Diseases of the urinary system affect people of both genders and may be detected at any age. The most common among urinary pathologies are bladder and kidney infections, enlarged prostate and prostate cancer in men, kidney stones and urinary incontinence. In Germany, the treatment of urological pathologies is carried out at specialized urological centers or at large university hospitals with the department of urology. German urologists offer last generation medications, minimally invasive interventions and laser procedures, robotic surgery and comprehensive rehabilitation programs.

Diagnostics of the most widespread urological pathologies

 

Treatment in Germany starts with the diagnostic tests, as it is possible to elaborate the effective treatment regimen only after confirming the diagnosis. Medical examination includes the following:

  • General clinical and urological examination. The doctor asks questions about the duration and character of complaints, palpates / auscultates the internal organs, and examines the external genital organs.
  • Laboratory tests. Depending on the clinical indications, the doctor may recommend to pass complete blood count (e.g. for revealing inflammation), urine analysis (e.g. to detect bacteria or crystalluria), biochemical blood test (e.g. for the assessment of kidneys and liver function), PSA blood test (in clinical suspicion of prostate cancer), urethral swab (e.g. in suspicion of infections), spermogram (in men with inflammation or infertility).
  • Visualizing examinations. These include ultrasound scans, endoscopic examinations (e.g. cystoscopy, ureteronephroscopy, etc.), renal angiography, MRI and CT.
  • Functional examinations. Urodynamic testing allows physicians to assess urine passage, e.g. evaluate the residual urine volume, the urinary bladder volume, etc. If there is a medical necessity, urography can be performed. Urography combines functional study with X-ray imaging.

Physicians of other specialities (e.g. gynecologists, neurologists) are sometimes involved in the diagnostic process, as urological symptoms may be indicative of diverse pathologies.

Classification of therapeutic methods

 

Depending on the results of examinations, the therapy of the diseases of the urinary tract includes lifestyle modifications, pharmacological treatments, minimally invasive interventions, the surgical treatment, or the combination of several methods.

Lifestyle modifications include the elimination diet, as certain food and drinks irritate the bladder. Such products are coffee and tea, alcohol, carbonated drinks, spicy foods, cranberry juice and citrus, chocolate, and artificial sweeteners. The reduced salt intake is also recommended. Stress reduction and practicing yoga are helpful for patients with the interstitial cystitis and urinary incontinence. Pelvic exercises (i.e. kegel exercises) also improve control of the bladder.

Pharmacological treatments include different groups of medications. Antibiotics and antibacterial drugs are used in the treatment of cystitis and sexually transmitted infections. Glucocorticoids are administered in autoimmune pathologies of kidneys, e.g. in glomerulonephritis. Cytostatics, drugs for immunotherapy and targeted therapy are used in cancer of the urinary system. Drugs for dissolving kidney stones are indicated to patients with the urolithiasis.

Minimally invasive interventions allow removing polyps, kidney stones, benign or malignant neoplasms without traumatic open surgeries. These include Holmium laser enucleation of the prostate in patients with the benign prostatic hyperplasia, drainage procedures (e.g. percutaneous nephrostomy and suprapubic catheter), stone management with the help of the ureteric stent placement, endovascular embolization of tumors and gonadal vein embolization, thermal ablation in renal cancer, transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) and GreenLight laser prostatectomy. At first glance it may seem that cost of treatment with minimally invasive interventions exceeds the price of conventional surgery significantly. However, minimally invasive procedures require shorter hospital stay and rehabilitation, so they appear to be more cost-effective ultimately.

Surgical treatment includes open removal of kidney stones, benign or malignant tumors, polyps, etc. Plastic interventions are indicated to patients with congenital or acquired defects of the urinary system. The most sparing and precise surgeries are performed with the help of da Vinci robotic system. Working with this system, the surgeon uses robotic manipulators with a high volume of movements and sees the operating field in the magnification. The da Vinci robotic system allows preserving nerves and blood vessels. which leads to better functional outcomes.

Peculiarities of German hospitals

 

Thousands of patients choose treatment in Germany due to precise diagnosis making and perfect treatment outcomes. German physicians elaborate individual treatment regimens that consider age and gender of a patient, presence of concomitant pathologies, reproductive plans, etc. When administering drug therapy, doctors choose modern medications with excellent efficacy and safety profile, as well as with minimal side effects.

When it comes to more invasive therapeutic options, German physicians give preference to minimally invasive and robotic surgeries. This is possible as surgeons constantly improve their skills and master new techniques. Availability of the necessary equipment in specialized hospitals and the departments of urology is of great importance as well.

In addition, German healthcare professionals pay attention to urological rehabilitation after the completion of the main treatment. While main therapy eliminates the pathology, rehabilitation improves the patient's quality of life and maintains the treatment results. The cost of treatment in German hospitals may seem to be higher than in hospitals of the developing countries. However, the ultimate result is definitely worth it.

The best urological hospitals in Germany

 

Hospitals in Germany are among the European healthcare facilities with the most credibility and the highest treatment success rates. Annual reports reflect the number of patients with the urological pathologies who visit each hospital, availability of diagnostic and therapeutic equipment, precision of diagnosis making, treatment success rates, level of the comfort during the inpatient treatment and other factors. Considering all this information, the list of hospitals with the best urologists and the best urology departments is compiled annually.

In 2020, the list of hospitals with the best indicators includes:

It also offers Holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP) for patients with the benign prostatic hyperplasia.
  2. Marien Hospital Marl, Department of Adult and Pediatric Urology. Specialists of the department manage to treat the whole range of the pathologies, from congenital malformations to functional disorders and cancer. Patients often visit the department for diagnostic purposes, if the clinical case is complicated.
  3. University Hospital Saarland Homburg, Department of Adult and Pediatric Urology. Urologists of this department specialize in surgical treatment, including radical and organ-preserving interventions, plastic surgeries, robotic surgeries, etc.
  4. Helios Hospital Berlin-Buch, Department of Urology. The department admits patients with malignant urological neoplasms, such as prostate cancer, testicular, kidney and bladder cancer, including patients with the advanced stages of the pathologies.
  5. DRK Altenkirchen-Hachenburg Hospital, Department of Urology. The treatment conditions of the department combine comprehensive examinations with laser, endourologic and other minimally invasive interventions.
