Treatment at NCT

In principle, all modern possibilities of diagnosing and treating these diseases are available at the Heidelberg Urogenital Tumor Center.

The form of diagnostics and the type of treatment for patients with a urogenital tumor are precisely defined at NCT. The definition (standard operating procedure, SOP) is established by the specialists of the Heidelberg Urogenital Tumor Center and is updated at least once a year in line with the current international level of knowledge at the time.

Patients are comprehensively consulted in our specialist clinics. Every week the Urogenital Tumor Center holds interdisciplinarily tumor board meetings.
