Local Surface Hyperthermia
In addition to the treatment with Whole-Body-Hyperthermia (WBO) and Local Hyperthermia we offer our patient's the treatment with Local Surface Hyperthermia.
This therapy method is especially suited for superficial tumors such as skin cancers, superficial lymphnodes and metastases of the skin and / or the muscles of different primary tumors (e.g. Malignant melanoma, superficial metastases of the Breast).
For the Local Surface Hyperthermia the heat is generated with a water-filtered infrared radiation source (infrared A) which is able to penetrate into the tissue to a depth of around one inch ( up to 2 cm). The whole procedure takes one hour.
We often make Local Surface Hyperthermia in combination with chemotherapy or immune-therapy to increase the effectiveness of the therapy.
The Local Surface Hypethermia is a save, non-invasive therapy without harmfull sideeffects.
