About the department

The Department of Adult and Pediatric General Urology, Andrology and Urinary Incontinence Treatment at the Paracelsus Clinic Golzheim Duesseldorf offers the full range of services in these medical fields. The department specializes in the treatment of general urologic pathologies in men and boys, treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia, treatment of kidney stone disease, surgical treatment of kidney diseases, and treatment of impotence and urinary incontinence in men and women. The doctors have in their arsenal the very latest diagnostic equipment allowing for the provision of the most accurate diagnostics, which is the key to a successful treatment outcome. The therapeutic options cover both drug therapy with modern medications, sparing minimally invasive surgery, and classic open surgery.

The Chief Physician of the department is Prof. Dr. med. M.sc. Johannes Maria Wolff. The specialist has the tremendous experience, which he acquired at the prestigious university hospitals in Germany. He also regularly demonstrates high treatment success rates. He is a Fellow of the European Board of Urology (FEBU) and enjoys an excellent reputation not only in Germany but also in Europe.

In the field of general urology, the department’s medical team offers the effective treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia, kidney stone disease and inflammatory processes of the urinary tract. The tasks of doctors also include the treatment of children with urological diseases and malformations of the urinary tract and genital organs. In many cases, positive dynamics can be achieved using conservative methods, however, some clinical situations require surgical treatment, which may be carried out both on an inpatient and outpatient basis.

In addition, andrology is a key focus. Of particular interest is the treatment of impotence or infertility. The department performs sterilization procedures, as well as fertility restoration operations after vasectomy (vasovasoctomy). The intervention is carried out with the use of microsurgical techniques, which contributes to the rapid recovery of the patient and minimal pain. To treat male infertility, the department offers modern sperm extraction procedures, such as TESE (testicular sperm extraction) and MESA (microsurgical epididymal sperm aspiration). In addition, the doctors of the department specialize in the correction of penile curvature and other malformations, for example, urethral malformations, abnormal position of the testicles, etc. The department’s competence also includes medical care for age-related changes, for example, hormonal ones.

The treatment of urinary incontinence in men and women is carried out using the very latest medical advances in this field. The department’s doctors mostly have to deal with such forms of incontinence as stress urinary incontinence, imperative urinary incontinence, and mixed forms of incontinence. The doctors of the department also have excellent qualifications in the treatment of enuresis in children. The treatments for incontinence range from electrostimulation, Biofeedback, drug therapy, botulinum toxin A injection therapy to surgical methods, such as TVT or TOT procedures, laparoscopic colpopexy (Burch procedure) in women, sling surgery and artificial sphincter implantation in men.
