Tumour therapy

The St.-Antonius Hospital treats tumour patients interdisciplinarily in accordance with the guidelines. Since all relevant specialist disciplines are available on the premises, the entire treatment starting with diagnosis, through surgery and finally chemotherapy and radiotherapy can be performed “under one roof”.

Every Monday our co-operation partners

Oncologists
Radiotherapists
Visceral surgeons
Gastroenterologists
Radiologists and
Pathologists

attend the interdisciplinary tumour conference in order to discuss the best therapy for each individual patient. Practice-based physicians also come regularly to introduce their patients. As a result, the integration of in-patient and out-patient treatment becomes even better.
