The patients in the Department of Urology benefit directly from the combined expert knowledge of the hospital. As a multicenter site, the Helios Hospital in Berlin-Buch is also highly specialized in the comprehensive treatment and counseling of patients with testicular tumors. For benign or malignant cancer conditions of the lower abdomen, cutting edge facilities for precise diagnostics and pinpoint accurate treatment are available to the attending specialist team of the Department of Urology in Berlin-Buch. The objective of the treatment here is invariably to proceed as gently as possible in order to be able to alleviate the stress of a cancer condition.
