Oncological abdominal medicine includes the following types of cancer: oesophageal cancer, pancreatic cancer, gallbladder cancer, liver cancer, stomach cancer and intestinal cancer.

To provide the best possible treatment for patients with these diagnoses, a variety of oncological specialists collaborate closely at the Tumour Centre Hirslanden Zurich.

They come from a variety of specialist areas (e.g. gastroenterology, surgery, radiology, pathology, oncology, radiotherapy) and have extensive expertise in the treatment of abdominal cancers . They advise each other and jointly develop each patient’s personalised therapy plan.

The Tumour Centre hosts regular interdisciplinary tumour boards, so that the specialists can pool their knowledge and expertise. The specialists who meet on these boards discuss each patient’s treatment plan and the anticipated success of the treatment.
