About the department

The Department of Oncology at the Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center offers the full range of classic and innovative treatment methods of all types of cancer and associated pathological conditions. Each patient is offered an individually designed treatment regimen corresponding to the stage of cancer and specific clinical indications. If necessary, psycho-oncological care is provided. The department regularly demonstrates successful treatment results and has an impeccable reputation in Israel and in the international medical arena. The Chief Physician of the department is Prof. Dr. med. Ido Wolf.

Cancer treatment begins with the comprehensive diagnostics and multidisciplinary consultation with the participation of all the necessary specialists. This stage of the therapeutic process aims to develop an individualized treatment plan for each patient. The department offers modern immunotherapy, which is an effective prospect in cancer treatment. Many patients participate in clinical trials, which are carried out for the development of advanced treatment methods. In particular, the Keytruda and Opdivo drugs were created on the basis of the department.

Thanks to excellent funding, the department is the only Israeli Cancer Center, which assesses the feasibility of immunotherapy to a specific patient. In addition, the department maintains special partnerships with Roche Pharmaceuticals, which carries out the FoundationOne test (a genetic sensitivity testing of patients to specific treatment methods and drugs). This examination provides the most extensive, reliable and accurate data on the genetic structure of cancer cells.

The department specializes in the diagnostics and treatment of the following cancers:

  • Breast cancer
  • Gastrointestinal cancer
  • Bone and soft tissue sarcomas
  • Lung cancer
  • Melanoma and other skin tumors
  • Urogenital cancers
  • Cancer of the female reproductive system
  • Thyroid cancer
  • Tumors of the brain and nervous system
  • Other types of cancer

To treat the above-mentioned types of cancer, the department has highly specialized sections, for example, the Section of Breast Cancer, the Section of Female Reproductive Cancers, the Section of Lung Cancer and Sarcoma, etc.
