Significant progress has been made in recent years in the treatment of cancer. Recent research results and the growing diversity of treatment options make it possible today to successfully treat malignant tumors in an increasing number of cases, resulting in a lasting improvement to the patients’ quality of life. Döbling Private Hospital combines all relevant services under one roof – partly in collaboration with external specialists – to offer rapid diagnosis, surgical interventions and systemic oncological treatments of the highest caliber.
The treatment of cancer always rests on three main pillars: comprehensive screening checks at Döbling Outpatient Center, the outstanding expertise of our attending physicians in many areas of oncology and a sensitive care philosophy that clearly places the patients and their difficult life situation in the focus.
For example, the Breast Health Center at Döbling Outpatient Center provides all services relating to the topic of breast health. The treatment of breast carcinoma – by far the most common form of cancer in women – also strongly attests the high quality standards of Döbling Private Hospital. Our capabilities include state-of-the-art diagnostics with the aid of tomosynthesis (“3D mammography”), our Tumor Board for multidisciplinary treatment planning, operations by highly regarded breast surgeons and systemic oncological treatments.
In other fields of cancer medicine, the hospital also enjoys an excellent international reputation and can rely on exceptional expertise, such as in the treatment of kidney tumors with a focus on kidney preservation. Innovative procedures, such as frozen section analysis, make it possible to clarify uncertain findings even during an operation and verify the absence of tumor at the edge of the excision.
At our hospital, cancer patients are also supported by a specially trained oncological nurse and a dietitian. The kitchen is always ready to meet special wishes, such as when eating becomes difficult during chemotherapy. The comfortable ambiance of our rooms and our tranquil garden also contribute to patient well-being and recovery.
