The Visceral Oncology Center fulfills the quality criteria set by the German Cancer Society (DKG) and is a DKG-recommended visceral oncology center. In addition, the Visceral Oncology Center has a certified quality management system that meets DIN EN ISO 9001.
An individual treatment plan is created for all patients of the Visceral Oncology Center, which is coordinated between the surgery (surgical treatment), gastroenterology, oncology (drug treatment), radiotherapy, radiology, nuclear medicine and pathology departments according to the latest findings and research results.
Every cancer patient hase their case discussed by the above-mentioned specialist disciplines in the tumor board of the Visceral Oncology Center, which meets three times a week, and draws up an individually coordinated, interdisciplinary therapy proposal for the patient. For many patients, complete surgical removal of the tumors can now be achieved, often using minimally invasive, sometimes robot-assisted surgical techniques, which are associated with faster recovery.
Close outpatient care and aftercare is provided via specialized consultation hours for the individual diseases at NCT/UCC Dresden, the Clinic and Polyclinic for Visceral, Thoracic and Vascular Surgery (VTG) and Medical Clinic 1 (MK1).
