About the department

The Department of Adult and Pediatric Gynecology, Mammology, Obstetrics and Reproductive Medicine at the University Hospital Carl Gustav Carus Dresden offers the full range of surgical and conservative treatment of pathologies of the female reproductive system, breast, as well as top-class obstetric services, including management of birth and postnatal care for both mother and baby. The department also has a Center for Reproductive Medicine, where one can undergo comprehensive diagnostics to detect the causes of infertility and use modern assisted reproductive technologies. The department's excellent technical equipment, highly qualified medical staff and the availability of advanced treatment methods allow providing optimal and individualized treatment at the highest level. The treatment of female reproductive cancers is of primary interest to the department's gynecologists. The department also admits girls and young women with congenital anomalies of the genital organs, menstrual disorders, delayed or premature puberty. The department is headed by Prof. Dr. med. Pauline Wimberger.

The department is part of the Comprehensive Cancer Center Dresden, which is one of the 11 highly specialized German Сancer Сenters. Gynecologic and breast cancers are treated within the specialized centers operating on the basis of the department. The department has gained an excellent reputation in these medical fields and is certified by the German Cancer Society. The department offers its patients the full range of diagnostics, surgical treatment (complex oncological interventions, including minimally invasive and robot-assisted surgery), drug therapy, radiation therapy and follow-up monitoring. In addition, the department's tasks include professional psychological care, as well as support of social workers, psychotherapists and specially trained nursing staff.

Another department's important focus is general gynecology, which deals with the treatment of endometriosis and uterine fibroids. The treatment of these pathologies involves the use of sparing minimally invasive techniques, including robot-assisted laparoscopy. The department's doctors also specialize in the diagnostics and treatment of infertility. For this purpose, there is the whole arsenal of effective methods.

In the field of obstetrics, expectant mothers are offered comprehensive pregnancy management, including high-risk pregnancies. The childbirth is carried out by experienced obstetricians who do their best to make it as safe and painless as possible. Various pain management techniques are used to relieve pain during childbirth. These include homeopathy, acupuncture, epidural anesthesia, and relaxation baths. All delivery rooms are equipped with the necessary aids for a successful childbirth.

The department's therapeutic options are complemented by the treatment of infertility in women and men. The department operates a specialized center, whose doctors carry out diagnostics to detect the causes of infertility, and also successfully use assisted reproductive technologies. During the individual consultation, the doctor meets the couple, asks about the period of time during which they cannot conceive a child, and prescribes the necessary diagnostic tests to assess the health status of the partners. With all the diagnostic data, the specialists develop a treatment regimen. In some cases, it is enough to treat a disease that prevents pregnancy, for example, polycystic ovary syndrome or fallopian tube obstruction. However, assisted reproductive technologies are often required: intrauterine insemination, in vitro fertilization and ICSI procedures, TESE/MESA for the administration of sperm into the egg using special micromanipulators. The department also performs cryopreservation of ovarian and sperm cells. Whenever required, psychological assistance is provided.
