About us

Prof. Peter Hammerer is a specialist in urology, special urological surgery, medical tumour treatment and andrology at the Braunschweig Municipal Hospital. Since 2003, this specialist has led the Urology and Uro-oncology Clinic, which enjoys an excellent reputation in medical circles both at home and abroad as a specialised urology clinic and one of the leading German specialist clinics for the treatment of prostatic diseases, as Senior Consultant.

Under the leadership of the specialist urologist, Prof. Hammerer, the entire spectrum of urological diseases of the genito-urinary tract is treated at the Urology and Uro-oncology Clinic of the Braunschweig Municipal Hospital. Together with all diseases of the male genitalia, the prostate, the testicles and the penis, these also include conditions of the male and female urinary organs, including the kidneys, the ureters, the urethrae and the urinary bladder.

As an internationally renowned expert in urological cancer diseases and a board member of the European Urological Cancer Association (ESOU), the European School of Urology (ESU) and the Urological Oncology Association (AUO), Prof. Hammerer specialises particularly in the diagnosis and treatment of prostatic tumours, bladder tumours, renal pelvis tumours and renal cell carcinomas. As well, benign diseases of the genito-urinary tract such as incontinence, benign enlargement of the prostate (BPH) and renal calculi are among the treatment emphases of this specialist in urology, Prof. Hammerer in Braunschweig.

The entire spectrum of urological examination and treatment procedures at the highest medical and medico-technical level is available to the specialist urologist Prof. Hammerer and his team for the diagnosis and treatment of these urological diseases at the Urology and Uro-oncology Clinic in Braunschweig. Hence, the medical facilities of the Urology and Uro-oncology Clinic in Braunschweig include several laser devices, the most up to date ultrasound equipment, colour-coded Doppler sonography, modern X-ray examination equipment, urodynamic measurement stations, an ultramodern arsenal of video endoscopic instruments and a renal stone lithotripter.

The therapeutic spectrum includes all conservative and surgical endourological, laparoscopic and open urological treatments. Among the procedures predominantly performed by the urology specialist, Prof. Hammerer, and his team in Braunschweig, are transurethral resection (ablation) of prostatic growths and bladder tumours, minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery of the posterior abdominal cavity (retroperitoneum), endoscopic kidney stone removal, as well as conventional and organ-conserving renal tumour surgery.

As well, the specialist urologist, Prof. Hammerer, also performs the surgical removal of cysts, laser treatment of renal pelvis tumours, prostatectomy (removal of the prostate), cystectomy (removal of the urinary bladder) and the provision of urinary drainage using a replacement bladder created from the small intestine in Braunschweig.

Together with these treatment emphases, the Urology and Uro-oncology Clinic of the Braunschweig Municipal Hospital possesses great expertise, above all in the treatment of prostatic tumours. Thus, the Urology and Uro-oncology Clinic has been certified by the German Cancer Association and the European Specialist Association as a Prostatic Cancer Centre. Under the leadership of the specialist urologist, Prof. Hammerer, urologists, radiotherapists, radiologists, oncologists and pathologists work together at the interdisciplinary Prostatic Cancer Centre in Braunschweig to assess the individual treatment recommendations, which are based on the current guidelines, for the prostate cancer patients.

Altogether, more than 3,500 patients are admitted and approximately 6,000 men are treated as out-patients at the Urology and Uro-oncology Clinic in Braunschweig each year under the leadership of the specialist urologist, Prof. Hammerer. These men benefit from gentle diagnostic and treatment methods, which are based on established treatment concepts, from the insights of up to date and innovative medicine and from the contribution of the highly trained and motivated specialist personnel, with their long-standing experience in the care of urology patients.
