Personalized care, holistic approach, and from a single source
A cancer diagnosis always affects your entire being and social environment. At the Center for Integrative Oncology (CIO), located in Zurich, Richterswil, and Glarus, we provide you with comprehensive and holistic care that is tailored to your individual situation.
We combine various approaches and processes of academic and complementary medicine. Our many years of experience have shown that this combination significantly improves treatment results and quality of life.
From a single source
Our doctors, nurses, and therapists are trained in both academic as well as complementary medicine. This ensures that you receive the best combination of therapies for your individual situation.
We support you throughout all phases of treatment: from the initial diagnosis and individual therapy steps to aftercare. Today, many cancers can be successfully treated due to major advances in medicine. In situations where this is no longer possible, we provide intensive outpatient and inpatient care within the context of palliative medicine.
Our goal, in particular, is that you, as a cancer patient, continue to be in a position to remain active. Self determination and activating our own capabilities and strengths are important elements in this.
A consultation for a second opinion is of special importance to us. We will gladly advise you on conventional therapies as well as complementary treatment options with respect to your individual situation.
We are equipped with all essential medical and laboratory examination devices and processes that are important in cancer treatment:
Complete laboratory diagnostics including specialized blood and bone marrow tests
X-ray diagnostics and ultrasound
Computer tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance tomography (MRI)
Echocardiography (heart ultrasound)
Endoscopy (upper and lower GI tract) and bronchoscopy (endoscopy of lungs)
