About the department

The Department of Gynecology, Gynecologic Oncology, Urogynecology, Mammology and Obstetrics at the Hospital Neuperlach Munich offers high-quality diagnostics and treatment of diseases of the female genitalia, breast, as well as pelvic organ prolapse and urinary incontinence. In addition, the ​​department's competence includes the provision of comprehensive obstetric services for the management of pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum care. More than 1,300 babies are born in the department every year. The department is part of a certified Cancer Center, and therefore it has all the necessary resources to effectively treat oncological diseases of the female reproductive system. The treatment of malignancies of the female genital organs and breast is of particular interest to the department's doctors. The work of specialists is based on an individual approach to each patient and on the use of modern sparing therapeutic methods to restore women's health. Cancer patients are offered support of professional psychologists, while gynecologists devote a sufficient amount of time to personal communication with patients, which has a positive impact on the treatment process. The Chief Physician of the department is Prof. Dr. med. Christoph Scholz.

The department's medical team has extensive clinical experience in gynecologic oncology. The medical facility successfully treats uterine, cervical, ovarian, vulvar and vaginal cancers. During the initial consultation, the gynecologist studies the patient's medical history and listens to her complaints, after which he appoints her the necessary set of diagnostic examinations. If cervical cancer is suspected in a woman, she will undergo a Pap test, colposcopy and biopsy, MRI or CT scanning. If ovarian cancer is suspected, the patient has to undergo an ultrasound scanning, tumor marker test and such additional examinations as gastroscopy and colonoscopy, CT and MRI, if required. If the diagnostic results confirm cancer, then the next step in the medical program is the development of an optimal treatment regimen. The treatment tactics are carefully thought out during an interdisciplinary tumor board with the participation of gynecologists, oncologists, radiation therapists, chemotherapists, radiologists and other specialists. All therapeutic measures comply with the current clinical protocols and requirements of the German Cancer Society. In most cases, gynecologic cancer treatment is based on surgical resection of the tumor. The department's specialists always give preference to sparing minimally invasive interventions, while radical surgery on the female reproductive organs are performed only in case of advanced stages of oncology, when complete destruction of a malignant tumor requires the removal of the uterus, ovaries, etc. The surgical resection is often complemented by such conservative treatments as chemotherapy, radiation therapy, antibody therapy, hormone therapy and other therapies. When treating cancer in women of childbearing age, the department's gynecologists select a treatment that will not only cure cancer, but also give a woman the opportunity to feel the joy of motherhood in the future. All patients suffering from cancer receive competent psychological care, since such a diagnosis often causes stress and provokes the development of depressive conditions.

The department's mammologists deal with the diagnostics and treatment of breast cancer, which today is one of the most common types of oncology in women. At the initial consultation, the patient tells the doctor about her complaints, menstrual cycle, etc. Then the doctor palpates the breast and prescribes the necessary diagnostic examinations – mammography and ultrasound scanning. In rare cases, MRI may be required. If the doctors identify suspicious breast growths, the patient will also undergo a punch biopsy. The first-line treatment for breast cancer is surgery to remove the malignant tumor. With the progression of the pathology, a radical mastectomy (total breast removal) may be required. In such cases, plastic surgery for breast reconstruction is additionally performed to restore its aesthetic appearance. However, surgery does not always completely cure cancer. Depending on the individual clinical indications, the operation can be complemented by chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormonal therapy, antibody therapy and other treatments. Psychological care is also an integral part of the therapeutic process.

The team of the department's obstetricians takes care of the normal course of pregnancy, successful childbirth, as well as postnatal care for the mother and baby. The department has advanced ultrasound equipment for monitoring the course of pregnancy and detecting the slightest changes either in the body of the expectant mother or in the development of the fetus. The department's specialists make every effort to make childbirth as safe as possible. The department offers both natural childbirth and C-section. Whenever possible, obstetricians give preference to natural childbirth. To relieve pain in women during childbirth, the specialists use both classical and alternative methods for pain management, including homeopathy, acupuncture, aromatherapy. The department has three delivery rooms equipped according to the latest medical standards and allow the woman to give birth to a child in any position convenient for her, including in the water.
