About the department

The Department of Urology at the Helios Hospital Berlin-Buch offers the full range of diagnostics and treatment in this ​​medical field. The department's doctors have excellent qualifications in the treatment of diseases of the kidneys, urinary tract and reproductive organs in men. Of particular interest is the treatment of malignant urological neoplasms, which include prostate cancer, testicular cancer, kidney and bladder cancer. The department has in its arsenal many effective conservative and surgical treatment techniques, which can fully restore men's health. The department is headed by Prof. Dr. med. Mark Schrader.

The department regularly demonstrates excellent results in the treatment of prostate cancer, testicular cancer, penile cancer, kidney cancer and bladder cancer. To fight against these pathologies, the doctors use the very latest endourological and minimally invasive procedures. Such interventions are sparing and guarantee a speedy recovery of the patient, minimal pain and a low risk of postoperative complications. The surgical treatment is often combined with drug therapy. In addition to the primary treatment of urological tumors, the department's doctors carry out chemotherapy and cytokine therapy for the advanced stages of cancer or relapses. The patients with prostate cancer metastasis spread to the bones can undergo palliative radionuclide therapy (in collaboration with the Department of Nuclear Medicine). If necessary, testicular tumor removal can be followed by testicular prosthetic surgery. It is worth noting that the department is recognized as the National Center for the Second Opinion in Testicular Tumors.

The therapeutic offer also includes the treatment of benign diseases of the male genitourinary system. The doctors have special competence in the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia, kidney stone disease and urethral stricture. If possible, the specialists are trying to solve the problem using innovative drugs. If drug therapy does not give the desired result, sparing endourological and minimally invasive procedures can be performed.

The scope of tasks of the department's urologists also includes the treatment of andrological problems in men. These include erectile dysfunction, penile curvature, varicocele, prostatitis, etc. In addition, the department holds special consultations for older men.
