Cancer treatment in China

The Chinese healthcare system is hospital-centred with treatment available in public hospitals, international clinics or at private facilities that cater for expats and international patients. Although their methods differ, the quality of treatment in many public hospitals is comparable to Western standards and some public hospitals have opened international wings in state-private partnerships to provide rapid, affordable access to public healthcare with Western standards.

Private international hospitals are well represented in China's larger cities including Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou and provide access to English-speaking medical staff with Western training and high standards of healthcare, although prices and fees can be twice those at Chinese public hospitals.

Cancer treatment at Chinese hospitals is based on an integrative multidisciplinary approach that includes radiotherapy, chemotherapy, intervention and surgery. There is an emphasis on combining the latest minimally invasive targeted treatments of western medicine with Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) to achieve the best results with reduced side effects. Technologies employed include interventional therapy, Argon-Helium Knife Cryotherapy, Particle Knife, biological immunotherapy, targeted gene therapy, photodynamic therapy (PDT), green chemotherapy, radiofrequency ablation, thermal therapy, microwave ablation and Nanoknife.
