Cryotherapy: compared with surgery, cryotherapy is associated with lower risks and less complications. little bleeding and quick recovery; few damage to normal tissues and can be performed repeatedly to prevent recurrence of endometrial cancer.
Interventional therapy: with a 1-2 millimeter incision, anti-cancer drugs are directly given to the tumor, causing fewer side effects and drug concentration is 2-8 times higher than systemic chemotherapy, killing cancer cells more accurately.
TCM & Western Medicine: Combination of traditional Chinese medicine and minimally invasive techniques can not only kill the cancer cells effectively, but also reduce toxic side effects, lower the rate of cancer recurrence, and greatly improve survival rate.
Natural therapy: No harm, no pain and no hospitalization. Natural therapy can not only reduce the toxic side effects causing by radiation and chemotherapy but also improve the living quality of endometrial cancer patients and it is applicable to all cancer patients.
