Visceral Oncology Center certified by German Cancer Society

Center for stomach cancer, pancreatic cancer and colorectal cancer at Vivantes Neukölln Hospital approved

Three in one: Vivantes Neukölln Hospital has been awarded the title of "Visceral Oncology Center recommended by the German Cancer Society (DKG)" for stomach cancer, pancreatic cancer and colorectal cancer in January 2021. The DKG had already certified the site as a colorectal cancer center in 2017; the two other diseases are new.

High requirements met

The interdisciplinary team has further improved oncological treatment for this award in order to meet the high professional requirements for treatment: Psycho-oncological care is now extended to all patients, oncological nursing has been strengthened and differentiated nutritional therapy for cancer patients has been introduced.

The Visceral Oncology Center of Vivantes Neukölln Hospital is headed by the chief physicians Prof. de Maike Wit (Oncology), Prof. Dr. Ulrich Böcker (Gastroenterology) and Dr. Mario Müller (Surgery).

Chief Physician PD Dr. Mario Müller: "We are very proud that under the difficult conditions of the pandemic with strict hygiene requirements we were able to show that our good cooperation here at the Neukölln Hospital provides great services for our oncological patients."

Proven very good quality

The center stands for a proven very good outcome quality of cancer treatments. The interdisciplinary colorectal cancer center at Vivantes Neukölln Hospital has been in existence since 2017 and has also been certified by the German Cancer Society. Since the initial certification of the colorectal cancer center, more than 400 patients with colorectal cancer have already been treated. Now, with the new certification since 2019, another 60 patients with pancreatic cancer and almost 70 patients with stomach and esophageal cancer will be treated according to the high quality standards of the DKG.
