Special Clinical Focus

  • Robot-assisted prostate surgery (radical prostatectomy (including nerve preservation and extended lymphadenectomy), extraperitoneal radical prostatectomy (including nerve preservation)
  • Robot-assisted partial nephrectomy
  • Robot-assisted pyeloplasty (reconstruction of the renal pelvis)
  • Robot-assisted ureteral reconstruction by means of psoas hitch plasty or Boari’s flap plasty
  • Robot-assisted radical cystectomy (surgical removal of the bladder)
  • Robot-assisted nephro-ureterectomy + excision of the bladder cuff + lymphadenectomy (excision of the renal-ureter complex, together with the efferent lymph nodes)

About us

Prof. Roman Ganzer, Fellow of the European Board of Urology (FEBU), is the Senior Consultant in the Department of Urology of the Asklepios City Hospital in Bad Toelz. In 2004, Prof. Ganzer completed his specialist training in the Department of Urology of the University of Regensburg and presented his post-doctoral thesis in 2010. From 2014 until June 2017, he was the Deputy Clinical Director of the Clinic and Polyclinic for Urology at the University of Leipzig. Since 2017, he has also been an Adjunct Professor of Urology. Prof. Ganzer was appointed as the new Senior Consultant of the Department of Urology at the Asklepios City Hospital in Bad Toelz on 1 July 2017. In Prof. Ganzer, the Department of Urology of the Asklepios City Hospital in Bad Toelz has a Senior Consultant who attaches great importance to state-of-the-art and future-orientated techniques. Using his knowledge of advanced techniques and the high-tech facilities of the hospital, Prof. Ganzer, together with his team, would like to establish the Department of Urology as a nation-wide centre of excellence in urology. His emphases include robot-assisted (da Vinci) surgery, laparoscopic 3-D surgery and the focal treatment of carcinoma of the prostate. In order to reinforce the aspiration as a “Centre of Excellence”, the Asklepios City Hospital is the first hospital in the region to introduce da Vinci surgery, 3-D laparoscopy, MRI / ultrasound fusion biopsy of the prostate and focal treatment for carcinoma of the prostate simultaneously. The “da Vinci” surgical robot system was designed to support the surgeon during procedures. “Da Vinci” is not actually a surgical robot, but is a system, which only does what is specified by the medical practitioners. The expertise of the surgeon and long-standing experience are crucial requirements. Only a well-trained and experienced surgeon has the necessary experience to undertake a broad spectrum of special procedures using the “da Vinci” system. Prof. Ganzer is an established specialist in the field of robot-assisted surgical techniques using “da Vinci”. Da Vinci surgery can be performed with a high degree of precision and as gently as possible for the patient. Inter alia, “da Vinci” is employed in the excision of the prostate gland for prostatic cancer (radical prostatectomy), in renal tumours and in carcinoma of the urinary bladder. Numerous reconstructive procedures such as pyeloplasty and ureteral re-implantation are also within the range of this system. Thanks to the smaller incision, a lower level of tissue trauma and the generally lower blood loss, the patients are more rapidly fit again, require less analgesia and develop complications less often following “da Vinci” procedures than with open procedures.
