The surgical oncologist specializes in the operative treatment of patients with various types of cancer, including diagnostics and postoperative rehabilitation. When tumors are detected at an early stage, the likelihood increases that through surgery, radiation and chemical therapy, and alternative methods, the disease can be completely cured. At GMS Hospital we have a team of experienced surgeons who are familiar with the latest treatment approaches for oncological diseases of various bodily organs and systems.
Tumors of any type need timely and appropriate medical treatment. They can appear in many different forms, actively resist therapy, and metastasize quickly. In most cases, patients are seen by a surgical oncologist upon referral by other medical specialists. But if any of the following symptoms appear, you should contact a surgical oncologist yourself:
You should regularly visit a surgical oncologist if:
What makes cancer a very tricky disease is that the initial stages are asymptomatic. Therefore, you should listen to your own body and, if any disturbing symptoms arise, contact your doctor immediately. Sign up at any time for a consultation with an oncology surgeon at GMS Hospital, online or by phone.
There are approximately one hundred different types of cancer, and several types of cancer can simultaneously affect one organ. The surgical oncologist is responsible for the diagnosis and surgical treatment of the following types of malignant tumors:
All types of oncological operations are carried out at the GMS Hospital surgery center - organ-saving, radical, and palliative. Our experienced surgeons successfully treat cancers of the gastrointestinal tract, mammary glands, pelvic organs, skin, thyroid glands, and other organs. Our doctors are not limited to their own narrow fields of specialization; all of our oncological surgeons have extensive knowledge of radiation therapy and chemotherapy, and they integrate these technologies in the comprehensive treatment of the patient.
In the battle with cancer, early detection of the pathology and high-quality, reliable diagnostics are essential. To make an accurate diagnosis, the oncological surgeon may prescribe the following tests and exams:
The diagnosis of tumor pathologies at GMS surgery center is highly accurate, thanks to our modern, expert-class diagnostic equipment. Our specialists have amassed a great deal of practical experience in the diagnosis of cancer pathologies of different stages and localization. An accurate diagnosis allows us to select the most effective treatment regimen and achieve the best clinical outcome.
A consultation with an oncological surgeon begins with patient’s medical history and analysis of all medical documentation (patient’s medical chart, medical examinations, etc.). The doctor will listen to the patient’s complaints and ask a series of clarifying questions to get the clearest overall picture. A physical examination is performed, after which the doctor will prescribe a number of lab tests and instrumental examinations, the results of which will determine the optimal treatment.
If the purpose of the consultation is analysis of an existing treatment regimen, the doctor can make adjustments to the patient’s therapeutic program, or develop a new regimen in accordance with the latest test results. The oncological surgeon will also determine whether the patient should be hospitalized or should undergo outpatient treatment.
The oncological surgeons at GMS Hospital perform the entire range of operations to remove tumors, using a wide range of modern technologies:
The priority of our oncological surgeons is not only the complete excision of tumors and growths, but also the preservation of the highest quality of life for the patient, as well as his or her full rehabilitation. Therefore, priority is given to organ-saving technologies whenever possible. The treatment plan is developed individually, according to the particulars of the patient’s clinical case, in close cooperation with doctors from other fields of medicine.
Based on the results of a comprehensive set of lab tests and exams, the oncological surgeon will determine the further steps in the patient’s treatment. The therapeutic regimen is selected depending on the type and stage of the cancer, its prevalence, the presence of other pathologies, and other factors. In most cases, oncological operations are performed as elective surgery. The doctor will carry out all the necessary preparatory steps, and agree with the patient on the appropriate date for the surgery and inpatient hospitalization. You can sign up for a consultation with an oncological surgeon on the website or by phone.
I am writing to you, on behalf of my wife Helen and myself, to thank all the staff of GMS clinic for the help and support you gave us during our stay in Moscow.
Since, I am ashamed that admit that I speak no Russian, I hope that you will be willing to translate this for the members of the GMS staff who do not speak English.
My own doctor seems pleased with the progress I am making. I still have a dressing on one of the wounds where the stitches may have been removed prematurely before I left the clinic but the others are fine and healing well.
Being ill and requiring surgery in another country will always be something of an ordeal, but the calm reassuring atmosphere in the GMS clinic did much to make us feel better about the experience. The administrative staff at reception was kind as well as efficient and their efforts on our behalf are something that we will never forget. We would also like to thank the cooks for the excellent food they prepared. We regret that we did not get the opportunity to meet them but we greatly appreciated their efforts and, after almost a week without normal food, I particularly enjoyed being able to choose from their extensive menu. Please forgive me for not always doing justice to the meals served but it has taken some time for my appetite to return to normal. We would also like to thank the room attendants for serving our meals so well and keeping our room so clean and tidy. Just as important for us, when so far from home, was that they always did so with a gracious smile. We looked forward to their visits and would like to thank them for being so remarkably patient when we tried to talk to them. We would also like to thank the several kind nurses who cared for me so diligently. I do not believe that I could not have enjoyed more attentive nursing anywhere else in the world and will never forget you. The several doctors who attended me at various stages also need to be thanked. I am grateful to them all but hope that they will forgive me for singling out Dr Constantin Dimitri for a particular mention. His patience, as he explained to me so well in English both what was happening to my body following the operation, and what he and the rest of the medical team were doing - and why – was particularly appreciated and helpful to me during my recovery.
Many, many thanks to you all.
Many thanks to Dr. Oleg Sergeevich Abramov, who performed a surgery and helped me cure a severe case of odontogenic sinusitis.
Dr. Abramov is extremely competent and polite, a true professional with a rare set of skills. I have already recommended him to a colleague of mine and will recommend again.

Greetings from South Africa,
This is a follow up to our recent stay at GMS where my wife Merle Step had a complete Hip replacement by you recently.
She stood up to the return trip to South Africa very well and is able move around with the aid of a walker without difficulty. I took her to our local General Practitioner on Friday, with all your reports and X-Ray plates. He commented that he was very happy with the excellent procedures that you carried out and felt that she was in excellent professional hands while at GMS. He has referred her to an orthopedic surgeon for a final checkup and stitch removal. Also she is to go to Physo for further manipulation.
From both of us we cannot express our gratitude enough for the professional service, helpful administrative as well as nursing staff that attended to our needs while at GMS. We will always look back and always remember the Russian people for their friendly assistance to two complete strangers from another part of the world. In turn Russia will always be in our hearts and we will be good Ambassadors for your great country and federation.
Please pass on our greetings and thanks to a few that I remember by names, if I have left anyone out I apologies.
