About the Department of Adult and Pediatric Urology at Marienhaus Hospital St. Elisabeth Neuwied

The Department of Adult and Pediatric Urology at the Marienhaus Hospital St. Elisabeth Neuwied offers the full range of high-precision diagnostics and effective treatment for women and men with kidney and urinary tract diseases, as well as for men with diseases of the reproductive system. The medical facility also treats children with pathologies of the kidneys, bladder, and ureters, as well as boys with malformations of the reproductive system. The department's team of urologists cooperates closely with radiology specialists, thanks to which patients can undergo all necessary imaging tests. In-house advanced laboratories are also available here for laboratory diagnostics. The key areas of the department's specialization include surgical treatment of tumors of the kidney, bladder, prostate, and external genitalia in men, minimally traumatic treatment of kidney stone disease, and conservative and surgical treatment of urinary incontinence in women, men, and children. Since 2019, the department's surgeons have been using a modern robot-assisted da Vinci®X surgical system, which ensures the most sparing surgical interventions and significantly lowers the risk of postoperative complications. Some minor interventions are performed on an outpatient basis, for example, repair of undescended testicles and surgery for inguinal hernias in children. The department's specialists are deservedly proud of their high treatment success rates, and the entire medical team is focused on personalized patient care. The Head Physician of the department is Prof. Dr. med. Carsten Maik Naumann.

The department's urologists have vast experience in prostate cancer treatment. This oncological disease is the most common among men, so the doctors at the medical facility are constantly introducing the very latest treatment methods into clinical practice, which allow them to cure even advanced cancers. Treatment tactics depend on the tumor size, cancer stage, the patient's age, and the patient's general health condition. The department's doctors have all the necessary diagnostic options, including imaging tests and biopsy procedures. It is worth noting that in 2022, the department received a state-of-the-art micro-ultrasound system for diagnosing prostate tumors, which allows obtaining high-resolution images of excellent quality. If doctors confirm the presence of a malignant tumor in a patient, the department's specialists proceed to develop a personalized treatment regimen. The first-line therapeutic measure for most patients is a surgical intervention. The department's urologists always give preference to minimally invasive techniques, and with appropriate clinical indications, they give priority to da Vinci robot-assisted surgery. Both before and after surgery, conservative methods such as chemotherapy, radiation therapy, targeted therapy, hormone therapy, and immunotherapy may be used.

Special attention deserves the use of the da Vinci®X surgical system in the department, which was introduced here in 2019. It is this type of surgical treatment that is today recognized as the most progressive, sparing, highly accurate, and, at the same time, highly effective. The department's specialists use the da Vinci®X surgical system to remove prostate, bladder, and kidney tumors. The operating principle of daVinci®X is based on the execution of commands given in real time by a specially trained surgeon, which the robotic device implements with the help of four manipulator arms with built-in miniature instruments and a camera. The surgeon fully controls the entire course of the operation using the da Vinci control panel, so spontaneous manipulations of the surgical system are excluded. The range of motion of the robotic arms is many times greater than the functionality of the human wrist, which allows the doctor to approach all anatomical structures virtually without damaging healthy tissues. Robot-assisted surgery also eliminates human factors, such as hand tremors. The daVinci®X surgical system is expensive equipment that is available only in the world's most progressive medical centers.

The department regularly admits patients with kidney stone disease. The specialists at the medical facility have deep knowledge of the diagnostics of kidney stone disease and use modern methods and technologies in their work to accurately determine the size, composition, and localization of concrements in the kidneys and bladder. These include ultrasound and X-ray methods, computed tomography, and advanced laboratory diagnostics. The department's doctors apply a comprehensive approach to the treatment of kidney stone disease. In the early stages, the department's specialists use only an individually elaborated drug therapy regimen and diet correction, while the advanced stages of the pathological process require the application of interventional methods for stone fragmentation. Patients with kidney stone disease mostly undergo endoscopic procedures such as percutaneous nephrolithopaxy and ureterorenoscopy. The department's specialists also pay due attention to the prevention of kidney stone disease, which aims to take measures to prevent the possible formation of stones in patients predisposed to this condition.

An important role in the department's clinical practice is given to the treatment of urinary incontinence in women, men, and children. The team of the department's doctors specializes in conservative and surgical treatment of the pathology. The first-line treatment is conservative therapy that includes drug therapy, individual exercise programs to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, biofeedback, electrical stimulation, and therapy with pessaries. Only if the above-mentioned therapeutic procedures fail do doctors make a decision to perform surgery. As for the surgical methods, the department's urologists perform TVT and TVT-O sling procedures, vaginosacropexy, and Burch colposuspension.

  • Minimally invasive and da Vinci robot-assisted surgery for urologic cancers
