Best Medical Equipment for Lung cancer Treatment and Diagnosis

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 Lung cancer

389 patients with non-cell lung cancer had robotic-assisted lobectomy. The surgery took 60-120 min on average. A minimal blood loss (0-100 ml) was reported in 95.8% of cases. The hospital stay was 3-7 days on average. The study of 212 patients who had robotic surgery to remove lung cancer showed 75.6 months free-disease survival for stage 1, 42.3 months for stage 2, 51.2 months for stage 3, and 10.3 months for stage 4.

Da Vinci Robotic Surgery System
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 Lung cancer

The study based on CyberKnife treatments of 35 patients during a medium follow-up of 18 months demonstrated control of a tumor in 71% of cases with 77% survival rate. Another study of 56 patients showed 86% survival rate for 1-33 months follow-up. With CyberKnife treatment, a lung cancer patient will not experience such side effects as sore throat or breath shortness.

CyberKnife
TomoTherapy

TomoTherapy

Description

Tomotherapy represents a type of intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT). The device combines a CT scanner and linear accelerator to deliver radiation to the tumor. In-built CT scan receives images of a tumor before each treatment session that allows to target tumors precisely.

Features

With TomoTherapy, a tumor is affected with radiation slice-by-slice, not the entire neoplasm at once. The duration of one session is shortened: it takes several minutes, no hospital stay is necessary after the procedure. A patient can experience tiredness and appetite changes after tomotherapy.

Result for Lung cancer

616 patients with lung cancer were examined. 2 and 5-years survival rates are 73% and 56% correspondingly. The local tumor control of different degrees was observed in 63%-100%. TomoTherapy successfully provides early-stage non-small cell lung cancer and inoperative tumors treatment avoiding damage to surrounding vital healthy organs.

Price

from $7912

TomoTherapy
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 Lung cancer

The study examined 35 patients with a medium age of 82 years. All of them received proton-beam therapy. The overall 3-year survival rate was 67.2%: 58.2% in patients with inoperable lung cancer and 90% in those with operable lung cancer.

Questions and answers

What is the most common treatment for lung cancer?

Shaunak Valame
6 years of experience
Nashik , India
HCG Manavata Cancer Centre

Treatment for lung cancer varies with stage. In the early stage, surgery can be performed. In contrast, a combination of chemotherapy, immunotherapy, and targeted therapy has shown the best results in the advanced stage.

What is the success rate of treatment for lung cancer in India?

The success rate for lung cancer varies with stage. In the early stage, 5-year survival rates are up to the tune of 75%. In the advanced stage, the 3-year survival rates are 40%. Thus, we aim at early detection to provide the highest success possible.

Very friendly staff. Doctors are professionals in their field, they made an accurate diagnosis in a day, while in Kyrgyzstan, where my father-in-law lives, they could not put in 20 days. Thank you so much for organizing Barbara and Anna from bookimed. Очень доброжелательный персонал. Врачи профессионалы своего дела, диагноз точный поставили за сутки, тогда как в квргызстане где живет мой свекр не могли поставить за 20 дней. Огромное спасибо за организацию Варваре и Анне из букимеда.

Verified review. The patient was treated of lung cancer in Medical Center in Solingen

Not good. The people that I had appointments with did not show up. I met with others who seemed to doubt my records and then claimed that my medical imaging showed no problems whatsoever. I returned home and now seem to have pneumonia in the top of my lungs around the vertebra that are known to have lesions (T1,T2,T3). I consider your service to be a fraud.

Verified review. The patient was treated of lung cancer in Anadolu Medical Center

We were helped with the question with which we came to the Anadolu clinic, but sometimes there were questions with the bill. At the first consultation they said one price, at the second there were additional expenses. Also, the hotel is quite expensive, the food is the same every day. For a person who has come for chemotherapy, it is difficult to eat there early, as a special diet is required, which is difficult to maintain in a hotel. Нам помогли с тем вопросом, с которыми мы приехали в клинику Anadolu, но иногда были вопросы со счетом. На первой консультации сказали одну цену, на второй появились дополнительные траты. Также в отеле все достаточно дорого, еда каждый день одинаковая. Для человека, который приехал на химиотерапию, там питаться досрочно сложно, так как требуется особая диета, которую сложно поддерживать в отеле.

  • segmental resection — the removing of a part of the lung but not the entire one.
  • Radiotherapy. Such a treatment can be used in combination with chemo drugs. X-rays destroy cancer cells that remained after the surgery or spread to other organs as the brain.
  • Chemotherapy. Such an option is applied to stop malignant cells growth and to destroy the rest of them after surgery.
  • Immunotherapy. Such a treatment is frequently used for some forms of non-small cell lung cancer. These are drugs that stimulate the patient’s immunity to fight cancer. Oncologists apply this therapy when other options are ineffective.
  • Targeted therapy. It is also used for non-small cell lung cancer. Such drugs are used to destroy malignant cells and prevent their division. Not every patient can be a candidate for this therapy.
