Helios Cancer Centre

Therapy for esophagus cancer

As a DKG-certified cancer center with a focus on esophagus cancer, we are particularly specialized in the treatment of oesophageal cancer.

Every year, about 11,000 people in Germany contract esophageal cancer. The treatment is often complex and requires special expertise. While in an early stage the tumour can usually be removed directly, therapy in an advanced stage usually requires a prior combination of radiation and chemotherapy. Subsequently, surgery to remove the tumour can then be performed.

Operation: An essential part of the therapy

Our clinic is particularly specialised in oncological visceral surgery and has experts who are particularly experienced in the treatment of oesophageal cancer. Amongst other things, we have actively participated in the German guideline for the treatment of oesophageal cancer. Wherever possible, we use minimally invasive - but equally radical - surgical procedures and earn nationwide recognition for this. These techniques make it possible to reduce the complication rates of the operation and increase safety.

Certified focus of the oncology center

Due to the complexity of the treatment - especially the operation for oesophageal cancer - experience and expertise must be demonstrated in Germany by adherence to a legal minimum quantity.

At our centre we not only meet these minimum quantities but are also certified for the treatment of oesophageal cancer by the German Cancer Society. All medical specialties for the treatment of this disease are available at our oncology center. These include in particular gastroenterology, internal oncology and radiotherapy.

If you have any questions about the treatment of oesophageal cancer, please do not hesitate to contact us.
