The best possible care for tumour patients
Dr Räto Thomas Strebel MD is a renowned specialist, particularly when it comes to the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer. He has many years of experience in performing radical prostatectomies. Thanks to the Da Vinci Xi surgical robot, he can perform this intervention in a gentle and minimally invasive manner in Graubünden. In addition to surgical treatment, other treatments such as chemotherapy, radiation, or hormone therapy are performed on site. Dr Strebel places a high value on personal and patient-orientated treatment. In order to provide tumour patients with the best possible treatment, each case is discussed by the multi-disciplinary tumour board.
Prostate cancer – the third deadliest form of cancer in men!
Prostate cancer is the most frequent form of cancer in men. After colo-rectal and lung cancer, it is the second leading cause of death for men in Switzerland. Three out of every 100 men die from this disease. Therefore, prostate cancer should not be underestimated, particularly as the symptoms often go unnoticed in the early stages.
Graubünden – Urological Clinic at the highest technical level
The Urological Clinic at the Cantonal Hospital of Graubünden features a broad spectrum of diagnostic and therapeutic options in the context of neurological syndromes. Since 2009, Dr Strebel and his team have been working with the Da Vinci surgical robot. With the help of this mechanical support, surgical interventions – especially in the prostate area – can be performed on the smallest of areas and with the highest possible precision. Every year, Dr Strebel and his colleagues perform between 80 and 120 prostatectomies. Since 2015, the Cantonal Hospital of Graubünden has featured the latest generation of surgical robots. Dr Strebel works at the forefront of science and technology and is therefore a member of our specialist team.
