About the department

The Department of Adult and Pediatric Oncology, Radiation Oncology at the Acibadem Healthcare Group offers the full range of medical services for the prevention, diagnostics and treatment of various types of cancer. To achieve successful treatment results, the department's highly qualified team of doctors has in its arsenal vast experience in the treatment of cancers, state-of-the-art equipment and many effective therapeutic techniques. The department's specialists apply a multidisciplinary approach to the diagnostics and treatment of patients – each clinical case is considered individually, with the participation of oncologists, radiation therapists, chemotherapists, highly qualified specialists, psychologists, etc. The department is headed by Prof. Dr. med. Nuran Senel Beşe.

A crucial role in the treatment success is played by the accurate diagnostics, which allows the doctors to determine the type of tumor, its accurate location and stage of the pathological process. The department performs the most modern imaging examinations, for example, intraoperative 3 Tesla MRI, PET-CT, digital mammography with tomosynthesis, instant flash CT. The department also has progressive laboratories, which provide the full range of necessary laboratory tests.

In most cases, the surgical removal of the neoplasm is the main type of cancer therapy. The decision on the necessity and type of surgical intervention is made taking into account the specific diagnosis and clinical indications. The department's specialists have excellent skills in laparoscopic interventions using the innovative da Vinci Surgical System. Such operations have a number of advantages in comparison with classical surgery, particularly, minimal pain, reduced blood loss, small scars and a short period of hospitalization. The robotic operations are especially often performed for cancer of the reproductive organs in men and women, cardiovascular pathologies, ENT diseases, etc.

In addition, the department has excellent options for radiation therapy. Radiation therapy is used both in curative (often in combination with surgery and chemotherapy) and palliative purposes (to improve the quality of life of patients with incurable stages of cancer). The innovative equipment is used for radiation therapy, for example, Rapidarc, Trilogy linear accelerator, MRIdian® Linac devices, TrueBeam®, etc. This allows the team of the department's doctors to complete cure various stages of cancer.
