The Cancer Patient is the Center of Attention

Proven competence in oncology

A good 100 years ago, Vincenz Czerny founded an institute for cancer research in Heidelberg, uniting cancer therapy and research under one roof. In 1964, this became the renowned German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ). Today, the University Hospital and the German Cancer Research Center cooperate closely in research and patient care at the National Center for Tumor Diseases Heidelberg, where current scientific knowledge is put into practice as quickly as possible to benefit patients. Surgical oncology as well as radio-oncology are integral parts in cancer treatment as well. Heidelberg physicians work with state of the art equipment (including robot-assisted surgery) and are highly experienced.

Comprehensive Interdisciplinary Diagnosis and Therapy

The work of our professors and physicians is based on their wellfounded knowledge and their broad, sophisticated practical experience. Diagnoses and therapy decisions are based on an interdisciplinary approach. Patients and their problems are regularly discussed in multidisciplinary tumor conferences. Current, indication-specific medical standards are applied and refined.

Our therapeutic options include

  • all surgical procedures performed using the latest techniques including robot-assisted surgery (DaVinci system)
  • chemotherapy (classic and adjuvant therapies, antibody treatments)
  • tested and highly innovative radiation therapy including latest technologies, such as proton-/carbon ion therapy
  • stem cell transplantation
  • multiple pain therapy methods
  • psycho-oncology
