Cancer treatment in Germany

50 clinics

Germany is considered one of the top destinations among foreign patients for oncology treatment in the world due to:

  • Best German oncology centers. The leading hospitals are certified by German Cancer Society that confirms highest standards in cancer treatment. The work of centers is strictly regulated on the state level.
  • Clinical trials and development for oncology treatment. Specialists of cancer hospitals in Germany provide the scientific activity to implement new therapies.
  • Up to 99% of cancer treatment efficiency. Due to advanced technologies and doctors’ experience, even complex oncology may be successfully treated.

Disadvantages of cancer treatment in Germany:

  • High price. The cancer treatment cost in Germany is 2-3 times higher than in Asian hospitals (for instance, Turkish hospitals are internationally certified and cooperate with top American centers, but keep prices low).
  • Long waiting times. Best cancer treatment centers in Germany may response within up to 2-3 weeks. It is often a reason why patients choose Turkey or Thailand if they need an urgent treatment.

Submit a request on Bookimed, and we will assist in choosing the best option in your particular case. Our services do not affect the bill from the hospital.

Below are represented the best cancer treatment centers in Germany. The rating is based on their certifications, patients’ reviews and Bookimed Medical Doctors’ opinion.

The patient was treated of colon cancer

We first used the services of medicine in Germany. The Nordwest Clinic, like its doctors, has left an exceptionally positive impression. Before the trip, a plan was made for visits to doctors, tests and time of surgery, which was strictly adhered to. The quality of services provided was provided at a high level. We have no comments or complaints. The host in the form of Russian-speaking translators constantly accompanied us at all stages of treatment. Special thanks to Alyona (Bookimed), who promptly and extensively answered any of our questions, which prompted us to decide to use the services of Bookimed.

Hello. I went to a clinic in Germany, Bookimed helped me a lot. Alexander and Kiril were very attentive to my problem. Thank them so much. The clinic was very carefully selected for treatment, where I was very well received. The whole team helped me and answered all my questions. I cannot say anything for the treatment so far as the protocol has just been appointed and there is no result yet. If you want to find a good clinic, I advise everyone to use the services of Bookimed.

The patient was treated of colon cancer

I am writing a review for those people who are in the same difficult situation as our family. Just want to warn, think before you go here. They did not help us ... Moreover, now we understand that they simply did not tell us the truth, promised treatment that everything would be fine and we believed in it, sincerely! They didn’t save on treatment, did everything they recommended, but they just cheerlessly pumped chemistry and prescribed unnecessary consultations like a physiotherapist with charging a hopelessly sick person !!! The company "phoenix" is a soulless creature with the function of receiving money, I don’t even know how to call them anymore ... Doctor Professor Eger also smiled on detours and said that everything would be fine and didn’t even tell the family that the situation was getting worse, she appointed procedures ... As we now understand, everything was clear for a long time, we just wanted to be "treated" because we paid. They tortured our daddy heartlessly and cynically for money !!! Curator Stoyanova stopped responding to letters and the phone immediately, as soon as they informed her that the patient no longer exists. NO ONE! neither she, nor "phoenix", nor the clinic, they even expressed condolences ... It hurts to realize that nothing human is left in people ... We scolded our Russian doctors, and they just told us the truth right away

I am very grateful to Olga for her help. It promptly and autumn responded to all questions regarding receiving a foreign consultation - sending documents, choosing which clinic and doctor to choose, sharing personal experience, controlling and agreeing on time for consultation and being interested in its results, in general showed full cooperation and interest. Thank you! The consultation itself went well - with the help of an interpreter, all the questions of interest were discussed with the professor from Germany, the main result - the exposure of the fact that the treatment is now proceeding in the right direction, also received from the professor some very important advice that did not appear in the consultations with Ukrainian doctors.

