Expert medical care at hospitals and rehabilitation clinics

Professor Ernst Spät-Schwalbe: Personalised treatment and excellent care of cancer patients

Oncological diseases are on the increase as a result of changing lifestyles and demographics and could soon replace heart disease as the most common cause of death in humans.

At the Vivantes Hospital in Spandau for Internal Medicine, Oncology, Haematology and Palliative Medicine, highly qualified doctors treat almost 2,000 cancer patients every year; a total of around 14,000 are treated across the entire Vivantes network. Highly qualified staff provide end-to-end care from diagnosis and therapy to aftercare and rehabilitation. Working together as an interdisciplinary team plays an important part in this.

Interdisciplinary collaboration – the key to a successful outcome

The hospital focuses on diagnosing and treating patients suffering from cancer and other diseases of the digestive system. In addition to these specialisms, the clinic also treats other internal illnesses. All required specialists including oncologists, surgeons, radiotherapists, radiologists and nuclear medicine technologists work closely together in interdisciplinary tumour conferences. This enables an optimum treatment plan to be drawn up and put into practice for each patient. Through the use of systemic (chemotherapy) and localised therapies such as radio frequency ablation and chemoembolisation, patients with malignant tumours can either be cured or given palliative care to maintain as high a quality of life as possible.

Senior Consultant Professor Ernst Späth-Schwalbe, a world-renowned expert, has headed up the Department for Haematology, Oncology, Gastroenterology and Palliative Medicine at the Vivantes Hospital in Spandau, Berlin, since 2001. In addition to his work at the hospital, he has also been president of the Berlin Tumour Centre and is the spokesman for the Vivantes North Oncological Centre.

Professor Späth-Schwalbe stresses that “all our patients with cancer, regardless of which stage this is at, receive treatment and care tailored to their individual needs.”

Great care is taken to make the hospital a place where people feel comfortable and secure. Our medical team includes nurses who are highly specialised and extremely dedicated and have many years of experience looking after seriously ill patients. Psycho-oncological support is provided by a specially trained psychologist. A whole team of physiotherapists, occupational therapists and dieticians is on hand to offer support during a course of treatment coordinated to include both outpatient and inpatient care.

Palliative medicine

Particular emphasis is given to the early integration of palliative medicine in the treatment of patients with advanced tumours. It is the job of the palliative care unit to relieve symptoms that are brought on by advanced and incurable tumourrelated illnesses. The primary objective of the treatment is to enable patients to return to a familiar environment as free of pain and discomfort as possible. We never lose sight of the individual and all the desires, suffering, hopes and fears that they carry with them.

Ground-breaking organisation and ongoing development

In 2007 the Oncological Centre in Berlin became the first to be certified by the German Society for Haematology and Oncology and was accredited as a “designated centre of integrated oncology and palliative care” by the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO). Standards in diagnosis and therapy are continually updated to reflect advancements in medical science and innovative developments. To further this goal, the clinic participates in clinical trials evaluating the latest oncological treatments.

Zwinger Palace

O Chateau de Versailles de Dresden

O Zwinger Palace é um dos melhores exemplos da arquitetura barroca tardia na Alemanha. Construído entre 1710 e 1728 pelo arquiteto Pöppelmann, o Palácio Zwinger foi usado para grandes festas e torneios. Hoje, o complexo barroco de pavilhões, galerias e pátios interiores é a casa de grandes museus e obras. A Madonna Sistina de Rafael você encontrará lá. O acervo de Porcelana tambem é belíssimo. O Arsenal também é muito interessante se você curte trajes e armas. Se você não quiser entrar em nenhum museu, vá pelo menos para andar pelos jardins e admirar o "Kronentor", que é o portão com a coroa.

Asisi Panometer

Deesden : 1945

Setenta anos depois do bombardeio de Dresden, na Segunda Guerra Mundial, um panorama de 360 ​​graus que mostra a cidade destruída foi revelado na cidade. O artista Yadegar Asisi criou uma imagem circular de 100 metros de largura e 30 metros de altura que mostra Dresden após os devastadores ataques aéreos dos aliados. Entre 13-15 fevereiro de 1945, apenas alguns meses antes do fim da guerra, os bombardeiros britânicos e norte-americanos destruíram mais de 90 por cento do centro histórico da cidade, matando cerca de 25.000 pessoas. Mais de 3.900 toneladas de bombas de alto poder explosivo e dispositivos incendiários dizimaram marcos importantes do barroco em uma cidade que é considerada "a Florença do Elba". O panorama, Dresden: 1945, fica aberto de 24 de Janeiro à 31 de maio de 2015, no gasômetro Panometer. http://www.asisi.de/en/panoramas/dresden-1945/photo-gallery.html

Frauenkirche - Church of Our Lady

A Lady de Dresden

A Igreja da Nossa Senhora de Dresden é um espetáculo de linda. É a igreja que vai te impactar no primeiro minuto que você entrar e ver uma igreja branca, super luminada. Se há um lugar cuja história pode mover-lo às lágrimas, será n'a Igreja de Nossa Senhora. Durante a Segunda Guerra Mundial, a igreja foi bombardeada e ficou em escombros até 1994, quando um programa de restauração foi iniciado. Hoje, é um lembrete dos dias antes da guerra e um dos lugares que você vai ter uma história imparcial sobre a Segunda Guerra Mundial.

