Hyperthermia Center

We are a certified Hyperthermia-Center.

We treat your immune weakness, joint pain as well as tumors in the hyperthermia center: As a preparation and accompanying therapy for the operation, chemo and radiation therapy as well as palliative.

The hyperthermia treatment (also called thermo therapy) can be complemented by a oxygen and/or infusion therapy, acupuncture, Chinesephyto-therapy, lymph drainage and various medical massages such as the Chinese Tuina massage.

Hyperthermia can be also applied for borreliosis or post-lyme disease.

Many joint pains can be successfully treated with hyperthermia. These include e.g.:

  • Rheumatic and inflamed joint illnesses with and without (painful) limited functionality
  • Tennis arm
  • Epicondylitis
  • Shoulder pain with e.g. so called "frozen shoulder"
  • Knee conditions

These conditions can be treated by the loco regional electro-hyperthermia as well as the whole body hyperthermia.

Loco Regional and Whole Body Hyperthermia

Hyperthermia (deep hyperthermia) can be applied to a wide range of tumors and metastasis. It is especially used against:   

  • Pancreatic cancer
  • Soft tissue tumors
  • Bladder carcinoma
  • Bronchial carcinoma
  • Breast cancer
  • Colon cancer
  • Ovarian cancer
  • Cervical cancer
  • Glioblastoma
  • Skin cancer
  • Brain tumor
  • Testicular carcinoma
  • Hodgkin- and Non-Hodgkin lymphoma
  • Colorectal carcinoma
  • Head-neck tumors
  • Liver metastasis
  • Lung cancer
  • Lymph gland cancer
  • Malign melanoma
  • Mamma carcinoma
  • Esophageal cancer
  • Ovarial carcinoma
  • Pancreas carcinoma
  • Mesothelioma
  • Prostate carcinoma
  • Rectum carcinoma
  • Esophagus cancer
  • Soft tissue sarcoma
  • Cervical carcinoma

Hyperthermia has a broad indicator range for therapy resistant illnesses e.g.:

  • Borreliosis and Post-Lyme-Disease
  • Rheumatic illnesses
  • Chronic back pain – ischialgia
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Arthritis
  • Neuralgia
  • Bronchial asthma
  • Neurodermatitis
  • Migraine
  • Arterial hypertonia
  • Bekhterev’s disease
  • and many more

Hyperthermia as Immune Therapy

The effects of hyperthermia on biological structures are multiple and complex. Besides the technology, they are dependent on the length of application, the warm-up period, the form, kind and size of the tissue, the blood flow and the homogeneity and the temperature distribution. It involves the denaturation of cellular and sub-cellular elements:

  • Direct tumor necrosis through heat impact
  • Nutrient impoverishment of the tumor tissue
  • Breaking down the chemo and radiation resistance
  • Sensitivity for radiation and chemo therapy (synergistic effect)
  • Pain reduction
  • Increasing the quality of life

Hyperthermia in addition to radiation therapy:

Various mechanisms are responsible for the additive effect of hyperthermia in combination with radiation therapy. Hyperthermia can also increase the blood flow which enhances the oxygenation of the tissue. This results in an increased radiation sensitivity. In vivo studies have shown that the effect of radiation therapy is increased by a factor of 1,2 to 5 with hyperthermia.

Due to the immunologically stimulating effect and the pinpoint attack on cancerous tissue, hyperthermia can be used on a wide range of chronic illnesses. This reaches from the treatment of skin diseases, such as neurodermatitis or dandruff, to rheumatic illnesses, high blood pressure and Burn-out syndrome.