The patient was treated of sarcoma

My son was treated in this clinic for osteosarcoma of the left knee. The doctors we liked, attentive, responsive. True, there was no definite attending physician, as if all the doctors were in the know, and sometimes they had to tell everyone again. I would especially like to mention Christina Chef, a very pleasant and sensible doctor, and of course Gabriela Strauss, deputy head of department. Nurses know their business, sympathize with sick children, try to help, encourage. In the department of a homely atmosphere, lying is not boring. Either clowns will come, then a musician plays instruments with children, then volunteers make crafts with children, they treat with cocktails, they spend relaxation sessions. In general, the treatment is not painful, we liked it. About the cons, I will say that the previously announced amount of treatment does not correspond to the actual one. In reality, it turns out to be 30% more expensive, it must be taken into account by anyone who wants to know in advance how much the treatment will cost.

The patient was treated of sarcoma

I think my story can support and inspire many people going through the rough period of uncertainty. So I was diagnosed with sarcoma in Dubai, the place where the level of medicine is extremely low. But even if you know you cannot trust the doctors, learning such news is very hard. My first idea was going to Germany for second opinion. After googling opportunities I sent a request to bookimed and got a call from medical coordinator Liza within 1 hour. Liza is an amazingly professional doctor but moreover she is a very compassionate and responsible person. She was with me through all my periods of doubts, questions and of course celebration. My visit to Berlin Buch was organized within 1 week’s time. And after 2 weeks I was in the hospital. Private Clinic in Berlin Buch is nice. But the most important is the doctors you meet there. My doctor – Juliane Bock is the best doctor I have ever met in my life. Attentive, professional, straight to the point and very understanding. Long story short. All the necessary tests and scans were made within 5 hours and I left the hospital for a 2 week waiting of my biopsy results. After 2 weeks I received a thorough reply from the hospital saying that the initial diagnosis was a mistake. And the tumor was benign. I am really grateful to Bookimed team and Berlin Buch team for helping me in every step of this hard period of my life, for support, professionalism and exceptional expertise.

The patient was treated of prostate cancer

Looking back on the past life, I can say that I did not go to doctors regularly. I thought this: the disease itself came, she herself will leave. Only sometimes I went on an ECG, because at the age of twelve I suffered myocarditis. And since I worked very hard for many years, I can say that I worked as a "slave on galleys," I always stopped near the pharmacy and measured the pressure. My wife and I have a very happy family life and I was worried that one day a love relationship could be misfired. For this reason, I underwent routine prophylactic examinations of the prostate.

In 2001 I retired. At the insistence of my wife, I went to the examination. Frequent urination, which worried me a bit, I explained by the supercooling of the bladder. In the course of the survey, among others, prostate-specific antigen (PSA) was determined. In December 2001, it was: 3.1 μg / l. I was told that there was nothing to worry about. But I did not relax and (together with my wife!) With some skepticism found on the Internet a lot of information regarding the prostate and began to regularly (on a fee basis) determine my PSA.

After a year, he was 4.2. After another 8 months, 5.0 μg / l. Then he froze for a while. In 2005, he again crawled up from 5.5, bypassing 7.0, and amounted to 10.1 mkg / l in December 2005. At the end of January I had to do a biopsy. Out of 12 samples, tissues 2 were positive. For me it was not a surprise, but, as they say, hope dies last. The biopsy did not seem to me painful, although somewhat unpleasant. As it seems to me, it is not necessary to be afraid of it. Already in mid-January, I was internally prepared for a serious test called "prostate carcinoma". At the same time, my wife learned about the event held by the self-help group on the topic "Prostate". At this event, the professor, MD, A. Böhle should make a report on the high degree of risk in the prostate and about brachytherapy, which I already knew from the Internet. In this event my wife and I took part. Professor A. Böhle answered our questions with exhaustive answers. I felt psychologically well prepared to hear the "fatal news" from the results of a biopsy. Our solution, i.e. not mine, but the decision taken by my wife and myself, in case of passing a serious test, was taken in advance.

To conduct brachytherapy by Professor Böhle at the HELIOS hospital named after Agnes Karl in Bad Schwartau, I was assigned the day of the operation in May 2006. In 14 days the wedding of our youngest daughter was due. I so wanted to be in shape again to this day. Preliminary examinations that were usual for such a case were completed. It was found out that I also have an enlarged prostate, the so-called benign prostatic hyperplasia, and it needs to be reduced (with the help of medications) before the operation.

