Tumor boards

In our UCCH tumor boards physicians from different specialized areas come together.

For all patients with cancer diagnosis an individual treatment concept will be discussed and recommended after diagnosis or during the course of therapy. The recommendations are based on standardized treatment concepts (pathways), which are developed within interdisciplinary working groups (task forces) at the Hubertus Wald Tumor Center. They are designed for each tumor type and are constantly updated.

At the tumor board it will also be discussed, if participating in a current clinical trial can be an option for the patient.

Our objective is the best care and treatment for our tumor patients, respecting the guidelines of the latest internationally recognized pathways of standardized procedures on highest scientific level.
