About the department

The clinics are equipped with almost all the necessary range of diagnostic equipment for a quick and reliable diagnosis in case of suspicion of oncological pathology. The department is equipped with MRI, CT, mammography, ultrasound machines, etc. For morphological confirmation of the diagnosis under ultrasound control, biopsies of mammary glands, skin, soft tissues, liver, pancreas, lymph nodes are performed, followed by cytological, morphological and immunohistochemical studies.
All of the above allows to establish a diagnosis and determine the tactics of treating a patient in the shortest possible time.
Cancer council at K+31
Among the many options for a treatment strategy - a combination of radiation therapy, surgery or chemotherapy - the right choice is necessary, which cannot always be made by one specialist, which is why a multidisciplinary, or team, approach to the treatment of oncological diseases is correct in modern practice. For this, the K+31 clinics have implemented the possibility of holding an oncological consultation, where, in the course of a collective discussion by doctors of various specialties, the established diagnosis is clarified or corrected and the most effective individual treatment plan is drawn up.
The composition of the council
The council usually includes:
- diagnostic specialist.
Specialists of related specialties can be involved in the council.
In the clinic, targeted, immuno- and chemotherapy is carried out for patients with tumors of various localizations:
- mammary cancer;
- lung cancer;
- ovarian, endometrial, cervical cancer;
- cancer of the stomach and esophagus, pancreas;
- colon and rectal cancer;
- hepatocellular carcinoma;
- bladder cancer;
- prostate cancer;
- brain tumors.
Chemotherapy is carried out according to regulated protocols according to world recommendations. A personal treatment regimen is drawn up for each patient, taking into account the individual characteristics of the patient and the oncological disease. Chemotherapy is also carried out for patients who come from other countries with an already prescribed treatment regimen. This treatment can be carried out in a hospital setting.
If necessary, in the case of a serious condition of the patient, detoxification treatment is first carried out before chemotherapy to improve his condition.
The employees of the K+31 clinics also provide rehabilitation assistance to patients aimed at correcting water and electrolyte disorders, protein deficiency, detoxification, symptomatic and restorative intravenous therapy using medical nutrition, transfusion of blood components, as well as examination of patients who need dynamic observation after an oncological treatment.
An important area of the Clinic's oncological service is palliative (supportive) care for cancer patients in serious condition for pain relief, additional nutrition, and correction of other disorders.
Patients are provided with spacious, comfortable, 1 or 2-bed rooms, or suites. Patients are under the supervision of an attentive medical staff around the clock.
The Department of Oncology pays special attention to preventive work, the essence of which is to identify benign, potentially dangerous, precancerous diseases, as well as malignant tumors in those patients of the clinic who are being treated in other departments or are consulted by other specialists.
This is realized thanks to the close cooperation of oncologists with specialists from other profiles of K+31 clinics.
