the best world centers:

  • X-ray examination (shows a destruction of damaged area, a bone around this area is swollen)
  • CT allows seeing a three-dimensional image of the internal parts of the body
  • MRI estimates the level of involvement of organs, vessels and nerve fibers
  • Biopsy detects a tumor grade
  • Bone scintigraphy shows all bone destructions.

Treatment of chondrosarcoma in the best world centers: methods and peculiarities

Most of chondrosarcomas are resistant to chemotherapy.The main method of treatment of chondrosarcoma is resection of primary tumor and its metastases. But in these cases chemotherapy can be effective:

  • Dedifferentiated chondrosarcoma (a highly differentiated tumor that has degenerated into a malignant fibrous histiocytic or osteogenic sarcoma): this kind of tumor is sensitive to chemotherapy
  • Mesenchymal chondrosarcoma (rare small-cell variant of chondrosarcoma)

A choice of method of treatment depends on the range of factors: size and location of tumor, prevalence of process, cancer stage and patient’s conditions.

Chondrosarcomas are rare, and they are treated in the specialized world centers and clinics. Best doctors usually apply radiosurgery using a system of robotic surgery GammaKnife, radiation therapy and chemotherapy.

Some world centers specialized in treatment of chondrosarcoma use tomotherapy.

In some cases, doctors are forced to resort to the amputation or hemipelvectomy.

Chondrosarcoma: prognosis and survival rate

The survival rate and prognosis for patients with chondrosarcomas can vary depending on stage of tumor, its location, metastatic process and other factors:

  • Chondrosarcoma of stage 1 doesn’t spread metastases, and in case of surgical intervention the survival rate is 90%.
  • Chondrosarcoma stage 2 - up to 60%.
  • Chondrosarcoma stage 3 - 30%.

In case of localized chondrosarcoma 5-year survival rate is 69-72%, longer term prognosis (5-10 years) is 53-57%.

Undifferentiated chondrosarcoma has 5-year survival rate in 10% of cases.
