The Visceral Oncology Center fulfills the quality criteria set by the German Cancer Society and has been awarded the distinction "Visceral Oncology Center with Recommendation of the German Cancer Society e.V.". In addition, the Visceral Oncology Center has a certified quality management system according to DIN EN ISO 9001.
For all patients of the Visceral Oncology Center, an individual treatment plan is created, which is coordinated within the departments of surgery (surgical treatment), gastroenterology, oncology (drug treatment), radiotherapy, radiology, nuclear medicine and pathology according to the latest findings and research results.
Every patient suffering from cancer is discussed by the above-mentioned disciplines in the tumor conference of the Visceral Oncology Center, which takes place three times a week, and an individually coordinated, interdisciplinary therapy proposal is drawn up for the patient. For many patients, complete surgical removal of the tumors can now be achieved, often using a minimally invasive, sometimes robot-assisted surgical technique and the associated faster recovery.
Outpatient care and aftercare of patients is provided closely via specialized consultation hours for the individual diseases at the National Center for Tumor Diseases Dresden (NCT/UCC), the Clinic and Polyclinic for Visceral, Thoracic and Vascular Surgery (VTG) and the Medical Clinic 1 (MK1).
