The Ukrainian Center of TomoTherapy cooperates with the best surgeons of Kirovograd regional oncologist dispensary in terms of a selection of the surgical intervention’s optimal extent for each patient as well as during provision for surgical patients of the pre- and postoperative radiation therapy. In the framework of our cooperation, we always give priority to less traumatic operations.
The preoperative radiotherapy is intended for reducing the size of a tumor, hence, of the extent and complexity of a surgical intervention. The preoperative radiotherapy is also focused on destruction of the tumor’s peripheral cells which may be a cause of recurrence. In certain cases, application of this irradiation type helps convert an inoperable tumor into an operable one.
The postoperative radiotherapy helps destroy the cancer cells remaining after the operation and affects the lymphatic system which allows to exclude, to the extent possible, the likelihood of certain risk factors and disease recurrence. This approach maximizes the principle of the organ-sparing treatment.
We invite you to visit the Ukrainian Center of TomoTherapy to ascertain first-hand the allegation: diagnosis “cancer” today is not a sentence!
