Urologic oncologists are physicians who specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of urinary system tumors. The treatment of neoplasms, both benign and malignant, involves not only surgery but also specific therapies prescribed by an oncologist based on the particulars of a clinical case. The doctor assesses the patient’s medical condition, determines whether the patient is a candidate for surgery, and decides on the most effective treatment strategy. The experienced urologists and oncologists who work at the GMS surgery center are familiar with all methods of treating oncourological diseases.
According to medical statistics, approximately 4% of cancer patients suffer from urinary tract tumors. Malignant tumors often affect the bladder, prostate, kidneys and ureters; less often they appear in the urethra. Tumors develop fairly quickly, so do not postpone a visit to the doctor if you experience the following symptoms:
Since such symptoms are characteristic not only of developing tumors, but also of many other urological pathologies, only a specialist can make the correct diagnosis after a comprehensive examination of the patient. Early-stage oncological conditions respond well to treatment, unlike advanced forms, and therefore timely diagnosis is the key to successful treatment and a long, active life.
Urologic oncologists specialize in the treatment of the following pathological conditions of the urinary system:
The treatment plan is devised according to each individual patient's diagnosis, the severity and stage of the disease, the intensity of the symptoms, and the extent of the affected area. Today’s urologic oncologists have an wide range of effective methods and technologies to quickly diagnose and successfully treat urological tumors. Even if full-fledged surgical intervention cannot be performed, there are ways to destroy tumors that do not require general anesthesia or abdominal incisions, for example radio frequency ablation.
To confirm or clarify the diagnosis, a comprehensive examination is performed, including:
Thanks to our own modern laboratory, which is equipped with advanced, high-tech equipment, all diagnostic procedures can be performed within one or two days.
Consultations with an urologist-oncologist begin with the patient’s medical history. The doctor will ask about specific complaints, examine the history of the disease, and ask about the patient’s past and present diseases, allergic reactions, and lifestyle. Then he or she will examine the patient and order laboratory tests and further instrumental examinations.
After obtaining the results, the specialist will select the most effective treatment plan for the specific clinical case. Therapeutic strategies are always devised on an individual basis. The doctor will answer any questions the patient may have regarding the characteristics of the disease and treatment methods, and provide necessary recommendations about treatment, diet and medical procedures.
Urologic oncologists at GMS Hospital, together with surgeons, radiologists, chemotherapists and other specialists select the optimal treatment approach, which will include both surgical and non-surgical procedures. GMS performs the whole range of oncourological operations:
The treatment plan also includes latest generation anti-tumor drugs and radiation therapy.
Based on the results of the examinations and tests the doctor will determine a course of treatment. Since the main step in the treatment of any malignant tumor is its surgical excision, the task of the specialist is to explore the options for performing the operation, determine the extent of the intervention, and properly prepare the patient for surgery. The doctor will conduct all necessary preoperative measures and procedures and will provide medical support to the patient in the postoperative period. After the operation, the patient will remain in the hospital for some time.
The urologic oncologist will also design an optimal rehabilitation program, for both inpatient and outpatient treatment, and will decide on a course of further treatment (radiation, chemotherapy). Sign up any time for a consultation with a urologic oncologist at GMS Hospital, online or by phone.

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.

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.
I want to thank you all so much for making my stay in hospital so bearable. You are all so professional and dedicated and it was a pleasure to spend time with you all even under those unusual circumstances.
I am now home and being cared for by my family as well as my own doctor so all is as well. Hopefully I will be up and about soon.
Once again, many thanks and suffice to say, I will never forget you and your staff did for me.
Best wishes always.
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.
Our specialists will contact you
