FRIEDRICH DOUWES, M.D. was born in Germany and received his M.D. Degree from University Marburg, Zurich, Heidelberg in 1962. He then went to the United States and completed an Internship from Philadelphia General Hospital in 1967 and a Fellowship in Hematology & Oncology from Hahnemann University in 1970.
Dr. Douwes returned to Germany and for almost 10 years he was on the staff at the University Hospital of Göttingen Medical Department as the Senior Physician in the Oncology Department. He published several publications pertaining to biological and immunological problems of tumors.
Not satisfied with the clinical results attained as an Orthodox Oncologist, he began to integrate alternative methods into his daily work. He founded the first self-help group and the first Psych-Oncological Department after he became Medical Director at the Sonnenburg Hospital in 1980, which is one of the largest cancer hospitals in Germany
Between 1981 and 1987, Dr. Douwes completed his integrative cancer concept, a synthesis of conventional and complementary cancer therapies. In 1991, he started his own cancer hospital called St. George Hospital in Bad Aibling, which features Hyperthermia, Immuno-Therapy and Electro-Therapy as cancer treatments.
St. George Hospital with 16 physicians on staff treats around 5,000 cancer patients per year. Patients from all over the world visit Dr. Douwes Interdisciplinary Center for Oncology for treatment. Many have received remarkable results in all types of advanced cancer.
