About the Department of Gynecology, Mammology and Obstetrics at University Hospital Rechts der Isar Munich

The Department of Gynecology, Mammology and Obstetrics at the University Hospital Rechts der Isar Munich offers the full range of services in these fields, providing patients with the optimal treatment based on the very latest scientific advances and innovative technologies. The department's tasks include diagnostics and treatment of all gynecologic diseases and breast pathologies, as well as pregnancy management, childbirth and postnatal care for both mother and baby, elimination of fertility problems in women. The department has modern equipment for invasive and non-invasive diagnostics, three operating rooms equipped with state-of-the-art technology, especially in the field of minimally invasive and robot-assisted surgery, as well as special devices for microsurgery and fetal surgery. A competent medical team consisting of 18 senior physicians, 25 assistant physicians and medical specialists, obstetricians and specially trained nursing staff annually admits approximately 5,000 women for inpatient treatment and provides outpatient medical care for 14,000 patients. In addition, the department has four maternity rooms, in which about 2,000 babies are born annually. The Head Physician of the department is Prof. Dr. med. Marion Kiechle.

The department's gynecologists pay special attention to the prevention, diagnostics and treatment of female reproductive cancers. For this purpose, the department has a highly specialized center, whose specialists deal with the treatment of cervical, ovarian, fallopian tube, vulvar and vaginal cancers. The center collaborates with doctors of related specialties, including gynecologists, surgeons, oncologists, radiation therapists, radiologists, specialists in the field of nuclear medicine, psychologists. To make an accurate diagnosis, a comprehensive examination is carried out, which may include smear sampling, biopsy, colposcopy, ultrasound scanning, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), positron emission tomography (PET). The department's specialists gather for an interdisciplinary board three times a week, during which they cooperatively study the diagnostic results and prescribe the optimal course of treatment based on the type of cancer, its stage, tumor location, the presence or absence of metastases, the patient's age and other indicators. As a rule, the first-line therapy for gynecologic cancers is a surgical resection of a malignant tumor or an organ affected by the oncological process. The department's doctors have a perfect command of modern surgical techniques, including minimally invasive and robot-assisted ones, so patients can count on the operation to be effective and as sparing as possible. Chemotherapy, hormone therapy, antibody therapy, radiation therapy, and other conservative treatment methods are often prescribed in addition to surgery. Women suffering from oncology also receive psychological assistance, since such a diagnosis affects the psycho-emotional state, which negatively affects the therapeutic process.

Breast cancer is one of the most common types of oncology in women, so the department's doctors offer a wide range of diagnostic and therapeutic options for its treatment. The main treatment for breast cancer is surgery to remove the tumor or the entire breast. The volume and complexity of the surgical intervention depend on the size of the neoplasm, the stage and location of cancer, the presence of metastatic lesions, and woman's general health condition. Many women are worried about their appearance after surgery, therefore, the department performs reconstructive interventions to restore an attractive appearance of the breasts. To replenish the size and shape of the breast, plastic surgeons use the patient's own tissues, implants and lipofilling techniques.

The department also offers high quality obstetric services. More than 2,000 babies are born here every year. Each delivery room has a unique atmosphere with specially controlled lighting, music and fragrances. Pregnant women can choose the position for childbirth themselves, water birth is also possible. The department has a team of nurses, obstetricians and at least one senior physician and two assistant physicians on duty around the clock. There is a state-of-the-art operating room in the immediate vicinity of the delivery rooms where all the necessary obstetric operations and fetal surgery are performed. The intensive care unit for premature babies is also located nearby, so doctors can provide patients with comprehensive medical care of excellent quality.
