About the department

The department of oncology and alternative medicine at BioMed Hospital specialises in traditional and alternative medicine for various types of cancer. Cancer treatment includes not only surgical removal of the tumour, chemotherapy and radiotherapy but also supportive and reconstructive therapy aimed at regenerating and restoring the body's resourcesThe department has over 25 years of experience in this therapy and performs more than 14,000 hyperthermia procedures per year. A medical team, including physicians, physiotherapists, and nursing staff, support the patient with all strength and possibilities - medically and human. The department also employs psycho-oncologists with exceptional experience in cancer treatment. They significantly improve mental health and mobilise forces to fight the disease. Also, the department provides palliative care for patients with advanced cancer to improve their quality of life.

The department conducts all types of cancer treatment, but the main focus is on hyperthermia. With the help of hyperthermia, such results of chemotherapy and radiotherapy can be increased. In addition, the department is using alternative medicine with great success, particularly orthomolecular treatment and mistletoe therapy.
