At Hirslanden, regular tumourboard meetings are held to determine the best possible therapy for each patient. Various medical specialists come together once a week at these meetings to discuss treatment options for new or existing tumour patients and plan their therapies.

The tumourboard members include specialists from medical oncology, haematology, radiation oncology, pathology, visceral and thoracic surgery, gynaecology, urology, ENT, neurosurgery, pneumology, gastroenterology, nuclear medicine and diagnostic radiology. Referring doctors are also welcome to attend the meetings.

This is the best way to coordinate comprehensive and individualised therapy for every patient, and to ensure cancer patients benefit from a variety of specialist expertise.
