At present, children and patients with chronic kidney failure are not candidates for PRRT, because there is insufficient data on its use for these conditions.
Why choose Sheba for PRRT in Israel?
The staff of Sheba’s Institute of Endocrinology, the department in which PRRT is delivered, comprises top specialists who have undergone training at premier medical centers around the world. In addition, as the largest hospital in the region, Sheba treats more patients with NETs, a relatively rare disease, than many other cancer centers – and more experience translates into more successful outcomes.
At Sheba, we are dedicated to custom-tailoring medicine to treat each patient’s unique condition. After assessing each case and getting to know the patient, our doctors design a treatment program that considers the individual’s needs. The administration of PRRT, a targeted therapy, is in perfect alignment with our personalized approach to healthcare in general and cancer therapy specifically.
The price of PRRT in Israel is significantly lower than it is in the United States, with no need to compromise on the quality of your medical care. As a government institution, our costs are fully transparent. The price for PRRT is all-inclusive, with no additional fees for associated health services (such as amino acids to protect the kidneys).
To create an efficient and reassuring experience for every patient, a personal coordinator from the International Medical Tourism Division is assigned to assist throughout the entire treatment process at Sheba. From travel arrangements to language translations to follow-up care, constant assistance is provided. Also, if we have all the relevant scans and blood tests ready, PRRT can be coordinated and delivered on the same day of your arrival at Sheba.
