The medical center is functioning on partnership with other clinics expanding the possibilities for curing cancer patients. In 2012, the Institute of Gustave Roussy joined forces with the Medical and Surgical Center Marie-Lannelongue - they created the Institute of Thoracic Oncology (IOT).

Features of the Clinic


Clinic accepts both children and adults with various types of cancerous diseases. For prescribing a treatment approach, specialists of several specialties are invited, among them oncologists, radiologists, radiotherapists and surgeons. This approach allows to immediately think about the possible risks and avoid them. Patients often referred are of these type of cancer:

    Breast cancer. Over 10 000 patients with breast cancer diagnosis are observed in the clinic each year, 2000 of which are new cases. Since 2004, the Institute has provided a "one-day diagnosis" service, which has already benefited 15,000 women. It involves establishing an accurate conclusion about the state of health of the person who were reffered within 24 hours.

    Brain tumor. Oncologists of the center develop a treatment plan, which is made in accordance with the personalized characteristics of the patient. The nature of the affected brain cells and their position are taken into account. This allows specialists to determine how invasive the tumor is and with what additional therapies it is worth combining the surgical intervention.

    Hematologic cancer. This clinic has a technical laboratory, where modern equipment is used for diagnostics and treatment of patients with blood diseases. The hematological department perform autologous transplantations, resort to allografts of hematopoietic stem cells. New medicines are being developed with the participation of hematologists and oncologists at the Institut of Roussy.

    Prostate cancer. Specialists of the Institute develop new methods of prostate cancer therapy. To develop therapy regimens, doctors predict the tumor response to chemotherapy and find out the resistance of cancer cells to medicines. This helps prevent metastases, as well as use of less toxic drugs.


For the cure of cancer, specialists resort to the removal of a cancerous tumor surgically. In the Institut Gustave Roussy, modern equipment is installed that allows the most effective interventions, while the surgeons do not traumatize healthy tissues.

    иконка галочкиVideo laparoscopic surgery;  

    иконка галочкиIntrahepatic radiofrequency ablation;

For the most effective treatment of cancer patients along with surgery, non-invasive options of cancer therapy are used. Cancer center Gustave Roussy use only to well-known procedures, with proven results globally. The ability to choose from several types of therapy allows them to make a personalized approach to each patient.

Treatment with hormones helps to block the natural cancer development in patients body. This prevents the stimulation of tumor and stops its growth.


In this option, wide range of drugs are used, the action of which is directed to the destruction of cancer.

It is possible to use external radiation therapy with different types of irradiation:

иконка галочкиWith modulated intensity;  

иконка галочкиTomotherapy;

The implantation of the source of radiation in tumor itself or close to the tissue. To date, the Institute has installed 8 devices for external radiotherapy and 10 for brachytherapy.


This method promotes the active work of the body's own defense mechanisms, which, under the influence of drugs, begin to fight the affected cells. The Roussy Cancer center is one of the most promising centers for the development of immunotherapy in Europe.


Doctors of the medical center work with children. Here all types of cancer in children are treated: lymphomas, embryonic tumors, oncology of bone and soft tissues, neuroblastoma. Survival of children who have been treated in this clinic is 80%.

When carrying out a course of treatment in a child, oncologists pay special attention to the restoration of children’s normal life after previous illness. In addition, specialists provide long-term monitoring of the child's health, which allows to accurately track possible relapses and respond to them on time.
