The Cancer Clinic is a structural unit of the Cancer Research Institute.

The Clinic provides multidisciplinary care and high-tech cancer treatment for patients living in Siberia and Russian Far East. It is a 270 bedded hospital with state of the art facilities for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. Annually, 7 000 patients receive cutting-edge therapies and image-guided interventions.

Clinical Departments:

  • Anesthesiology and Intensive Care
  • Chemotherapy
  • Diagnostic Imaging
  • Radiation Therapy
  • Nuclear Medicine
  • Endoscopy
  • General and Molecular Pathology
  • Clinical Laboratory
  • Immunological Laboratory
  • Outpatient Diagnostic Center

Surgical Units:

  • Head & Neck Cancer Unit
  • Breast Cancer Unit
  • Bone and Soft Tissue Cancer Unit
  • Urologic Cancer Unit
  • Gastrointestinal Cancer Unit
  • Thoracic Cancer Unit
  • Gynecological Cancer Unit

The Clinic has a Day Care Department with 10 patient beds, where more than 1,000 patients per year, mainly residents of the city of Tomsk and the nearest settlements stay in a hospital bed under medical supervision for a period of several hours due to treatment or examination.

The Clinic has an Outpatient Department for consultative and hospital admissions, where patients are examined and selected for receiving specialized, including high-tech cancer treatment. The patients may attend the outpatient department for follow-up treatment.

The Diagnostic Center provides a coordinated diagnostic process to confirm or rule out the diagnosis of cancer, and to determine the stage and treatment options, if cancer is confirmed. Medical consultations are available with the leading specialists and oncologists, who have a specific experience in a given field of cancer

For more than 20 years, Tomsk Cancer Research Institute has been participating in the state program for the provision of high-tech care in the oncology profile. Its list includes rare types of radiation therapy (neutron therapy, intraoperative electronic therapy, systemic radiotherapy with strontium) used in the treatment of radioresistant malignant neoplasms.

Development of new surgical techniques:

  • Reconstructive plastic surgery with the use of materials based on bioceramics and titanium nickelide
  • Organ-sparing, function-sparing surgery
  • Endoscopic surgery
  • Sentinel lymph node navigation surgery

In recent years, technologic advances in genomics have improved our understanding of tumor biology, which provides a foundation for novel therapeutic approaches. We offer personalized cancer treatment for our patients with the use of targeted cancer therapies. Our goal is to transform cancer therapy by using advanced technological tools to predict who will respond to a specific treatment, and to match each patient with the best drug for a particular tumor.

The Cancer Clinic is actively involved in scientific exchanges with Tomsk Universities. Jointly with the National Research Tomsk Polytechnic University, research is being carried out to develop innovative radiopharmaceuticals and original implants for reconstructive surgery. The modern methods of intraoperative electron beam and neutron therapy are being developed and improved.

In collaboration with the educational and scientific innovative complex of enterprises of Tomsk State University of Control Systems and Radio Electronics, a complex of local hyperthermia "Phoenix-2" was developed and certified. The use of the complex allows the doctors not only to perform thermal ablation of tumors, but also to prevent tumor chemoresistance.

Supervising the work of oncological institutions in Siberia and the Russian Far East in organizational, methodological, advisory and scientific-training areas, the Research Cancer Institute actively uses the clinical base for conducting thematic conferences, training seminars and master classes with the invitation of leading Russian and foreign experts.
