About the department

The Department of Surgical Gynecology at the Hospital Sachsenhausen - Academic Hospital of the University of Frankfurt am Main specializes in the surgical treatment of a wide range of gynecological diseases. A large number of operations for the treatment of benign and malignant diseases of the pelvic organs are carried out in a minimally invasive way by hysteroscopic or laparoscopic method. Having more than 25 years of experience in this field of medicine, the department is one of the leading centers of minimally invasive surgery both in the land of Hesse and throughout Germany. The head of the department is Dr. med. Philipp-Andreas Hessler.

Annually more than 2500 minimally invasive interventions are conducted in the department, and in the outpatient settings - more than 1000 operations per year. Particular attention is paid to surgical treatment of uterine myomas: more than 800 organ-preserving hysteroscopic and laparoscopic interventions (enucleation of fibroids), as well as more than 600 laparoscopic operations for the removal of the uterus (hysterectomy).

The medical team of the department also performs surgical treatment of lung and severe forms of endometriosis (in collaboration with minimally invasive surgeons), tumors of female reproductive organs (uterine cancer and cervical cancer).

Diagnosis is performed by using innovative imaging methods. Thanks to the application of "keyhole surgery" patients are provided with the most gentle treatment, short period of hospitalization and rapid recovery. In addition to surgical treatment, specialists also conduct conservative treatment of gynecological pathologies. The range of services is complemented by the diagnosis of infertility, for example, using fluoroscopy, laparoscopy with chromoperbtion.

The spectrum of services of the Department of Surgical Gynecology:

  • Diagnosis and individual consultations on the whole spectrum of available modern methods of surgical treatment
  • Diagnosis and treatment of unfulfilled desire to have a child (malformations, bleeding, polyps and uterine fibroids)
  • Diagnosis and treatment of benign and malignant tumors of fallopian tubes and ovaries, painful adhesions
  • Diagnosis (urodynamic studies) and treatment of uterine and bladder dysfunction, urinary incontinence (eg, laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy)
  • Diagnosis and treatment of myomas (organ-preserving interventions by enucleation of myomas, supracervical and total hysterectomy)
  • Diagnosis and treatment of all forms of endometriosis, including the one that affects the bladder or intestine (the so-called deep infiltrative endometriosis)
  • Diagnosis and (if possible) laparoscopic treatment of malignant diseases of the uterus (cancer of the uterus and cervix)
