Personalized care and cancer immunotherapy treatment
Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center is at the forefront of personalized care for oncology patients, offering treatment options personalized to each patient based on his or her genetic profile. The Oncology Institute provides the most advanced genetic testing available, helping care providers choose the most effective patient treatment. Based on individual biological and genetics data, this service includes the PDL-1 test for personalized immunotherapy. Patients may also have the opportunity to participate in clinical research for progressive therapeutics.
Immunotherapy is the future of cancer care. Many Oncology Institute patients participate in clinical research studies for progressive treatments such as Keytruda and Opdivo – both for treatment and compassionate use when medicine has exhausted all other alternatives. Investing in pioneering immunotherapy, the Oncology Institute has established Israel’s only oncology unit to test whether patients are suitable for immunotherapy treatment.
FoundationOne testing for genetic profile testing
Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center has a unique partnership with Roche Pharmaceuticals, which offers FoundationOne – genetic testing for patient sensitivity to a range of treatments and medications. The test provides the most extensive, reliable, and precise information available on cancer cell genetic profiles.

Rapid appointments and progressive technologies
From the moment patients are referred to the Radiotherapy Institute, they follow several key steps, from physician examination to radiotherapy treatment planning by an expert physicist to sophisticated imaging methods. To expedite care, referral-to-treatment time is 10 days or less. Patients with emergency situations can receive quicker turnaround, if possible, sometimes within 24 hours. Technological leadership in radiotherapy
The Radiotherapy Institute has four linear accelerators, among the most advanced in Israel, which perform the most effective, sophisticated treatments, while minimizing side effects. In addition, the institute features a new radiotherapy machine for skin cancer – the only machine of its kind in Israel. This device for Mohs surgery provides highly focused skin cancer treatment prevents aesthetic damage and the need for complex surgeries.

Undergoing cancer care is hard enough. In order to simplify care for oncology patients, the Oncology Institute operates the Oncology Urgent Care Center, where patients can turn for targeted care – instead of being treated at the general Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center Emergency Room.
