Healthcare facilities in the Czech Republic can be included in both the top Czech and world centers of comprehensive oncology treatment as they offer all the state-of -the-art diagnostic services and treatment procedures including surgery, chemotherapy, biological treatment as well as the equipment for performing non-invasive radiotherapy interventions, such as CyberKnife or proton particle accelerator. The centers in the Czech Republic achieve the highest possible standard not only due to their equipment, but, above all, owing to highly qualifi ed specialists with longstanding international experience.
All the centers in the Czech Republic comply with the most stringent quality standards as well as requirements arising from the country’s membership in the European Union, nevertheless, the highest standard of treatment is always certifi ed by the Joint Accreditation Committee of the Czech Republic. In addition, some healthcare facilities are prepared to admit foreign patients who are provided with the highest available standard of both medical and other accompanying services.
A basic presumption for successful oncology treatment is early and precise diagnostics, followed by comprehensively coordinated, individually selected methods and treatment procedures. It is for this exact reason that preventive programs, examinations as well as interdisciplinary cooperation and interdisciplinary approach to the treatment of every patient are of great signifi cance in oncology.
