About the department
According to the Focus magazine, the Department of Hematology, Oncology and Immunology at the University Hospital Marburg UKGM ranks among the top German medical facilities specializing in leukemia treatment!
The department offers accurate diagnostics and effective treatment of malignant and benign blood diseases, solid tumors. The patients are treated in close collaboration with the Comprehensive Cancer Center. Of particular interest to the department's doctors is the treatment of various types of leukemia (within the specialized center with advanced infrastructure). The department takes part in many national and international clinical trials, which makes it possible for patients with advanced stages of cancer to receive treatment using innovative therapeutic methods.
The department is headed by Prof. Dr. med. Andreas Neubauer. The doctor has a unique competence in the field of his specialization and regularly ranks among the top German doctors (according to the Focus magazine)!
The department has vast experience in the treatment of patients with chemotherapeutic drugs. Chemotherapy is carried out on an outpatient basis, so the patient can return home after it. The therapeutic offer is supplemented by other treatment methods, for example, red blood cell and platelet transfusion, immunoglobulin infusions, antibody immunotherapy, pleural puncture and laparocentesis. One of the important components of therapy is psycho-oncological care. The specialists help patients to cope with a diagnosis and to cheer up for a positive therapy outcome.
The department also specializes in bone marrow transplantation, which is most often used in malignant diseases of the hematopoietic (for example, leukemia) and lymphatic systems (for example, malignant lymphoma). The department performs about 20 allogeneic and more than 30 autologous transplantations every year. In addition, it applies new transplantation methods, which allow to increase its efficiency. The clinical activities in this field are certified in accordance with the requirements of JACIE (Joint Accreditation Committee ISCT-Europe & EBMT) and the European Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation (EBMT), which guarantees the best possible safety and treatment effectiveness.
