Neuro-oncology / brain tumors

Neuro-oncology is dealing with the diagnosis, treatment and post-operative care of patients with brain tumors. The Department of Neurosurgery has a designated neuro-oncology ward (Station Riechert) and the tumor consultation hours available for this purpose.

To give our patients with brain tumors optimal treatment, the Department of Neurosurgery is working closely together with other departments as the Department of Radiation Oncology and Hematology / Oncology . In addition to surgical treatment, we also offer various chemotherapeutic treatments on an outpatient or inpatient basis and the participation in clinical trials.

Considering the different treatment options and the participating departments, it is our mission to inform our patients about all diagnostic and therapeutic options and to coordinate all necessary steps to be taken.

The consultation hours of the neuro-oncology department are focusing on patients with:

  • Spinal tumors
  • Skull base tumors (tumors in the skull)

  • Tumors in children
  • Hemangioblastomas and von Hippel-Lindau disease
