Ladies and gentlemen!
I am glad to welcome you to the website of one of the world's oldest cancer institutes.
Our Institute was founded on February 12, 1898. During its existence the domestic oncology has taken the leading position in the world, making an invaluable contribution to basic medical science. Specialized diagnostic and treatment methods have become available to the public, largely due to the outstanding professionals forming science of oncology within the Institute’s walls, and to technological advances in medicine. Scientific research in the Institute is focused on the development of the diagnosis and treatment of malignant tumors in the experimental studies and the organization of cancer control.
Our Institute is a recognized leader in providing high-tech medical care to patients with various types of cancer.

The high professional level of the entire medical staff of the Institute helped to bring many thousands of people back to normal life. The Institute performs a unique surgery, uses modern high-tech methods of diagnostics, comprehensive treatment and rehabilitation of patients. In my life, I used to rely on a simple and true principle: “Walk and ye shall reach”.
I wish all of you, first of all, to remember that the cancer is not a sentence; an early and timely made diagnosis will allow you to maintain health for many years, the health of yourself and your family!
