Throat and Neck Tumour Centre

Two specialised regional centres have been established by the Medical University of Cologne, based at the Solingen Hospital:

Throat and Neck Tumour Centre
Centre for Brain Tumours

These centres bring together leading otorhinolaryngologists, neurosurgeons and oncologists from Germany to share their experience and engage in practical and scientific work.

The Throat and Neck Tumour Centre brings together the best specialists from otolaryngologists, oncologists, radiologists and radiation therapists in Germany. As a result, patients with all Throat and Neck diseases at the Solingen Clinic have the unique opportunity to receive a full range of services, from examinations to chemotherapy and radiation therapy.

At the Throat and Neck Tumour Centre, special attention is paid to the surgical treatment of tumours of all organs of the nasopharynx. Repeatedly our specialists have successfully operated on patients who were rejected by other doctors who thought that the tumour was inoperable.

Surgeries are performed both by otolaryngologists independently and with the support of doctors from the Clinic of Neurosurgery. Every day the professor and his colleagues successfully diagnose and perform the most complex surgical operations of the highest class in patients with oncological diseases. The outstanding professionalism of the specialists and the state-of-the-art equipment of the department are confirmed by positive feedback from patients and a high recovery rate.

Treatment in the Throat and Neck oncology and tumour surgery:

  • Tongue cancer;
  • thyroid cancer;
  • cancer of the larynx;
  • salivary gland cancer;
  • cavity cancer in the oral cavity and neck

At the Academic Hospital Solingen you can quickly get a second opinion on the diagnosis and treatment of ENT diseases, as the doctors at the hospital have extensive experience in treating them.

More than 2,000 patients with complex cases are treated and rehabilitated each year at the otorhinolaryngology and onco-lor centre of the University Hospital Solingen.
