Soft Tissue and Bone Cancer Treatment in Israel

Bone and soft tissue cancers are a large and heterogeneous group of malignant mesenchymal tumours. When such a condition (i.e. sarcoma, rhabdomyosarcoma, etc.) is suspected, a very thorough work-up is required to determine the exact type of tumour and devise the most appropriate treatment plan. Listed below is our soft tissue and bone cancer treatment program in Israel.

Work-up

Workup will include the following investigations:

  • Extensive blood workup (including tumour markers)
  • Revision of pathology specimens including basic IHC staining (provided one was performed at an earlier date)
  • PET CT scan
  • MRI of the affected area
  • Orthopedic oncologist consultation
  • Oncologist consultation

The investigations will take 5 business days to complete. Please note that if you hadn’t had a biopsy prior to your arrival in Israel, or if the samples you've brought with you are of insufficient quality, a new biopsy will be performed.

Treatment

Soft tissue and bone cancer treatment usually includes 6 to 8 cycles of chemotherapy (sometimes in conjunction with radiation therapy) followed by surgery. The price of the operation is determined by the tumour's size and location; however, it will usually include the following:

  • Routine preoperative preparation including an ECG, chest X-ray and an anesthesiologist consultation
  • Operative procedure and 5 days of hospitalization
  • Disposable and surgical materials
  • Express pathological study and conclusive histopathological study.

All medical procedures will take place at Assuta Medical Center's Tel Aviv's branch.

Please note that the above soft tissue & bone cancer treatment program is preliminary and may change depending on the results of your workup.

Please Note

The suggested treatment program (with a specialist recommended by us) will take place at Assuta Medical Center. If you would like, we can instead arrange the treatment at one of Israel’s public hospitals. In such case, the cost of the surgery (not including the logistics package) will be 20 to 30 per cent lower. However, while we can definitely guarantee that the surgery will be performed by one of that hospital’s top experts, the name of the particular expert will be selected based on their rotation schedule.
