A doctor there are such treatments as:
- surgery to remove the cancer;
- radiation therapy;
- the use of hormonal therapy;
- methods for the “Gamma knife”, when sources of radiation from different sources are focused at the point of location of the tumor, in the end, the healthy cells are not damaged, and the tumor cells die;
- classic and stereotactic radiosurgery;
Thanks to the considerable experience treating cancer patients, the use of advanced technology, modern technical base of specialized branches of Israeli doctors are even for the treatment of advanced cases of cancer, to give hope for recovery for each patient.
