Bui Ba Hien

In July 2016, Bui Ba Hien from Vietnam was diagnosed with Gastric Cancer, recommended to have surgery by local doctors but refused to it and searched for better treatments instead.

On the same month when he was diagnosed, Bui was admitted in St. Stamford Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou. Multidisciplinary team (MDT) tailored a minimally invasive treatment program which used interventional therapy as the main treatment. After interventional therapy, his tumor marker has dropped significantly from 3954 u/ml to 78 u/ml. In order to treat cancer completely, Bui agreed also to undergo gastrectomy though he was skeptical about the risks of complications, the success of the surgery and the possibilities of living the same normal life.

The time came in Sept. 11, 2016, Bui Ba Hien thankfully survived the surgery. Tumor entirely removed. Although his weight decreased, he got improvement after a month of complete rest.

Early Nov. 2016, we paid Bui Ba Hien a visit. Though he looked thin after surgery, he was vigorous. He was busy then preparing his seafood meal which was really tasty. He stewed the food until it became tender enough to eat. Since his stomach was removed, he depended on the intestine to digest the food. Moreover, he eats in an hourly basis due to his condition. It may not be an easy experience though but for Bui Ba Hien, he still feels he is more than lucky. He said, “Compared with cancer that threatens life at any time, it is easier.” At present, he is cancer-free.

Bui Ba Hien and interpreter

During treatment, he was so upset on the threats the disease may bring. He is just 34 years old. With a beautiful wife, 2 adorable children and parents, he has too much responsibilities and love that cannot be abandoned, and so he must struggle to live. Ending all treatments come with the great hope that he can fully restore his health, continue to work and take all responsibilities as a son, a husband, and a father. Fortunately, through interventional therapy and surgery, he is in better condition now. There is a hope!

How We Treat Cancer?

Interventional Therapy

Interventional Therapy is a new substitute of traditional chemotherapy, which means that a physician introduces instruments such as needles or catheters (long, thin tubes) into the body through tiny(1-2 mm) incisions in the skin. The instruments are then guided by an imaging technique called fluoroscopy to the cancer tumor. In this way, the physician can deliver cancer medicine directly to the tumor.more info

Cryotherapy Therapy

Cryotherapy Therapy, also known as “Argon-Helium Knife Cryotherapy”, is a new substitute of traditional physical therapy. Practically speaking it is “extreme cold + extreme heat” cancer treatment. Generally, a minimum of 10-15 minutes is required to achieve an extreme analgesic (pain relieving) effect while lowering the temperature to the injured area, thus reducing the metabolic rate and swelling associated with tissue injury.more info

Particle Knife

Particle Knife is a new substitute of traditional radiation therapy. With the help of computer Treatment Planning System (TPS), radioactive particles will be implanted into tumors. The particles which release γ-rays can continuously kill tumor and cause destruction targeting tumor cells. With time, the radiation amount would accumulate to be large enough to destroy the DNA double strands of tumor cells.more info
