About us

Prof. Dr. med. Klaus-Dieter Schaser is an expert in spinal column surgery and tumor surgery in Dresden. Prof. Schaser and his team provide consultation, diagnostics, multimodal therapy and aftercare for patients with bone and soft tissue tumors and bone metastases.

Bone and soft tissue tumors, especially malignant ones, are relatively rare. For this reason, experience in diagnostics and therapy is generally very limited. In order to be able to treat patients with bone tumors and bone metastases effectively and in the best possible way, such patients should be treated by experts such as Prof. Schaser in specialized centers.

In these specialized centers, the patient can be provided with holistic interdisciplinary diagnostic and therapeutic concepts of spinal column surgery and tumor surgery. An interdisciplinary team creates an individual tumor-specific overall treatment concept for each patient.

An unconditional relationship of trust between Prof. Schaser, the attending physician, and the patients is the fundamental basis for such a therapy, which is usually mentally and physically strenuous and stressful. For Prof. Schaser, the realization of this relationship of trust already begins with the detailed consultation of the patient about all possible therapies based on the specific findings, always taking into account possible advantages and disadvantages as well as possible complications.

The relationship of trust continues during the treatment by accompanying the patients during the individual therapy phases of other specialties (e.g. oncology or radiotherapy) and then leads on to tumor-specific aftercare after completion of all possible therapeutic measures.
