The clinic specialises in the treatment of oncological cardiological, neurological and orthopaedic diseases. Doctors successfully combine treatment with scientific research, exchange experience and invite specialists from the USA and Germany, Belgium and Denmark for internships. More than 50% of foreign patients who come to Italy are sent here for therapy.
Humanitas consists of 5 hospitals and 18 medical centres throughout Italy. Its doctors constantly increase the level of their knowledge with the help of the scientific basis and wide opportunities.
It is worth being treated in Italy, because medicine is accompanied by scientific research here, sometimes ahead of Germany. Especially when it comes to paediatric orthopaedics. It is interesting that Italian football players of the Major League undergo diagnostics, treatment and rehabilitation in the departments of the clinic.

Istituto Clinico Humanitas: International Awards and Achievements
Cancer Centre of the Istituto Clinico Humanitas
Cancer Center is formed by a team of professionals, interdisciplinary skills and experience in individualised therapy, the latest scientific research. In oncology, together with traditional methods, immunotherapy is successfully used. The clinic produces its own effective medications.
There is a department that focuses on the treatment of the rarest types of cancer, including NET (neuroendocrine tumors). It is important that specialists are able to diagnose and treat diseases that CIS oncologists have not even heard of, which means that the chances of recovery increase significantly.
During diagnostics, a multidisciplinary approach is used: a whole team of professionals works on a specific case, choosing the best individual method of therapy, taking into account the associated problems and pathologies. It may include: a surgeon, an oncologist, a radiologist, a pathologist, a nuclear medicine specialist, an anesthesiologist — and this is not a complete list of specialists.
It's worth mentioning that Italian doctors also treat cancer of the hepatobiliary system. Neither Germany nor the USA took on such a case.

The Centre has the necessary equipment to perform surgeries at the highest professional level. The O-Arm neuronavigation system with simultaneous CT scanning allows you to visualize the spine and the manipulations performed on it directly during the operation. That is, it allows you to conduct the most accurate study in real time, specifies the place of the operated zone to millimetre. This reduces the time of the intervention, reduces the risk of bleeding and the need for re-manipulation, and most importantly, guarantees high accuracy in the installation of prostheses.
