Dear Patient,

anyone who is confronted with a suspected diagnosis of cancer is faced with existential questions from one day to the next: which examinations are needed to confirm the diagnosis quickly and reliably? What treatment options and therapies are available? How will the disease change my life? What can I do myself to effectively support the therapies in hospital? On the following pages we would like to answer the most important questions and give you an overview of the range of services offered by the Centre for Integrative Oncology at the Havelhöhe Community Hospital.

Because cancer always affects the whole person, we offer you an integrative treatment concept in which we combine all modern diagnostic and therapeutic procedures from conventional medicine, such as surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy, with integrative therapies from naturopathy and anthroposophic medicine. In this way, we strengthen our patients' self-healing powers and awaken physical and mental resources that help them to recover.

Our centre of excellence incorporates the Breast Cancer Centre, the Lung Cancer Centre and the Colorectal Cancer Centre. All three have been certified by the German Cancer Society and guarantee an excellent standard of expertise and specialist networking necessary for cancer care. Certification of our Gynaecological Cancer Centre is in progress. Our team of doctors and therapists also treats other cancers, such as lymphoma, leukaemia and thyroid cancer.

We offer our patients comprehensive care from the initial diagnosis and subsequent treatment to follow-up and aftercare. Patients with suspected cancer can also obtain a second opinion from an expert in the clinics at our organ centres.

Our units offer supportive therapy and palliative care medicine to cancer patients with severe symptoms such as increasing fatigue and exhaustion, nausea, pain or depression. The emphasis here is on improving their quality of life and increasing their chances of recovery.
