Cancer Treatment in Israel at Sheba’s Cancer Center

About The Cancer Center

The Cancer Center at Sheba Medical Center is not only part of the largest hospital in Israel but is the absolute leader in cancer treatment in Israel.

We take a truly comprehensive approach in our fight against cancer, putting our patients first and providing for not only their medical requirements, but for their psychological, social, and palliative needs with our many support services.

Cancer Center

Our 360 Degree Approach

Our guiding principles encompass total care for each and every one of our patients. This means that we provide only expert, professional, and compassionate treatment for our patients and their families. Our Tal Center for Integrative Medicine reflects this commitment as the first facility in the country to offer a truly holistic approach to cancer treatment in Israel. While all of our therapies are rooted in scientifically verified facts, we have made available complementary treatments in addition to the latest, cutting-edge Western medicine. These complementary treatments include physiotherapy, support from nutritionists, as well as professional and caring nursing staff. Psychological services are also provided as we understand that state of mind and mental health has a profound impact on physical health. For our patients, cancer is not a sentence or fate. We firmly believe that, with integrative medicine combining the latest in technology and medical research with compassion and experience, our patients can combat even the most serious diagnosis and enjoy a good quality of life. Other important aspects of our philosophy of cancer treatment include:

Multifaceted Therapy

Research has shown that oftentimes a single treatment type does not give as good an outcome as multiple forms of therapy. Our use of combined therapeutic techniques has been recognized for excellent results with a low number of side effects.

Personalized And Precise Therapy

Each patient is unique and everyone has a different situation. We take into account every factor of your case, including your age, genetic makeup, cancer type and location, disease progression, family history, current state of health, and past medical history.

Constant Research And Improvement

At Sheba Medical Center, we do not rest on our laurels. We are absolutely dedicated to continued research in the quest to improve current therapies and discover new ones.

Compassion And Kindness

We recognize and understand that having a cancer diagnosis is an incredibly difficult situation, not only for our patients but for their loved ones as well. We are devoted to delivering the highest standards of care in a compassionate environment and to providing for the needs of both our patients and their families. Our interactions with our patients will always be professional, polite, and caring.

Staff

Our stellar staff is a critical facet of our total commitment to our patients. All of our physicians are experts in their field and have specialized training and experience in treating specific cancer types. We are proud to have many of the most experienced doctors and surgeons in Israel, and we always take a multidisciplinary approach to patient care. Teamwork and collaboration are crucial as we make accurate diagnoses and form personalized treatment plans consisting of immunotherapy, surgery, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy.
