Before the treatment

In Sept. 2018, SUDARMAN UPA suffered severe cough and difficulty in breathing upon the admission. CT scans showed a tumor with the size of 12.7*6.6cm.

“Honestly, I’ve never heard of interventional therapy or cryotherapy back in Indonesia, where lung cancer patient are only given systemic chemotherapy. I’m well aware of the side effects of chemotherapy, so I refused it without a second thought. Fortunately there are alternative cancer therapies provided in St. Stamford Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou and it also witnesses many successful cases of Indonesian lung cancer patient. I’d like to give it a shot.”

After the treatment

After the treatment, SUDARMAN UPA and his family were overjoyed at the result.

"After the 1st session of interventional therapy, my lung tumor has shrunk to 90% and even to 96% on the 5th session. Up till now, I’ve received seven sessions of interventional therapy and one cryotherapy. We didn’t get the latest result, but I do believe that I will get better soon. ”

Interventional therapy, an advanced version of systemic chemotherapy, performs perfusion and embolism by injecting high concentration anticancer drugs through feeding artery directly into the lesion. The whole procedure effectively and thoroughly kills the tumor. Interventional therapy offers an ideal option for lung cancer patients in middle or advanced stage, who is unable to or unwilling to receive open surgery or traditional cancer therapies such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy. It protects the normal tissues and at the same time kills cancer cells.

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
