SAIDAH

With support from her family, SAIDAH regained  confidence to fight with cancer, In Indonesia, she took resection but the pain wasn’t relieved at all. What’s worse, she suffered more serious condition with nipple bleeding. Later in Malaysian hospital, she was suggested take chemotherapy but she refused. As she knew well of what the side effects of systemic chemotherapy would do to the body.

By chance, SAIDAH’s husband learned about St. Stamford Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou on Google. In its Jakarta office, SAIDAH and her husband got to know that interventional therapy, which 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 cancer patients in middle or advanced stage. Besides, there’re also other advanced cancer therapies such as cryotherapy, nanoknife, etc..

On Sept. 20, 2018, SAIDAH was admitted to St. Stamford Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou. Back then the tumor measuring 12cm in her breast bothered her and the sustaining pain tortured her.

Based on her condition, the Multidisciplinary Team measured a treatment plan combining interventional therapy with cryotherapy. Up till now, she has taken 8 sessions of interventional therapy and 2 cryotherapy. After the second course, the tumor shrank by 5cm.

In retrospect, SAIDAH said, “right after the first admission, I was given cryotherapy and 10 days later I went back to Indonesia. In the following two weeks, the tumor was necrotic with pain greatly relieved and my condition backed to normal.”

“Concerning the vulnerable physical condition, patients may inevitably suffer some complications. Interventional therapy is highly-targeted to the lesion without harm to adjacent tissues. I could move freely and live as usual after the treatment. The doctors are professional experts in their fields and they never allowed any complaint of discomfort. Upon my first admission, I suffered sharp pain in my breast and the doctor dealt with it promptly. I cherish great gratitude towards my attending doctor.” SAIDAH said with smile.

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
