Israeli clinics are ranked number one in the world in percentage of patients who overcome cancer. Local oncologists are renowned worldwide for their ability to achieve lasting remission even in the most complicated of cases, which are often deemed “untreatable” in other countries. At the same time, treatment is focused not only on curing the disease, but also on preserving (as much as possible) the function of the affected organ(s) and quality of patients’ lives.

All diagnostic procedures are performed utilizing the most up-to-date imaging and endoscopic equipment. Additionally, much attention is paid to early detection and prophylaxis (including genetic analyses and highly-sensitive testing for patients with known risk factors). This helps catch the disease at an early stage when chances of it being completely cured are high.
