University Hospital Dusseldorf
Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics
Specialized in: gynecology, obstetrics
To support women during pregnancy and the perinatal period is one of the central tasks of our department of obstetrics and gynecology with an emphasis on support of risk pregnancies. During the prenatal period our hospital offers all modern procedures of prenatal diagnostics and intrauterine therapy. We have a close cooperation with related disciplines such as human genetics, pediatric cardiology, pediatric urology and pediatric surgery.
A further emphasis of our gynaecological service is the treatment of malignancies of the female genital system. All tumors of the uterus, the ovaries and the external genitalia are being treated according to the tumor-stage and the individual needs. We are receiving supra-regional referrals of patients with locally advanced tumors that have spread to other organs like the urinary bladder or the rectum. A multidisciplinary approach for pelvic exenteration is a therapeutical option for patients with advanced disease. Our department is also a referral center for patients with relapsing disease after irradiation. For these patients innovative techniques like secondary afterloading irradiation for pelvic wall tumors have been established.
For diagnostics and therapy of breast diseases a breast center has been set up. This facility offers the whole range of modern diagnostic and therapeutic techniques as well as countseling for women with a family history of breast cancer. For patients who need a breast biopsy we offer minimal-invasive techniques like the stereotactic Mammotome®-procedure. This biopsy ist performed computerassisted in an outpatient setting. This technique ist very well tolerated and makes an operation with hospitalization often unnecessary. If breastcancer is diagnosed, all modern operative and conservative treatment options are available.
Düsseldorf University Hospital is a maximum-care hospital, and as such, at Düsseldorf University, or UKD, are a byword for international top-quality service in all areas of medical care. One particular strongpoint is the integration of clinical service and research – a necessity when it comes to patient care with the best possible standards that medical science has to offer. The close integration between patient care, research and medical training in one place presents decisive advantages for our patients – you will not only benefit from modern, high-performance equipment in the individual clinics and speciality departments, but also from the latest results from medical research, right from the source.
Apart from that, our many individual clinics work together in a close network, giving you the benefit of a united source of knowledge and experience from all medical disciplines. This is how we lay the groundwork for effective treatment in the future to benefit patients with diseases that cannot currently be cured, at best relieved. We work closely with partner universities based inside and outside Germany, helping us gain new knowledge and improve our understanding of diseases, leading to new, innovative methods in diagnostics and therapy.
