The GIST Center Bern is the first and so far only center in Switzerland for the treatment of gastrointestinal stromal tumors.

GISTs are very rare, malignant tumors that arise from cells in the gastrointestinal tract. Due to their cell origin, they belong to the group of soft tissue tumors (sarcomas). GISTs occur exclusively in the abdominal cavity.

If a GIST is suspected, we will immediately carry out all necessary tests, including a tissue sample. Once the diagnosis has been confirmed, a team of experienced tumor experts will create your individual treatment concept and discuss it with you in detail.

We do everything we can to offer our patients the best possible therapy based on the latest scientific findings and to keep the undesirable effects of the treatment to the absolute minimum. The patients are closely cared for by our GIST specialists.

We are happy to support you and your loved ones during this time of uncertainty.
