About the Department of Adult and Pediatric Dermatology, Venereology at University Hospital Muenster

The Department of Adult and Pediatric Dermatology, Venereology at the University Hospital Muenster offers the full range of medical services in these fields. The department is one of the largest medical facilities in Germany specializing in the treatment of congenital and acquired skin diseases. The department's doctors have in their arsenal many classic and innovative treatment methods, which provide the best therapeutic and aesthetic result. For patients with incurable diseases, the doctors develop individual therapy concepts aimed at the prevention of disease progression and improvement of the patient’s quality of life. The department is headed by Prof. Dr. med. Kerstin Steinbrink.

One of the priorities is the treatment of skin cancers (certification of the German Cancer Society). The specialization covers the treatment of malignant melanomas, squamous cell carcinoma, basal cell carcinoma, as well as the treatment of rare types of skin tumors, benign tumors (for example, warts, birthmarks and hemangiomas). The photodermatology methods are widely used in the clinical practice. Also, the integration into the Center for Innovative Dermatology, which operates at the university hospital, contributes to the excellent quality of medical care.

The department's specialists have managed to achieve excellent results in the treatment of chronic pruritus, and today it is a certified Center of Excellence for the treatment of this pathology. Pruritus is the most common dermatologic symptom in most dermatoses. Also, chronic pruritus can be a manifestation of other diseases, such as diabetes mellitus, diseases of the liver, kidneys, mental disorders. Therefore, such patients receive care from a competent interdisciplinary team, which ensures the proper treatment of the pathology and its complications.

In addition, the department has been certified as a Center of Excellence for Venous Diseases, therefore it offers the full range of diagnostic and therapeutic services in this field. The department's specialists mostly have to deal with such pathologies as varicose veins, thrombosis and impaired wound healing. The department's therapeutic options vary from conservative, minimally invasive to surgical treatment techniques. The innovative therapy options include stripping and radio wave therapy (VNUS Closure Fast™).
