Onco - Orthopedics – it is a science on the junction of traumatology, orthopedics and oncology. The onco-orthopedists’ field of interest are tumors and tumor-like affections of bones, joints and soft tissues of musculoskeletal system. Even though in generic structure of oncological diseases data of affection don’t exceed 3,5-4 %, but, as a rule, the people of young and middle ages get affected; on this account, this particular group of diseases is a serious social and economic problem. At the present time in the Onco – Orthopedics and bone pathology service we perform practically all types of surgeries that are applied to this type of patients. In the Service, we also carry out surgeries on elective orthopedic pathology (endoprosthesis during coxarthrosis and gonarthrosis), correcting osteomas during displacement of the big toe entoectad (hallux valgus).
Oncological Service of “Nairi” Medical Service was founded in 2013. The guideline for action of the Clinic is a surgical treatment of malignant and benign tumors, and also pre – tumorous pathology of female genital zone. As well, we carry out gynecological and reconstructive – plastic surgeries during prolapse of small pelvis organs.
The Oncology Department of Yerevan State Medical University also functions on the basis of our Clinic, where study students and residents with the major specialty “general oncology” and “oncological gynecology”.
The level of Clinic’s technical equipment and specialists’ training allows to perform an examinations and treatment of the patients in the strict accordance with the protocols and standards of NCCN (National Comprehensive Cancer Network Clinical Practice Guidelines in OncologyTM), thanks to which our patients reach the survival index, comparable with such clinics in the USA and Europe.
Special place has the minimum invasive surgery. Nairi Medical Center is the only clinic in Armenia, where the most complicated onco-gynecological laparoscopic surgeries are performed. The Clinic is equipped with the most modern endoscopic technique in corpore from Karl Storz company.
Close collaboration with the Department of Chemotherapy at Nairi Medical Center, as well as with the Oncology Department of Yerevan State Medical University, allows to carry out a full complex of anti – tumorous treatment for our patients (chemotherapy, radiotherapy).
In our clinic acts a multidisciplinary group of ESGO (European Association of Gynecologists – Oncologists) – Tumor Board.
Planning the examination and treatment of each individual case is carried out on a committee of multidisciplinary group with involvement of highly-skilled specialist (chemotherapist, radiologist, pathologist, anesthesiologist – rheumatologist, as well as, the representatives of adjoint professions). At the same time, our principle is the strictly individual approach to each particular patient, taking into consideration the entire variety of factors that characterize the disease as well as the organism in general. The treatment plan has to be discussed in details with the patient, and all diagnostic and treatment procedures must be performed only on her informed agreement.
In our Clinic we perform a full spectrum of radical oncological, gynecological and urogynecological surgeries, as well as surgeries on mammary gland. The majority of radical oncological surgeries are unique for Armenia, and some of them – for the region. Some these surgeries are available on YouTube channel of Nairi MC.
Service of Chemotherapy at Nairi MC has been working since 2012. It was founded by French – Armenian doctor Gevorg Abgaryan, who leads the Department till today. In the Department we carry out chemotherapy of malignant tumors by ultramodern methods, using exclusively European and American schemes of treatments, high – quality preparations. Our doctors underwent a professional training in Europe and possess all skills of international oncology.
Besides the main chemotherapy process, the Department of Oncology provides full diagnostics to the patients with malignant tumors, implements the processes of treatment tactic development and further control. All patients’ data are discussed on oncological multidisciplinary meetings – Tumor Boards, and more complicated cases are discussed in the format of teleconference with European partners.
Thanks to wide investment of modern treatment methods and close collaboration with foreign partners, treatment results of Chemotherapy Department are comparable with the results of the leading European clinics.
