I was very impressed with the thoroughness of the treatment which I received in Germany. The fact that it did not lead to the treatment which I was hoping for was wholly related to the nature of my disease. As it was I gained some valuable insights into a fresh development in my disease which has been helpful back in the UK.

    Methods of treatment of thyroid cancer

    All kinds of thyroid tumors, excepting highly-differentiated carcinomas, require surgical resection of the tumor/gland and subsequent (chemo-)radiotherapy. Therefore, the treatment of thyroid cancer is held on the collaboration of 2 medical branches: Endocrinal Surgery Unit and Clinic for Nuclear Medicine.

    Radioiodine ablation: radioactive iodine (131I) is implemented to patient orally in capsule. Iodine atoms are accumulated only in thyroid cells and due to β-radiation inhibit the thyroxine-producing activity, which allows to get rid of metastases as well. A small part of γ-radiation is also present, that is why this manipulation needs to be carried out under strict supervision of attending physician.

    The operations may be performed as standard or minimally invasive. During the entire operation neuromonitoring is held to save the vocal cord nerve.

    Who treats the thyroid cancer?

    Every single case engages the Head of the Endocrinal Surgery Clinic (Klinik für Endokrine Chirurgie) Prof. Dr. med. Cornelia Dotzenrath, who obtains the diploma of the European Board of Surgical Qualification and the Chief of Nuclear Medicine division (Klinik für Nuklearmedizin) Dr. Marco Tosch, who was endorsed as outstanding radiologist by FOCUS® Magazine.

The hospital was good , and I liked the how you feel like there is always support when you need specially when you are travelling to aplace where you know no one . Diana was always in reach when I needed something during the prep phase , and Olena was very supportive during the stay . however I think that its better to arrange appointments with doctor at least 30 min meetings before travelling to have some arrangements done with the doctor before travelling . regards
