About the Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics and Mammology at Hospital Gummersbach Oberberg

The Department of Gynecology, Obstetrics and Mammology at the Hospital Gummersbach Oberberg provides the comprehensive diagnostics, conservative and surgical treatment of gynecological diseases. The department also specializes in the treatment of breast diseases, particularly, cancer, and obstetric care for expectant mothers. When treating cancers, the department's doctors are not limited to surgical interventions, as they use various combinations of chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone therapy, and antibody therapy. The service range is complemented by urinary incontinence treatment. In most cases, the department's doctors manage to solve serious gynecologic problems by means of sparing, minimally invasive interventions, which ensure the rapid recovery of the patients. The Chief Physician of the department is Dr. med. Anja Weishap.

Of particular interest to the department's gynecologists are women with cancers of the reproductive system. The department regularly treats cervical and uterine cancer, ovarian cancer, vulvar cancer, etc. To achieve the optimal treatment result, technical resources and highly-specialized personnel of the Cancer Center Oberberg are involved in the treatment process. As a rule, a complete cure of cancer requires surgery to remove tumor, as well as the use of additional therapeutic measures, including chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone therapy, etc. An effective treatment regimen is developed according to the results of individual examinations, with the involvement of oncologists, radiologists, specialists in radiation therapy and other doctors.

The department includes highly-specialized Breast Center, which provides the high-quality treatment of breast cancer in women. Up to 80% of breast operations are performed using organ-sparing surgical techniques, which allow the doctors to effectively remove the neoplasm and at the same time preserve the patient's own breast. At the advanced stages of cancer, when breast removal is inevitable, plastic surgeries are performed using rotational flaps. Such operations help a woman to restore her aesthetic appearance and regain self-confidence.

In addition, the department is one of the leading Maternity Hospitals in the region. More than 1,000 babies are born here annually. Pregnancy management, childbirth and postnatal care for mother and baby are carried out in accordance with the standardized clinical protocols of professional societies. The department's obstetricians have successful experience in managing high-risk and multiple pregnancies.
