2. Charité CyberKnife Center
Augustenburger Platz 1
The Charité CyberKnife Center was the first CyberKnife system installed in a university hospital in Germany. The CyberKnife, an image-guided robot that allows targeted tumor radiation, is one of the most modern oncological technologies. The combination of image guidance and a robotguided linear accelerator guarantees highest precision in radiosurgery.
An interdisciplinary tumor board assesses each patient and decides whether the CyberKnife is a suitable option. If patient and clinical experts opt for the CyberKnife the procedure is planned on the basis of CT scans. Depending on the size and complexity of the tumor, the entirely painless CyberKnife intervention takes 30 to 90 minutes. The patient can leave the Center on the same day.
The Charité CyberKnife Center is located at Campus Virchow-Klinikum and is headed jointly by Professor Dr. Volker Budach, Department of Radiation Oncology and Radiotherapy, and Professor Dr. Peter Vajkoczy (Department of Neurosurgery). Their team includes radiation therapists, neurosurgeons and medicals physicists.
Temos Conference particpants are invited to a non-public guided tour through Charité CyberKnife Center having the opportunity to learn more about the technique and treatment options.

3. German Heart Center Berlin
Augustenburger Platz 1
The Deutsches Herzzentrum Berlin (DHZB) is a tertiary care hospital for diseases of the heart and circulatory system. It is one of the largest cardiac centers in Germany.
The center offers cardiological and surgical treatment for all diseases of the heart and blood vessels at the highest possible level of professional and technical expertise. Operations include bypasses, aortic procedures and the surgical treatment of heart valve disease and heart rhythm disturbances. Whenever it is possible and suited to the individual patient, minimally invasive surgical methods (so-called key-hole surgery) are applied.
Department of Congenital Heart Disease – Pediatric Cardiology and the Department of Congenital Heart Surgery and Pediatric Heart Surgery together form one of the main European centers for the treatment of children, teenagers and adults with congenital heart defects. Each year independent assessment bodies have attested to the center’s highest possible quality standards.
The center has performed over 2300 heart and heart/lung transplantations since its inception in 1986, the DHZB is also one of Germany’s most important sites for transplantation. Further, it provides one of the largest programs for mechanical circulatory support. These implantable pumps enable patients with terminal heart disease to survive the waiting time for a donor organ; they can also be an alternative to transplantation.
Thanks to state-of-the art technical equipment and close interdisciplinary cooperation, the team of experienced specialists at the DHZB is every day setting the highest standards in therapy, care and research. At the same time, it is never forgotten that a vital aspect of cardiac medicine is human warmth.
