About us

The Department of Urology has 55 beds and four urological intensive care beds.

There are three urological operation theaters in the same building, the outpatient department with four treatment rooms and rooms for x-rays and extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy (ESWL).
The whole range of services in urology can be offered in one place. This extends from pediatric urology to plastic reconstructive surgery and treatment of all urological tumor diseases. Access to all specialist medical areas can be guaranteed because the facilities are situated nearby. Most people who come to us do so because they are ill. We want you and your relatives in difficult times to receive not only the best possible diagnosis, treatment and care, but also our staff is there to look after you as an individual.
Fundamental research in urology is incorporated into the West German Tumor Center (WTZ).
The research center is responsible for systematically examining the mechanisms of the origins of cancer, and cancer risk factors, as well as for identifying new target molecules for therapies. Further application oriented research is concentrated on new types of methods of tumor imaging and the establishment of new strategies for treatment, such as innovative precision radiotherapy in theWest German Proton Therapy Center.
