High-Precision Therapy for Brain and Spine Tumors

The treatment of children and adults with brain and spine tumors is a special focus at Heidelberg University Hospital with the National Center for Tumor Diseases (NCT). For patients with glioblastoma, meningioma, astrocytoma, as well as very rare brain tumors, this includes comprehensive care by experienced specialists in all necessary disciplines and expert teams under one roof. 

Treatment is carried out according to current therapy standards and accounts for the newest research developments. At the NCT, individual therapy recommendations for patients with brain tumors are drawn up in expert discussions (tumor conferences), if standard therapy is not the optimal route of treatment.

The diagnostic and therapeutic spectrum includes

Neurosurgical treatment, for example computer-supported neuro-navigation, stereotactic brain surgery through the Department of Neurosurgery.
