About the clinic

The Greater Poland Cancer Center Poznan, since 1952, has been a modern center for the comprehensive and modern treatment of oncological lesions. The clinic is one of three in Poland that uses CyberKnife and accepts the most difficult palliative cases from all over the world for treatment. The quality of service provision meets the requirements of ISO. 158 inpatient treatment beds and a developed outpatient care system help serve 20,000 patients annually efficiently. For convenience, the hospital has all the necessary equipment for accurate diagnoses, such as ultrasound, X-ray, mammography, CT, MRI, scintigraphy, and PET-CT. The oncology center was the first in the country to use a mammotomy biopsy laboratory with a modern device for stereotaxic mammotomy. This approach helps to examine the smallest neoplasms of the mammary gland quickly and without unnecessary trauma. The surgeons were also pioneers in resectioning the esophagus without opening the chest and using the Akiyama method. Since 1997, the clinic has been the only center for gastrointestinal laser therapy in Wielkopolska and Lubusz Voivodeship, particularly for treating the esophagus with the help of the Nd-Yag laser. Also, doctors were the first in the country to use lymph node biopsy to precisely assess the risks of metastases in melanoma, breast cancer, and colorectal cancer. In 1994, surgical treatment of neoplastic metastases in the lungs was performed for the first time in Poznan. Tomotherapy is also available for greater accuracy of the treatment process. Such a unique technique is present only in two country centers and has a high efficiency level. The modern Accuray CyberKnife device allows you to perform stereotaxic radiosurgery with millimeter accuracy and individually selected radiation doses. The calculation considers the best efficiency and the least harm to the body. In addition, doctors have extensive experience in teleradiotherapy (RTH) and brachytherapy (BTH) radiation therapy. Since 2008, Poznan Greater Poland Cancer Center has been offering a unique prostate cancer treatment with permanent implants, which is also only available at this center. The Contura balloon applicator is another type of brachytherapy that replaces weeks of in-hospital radiation. Using the Celsius TCS and BSD Medical device, hyperthermia allows you to supplement the primary therapy to reduce the risk of repeated relapses maximally. A large number of unique modern treatments makes Poznan Greater Poland Cancer Clinic an institution of European level of service. As a result, patients with cancer of the breast, digestive and urinary systems, lungs, and ENT organs can get a high chance of recovery and rehabilitation support.
