The MIBS Proton Therapy Center provides the most advanced radiation treatment of cancer today with the help of heavy positively charged particles - protons. The diagnostic service uses high-tech instrumental methods to identify pathologies and control the disease in the process of treatment and according to the outcomes.

An individual treatment plan for each MIBS patient is developed by a multidisciplinary team, which includes highly qualified doctors of various specialties: oncologists, radiotherapists, neurosurgeons, surgeons, chemotherapists, anesthetists.

Leading MIBS specialists have undergone training and internships in the best oncology clinics in Europe, the USA and Japan. Among our doctors are full members of professional communities: The International Stereotactic Radiosurgery Society (ISRS), the European Society for Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery (ESSFN), the European Society of Radiology (ESR), the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO), the Leksell Gamma Knife® Society (LGKS).

DIAGNOSTICS

MIBS has all types of instrumental diagnostics (PET/CT, MRI, CT, ultrasound), including not only the best equipment, but also advanced software. The capabilities of the diagnostic service enable our doctors to create a virtual 3-D model of the tumor site, its surrounding tissues and critical structures, which helps to choose the most effective tactics for complex surgeries and radiation treatment.

If cancer is suspected, MIBS patients undergo imaging-guided biopsy (MRI, CT, ultrasound), including fusion biopsy, which is increasingly used in modern medicine. The collected sample is sent to MIBS-owned lab, where histological and immunohistochemical studies of a tissue sample are performed in a short time period and the diagnosis is verified as accurately as possible.

Onco Check-up programs, specially designed for men, women, as well as for patients at high risk for cancer, focus on identifying the most common types of cancer. The examination is carried out in 1-2 days.

TREATMENT

The MIBS Oncology Clinic has been specializing in the comprehensive treatment of almost all known cancers for more than ten years.

The Surgical Department of the Clinic is housed in a modern surgery unit along with the Departments of Anesthesiology, Emergency and Intensive Care. MIBS surgeons perform procedures both in the traditional (open) way and using laparoscopic instruments.

The Chemotherapy Department provides all types of drug treatment used in leading cancer centers in the world (advanced chemotherapy, hormone therapy, immunotherapy).

The Conformal Radiotherapy Department is equipped with two linear accelerators by Varian Medical Systems, which have unrivaled accuracy in beam shaping and unique control of the patient's body position during irradiation.

The Center for Radiosurgery and Stereotactic Radiotherapy employs a Gamma Knife, Cyber Knife, and the TrueBeam Stereotactic Radiosurgical Linear Accelerator. Having several radiosurgical machines in MIBS range of equipment, the doctors can choose a tool, based solely on its clinical relevance.

The cutting-edge radiation treatment of cancer tumors is carried out in two treatment rooms of the MIBS Proton Therapy Center on the Varian ProBeam system. High accuracy in the destruction of cancer cells is achieved by the most advanced technology for delivering a dose of radiation to the target - the so-called “pencil beam scanning”. Proton therapy, due to its sparing of healthy tissues surrounding the target, is considered the best method of radiation treatment of tumors adjacent to vital organs. Due to minimal side effects, including secondary cancers, it is recommended for the treatment of cancer in children.
