Comments Regarding Treatment

I had surgery to remove my tumor and also underwent a course of chemotherapy in my home country. I needed to proceed with radiotherapy, but the tumor was located near the spine, and was untreatable. I learned that there was a possibility to treat it with heavy ion radiotherapy and decided to take it. I had considered treatment in other countries, but the quick and excellent response from the coordinating company and competitive fees convinced me that treatment in Japan was the best option. The treatment in Japan was very practical, and I was impressed with the very high level of expertise. The staff at the hospital were very understanding, and I am extremely happy with the coordinating service.

Male patient from the Republic of Colombia / Osteosarcoma / Heavy ion radiotherapy

I had surgery in Russia, but only a small part was removed, and my symptoms had not gotten any better. I heard of a famous Japanese doctor who was visiting a Russian hospital, and I decided that I wanted to go to Japan to be treated by this doctor. I am very pleased that I was able to receive treatment that only a skilled Japanese doctor could provide. The surgeon removed the lesion to the maximum extent possible at that time. I am planning to go to Japan within the next couple of years to have the lesion removed completely.

Female patient from Russia / Brain tumor (benign) / Brain tumor resection surgery

I was planning to receive radiotherapy in China, but my physician told me that half of my face, along with my eye will need to be taken out. The day before I was due to start radiotherapy in China, by pure chance, I set my eyes on the brochure introducing carbon-ion radiotherapy. I looked it up and found that the only place in Asia that this treatment was available was in Japan and decided to go. Thanks to heavy ion radiotherapy, my face and eye is still intact. I had thought that I would need a lot of help during my two-month treatment, and asked my family and friends to accompany me to Japan. But there was no need. The Japanese hospital system was much more efficient compared to those in China, and the flow from reception to payment went very smoothly. I want to give a big thank you to my doctors, and everybody in Japan. I will definitely go back to Japan for my follow-up consultations.

I had received treatment without effect in another country, and I was told I only had three months left to live. A year has passed since I had a transcatheter arterial chemoembolization in Japan, and although I have been treated four times during the course of this year, my condition is such that I am able to go to work every day. I told my acquaintances of my experience, and some have already decided to be treated in Japan.

I was due for a tumorectomy in another country, but I was told that I would lose my hearing and my face would remain paralyzed. I was then operated on in Japan, and the result of this is that I kept my hearing and the face paralysis was only temporary, so I am naturally delighted at these results.

Comments Regarding the Doctors and Staff

In China, I saw a leading Japanese orthopedic surgeon who referred me to the hospital in Japan where I had surgery. After surgery everything was stable, so they proceeded to fit me with a prosthetic leg. It all went very smoothly. The doctors, nurses, and physical therapists provided excellent care, so I decided to continue treatment in Japan. I plan to tell my relatives and friends about the wonderful treatment available in Japan.
