Why choose Sheba for PIPAC in Israel?
PIPAC is delivered at the Department of Surgical Oncology (Surgery C) at Sheba, which features a team of highly qualified specialists. Our physicians have extensive experience in treating peritoneal cancer, and we are responsible for bringing the cutting-edge PIPAC treatment to Israel. Prof. Aviram Nissan, Director of our Department of General and Oncology Surgery, and Dr. Almog Ben Yaakov, expert in oncology surgery, learned how to implement this treatment in Paris with the world-leading doctors who invented and developed the PIPAC technology.
Sheba, the most comprehensive hospital in the region, is steadfastly committed to treating patients with the most progressive, advanced therapies. At this point, our doctors have performed PIPAC successfully for many patients who qualified for the progressive procedure. As a result, the tumors stopped progressing, and the patients experienced a substantial improvement in their quality of life.
PIPAC at Sheba is affordable. We provide top value at a cost that is lower than the prices for cancer treatment at other leading hospitals. As a government institution, our fees are transparent and highly affordable – with no compromises on the quality of your medical care.
Navigating your way through medical treatments can be confusing. That’s why we assign a personal coordinator from our International Medical Tourism Division to every patient. Your coordinator provides full assistance – from helping with travel arrangements to providing explanations in your language. You will benefit from clear communication and an efficient healthcare experience.
