Department of Oncology, Radiology and Radiosurgery

Oncology is leading area of medicine where comprehensive treatment is especially important. High level of professionalism of Croatian oncologists, modern equipment and medical devices in operating room, latest chemotherapy are just a few reasons why many patients choose cancer treatment in Europe, namely in Croatia at our medical center Medisra. Our clinic applies the latest scientific research for cancer treatment.

Another reason why you should consider cancer treatment in Croatia are of course - prices. In countries such as Germany, Israel or America, the prices for treatment are very high and it is difficult to find a country where high quality medical services are successfully combined with cost savings.

Croatia turned out to be the place where both the price and quality of treatment allows patients to receive all the necessary medical care.

Our clinic uses the most modern methods of treatment, such as:

  • Intensity-modulated radiation therapy - Our specialists are using modern linear accelerator that customizes high energy x-rays or electrons to conform to a tumor’s shape and destroy cancer cells while sparing surrounding normal tissue.

  • Stereotactic Radiosurgery - Thanks to the use of the newest radiosurgery devices (Gamma-Knife, CyberKnife complexes), our specialists are able to safely deliver high doses of radiation to a cancerous tumor. Initially, this radiosurgery method was used to treat brain tumors, now is widely used to remove any malignant tumors.

  • Hybrid Therapy - Combination of surgical treatment and radiosurgery. This method is essential for patients with tumor invasion into muscular vessels.

  • Systemic chemotherapy with cytostatic and cytotoxic drugs which are more effective and less toxic. It is known that chemotherapy has different effects on different types of cancer. Our specialists use protocols, which combine several different chemotherapy drugs, making possible to cure even the most resistant types of chemotherapy.

  • Hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy - treatment of malignant tumors of the abdominal cavity, practically unknown in Russia. This is a highly concentrated, heated chemotherapy treatment that is delivered directly to the abdomen during surgery. In combination with cytoreductive surgery, hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy can effectively treat appendix, intestine, ovarian, and stomach cancer. Apart from a good therapeutic effect, this method of treatment minimizes side effects of traditional systemic chemotherapy (where chemotherapy drugs are administered intravenously).

  • Targeted therapy - new type of cancer treatment that uses protein substances to more precisely identify and attack cancer cells. Targeted therapy is almost effective as systemic chemotherapy, only that there are no disadvantages such as a negative effect on immunity and other side effects. Today, the greatest names in medicine agree that targeted therapy is the future of oncology. Many biological products that allow "detection" of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and intestine, breast, lung and pancreatic cancer are already available in Croatian clinics.

  • Immunotherapy - modern treatment with latest immunological agents.

  • Minimally invasive surgery - removal of tumors without making large cuts like in traditional open surgery. By using endoscopic instruments and intraoperative x-rays, our oncosurgeons can remove malignant tumor with fully accuracy. Surgeries like that minimize complications and make patients rehabilitation shorter.

These are just few methods that allow us to say that treatment in Croatia, and especially the treatment of oncology - is a synonym for quality medical services and effective therapy.

Patients who arrive in Croatia for cancer treatment will receive medical services comparable in quality with leading Swiss, German or Israeli clinics, but at a lower price.
