Cancer treatment in Austria
Cancer research has a special importance and a long tradition in Austria.
Austria is one of the countries with very good chances for cancer patients – namely because of the high availability of new methods and modern drugs, as well as good hospital infrastructure.
Molecular biology research into the characteristics of tumour cells and tumour genes forms the basis of modern treatment strategies. Advances in science and medical practice have contributed to a significant improvement in the chances of cancer patients compared to 10 years ago. Long-term survival rates have improved considerably for most cancers. In more and more cases, even a permanent cure is possible.
PCCV relies on the latest imaging technologies, endocospic procedures, cooperation with specialized pathology laboratories and an interdisciplinary approach.
Using the latest molecular methods, “tumor profiling” allows accurate classification of tumors according to their molecular properties, which is the basis for personalized treatment.
Modern treatment of cancer diseases is based on close cooperation between different medical specialties such as oncology, radiology, surgery, pathology, radiation oncology (radiotherapy). This cooperation requires systematic coordination.
The PCCV has an extensive network of renowned specialists who are consulted on a case-by-case basis. Many of these specialists have international experience and participate in innovative scientific studies in the field of cancer research. This allows new scientific findings to be rapidly implemented in clinical practice.
Specialists discuss each case together in multidisciplinary oncology committees, the so-called Tumour Boards, and initiate the necessary diagnostic and therapeutic measures.
Modern drug therapy
Chemotherapy, antibody-targeted or molecular biology-based therapies or nuclear medicine are all modern treatment methods, and more and more patients can benefit from individualised cancer therapy (‘personalised medicine’).
Modern surgical methods
At the PremiQaMed hospitals minimally invasive surgery is applied in many cases. Major and very stressful operations are increasingly becoming a thing of the past.
PCCV offers patients the possibility to verify the diagnosis based on the results of recently performed tests and investigations and, if necessary, a second histopathological diagnostic opinion of the tumour tissue with an accurate classification of the tumor.
The evaluation of all results of analyses and investigations and the development of therapy recommendations is carried out by an interdisciplinary team of renowned specialists.
The second medical opinion is offered both in hospital and remotely.
Cancer prevention and early detection
In the hospitals of the PremiQaMed Group in Vienna, special importance is attached to preventive medicine, which includes in particular the prevention and early detection of cancer by means of complex preventive medical investigations. All investigations can be carried out in the shortest possible time on an outpatient basis and appointments for this are organised without long waiting times.
Professional case management is essential. It starts with accurate diagnosis and therapy planning.
Throughout the entire treatment process, patients are cared for at all times by a specialist who coordinates all necessary measures with other medical specialties and is available to patients as a contact person.
The PCCV attaches particular importance to cooperation with elite institutes in Vienna, such as special laboratories and institutes for radiotherapy. All necessary measures are organised by the PCCV and are available quickly.
Flexible organisation and personalised service
The PCCV offers oncology patients an interdisciplinary specialised centre where they can quickly receive competent medical support, clarification of their condition and treatment options based on the latest scientific knowledge.
International patients benefit from organisational and administrative support from the International Desk staff. The doctors at the PremiQaMed Group Hospitals in Vienna speak English, and if necessary, the service of an experienced translator can also be provided.
Initial discussions or consultations for a second medical opinion can also take place in the form of video consultations.
Thanks to the flexible structure, appointments can in most cases be made quickly.
