About the department keyboard_arrow_down

The Department of Dermatology and Allergology at the University Hospital Giessen under the direction of Univ.-Prof. Dr. med. Thilo Jakob specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of skin conditions and allergies. The Department uses all state-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic methods for both examination and treatment of these diseases. The Department offers the full range of modern surgical and conservative dermatology.  

The Department, led by Univ.-Prof. Dr. med. Thilo Jakob, specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of skin tumors (dermatology), chronic inflammatory and autoimmune diseases, as well as skin infections (including mycology), allergies and occupational skin diseases, as well as surgical dermatology, diagnosis and treatment of vein diseases (phlebology), histological studies of skin tests (dermatohistopathology) and psychodermatology. 

The team of doctors under the direction of by Univ.-Prof. Dr. med. Thilo Jakob has a special competence in the treatment of malignant skin diseases. The main objective of the therapy is to remove the tumor as completely as possible. Surgery involves the resection of the tumor tissue with due consideration to a safety distance. A microscopic examination can be used to determine if all tumor cells have been destroyed. If necessary, draining lymph nodes (sentinel lymph nodes) can also be searched, removed and exposed to histological studies. Radiation therapy can be an alternative for the patients with inoperable tumors and a severe general condition. 

The University Hospital Giessen offers various treatments for advanced oncological diseases with metastasis. The treatment programs are developed and implemented within the framework of interdisciplinary oncological consultations provided by doctors from other departments of the UKGM (especially the Departments of Surgery, Radiation Therapy, Hematology/Oncology). The patients can receive chemotherapy and immunotherapy, for example with interferon or ipilimumab, at the hematology/oncology day hospital, which is located in the main building of the UKGM.
