MOSCOW, February 04. /ITAR-TASS/. Chief Moscow oncologist Anatoly Makhson said Russians do not have to seek cancer treatment abroad, because the country has adequate facilities and expertise.
"We often have patients who began treatment aboard, but later returned to Russia," Makhson said at the 7th Anticancer Movement Forum on Tuesday. In his view, not all hospitals abroad can provide the level of assistance for cancer patients as Russian state-funded facilities.
Makhson added that those who leave Russia to seek cancer treatment abroad were often disappointed, expecting top quality assistance which was not available at all foreign clinics. "There are specialized cancer hospitals boasting a high level of assistance, but one can also find himself in a small hospital which might start the wrong therapy course," he went on.
He said specialized Russian clinics were not worse medical facilities abroad. "Both Russian and foreign hospitals will always have failures. Even a top hospital cannot give a 100% guarantee that the patient will be cured," the expert said.
