Cancer Treatment in Israel

4 Reasons to Travel to Israel for Cancer Treatment

While you can easily find high-quality care and well-trained specialists in the US, more Americans are now seeking cancer treatment in Israel in order to receive affordable quality care.

When it comes to therapy for cancer, several factors matter: quality of care, access to advanced treatments, cost, and specialization. While you can easily find high quality care and well-trained specialists in the US, more Americans are now seeking cancer treatment in Israel in order to receive the benefits of all four of the abovementioned factors.

Cancer Treatment in Israel

The quality of Care

Israeli physicians are exceptionally well-trained and often spend even more time on their medical education than American doctors. Also, you can be assured of high standards and strict safety regulations if you choose a hospital accredited by a reliable authority.

Advanced Treatments:

Israel and the US often work hand in hand on cancer research, seeking to both understand the nature of cancer and develop new and effective treatments against it. Israel lacks many of the blockades to novel therapies found in the US. While Israeli clinical trials are still conducted under high standards of safety, these trials are generally made available to patients sooner than in the US.


American healthcare costs are enormous. If you don’t have insurance, the price of cancer treatment can be crippling. Costs are much lower in Israel, averaging 30-80% less than in the US. Yet, you’re not trading affordability for quality. Israeli specialists, medical institutions, equipment, and procedures are among the most advanced in the world.


Effective cancer treatment often depends on several different types of specialists working together. You’ll find this sort of cooperation in Israel. For example, if you’re suffering from melanoma, you may have dermatologists, oncologists, immunologists, researchers, and support staff on your treatment team, all working in concert.
