Many of our physicians have an intensive research and academic background in cancer medicine particularly Immuno-Oncology. Our medical oncology team follows the continuously updated international guidelines for cancer therapies.
Briefly summarized, our focus is on individualized treatment concepts that are based on individual information that we retrieve from a number of diagnostic tests that give us information on surface markers, individual mutations, amplifications, translocations, (…) presented by the patient’s tumor cells. Identification of these allows us to specifically target them through a broad range of therapeutic options. One has to look at the tumor itself to understand what targeted treatments a patient can benefit from. A treatment that might work for one patient, does not necessarily work for another patient, even though they have both the same type of cancer. One needs to discuss and evaluate for a multimodal treatment concept that considers all aspects of the patient’s disease and fits to his or her medical history and general condition.
Some of our patients are happy to share their experience in public. But please bear in mind that not everyone is open to share his/her experience in public. Furthermore, please don’t misunderstand reviews as an objective and complete treatment summary. In many cases, the patients use reviews or testimonials to express their gratitude to our team, as we have supported them in a very difficult situation, regardless of their treatment response. Patients naturally describe their cases in a way that would not meet objective criteria for a proper oncological evaluation, or do not reflect our oncology teams original feedback. We cannot always publish updates to the testimonials due to the medical confidentially and data protection law, and we are very much respecting the privacy of our patients, so we will not provide any further information on our own on the reviews below. So please note that the following reviews are original feedbacks from our patients that were published following our patients wishes:
