About the Department of Radiation Therapy at University Hospital Würzburg

According to the Focus magazine, the Department of Radiation Therapy at the University Hospital Würzburg is included in the ranking of the top German department specializing in radiation therapy! 

The department offers all types of modern radiation therapy for the treatment of cancers. The competent medical team of the department annually provides its services to 2,000 patients. The department is headed by Prof. Dr. med. Michael Flentje.
