Of particular interest to the department's doctors is gynecologic oncology. The specialization covers the treatment of vaginal vulvar, cervical, endometrial, ovarian malignancies. In addition to standard treatment regimens and innovative methods, psycho-oncological care and social support are offered. Moreover, all the patients have the opportunity to participate in clinical trials of new drugs and treatment methods.
The doctors of general gynecology deal with the treatment of endometriosis and uterine fibroids, as well as with the diagnostics of causes of infertility in women. The department also has successful experience in the treatment of vaginal, uterine prolapse and urinary incontinence. All modern medical, conservative and surgical techniques (depending on specific clinical indications) are available for the treatment of urinary incontinence. The surgical techniques include not only classic vaginal interventions, but also minimally invasive reconstruction techniques using special meshes.
The key focus of clinical practice is also the treatment of benign and malignant pathologies of the mammary gland (within the specialized center certified by the German Cancer Society). If breast cancer is suspected, the patient will be prescribed all the necessary examinations to determine the stage of the disease. The clinical case will be reviewed at the tumor board and the doctors will develop the most effective treatment tactics. The spectrum of treatment methods for breast cancer includes systemic therapy (chemotherapy and hormone therapy), radiation therapy, surgical treatment, axillary lymph node dissection and reconstructive interventions after mastectomy.
The obstetricians and specialists in perinatal medicine provide patients with integrated pregnancy management, safe delivery and postpartum care. The specialists also have excellent qualifications in the management of multiple pregnancies, high-risk pregnancies (Level I Perinatal Center). To monitor the course of pregnancy, the doctors use all modern methods of perinatal diagnostics, in particular ultrasound examinations the equipment of very latest generation (in accordance with the requirements of the German Society of Ultrasound in Medicine, DEGUM). Thus, many disorders can be detected at the stage of intrauterine development, which allows the doctor to eliminate them quickly and effectively.
