The Clinic for Oncology, Haematology and Palliative Medicine

Specialised in the detection, medical treatment, and coordination of treatment of malignant diseases.

The Clinic for Oncology, Haematology and Palliative Medicine is part of the Interdisciplinary Oncology Centre (IOC) launched in 1979 as a pilot project with funds from the Federal Ministry of Health and recognised at Marian Hospital Düsseldorf as an Oncology Centre in 2004 because of its structures focused on oncology.

The staff at the Clinic for Oncology, Haematology and Palliative Medicine specialise in the detection and medical treatment of malignant diseases of the body organs (known as solid tumours, and carcinomas of the connective and supportive tissues, known as sarcomas) as well as malignancies of the blood and lymphatic organs (lymphoma, leukaemia etc.).

As needed, the medical treatment of cancer may take place in the hospital or – in consultation with private practice physicians – in the day hospital or outpatient area.

Another major area of the Clinic’s responsibility encompasses the coordination of interdisciplinary cancer therapy, psychosocial counselling, and cancer aftercare.
