Center of Hematology and oncology

The Hematology and Oncology Center at the Solingen City Hospital at the University of Cologne specializes in the treatment of complex oncological diseases and hematology diseases in all areas. The oncology department was specially created by a separate Patient Center, where the best German doctors and professors with extensive experience and innovative knowledge in the treatment of breast cancer, pancreatic and stomach cancer, tumors of the spinal cord and brain, and many others were gathered.

The concept of "oncological disease" is an extensive class of diseases affecting all organs and systems in the human body. Today, “cancer” is perceived as one of the most negative diagnoses and sounds like a sentence for the patient. The academic clinic Solingen at the University of Cologne with a team of oncologists work every day and strive to dispel this myth. Every day, hundreds of patients undergo consultations, diagnostics and treatment, both surgical and radiosurgical and medical.

In the clinic, patients receive new hope and confidence in their health, receive personal care and support from professionals in their field.

The Oncology Center continuously conducts scientific and clinical research to confirm existing methods of treatment and search for new ones for patients suffering from oncological diseases.
