Multidisciplinary Combined Therapy

Integrative Cancer Centers of America

Here at ICCA’s facility we provide advanced and international leading methods and technologies in treating cancer. Our goal is to eliminate our patients pain, reducing side effects of cancer treatment, improving the quality of their life, and getting a better curative effect.

Specialists of ICCA believe that one single therapy cannot be suitable for every patient.

ICCA's treatment programs, especially for those patients of middle or advanced stages, will use the integrative multidisciplinary approaches. You will be exposed to multidisciplinary system, which includes imaging, radiation, chemotherapy, intervention, and surgery.

List of Technologies:

  • Cryotherapy –
    Also known as "Argon-Helium Knife". Cryotherapy is replacement for traditional surgery. An "extreme cold + extreme heat" cancer treatment. A minimum of 10-15 minutes is required to achieve pain relieving effect, while lowering the temperature to the injured area, thus reducing the metabolic rate and swelling associated with tissue injury.
  • Particle Knife --
    An alternative traditional radiation therapy. With the help of computer treatment planning system (TPS), radioactive particles can be implanted into tumors. The particles release x-rays which continuously destroy targeted tumor cells. The radiation amount aggregates enough to destroy the DNA double strands of tumor cells.
  • Biological Immunotherapy –
    Using the body's immune system to fight cancer. The cells, antibodies, and organs of the immune system work to protect and defend the body against foreign invaders, such as bacteria or viruses. ICCA physicians direct the immune system to distinguish healthy cells from cancer cells, thus only eliminating cancer cells.
  • Radiofrequency Ablation –
    (RFA) involves applying heat to certain nerve pathways to "shut off" the transmission of pain signals to the brain. It is performed on an outpatient basis and requires only local anesthetic and mild sedation, alleviating the possible complications of open surgery and general anesthesia. Having a high success rate and low complication rate.
  • High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound Therapy-
    (HIFU) A procedure in which high-energy sound waves are aimed directly to the area of abnormal cells or tissue in the body. The waves create heat which destroys cancer cells.
  • PET/CT –
    Positron emission tomography, also called PET imaging or a PET scan, is a nuclear medicine imaging. PET scan measures important body functions, such as blood flow, oxygen use, and sugar (glucose) metabolism to help physician evaluate how well organs and tissues are functioning.
  • Microwave Ablation –
    A probe is inserted into the tumor, wherein electromagnetic waves begin destroying/ablating cancerous tissues. Microwave ablation's targeted approach does not affect normal tissues.
  • Nanoknife –
    Nano knife is a cutting-edge ablation technology for tumor treatment. It breaks the membrane of the tumor cells with high voltage pulses from electrode probes, resulting in multiple irreversible Nano-meter electro operated holes, which is applicable to pancreatic cancer, liver cancer and other solid tumor treatments.
  • 3D Printing Template Assisted Seed Implantation –
    125l seed implantation cancer treatment, also called inside radiation. The principle is to precisely locate the placements of the seeds with a CT guidance and B ultrasound. Inject the seeds into the tumor, while guided by ultrasound imagining.
