Successful breast cancer surgery in Israel : A patient’s story and thank you letter

Post-surgery breast reconstruction and hormonal treatment in Israel

As told by Lyubov, iMER coordinator

It is said that to be in the right place at the right time is a gift. In some cases it is a life-saving gift, especially regarding breast cancer: the sooner the patient contacts a skilled doctor, the better are her chances for successful surgery to remove the cancerous tissue.

I would like to tell about one of my patients who came here from Nizhny Novgorod. Together with the iMER medical team I created a treatment plan for her and prepared all the necessary documentation for her breast cancer excision and subsequent plastic surgery to reconstruct the breast. The patient accepted the plan immediately and arrived to the Hadassah MC – the right place at the right time! She had been helped not only by us, the iMER staff, but also by our former patients from Nizhny Novgorod: who at just the right time met Lyudmila and referred her to us. We handed her care over to the reliable, miracle-working Dr Carmon.

Diagnostic testing was completed quickly and confirmed indications for the surgery. The surgery was successful; moreover, further testing revealed that the tumor was hormone receptor-positive, and the doctors were able to prescribe hormonal treatment for Lyudmila’s cancer, which is much easier for the body to tolerate compared to chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Following the advice of her friends from Nizhny Novgorod the patient chose Dr Neta Adler to do simultaneous breast reconstruction surgery.
