Cancer treatment at Medipol Oncology Branch Hospital has an advantage of offering a combination of multidisciplinary studies such as:

Oncological Surgery

At Medipol Oncology Hospital, internationally trained and experienced academicians can perform all complex surgical oncology procedures successfully ranging from treatment of prostate cancer to breast cancer.

It is a specialty that focuses on the surgical treatment of cancer. Cancer disease is a complicated disease that must be managed by many branches (multidisciplinary approach) such as medical oncology, radiation oncology, nuclear medicine and pathology, both in the diagnosis and treatment stages.
In addition to eliminating cancer surgically, surgical oncologists also perform palliative surgeries to help control pain, increase the patient’s comfort level, and manage cancer-related symptoms and side effects.
Oncological surgeons take an active role not only in the treatment phase, but also in the diagnosis of cancer that can be completely eliminated by early diagnosis.

Oncological surgery applications must be performed by surgeons specialized in that area. Studies have proven that cancer surgeries are performed by surgical oncologists specialized in this field, who have a multidisciplinary perspective, and have improving effects on the survival and quality of life of patients.
In the General Surgery Unit of our hospital, the treatment of breast, thyroid, stomach, pancreatic, colon and anal region cancers is performed with modern methods (Laparoscopic-Oncoplastic) by Surgical Oncology Specialists.

Medical Oncology

Medical oncology is a category in which drugs, chemotherapy and other related therapies like biological response modifiers and hormone therapies are used in the treatment of cancer. Diagnosis and treatment of all cancer types is handled through multidisciplinary approach in Medipol Oncology Hospital.

Scanning programs performed to ensure the early diagnosis of cancer, the determination of those who are healthy but carry cancer risk and advising the patients and their relatives of the forms of cancer protection and other services offered by the medical oncology department.

Radiation Oncology

Radiation therapy uses high-energy radiation to shrink tumors and kill cancer cells. X-rays, gamma rays and charged particles are types of radiation used for cancer treatment. The radiation may be delivered by a machine outside the body (external-12 beam radiation therapy) or it may come from radioactive material placed in the body near cancer cells (internal radiation therapy).

External-Beam Radiation Therapy

Patients usually receive external-beam radiation therapy in daily treatment sessions over the course of several weeks. The number of treatment sessions depends on many factors, including the total radiation dose that will be given. One of the most common types of external-beam radiation therapy is called 3-dimensional conformal radiation therapy (3D-CRT). 3D-CRT uses very sophisticated computer software and advanced treatment machines to deliver radiation to very precisely shaped target areas.

Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT)

IMRT uses hundreds of tiny radiation beam-shaping devices, called collimators, to deliver a single dose of radiation. The collimators can be stationary or can move during treatment, allowing the intensity of the radiation beams to change during treatment sessions. This kind of dose modulation allows different areas of a tumor or nearby tissues to receive different doses of radiation. The goal of IMRT is to increase the radiation dose to the areas that need it and reduce radiation exposure to specific sensitive areas of surrounding normal tissue. Compared with 3D-CRT, IMRT can reduce the risk of some side effects, such as damage to the salivary glands (which can cause dry mouth) when the head and neck are treated with radiation therapy.

Image-Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT)

In IGRT, repeated imaging scans (CT, MRI, or PET) are performed during treatment. These imaging scans are processed by computers to identify changes in a tumor’s size and location due to treatment and to allow the position of the patient or the planned radiation dose to be adjusted during treatment as needed. Repeated imaging can increase the accuracy of radiation treatment and may allow reductions in the planned volume of tissue to be treated, thereby decreasing the total radiation dose to normal tissue.

Repeated imaging can increase the accuracy of radiation treatment and may allow reductions in the planned volume of tissue to be treated, thereby decreasing the total radiation dose to normal tissue. Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) delivers radiation therapy in fewer sessions, using smaller radiation fields and higher doses than 3D-CRT in most cases. 13 By definition, SBRT treats tumors that lie outside the brain and spinal cord. Because these tumors are more likely to move with the normal motion of the body, and therefore cannot be targeted as accurately as tumors within the brain or spine, SBRT is usually given in more than one dose. SBRT can be used to treat only small, isolated tumors, including cancers in the lung and liver, adrenal gland, pancreas.

Internal Radiation Therapy

is radiation delivered from radiation sources (radioactive materials) placed inside or on the body. Several brachytherapy techniques are used in cancer treatment. It is majorly used in gynecological cancers.

Nuclear Medicine

Nuclear medicine is a branch of medical imaging that uses small amounts of radioactive material to diagnose and determine the severity of or treat a variety of diseases, including many types of cancers, heart disease, gastrointestinal, endocrine, neurological disorders and other abnormalities within the body. Highly simplified, a typical procedure would involve discussing the procedure with the patient, injecting the radiopharmaceutical which localizes in the area of interest, then is imaged using a special camera. It is like taking an X-ray from the inside-out. As Medipol Mega University Hospital we are proud to have the top of the line nuclear medicine equipment such as PET / CT, CARDIAC SPECT / CT, SPECT/ CT with updated versions. medicine into or around a nerve or the spine.

Pediatric Oncology

The Pediatric Oncology Branch is dedicated to improving outcomes for children and young adults with cancer and genetic tumor predisposition syndromes. It is thought to be one of the most challenging of specialties. There are many medical professionals who devote themselves to some aspect of this specialty. These could include the many medical technicians that may perform or aid in treatment as prescribed by a pediatric oncologist. Pediatric oncology, while it may concern itself most with eradication of cancerous illness, may also need reflect on how best to preserve a mentally healthy atmosphere for the child through providing parental support as possible. Our pediatric oncology service and staff are ready to take care the patients medically and emotionally also all our architecture structure has designed by the patients emotionally needs.

Latest Technology for Imaging “PET-CT”

PET-CT is a molecular imaging method that allows the changes in the body caused by diseases to be detected using very low doses of radioactive substances that have no side effects on the human body.

What are the advantages of “PET-CT”?

PET-CT is a reliable imaging method as the derived information has a high rate of accuracy.
It enables diseases to be diagnosed at an early stage.

It helps to plan the treatment of diseases in the most accurate way.

After the treatment process, it shows how the disease responds to the treatment.
PET-CT makes the treatment time advantageous by avoiding unnecessary multiple surgical operations and medical methods.

The main types of cancer for which PET-CT is used are:

  • Lung cancer
  • Breast cancer
  • Lymphoma (lymphoma)
  • Gynecological cancers
  • Colorectal cancers
  • Languages : English, Russian, Turkish
