ASKLEPIOS BARMBEK IN FIGURES

ONCOLOGY AND ONCOHEMATOLOGY DEPARTMENT

The Department has the certificate of the German Cancer Society (DKG). Oncologists of the Department treat different types of cancer and have 15-20 years of experience. The medical equipment here complies with international quality standards.

16,000 patients receive treatment in the Department every year.

Multidisciplinary approach. What is it?

A medical team develops the treatment plan for Asklepios Barmbek patients. A team consists of several doctors: oncologist, surgeon, radiologist, and chemotherapy specialist. Together they prescribe the most effective and safe surgeries and medications. Such an approach helps to avoid medical error in comparison with the case when one doctor independently plans the treatment.

Council of physicians

 

Types of cancer therapy in Asklepios Barmbek

  • Chemotherapy is the medication treatment of cancer. Undergoing chemotherapy, patients take pills or droppers. Such drugs effectively destroy malignant tissues, but also affect healthy ones — hair follicles, mucous membranes, and hematopoietic cells. This can cause such side effects as hair loss and discomfort in the gastrointestinal tract. Oncologists of Asklepios Barmbek select chemotherapy individually for each patient to reduce the occurrence of side effects.
  • Target therapy is a modern drug treatment method. Target drugs affect precisely malignant cells, without damaging the healthy ones. That’s why side effects occur less frequently than after chemotherapy. Doctors prescribe targeted drugs for the treatment of breast and prostate cancer, melanoma, lymphoma, multiple myeloma.
  • Multimodal therapy is a chemotherapy in combination with the surgery and/or radiotherapy. Oncologists apply this method to treat colon, pancreas, esophagus, stomach, lungs and breast cancers.
  • Interventional oncology is a local effect on the tumor. Doctors use a catheter or needle to inject the drug directly into the vessels leading to cancer. Doctors destroy some neoplasms with the help of ultrasound, the source of which is fixed on the end of the needle. This allows accurately affecting the malignant cells without damaging the healthy ones. The method is used for the therapy of liver, large intestine, stomach, esophagus, breast cancers.

SURGERY DEPARTMENT

Doctors of the Department specialize in the surgical treatment of benign and malignant tumors.

 

Endoscopic operations through the body openings 

Doctors perform endoscopic procedures to remove tumors and polyps in the gastrointestinal tract. The operations are minimally invasive, they are performed through the anus or esophagus. Due to the absence of incisions, a patient does not feel severe pain after the procedure. The recovery period takes 1-3 days.

 

Laparoscopic interventions through 1-3 cm punctures 

Most of the operations at Asklepios Barmbek are laparoscopic. They are performed through small punctures up to 3 cm. Doctors use thin tools and a mini camera to remove the tumor accurately and not damage the surrounding tissues. Surgeons apply laparoscopy to remove hernias, neoplasms in the stomach and urogenital system.

 

VATS is the gold standard for lung cancer surgery 

VATS is a video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery. Doctors remove the tumor through 1-2 punctures. It allows conducting the operation without the sternum opening. Surgeons watch the whole operation process on the monitor. It increases the accuracy of the procedure. VATS is prescribed in the early stages of lung cancer when the tumor does not spread beyond the organ.
