Experience modern therapy methods

Computer-assisted treatment allows more humane and more precise methods to be used. This is particularly important in surgical treatment and methods for treating cancer. In emergency medicine, computers make it possible to provide medical assistance faster, improving a patient’s chances of survival. The function of  damaged organs can be supported with computer technology and sometimes even replaced, increasingly on a permanent basis.