Brachytherapy went according to plan: I was implanted 81 micro-source of radioactive radiation (the so-called "Seeds"). After 2 days I was at home, finished the remaining work in the garden and started preparing for the wedding together with my wife. As expected, the wedding sang and danced until the morning. I well endured this holiday, although I had to put up with side effects (frequent urge to urinate and frequent urination). Over time, erectile dysfunction arose. To eliminate it, I take tablets, so-called, PD 5- inhibitors.

Almost 3 years have passed since the brachytherapy. I can say that I feel well, there was no recurrence of cancer. From the perspective of today, I consider brachytherapy to be one of the best and most sparing methods of treating prostate carcinoma. However, I recommend that every man undergo preventive examinations, and in addition to them at regular intervals determine the value of PSA. It, although it is not a tumor marker, but it should be considered as a very important medical parameter. When complaints about the condition of the bladder and prostate should be addressed in time to the urologist. I confess, I, perhaps, long delayed. Perhaps I would have created more favorable medical conditions for brachytherapy, for example, fewer micro sources of "Seeds". But, as they say, to know where to fall, there would straws and podstelil. A spouse or spouse should also be publicly informed about changes in the health sphere that have a negative impact or can affect the sexual life. In my opinion, this will have a positive impact on the strengthening of mutual trust and mutual consent. However, medical measures aimed at treating the disease as such, such as cancer, must always be in the center of attention.

Very quick and clear consultation of Bookimed coordinators. For several hours, they helped organize a consultation at the clinic and lure the flight.

The patient was treated of breast cancer

Good afternoon everyone! The company bukimed very much helped in solving the terrible misfortune that happened in my family - this is cancer, namely the consultant Koval Ivan, gave hope for the recovery of my aunt. A couple of words about how the bukimed advised us with the hospital: we filed an application with a specific problem, and on the same day we received a call from the consultant Ivan, exactly one day we were offered three hospital options in Europe with a full description of the doctors and the cost of treatment. A week later we were already in Germany at a reception with Professor Dr. Hensch, the consultation was held at a very high level. Now my aunt is being treated and I'm sure that the treatment will be successful.)) I think the aunt will tell in more detail after full recovery. Personally from myself and from the weight of my family, I want to say HUGE thanks to the company Bukimed and Ivan for the quality work.

The patient was treated of prostate cancer

I want to evaluate the work of Bookimed as a whole on the results of organizing the treatment of a father well. After examining the results of the surveys, we were presented with options for treatment. Despite the fact that initially we practically had a clinic for treatment selected (on our own), we revised and made a decision to undergo treatment at a clinic in Germany, which Bookimed offered. For all organizational issues, both Bookimed and the logistics company from the clinic offered support. We did everything on our own, but still it is nice when they want to help you. There were minor inconsistencies in organizational issues. But with the mines that provide support, always in touch and help them solve. But as for the treatment process at Helios Krefeld, everything is on the level. The result is satisfied. Of the minuses - the discharge process is not fully organized, the time for receipt of documents is not specific and rather long. A translator is needed. After we returned from treatment, we are awaiting the receipt of documents (conclusions) from the clinic, we have not left us on this issue either. Bookimed is a company of a good modern level, in any case do not think not to trust. The main thing is to keep the level and only raise it.

The patient underwent hair transplant

First of all, thanks to my coordinating doctor Maxim. Thanks to him, I came to this clinic. Everything went at the highest level. We met at the Airport, settled into the Hotel (excellent room), which is located 20 meters from the Clinic itself + everything was included tomorrow with a buffet that is located in the restaurant of the Hotel. The operation was easy and painless. The staff at the clinic is very attentive and caring. Upon completion, they were taken to the airport. I want to express my gratitude:  Doctor Cagatay Cebeci - was in touch with me 24/7 as well as in addition to the clinic, both on professional issues and on personal help.  Madame Safiye - conducted an inspection and came to check how the operation was going.  Secil and Sibel are professionals in their field, it was they who performed the hair transplant surgery, everything went quickly and easily. Two charismatic girls.  Thanks to all the staff, everyone was interested in how I was doing and whether everything looked fine with my hair. The driver made sure that I carefully sat down and got out of the car.
