"Clinic definitely recommend
When they learned what was needed in the clinic, they didn’t even know where to run and whom to contact. Coordinators helped to select a clinic. They gave us a doctor. Everything went great, the doctor is a true professional.  Separately, I want to note the attitude to patients. We were met at the airport, brought to the clinic and there was already a translator waiting. Literally "by the hand" we were taken to the doctors, everyone translated. Then they provided a taxi to the hotel.   During the operation, the ward was provided for two people - for the patient and the attendant; both of them were included in the cost of the operation.   After surgery, the doctor held a consultation, making sure that you can fly back. And only then answered questions remotely that arose.  Clinic definitely recommend

Everything is clear and reasonable
Immediately I will note not the intrusive and at the same time "essentially" made by Alena presentation of the clinic. And really everything turned out to be as they described to me: the doctor explained how he sees my situation, what kind of opinion of Moscow doctors he agrees with, and what does not and what he proposes to do. Everything is clear and reasonable.

I would strongly recommend it to other people looking for medical care
I am very happy with the treatment I've so far received at Bumrungrad International Hospital. Beginning last year, I've made three separate visits for treatment at the hospital. The staff are extremely professional and efficient using very modern equipment. The cost of treatment is competitive. I would strongly recommend it to other people looking for medical care.

Doctors seemed professional
Doctors seemed professional. Low quality translation from Turkish to Russian and vice versa. For some reason, after PET KT (perhaps a coincidence), upon returning home, it was sharply worse. We had to urgently operate, although Turkish oncologists did not see the need for an operation, but offered to wait a month.

Everything went quite well....first of all, of course, thanks to the girl Natalia Bruyaka, who was always in touch and helped solve all the questions that I had along the way...Thank you very much to her for her timely and quick help on throughout the entire period... Everything was organized well... we were met at the airport, a VIP transfer, a black Mercedes, the driver, unfortunately, I don’t remember his name - a great guy, just an ace, took him to the hotel... Everything in the hotel super, 5 stars, good finishing, excellent staff, we were accommodated on the 8th floor, with a beautiful view of the city.... The next day we arrived at the clinic... They paid there, and without delay, they invited us to the operating room... The team is excellent , young guys and girls, cheerful and relaxed, (they even sang songs during the transplant)... the transplant went quite quickly, they got it done in 5 hours, because the people know their stuff, they are all true professionals, both the doctor and the guy, who drew the hair line, and the girls who were assistants....Everything is at the highest level..The transplant itself is painless, only at the very beginning, when the painkiller was administered, it was a little painful, but it lasted about 10 minutes.. In general, I am satisfied with the transplant itself , I hope that the result will not be good, we’ll see in a year.. Then we were taken back to the hotel, and I spent that day in the room, did not go anywhere.... The next day I had a rest day, and the hotel staff organized a tour for us to the historical center of Istanbul... We had a great time there, and a day later they took me back to the clinic, showed me and washed my hair, and the ace driver took us to the airport... Bottom line: without much strain, I had a hair transplant and my wife and I had a great time in Istanbul, trying different dishes, making excursions and having the opportunity to shop... Thank you very much to those people who organize such tours and carry out such work... I am very grateful to them...

FAQ about Xofigo Radium-223

What is radium-223 (Xofigo)?

Radium-223 is a kind of internal radiotherapy to treat metastases in the bones caused by prostate cancer. Xofigo is a brand name that produces radium-223.

Xofigo mechanism of action is the following: radium-223 affects bone cancer cells. This radioactive agent is similar to calcium, so it is absorbed by bones. As a result, cancer cells, located in the bones, are directly destroyed by radium-223 (Xofigo) radiation.

How is radium-223 (Xofigo) for prostate cancer used?

  1. A patient arrives to a hospital, undergoes diagnostic procedure to determine a dose of Xofigo injections.
  2. The medical center orders radium-223 (Xofigo). The delivery of the drug takes about 1 week. The therapy starts.
  3. Radium-223 (Xofigo) is a radioactive agent administered intravenously. A doctor puts a thin cannula in the vein during a treatment session. It takes about 1 minute.

The Xofigo injection is repeated every 4 weeks. The maximum number of injections is 6. The procedure is outpatient — you leave the hospital immediately after the injection. A patient can stay in the country for this period or to return home after injection.

To control a patient's health condition, blood tests are required between treatment sessions.

When is radium-223 (Xofigo) indicated?

Radium-223 (Xofigo) injection is indicated in case:

  • when surgical or hormonal treatments are ineffective for prostate cancer no longer
  • cancer (metastases) has spread to the bones but not other parts of the body
  • a patient has not been treated by Abiraterone (a hormonal therapy drug). The following treatment with radium-223, in this case, increases the risk of bone fractures.

Among the contraindications to radium-223 (Xofigo) for prostate cancer treatment may be:

Bone marrow pathologies/problems — radium-223 (Xofigo) can provoke lowering blood cells down. In this case, a patient will need a blood transfusion. Previous or current treatment with chemotherapy or extensive radiotherapy. Other abnormal health conditions.

Only a doctor can determine whether radium-223 (Xofigo) is adequate prostate cancer treatment in your case and estimate possible risks.

What are the side effects of radium-223 for prostate cancer?

Radium-223 (Xofigo) may cause such side effects:

  • diarrhea
  • nausea
  • swelling in the extremities
  • vomiting
  • reduced blood cells counts
  • pain in bones.

In most of the cases, side effects are mild. But do not hesitate to tell your doctor if some of them occur.

What are the recommendations after prostate cancer treatment with radium-223?

A doctor will give you recommendations specific for your case, however there some universal advice:

  • drink a lot of water for a few days after treatment to speed up radiation withdrawing from your body
  • wash the hands carefully every time you visit a toilet
  • wash your underwear separately to avoid radiation spread.

You need to follow this advice for several days during the treatment with radium-223.

What is the price for radium-223?

Radium-223 (Xofigo) cost is considered quite high compared to prostatectomy, HIFU, or brachytherapy prices, for instance.

However, radium-223 is the only treatment option that can prolong a patient's life in case of prostate cancer stage 4 with metastases in the bones.

The cost of radium-223 (Xofigo) is pointed for an injection. Only a doctor can determine how many doses a patient needs after diagnostic procedures.
