The service spectrum comprises all areas of conservative and surgical urology:

Urologic oncology

  • Kidney tumor: radical and organ-preserving renal tumor surgery
  • Bladder tumor: radical cystectomy (nerve-sparing surgery in female and male patients) with continent (i.e. orthotopic ileal neobladder, continent pouches) and incontinent (i.e. conduit) urinary diversions
  • Prostate cancer: radical prostatectomy (potency-preserving)
  • Testicular cancer: testis-sparing surgery in selected cases and retroperitoneal lymph node dissection
  • Chemotherapy: all standard chemotherapy and immunotherapy protocols for urologic
  • malignancies and additional new drugs within clinical trials

Reconstructive Urology

  • Ureter replacement
  • Bladder replacement
  • Partial urethral replacement
  • Penile prosthesis implantation
  • Artificial urinary sphincter
  • Kidney pelvis-plasty

Urogynecology

  • Surgical treatment of urinary incontinence (i.e. fascial slingplasty, TVT, TOT, Burch colposuspension)

Kidney Stone Disease

  • Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL)
  • Semi-rigid and flexible ureteroscopy (URS/ RIRS)
  • Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PNL and Mini-PNL = „keyhole surgery for kidney stones“)
  • Open surgery for stone removal

Robotic laparoscopy da Vinci®
