About the Department of Oncology and Hematology at Max Grundig Clinic Buehl

The Department of Oncology and Hematology at the Max Grundig Clinic Buehl offers the full range of medical services in the areas of its specialization. The department's medical team admits patients with malignant tumors and diseases of the hematopoietic system. The clinical practice pays special attention to screening examinations, which are the best type of cancer prevention. Such a diagnosis allows the doctor to assess the risks of developing cancer in a patient or detect pathology at an initial stage, when there is still a chance for a full recovery. The department's therapeutic concept is based on the use of classical treatment methods, for example, chemotherapy, hormone therapy, etc. However, oncologists also have reliable alternative therapies in their arsenal, which complement basic therapy. Depending on the complexity of the clinical case, the treatment can take place both on an inpatient and outpatient basis. The Chief Physician of the department is Prof. Dr. med. Clemens Unger.

When admitted to the department, the patient undergoes the comprehensive diagnosis. The department has advanced diagnostic equipment, which allows the doctors to detect the slightest abnormalities in the body that plays an important role in detecting cancer. After consulting with the patient and studying his medical history, he is appointed the necessary set of diagnostic tests, which can include extended laboratory diagnostics, ultrasound scanning, radiography, magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography, endoscopic diagnostic procedures, etc. Many patients are admitted to the department without any health complaints in order to undergo a screening examination, which helps them to assess the possibility of risks of developing cancer and take the necessary preventive measures.

The department provides not only the treatment of cancer and blood diseases, but also high quality follow-up care after the main treatment of pathology. Key attention is paid to follow-up examinations in order to prevent recurrence. In addition, the department's medical team has the necessary experience and qualifications to restore the body after treatment. Competent psychologists are actively involved in the therapeutic process to help the patient cope with emotional shock, stress and depressive conditions, which often occur both in patients who have just got to know their diagnosis of cancer and in those who are at the final stage of therapy.

It should be noted that the department's specialists are distinguished by the highest professionalism and vast experience in the field of medical treatment and care of patients suffering from oncological diseases. The doctors not only use the entire arsenal of diagnostic and therapeutic methods to restore the patient's health, but also support him morally, show understanding and humanity.
