About us

The Oncology Center of the St. Vincentius Hospitals, Karlsruhe, certified by the German Cancer Society (DKG), currently comprises five differently oriented organ cancer centers, which focus on malignant conditions of the intestines, the breast, the female genitalia, the lungs and the head and neck region. The collaboration of experienced specialists in numerous fields in the Oncology Center is an essential requirement for successful cancer treatment. In the weekly tumor conference, the interdisciplinary team of specialized surgeons, pathologists, radiologists, specialists in nuclear medicine, hematooncologists and radiotherapists develops an individual treatment plan together for each patient. This is the foundation for the further treatment. Psychooncology support for the patients, social counseling, rehabilitation planning and follow-up care support and augment the oncology therapy.
