An Integrative approach to cancer care
At ICCA, we focus on the importance of an integrative multidisciplinary approach to cancer care. This includes providing patients with access to traditional and nontraditional therapies as well as lifestyle modifications such as diet and exercise.
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.
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.
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.
(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.
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.
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.
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.
Low Dose Radiation
Radiation treatment in which the total dose of radiation is less than that given in standard radiation therapy. In low-dose radiation therapy, the total dose may be given in few treatments and/or shorter period of time causing less damage to nearby healthy tissue. The dose is customized by our Physicist who determines the dose and path according to the patient’s needs.
Dendritic Cell Therapy
Dendritic cell therapy is a form of immunotherapy which introduces cancer cells to your dendritic cells promoting a positive immune response.
Tumor cells reprogram their metabolism to support cll growth, proliferation, and differentiation, thus driving cancer progression. Profiling of the metabolic signatures in tumors facilitates the understandings of the tumor’s metabolism and introduces potential metabolic vulnerabilities for targeted therapy.
