Which clinics in Germany are most suitable for the treatment of pancreatic cancer? 24 hospitals which guarantee high quality of treatment are listed here.
Pancreatic cancer (also called pancreatic carcinoma) often remains undetected because it doesn’t show any symptoms at first. Therefore, the chances of recovery are often low in the case of a late diagnosis.
Possible symptoms in an advanced stage are pain in the upper abdomen or digestive disorders. Some of the risk factors are smoking, alcohol consumption and obesity.
According to the guideline, depending on the growth of the tumor, pancreatic cancer can be treated with surgery, chemo- or radiation therapy or pain therapy.

This is how the clinic list was created
- Many patients! At the clinics presented above, the doctors have great experience with pancreatic cancer (ICD C25), because only hospitals that treat pancreatic cancer on an above-average basis have been taken into consideration. Hospitals are obliged to inform about their medical treatment in quality reports and to provide this information to the Federal Joint Committee.
- High Level of Patient Safety! All of the clinics attach above-average value to patient safety. At least 45 out of 55 measures have been taken in order to guarantee optimal hygiene before, during and after surgery.
- Excellent Equipment! All clinics have the equipment that is necessary for the treatment at their disposal which guarantees a successful therapy. At least 14 out of 17 criteria are fulfilled in the equipment of the hospital.
- Certifications! When a clinic receives a certificate, this means that there are doctors who specialized in the treatment of pancreatic cancer and that the necessary equipment for treatment is available. All of the clinics in the list have been certified as Centers for Pancreatic Carcinoma by the German Cancer Society.
This is just a small selection of German clinics. Of course, many other hospitals also offer a high quality of treatment.
