Diagnosis and therapy of tumours

Claraspital is known for its emphasis on the diagnosis and therapy of tumours in the gastrointestinal tract:

  • Tumours of the gastrointestinal tract
    • Oesophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine
    • Liver, gall bladder, pancreas
    • GIST (gastrointestinal stromal tumours)

Patients with all other types of malignant tumour can of course be treated in Claraspital as well:

  • Lung cancer
  • Breast cancer
  • Cancer of the ovaries and womb
  • Prostate cancer
  • Testicular cancer
  • Bladder and kidney cancer
  • Malignant disorders of the lymphatic system
    • Lymphomas (Hodgkin's and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma)
    • Multiple myeloma (plasmocytoma)
  • Brain tumours
  • Cancer of the soft tissues (sarcoma)
  • Skin cancer (melanoma)
  • Neuroendocrine tumours
  • and others

In the rare cases in which we are not able to offer the optimal therapy, we approach the most suitable centre with a view to collaboration. We cooperate closely with the University Hospital in Basel, for example, where patients who require stem cell transplantation can be treated.
