About the department keyboard_arrow_down

The Department of Urology at the Academic Hospital Eichsfeld under the direction of Dr. med. Christian Weidemann offers the entire spectrum of surgical and conservative urology (except kidney transplantations). The focuses include function-preserving cancer surgery, laparoscopy (“keyhole surgery”), diagnosis and treatment of both male and female urinary incontinence, plastic and reconstructive surgery, as well as multimodal therapy for stones. Particular attention is paid to the treatment of benign and malignant diseases of the prostate.

The Department of Urology at the Academic Hospital Eichsfeld is the certified Counseling Center of the German Society for Urinary Incontinence. It also coordinates the interdisciplinary Pelvic Floor Center. Moreover, the Department of Urology is the Training Center of the Federal Medical Chamber of Thuringia. The chief physician, Dr. med. Christian Weidemann, has the authority to upgrade the skills of urologists (60 months) and in the drug treatment of cancer (12 months). The Department includes two sections with 53 beds and an interdisciplinary intensive care unit where patients can receive comprehensive and individual treatment. 

The Academic Hospital Eichsfeld also offers services in pediatric urology, whereas surgical procedures are mostly outpatient. If there is required inpatient treatment, one of the parents should stay with their child. Depending on the age of the child, surgical treatment and admission are carried out in the children's hospital in Heiligenstadt. The Department can involve experienced pediatricians and anesthesiologists to treat very young patients. When treating certain symptoms (e.g. enuresis), the Department cooperates with the Social Pediatric Center. The specialists of the Department will be happy to advise you within the framework of the pediatric urologic consultation.
