Bowel cancer – our treatment

Bowel cancer does not necessarily go hand in hand with physical symptoms such as pain. The diagnosis of bowel cancer often comes as a shock for those affected. If your bowel cancer is detected early, your prognosis is good, in many cases bowel cancer is even curable with today's methods of treatment. To prevent bowel cancer from occurring, we perform colonoscopy, to endoscopically remove polyps that could turn into bowel cancer or at least detect tumours early. You will be treated expertly and in accordance with the latest scientific findings by the specialists at our interdisciplinary Abdominal Centre at Schoen Clinic Hamburg Eilbek in the event of bowel cancer. Experts in the surgical and internal specialist field work hand in hand, aiming for the best possible bowel cancer treatment and positive prognosis for you. Your guideline-oriented therapy will be discussed and decided in detail in an interdisciplinary oncological consultation. Depending on the stage of the disease, your treatment includes various non-surgical measures, such as chemotherapy. Conservative therapies are often combined with, or preceded by, bowel cancer surgery. Our surgeons in Hamburg specialise in gentle surgical techniques in bowel cancer treatment: Our hospital is the only facility in Hamburg that is certified as a centre of excellence for minimally invasive surgery. You can rely on our medical expertise in the treatment of your bowel cancer.
