Professor Werner Scheithauer

As a medical specialist for internal medicine, gastroenterology and haemato-oncology, I can offer my patients a broad spectrum of medical services in terms of diagnosis, prevention and treatment of various disorders. I have specialized in the therapeutic management of malignant tumors, especially those of the digestive tract. My knowhow comprises definition of the best possible internal-oncological treatment strategy in agreement with the most recent international standards.

In order to work out an optimal individual treatment plan, I usually discuss my patients and their medical findings (of course, only if they agree) with recognized experts for abdominal surgery, radiology, radio-oncology and pathology. The best treatment decisions, in fact, are being made by an interdisciplinary team of medical experts.

If an optimal internal-oncological treatment strategy is
warranted, I will inform you about all available treatment options:

  • Chemotherapy – before, after or instead of a surgical intervention
  • Immunotherapy
  • Possible treatment alternatives
  • Effective concomitant medications to minimize eventual side effects, and effective treatment of tumor-related symptoms like abdominal pain, loss of appetite, diarrhea, constipation and weight-loss

With great pleasure I will also inform you about cancer prevention, -risk factors, and -screening options. In case of a successfully completed anticancer treatment, I will provide you with details of an optimal follow-up program in order to minimize the risk of recurrence.

My consulting room is located in the “Ordinationszentrum” of the Private Clinic Sanatorium Doebling with the advantage of having immediate access to the hospitals infrastructure:
Laboratory, a modern state-of-the-art radiology department, endoscopy, and ordinations of other medical specialists.

I assure you that I will always take me sufficient time to answer your questions and satisfy your individual wishes and concerns. Patient satisfaction is one of my highest priorities.
