It offers medical treatment at the highest scientific level, not only due to the interdisciplinary diagnosis, therapy, postoperative care and rehabilitation, but also due to modern strategies of prevention and early detection of malignancies. Also, the Comprehensive Cancer Center is staffed by specially trained personnel, which offers counseling and care of cancer patients before, during and after therapy.
