As we know, Oncological diseases are the most common problems in modern medicine. One of the main goal of our clinic is to reduce the mortality from cancer. Great importance for this is our preventive measures, to detect diseases at an early stage, by giving proper diagnosis and treatment.
Of course, there are a number of challenges facing our country's oncology services, that is why the National Center of Surgery determines the method of treatment of oncology patients by the Tumor Board (A composed group of different specialists) based on joint discussion and perspective.
At the center, except to the doctors of our clinic, the official experts of the clinic participate in determining the method of treatment-, Emory University, Head of the Department of Radiation Oncology, Professor Natia Esiashvili and leading specialist at the Multidisciplinary Institute of Oncology at Genesis Care Spain, member of the International Relations Committee of ESTRO International Radiation Oncologists, associate Professor at the University of Murcia Maia Jughashvili-Hernandez. The team of specialists was joined by the German expert Michel Laniado, who is an expert in Senior Experten Service. SES is one of the most qualified and leading organizations in Germany since 1983.
Mr. Laniado's visit to the National Center of Surgery was long planned, however, due to COVID-19, his visit was postponed. Nevertheless, the global pandemic did not prevent the partnership between the clinic and the German expert and on september 9, as soon as the opportunity was given, a video conference was held at the National Center of Surgery with the participation of the clinic's management, Radiologists, radiation and medical Oncologists.
During the video conference, nuances were discussed such as:
- The main stages of the clinic and expert relationship;
- The nuances of Professor Laniado's involvement with each Oncology patient, by selecting an individual method of treatment;
- Proven methods of treating colorectal and prostate cancer;
- Stages of post-tumor therapy;

Also, both sides had the opportunity, to share knowledge and experience with each other.

In addition, to use all the modern services in oncology.
