The Oncology Department at the Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center is a referral center for cancer patients from Israel and all over the world. A multidisciplinary team of highly skilled oncologists, hematologists, radiologists, orthopedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, microsurgeons, plastic surgeons, and pathologists provide comprehensive treatments for a wide range of cancers.
We diagnose and treat all types of cancer, including but not limited to:
Our world-class specialists use the latest technologies and procedures in the fields of
surgery, and cell therapy.
The oncologists at Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center are actively engaged at the forefront of scientific and research activities, in conjunction with the leading domestic and global research institutions and organizations (such as CECOG in Europe and RTOG and NSABP in the USA), as well as pharmaceutical companies. The most innovative drugs and procedures are developed and clinically tested here for various types of cancer (breast cancer, lung cancer, intestinal cancer, brain cancer, prostate cancer, soft tissue sarcomas, etc.) and different stages of the disease. Experimental drugs and procedures are offered to our patients only with prior approval from the Ministry of Health and the Ethics Committee of Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center.
The department includes an in-patient facility, an oncology day care unit, and psychological and social support units.
In most cases, chemotherapy is used as a background cancer therapy. Apart from successful management of the side effects of chemotherapy, the specialists at Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center have learned to effectively prevent many such side effects.
Chemotherapy sessions, lasting from several minutes to several hours, are usually delivered on an outpatient basis. If the treatment regimen requires longer sessions, they can be completed either in hospital or at home, using stationary IV infusion devices.
Targeted (Biological) Therapies
“Targeted therapies” are the most innovative cancer therapies. They use drugs and medications to identify and attack specific targets – molecules or molecular mechanisms intrinsic to cancer cells.
Targeted therapies have been successfully applied by the specialists at Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center. They usually cause much fewer side effects than chemotherapy. Biotherapy is often delivered concurrently with chemotherapy.
The Oncology Department team believe that every patient deserves personal and nurturing attention, with their unique individual needs catered for.
Supportive therapies are an integral part of cancer treatment. They are delivered by a multidisciplinary team, consisting of oncologists and physicians from other specialties (gastroenterologists, pain syndrome specialists, etc.). Within a wider category of “supportive therapies,” there may be procedures that help manage the side effects caused by cancer therapy (such as nausea and vomiting), and treat various cancer symptoms. Supportive therapies may also include pain syndrome management, nutrition consulting, anemia treatment, etc.
