Range of medical services
In the special consultation hour for neuroendocrine tumors, you will be cared for if you have a neuroendocrine tumor, e.g. in the area of the gastrointestinal tract, the liver or the pancreas.
If you have problems in confirming the diagnosis, in planning the therapy, in carrying out various therapy options or in long-term tumor follow-up, you can be referred by your family doctor or the gastroenterologist in charge for presentation in the consultation hours.
At regular intervals, sometimes during an inpatient stay for a few days, extensive examinations of the tumor spread are carried out
to determine the current status of the disease,
to monitor the success of a therapy or
to document the possible progression of the disease in good time and then to be able to react to it with an adapted therapy.
Between the staging examinations, regular monitoring takes place in the special consultation hours, usually every three to six months, in order to be able to react to changes in the course of the disease at an early stage if necessary.
In cooperation with the Surgical Clinic of the Charité, Campus Virchow-Klinikum, a joint decision is made as to whether a surgical therapy option can be considered and, if so, surgery is performed. After surgery, you will then receive further care in the Department of Hepatology and Gastroenterology.
Some neuroendocrine tumors can lead to pathological changes in the heart, which can affect long-term life expectancy. In order to detect these at an early stage, a cardiological monitoring program has been established in collaboration with the Department of Cardiology at the German Heart Center Berlin (DHZB).
If surgical therapy is not an option in your case, or if you require additional internal therapy after surgery, you can be treated as far as possible within the framework of clinical studies according to the current state of knowledge. In addition to the possibilities of drug therapy (e.g. biotherapy with somatostatin analogues or interferon-alpha), this also includes interventional radiology with the possibilities of embolization or chemoembolization of liver metastases in cooperation with the Department of Radiation Oncology of the Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin. A radiotherapeutic procedure is also under development and will be offered as a therapeutic option.
