Cancer Treatment in Austria
The chances for recovery are increasing
Information about the nature of a particular tumor allows experts to select targeted treatment methods. This allows to avoid unnecessary and stressful chemotherapy, and many patients have a chance to receive more effective treatment with fewer side effects. In many cases, new high-performance medications are used specifically to treat particular types of tumors.
Diagnostics and second opinion
Oncology experts at PremiQaMed hospitals offer patients a thorough diagnosis and work out individual treatment plans based on the latest scientific advances. There is a possibility to receive second opinion without being onsite. Patients can send their medical findings and reports to the clinic and get a consultation from the specialist.
The treatment of cancer has made significant advances in recent years. New research results and new therapy options make it possible to treat tumor diseases successfully in more and more cases and to sustainably improve the quality of life of affected patients.
Well-coordinated cooperation of experts of various disciplines and professional patient management are crucial for successful treatment. At PremiQaMed hospitals patients are cared for individually by one specialist – usually a University professor - who is available to the patient from the admission for diagnostics until the end of the treatment course. Appointments can be made at short notice. Apart from the main goal – to overcome the cancer disease - preservation of affected organs and their functionality are also of great importance. Therefore, modern minimally invasive surgery methods are widely applied in our hospitals.
Every human is unique. And everyone reacts differently to certain treatments. Using molecular genetic diagnostics, a tumor profile is created that shows genetic changes in more than 300 genes with high accuracy, which according to the current scientific status are involved in the development of tumors.
This means that, under certain conditions, an individualized therapy can be applied. From a selection of modern cancer treatments such as tumor surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy or immunotherapy, a method can be chosen that is "tailor-made" for each patient, which is particularly promising for him and, ideally, also reduces side effects.
New methods are also available in surgery, which increasingly allow to operate as little invasively as possible and preserve organs. Of course, always under the condition of the radical removal of the tumor - but the large and very stressful operations are increasingly becoming a thing of the past.
