Hematology & Oncology
„Our main focus is to gently accompany a stressful time.“
Dr. med. Ingrid Raßmann, Senior Physician
The hematologic-oncologic practice focuses on diagnostics and therapy of benign and malign tumors of all organs, benign and malign illnesses of the hematopoietic system as well as illnesses of the lymphatic and immune system. For the detection of the clinical picture we have state-of-the-art diagnostic procedures at our disposal especially due to our inhouse hematologic laboratory and our hematologic-oncologic special diagnostics. We perform bone marrow biopsies as well as ultrasound, computer and magnetic resonance tomography without any difficulty.
We know that a cancer diagnosis is considered one of the most stressful events in our patients’ lives. Therefore it is of utmost importance to accompany you right from the beginning. We want to show ways, to be a port of call for all questions you may have considering your current situation. We also see ourselves as contact persons for your family and relatives. Beside the comprehensive therapeutic treatment spectrum we offer a complex network of accompanying measures to facilitate your handling of your cancerous disease. This includes nutrition counseling, active exercise therapy but also a long-lasting psycho-oncologic support like music and talk therapy.
The cooperation with our inhouse palliative medical unit is an important additional pillar dealing with life-threatening cancerous diseases. To enable home-care we collaborate closely with your general practitioner, nursing services and the local institutions of palliative care if necessary.