Christmas Markets in Cologne

Christmas in Germany

Christmas may be over, but 11 months from now the season will be upon us and you should spend 2015 in Germany! Why? The Christmas season is in Germany is like no other. There is no other place in the world where you can experience countless, and famous, Christmas markets that will without a doubt, put you in the holiday spirit. While the markets are open all day, it’s best to visit at night. Many towns across Germany have decorated the streets and market squares with evergreen-lined stalls, twinkling lights and religious (and not so religious) statues to kick off the holiday season as festively as possible. If you are a foreigner in Germany at this time of year, it's difficult to miss home when Germany puts on an excellent show at Christmas time. No matter what German city you are in, you can find families and friends of all ages, walking around shopping for unique and traditional gifts, sipping on mulled wine and indulging in delicious German food. You will hear laughter amongst the Christmas carols that will make you forget about your toes and fingers tingling from the cold temperature at this time of year. It’s truly a traditional delight for all of the senses. No trip to the German Christmas markets is complete without trying a class of glühwein, which is a combinations of red wine, spices and sugar. This traditional drink will keep you cozy and happy. Hungry? No problem! There are many stalls that sell traditional German Christmas Market food and snacks for you to enjoy such as bratwurst, mutzen, schmachtlappen and reibekuchen. In a world where Christmas present shopping consists of the latest technology and thoughtless gift certificates, it’s nice to be able to find traditional hand carved gifts at several stalls. Not to mention, mountains of oranges and nuts, the original gift that St. Nicholas gave to people hundreds of years ago at this time of year. While many countries around the world celebrate Christmas, no other place does it like Germany. So, if you feel that this time of year has been lacking in holiday spirit, take a trip over to this European country and be reminded what Christmas time is all about.

Canadians First Time at a Traditional Co-ed Spa

Visiting a co-ed spa was a foreign concept to me, being born and raised in Canada. Nudity in my culture is reserved for your own home where some have issues looking at themselves in the mirror. The gym change room is another publicly acceptable nude room, many of us have mastered the art of undressing by using a towel without exposing our private parts. My wife, Kristen, and I walked into that spa and let go of our Canadian mentalities. I undressed in the co-ed change room next to a woman in her 60s. She had kind eyes, a warm smile and no knowledge of nude shame as she stripped down without embarrassment. Kristen and I entered the spa, dropped our towels and were liberated, free for all to gaze upon! There were adults of all ages and body type, casually conversing as if being nude was more comfortable than being clothed. I had to constantly remind myself that people are not judgemental of bodies here, something I have never experienced in North America. Nudity is very much a part of the culture here. This German spa was the first place I have experienced harmony and equality among class, age, sex. Nobody knows whether you walked in with an Armani suit or a ripped t-shirt, you are all equal, beautiful and free. I immediately felt unjudged and part of the community. The architecture and decor of the spa was heavenly. Stone tiles lead the way to a large open room with lounging chairs and a marble swimming pool. The ambiance is zen, with only the sound of calm conversations and light background music. Buddha heads, candles, bamboo designs and waterfalls decorate the many rooms with relaxation and beauty. The outdoor rooftop contained hot tubs and saunas to keep you warm and steamy as well as cold pools and a bucket of snow used to cool your body down before jumping back into the hot tub. I left with my body relaxed, my skin clean, and my mind at peace. I learned that the human body is a beautiful gift which should be appreciated and accepted. Nudity is our original state and should be more widely accepted.

Herrenhauser Gärten Grotto

Niki the St.-Phalle at her best

A couple of years ago a very wealthy friend of mine, who owns an work of art by French artist Niki de St.-Phalle, told me included Hannover in a trip to Europe just to see Nikki's art in town. I had totally forgotten this until I came to Hannover and found out that Niki's works are all over the place. There are three Nanas in the Sculpture Mile downtown and an ancient grotto at the Herrenhauser Gardens was redone by Niki, who filled with her Nanas, a colorful Ganesha and a myriad of kaleidoscopic mirrors. Before her death, she donated her private collection to Hannover's Sprengel Museum, and will appear in the new wing due to open late in 2016.

Elbphilarmonie

The next big thing

Due to open in 2017, the Elbphilarmonie is a ~very~ controversial project among Hamburg's taxpayers. But its sheer originality and generous public spaces will definitely put Hamburg on the map of people who've never thought of visiting this vibrant town. The building will contain three concert halls, two hotels, apartments, shops and a public square between the base of the bulding (a former wharehouse) and the new, Gaudí-esque top. You can count on Hamburg becoming as popular with foreign travelers as it is among German visitors.
