oncological implants The basic method of treatment of malignant bone tumors - surgical intervention, which can ensure the complete removal of the cancer cells from the body. The modern level of development of medicine offers many solutions depending on the nature, degree of development, the size and location of the tumor. For these same indicators experienced this surgery specialists take the decision to hold a particular method of treatment.

Where to treat bone cancer?

Through continuous funding for the development of medicine, and a special system of laws and rules that encourage all the Israeli medical personnel to continuously improve their knowledge and skills, the Israeli medicine got to that level, which allows for the most complex operations with bone cancer with minimal risk to life and human health. That Israel clinics professionals save many lives each year.

Medical service «Tlv.Hospital» closely cooperates with 7 clinics in the country and stands ready to assist in the organization of the entire process of treatment and stay in Israel.

Bone cancer - surgery in Israel

For operating the treatment of cancer in 90% of limbs and joints of cases applied the method of organ-preserving resection of the tumor and the adjacent normal tissues. Organ-operation with bone cancer and allow to save human life and limb, but the complexity of its implementation is subject to certain additional risks:

  1. The possibility of complete elimination of the tumor and its metastases depends on the experience and skill of the surgeon, the quality of preoperative diagnosis, the patient's health, and other factors.
  2. During a resection of the cancerous tumor arising near the major vessels and nerves limb, the probability of damage is sufficiently high. In turn, this may lead to violations of the functioning of an arm or leg.
  3. Oncology prostheses, which are installed instead of removing the bones and joints tend to cause inflammation of the adjacent bone. This usually occurs as a result of infection and can lead to amputation. Therefore, a patient having an implant, you should be very careful to treat him at home. In addition, children need to be replaced periodically oncological implants, because children skeleton intensity changes during its development.

In extreme cases, when the progression of the disease, its location or other factors do not allow you to save the body, the surgeon makes a decision to carry out an amputation. This operation involves bone cancer full wide excision of the human upper or lower limbs and removing a portion of a limb together with some amount of healthy tissue, malignant neoplasm localization upstream. After surgery for bone cancer experts are carefully studying the edges of healthy tissue excised for the presence of cancer cells in them. In cases where they do not exist, the tissue is called negative or "clean". This is to ensure that the likelihood of recurrence is minimal.

Preparation and preliminary procedures

Surgery for bone cancer require a responsible approach to each stage of the treatment of the complex. So the first thing to do - it's a complete diagnosis of the patient. To do this, a qualified doctor prescribes a set of tests and procedures. They are mandatory:

  1. Blood analysis
  2. Radiography of the affected body part.
  3. Cancer screening is required for detailed study of the nature of the spread of cancer cells.
  4. MR.
  5. Penetrating needle biopsy, which will determine the type of neoplasm. If she did not give the desired results, make open biopsy.
  6. Computed tomography of the chest.

Also during the operation when the bone cancer occurs in parallel MRI diagnosis, which allows the surgeon to detect all cancer cells and remove them efficiently with minimal loss of the patient's healthy tissues.

Psychological preparation of the patient for surgery

Amputation - a great biological, physical and psycho-emotional stress for the human body at any age. Therefore psychologists work before and after the surgery with the patient. This is particularly important when the patient is in adolescence.

In Israel's highly specialized cancer clinics in patient support is also due to regular meetings with the attending physician and patients undergoing surgery and rehabilitation period. Thus, a person can discuss their fears and ensure the correctness of its decision.

Recovery after surgery for cancer of the bone

Immediately after the procedure, the person in need of care and support of a good psychologist, rheumatologist and other specialists, who will help to quickly return to the former way of life and give necessary recommendations. It is important that after undergoing surgery for cancer of the bones people as soon as possible to occupational therapy - daily activities. This will give your body a boost for speedy full recovery and minimize the risk of recurrence in the future.

Oncological implants and organ operations

If a bone tumor is relatively small, it does not pass through the blood vessels and nerves are important, and the doctor sees an opportunity to save the limb, then performed surgery to remove a lesion of the disease along with the surrounding tissue. Also, for cancer treatment, located in the bone tissue, such as the shoulder or hip joint, apply resection of affected parts of bone and excision of healthy tissue around the affected area so extensively as possible. Thereafter, instead of the distal portion of the skeleton surgeon installs Cancer prosthesis or filling a bone cavity with bone cement.

All oncological implants manufactured individually from biologically neutral but sufficiently durable materials: titanium alloy, plastic, ceramic, cobalt chromium-molybdenum and others. Such artificial bones and joints make it possible to save not just a course, but its full functionality as a normal performance of the joints is reduced in 90% of cases. Clinically tested, that the rehabilitation of the body after undergoing resection and replacement of the affected bone implant is much faster and easier than after amputation. In addition, the quality and functionality of modern implants are constantly being improved as rapidly evolving technology. For example, a child in Israel today you can install a special implant that will independently increase in line with the rate of growth of the skeleton, thus avoiding repeated operations on prosthesis replacement.

A high level of surgical oncology in Israel can successfully carry out modern organ-operation (100% accounting for 90%) and reconstructive using bone, metal, plastic and ceramic implants with bone cancer.

As a result, Israeli surgeons preserve life, limb, and in most cases restore full functionality of the affected organ.
