Georgian Medical Tourism

The National Center of Surgery was founded in 1946 on the foundation of Georgia's Scientific-Research Institute of Experimental and Clinical Surgery. It is a multifunctional medical center with a long history that welcomes and treats patients from all over the world. Foreign patients can receive the following medical services from the National Center of Surgery:

Department of Radiotherapy

radioterapia samedicino turizmi eng

The following organs are treated using modern technology in the Radiation Department:

  • Brain;
  • Head and neck;
  • Lung;
  • Chest;
  • Gastrointestinal tract;
  • Urogenital system;
  • Bones.

Truebeam and Vitalbeam, the most advanced and sophisticated beam accelerators from the well-known American Company Varian, are installed in the department. Varian radiation accelerators allow patients who would not otherwise be able to receive radiation therapy to have continuous treatment. Our department's personnel selects radiation treatment strategies individually, taking into account the most recent suggestions. Following CT imaging-based planning, the target and risk organs are contoured, as well as the radiation dose and the number of fractions. If necessary, the DIBH approach is used for scheduling (synchronized irradiation with respiration). A team of expert physicists is directed by cutting-edge planning approaches like 3D, iMRT, and VMAT (RapidArc). The group determines the treatment plan such that the target volume receives the highest dose prescribed by the physician while protecting vital organs and minimizing the risk of problems. The daily treatment method is carried out under the supervision of IGRT (image-guided radiotherapy treatment), which ensures that the treatment plan is carried out precisely. Each patient's planning is conducted with the utmost care and adherence to all safety precautions.

In addition, the patients at our center can receive HDR brachytherapy treatment. Brachytherapy is a high-tech method that involves injecting a radioactive chemical into the tumor location for an extended period. This strategy allows us to irradiate the target volume with a crushing dose while sparing as many healthy tissues as possible around the tumor.

 The Stroke Center

isnultis centri samedicino turizmi

The patients from the Stroke Center are managed in the National Center of Surgery according to American (USA) and European (EU) standards! Several hundred people have survived death or severe handicap since its inception. This was accomplished with the assistance of competent people, contemporary technology, and medical equipment, including the most recent Japanese double-arm angiography and current OMRON equipment. Stroke is classified into two types: ischemic and hemorrhagic.

The ischemic form is caused by thrombosis, cerebrovascular embolism, spasm, and/or a significant decrease in blood flow induced by atherosclerotic plaque, which is followed by the cessation of blood supply to the relevant area of brain tissue.

The hemorrhagic form is characterized by a bleeding that occurs in the brain. It usually occurs when the blood pressure rises, causing one of the blood artery walls to be damaged and blood to be pumped into the brain material. This is followed by the manifestation of clinical indications specific to the affected area of the brain.

hemodializi eng midical tourism

The Department of Nephrology, Transplantation, and Hemodialysis treats both international patients who are part of the state dialysis program and dialysis-dependent foreign patients who come in regularly. Every day, three shifts of hemodialysis are performed. Dialysis is the process of cleaning the blood with the use of a semiconductor membrane. Dialysis is used to artificially eliminate metabolic products and fluids from the body when the kidneys are unable to operate correctly. The treatment is used to treat both acute and chronic renal insufficiency. It lasts about 4 hours on average and is absolutely painless.

In the Department of Critical Care Medicine and Emergency Care, conditions for emergency hemodialysis are also available. This service is unique to Tbilisi and is offered 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
