Modern Cancer Hospital is equipped with 18 advanced minimally invasive technologies, such as interventional therapy, cryotherapy, etc., which bring hope for many cancer patients. In Cancer Hospital, we adopt a new model of “minimally invasive targeted therapy and combination of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) &western medicine” to treat cancer. Compared with traditional cancer treatments, it kills cancer cells precisely with few side effects, quick recovery and no harm to normal tissues.
Interventional therapy is a mini-invasive therapy performed under the guidance of medical imaging equipments. With a 1-2 millimeter incision, paracentesis can be performed with the lead of medical imaging equipment. Then a special tube, catheter or other sophisticated apparatus are introduced to inhibit the growth and spread of cancer cells, so as to cut off the tumor’s blood supply and reach the effect of local chemotherapy without any toxic side effects of chemotherapy. Interventional therapy not only improves drug concentration, but also reduces drug dose and side effect.
Cryotherapy, also known as “Argon-Helium Knife Cryotherapy” or cryoablation, is a new substitute of traditional physical therapy, but can remove tumor tissues just like scalpel. Cryotherapy is a kind of minimally invasive therapy which removes diseased tissues percutaneously. It is the first medical technology that adopts the guidance technology of space rocket, and it is the only high precision medical technology that has the dual effect of extreme cold and heat, and it has been approved to use in treating cancers by the America Food and Drug Administration.
Nanoknife is a brand-new cutting-edge ablation technology for tumor treatment. Derived from Irreversible Electroporation (IRE), it breaks the membrane of tumor cells with high voltage pulses from electrode probes, resulting in multiple irreversible nano-meter electroporated holes. Thus, it destroys the balance in and between tumor cells and accelerates their death.
Particle implantation (also called 125I Seed Implants) is applied to a variety of primary and metastatic tumors nowadays. 125I seeds are some small iodine radioactive particles that can give off short-range γ-ray to kill tumor cells continuously. Particle implantation can achieve the same internal radiation effects as surgery does. Hence, it is also called particle knife.
