Director's Blog

Dear patients, colleagues and partners!

I am glad to welcome you on the website of Rostov Research Institute of Oncology! Today our Institute is the largest cancer center in the South of Russia with excellent equipment and highly professional medical staff. Our clinic provides diagnostics and treatment in all spheres of oncology; besides, the Institute has a powerful scientific, experimental and educational base.

Medicine is developing rapidly, and we try to study and implement the best in the fight against cancer. Our main task is to make world-class medical care available for each patient regardless his or her social status, income, place of residence, nationality and religion. We believe that everyone can be helped. Every day we try to move at least one step forward in the diagnostics, treatment and our research, to improve patient care in the clinic. We have achieved a lot, but there is still something to strive for.

Director’s Blog is where I share my thoughts on medicine, on innovations in the Institute, new approaches to cancer treatment and our studies and advice on cancer prevention. My priority as a doctor is your and your loved ones’ health.

Best regards,
Oleg Kit.
