About the department
The Department of Adult and Pediatric Urology at the Leverkusen Clinic offers the full range of diagnostic procedures, as well as conservative and surgical treatment of diseases of the kidneys, adrenal glands, ureters, bladder, prostate gland and male reproductive organs. The department also treats diseases of the genitourinary system in young patients. The department's specialists have rich experience in the treatment of erectile dysfunction and urinary incontinence. The department belongs to the leading Urology Centers in Germany with high treatment success rates. The department is headed by PD Dr. med. Daniel Porres. The doctor is a world-famous expert in robotic-assisted urologic surgery.
The department is a certified Prostate Center. The main focus is on the minimally invasive removal of the prostate using da Vinci Surgical System, modern treatment methods for benign prostatic hyperplasia and prostate cancer.
The department's doctors are highly qualified in the treatment of prostate cancer. The department has various biopsy methods, which allows the doctors to sample the prostate tissue from various loci (up to 12 points). This method is as accurate as possible and is characterized by low prostate traumatization. A prerequisite for the successful treatment of cancers is the cooperation of doctors from related fields, and therefore all treatment programs are developed at special interdisciplinary tumor boards, taking into account the opinions of the necessary specialists. In most cases, the treatment regimen includes surgery, chemotherapy and innovative radiation methods, including brachytherapy.
The clinical practice mostly involves the use of minimally invasive operations. Nowadays, the department's doctors carry out such interventions in those clinical cases, which until recently required extensive open surgery. In addition, the department widely uses laser technologies, such as Greenlight laser therapy.
The department's urologists also offer the comprehensive treatment for urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse in women and men. If necessary, abdominal surgeons, gynecologists and physiotherapists are involved in the therapeutic process.
The department also offers top-class services in pediatric urology. The pediatric urologists mostly perform operations to correct congenital malformations of the genitourinary system, for example, malformations of the ureters, hypospadias, epispadias, undescended testes, phimosis. In addition, the common diagnosis in children is enuresis.
