The Department of Urology offers the entire spectrum of outpatient and inpatient urology, both apparative diagnostics as well as open and minimally invasive surgery. These include preliminary screenings, treatments and follow-up care.
Center for kidney stone therapy
Stone treatment with the most modern minimally invasive methods. Even when treating complex stones, we are one of the few clinics that uses a combination of digital, flexible imaging of the kidney and ureteroscopy together with minimally invasive percutaneous (called "mini-perc"), drain-free (called "tubeless") surgery. This results in a significantly reduced duration of hospitalization. Additionally, the procedure is safer as a result of combining the two methods, although more complicated and cost intensive.
Circumcision, vasectomy, smaller procedures on the external genitalia, lithotripsy of smaller stones. Catheter changing of all types.
Endourology (cystoscopic surgery)
Cystoscopy, ureteroscopy (for stone treatment, for diagnostic purposes), as well as nephro-lithotripsy (stone and tumor therapy), treatment of benign prostatic hypertrophy (TURP = Transurethral Resection of the Prostate, prostatic surgery via the urethra, called "small" operation) with monopolar, bipolar and laser technique. Excision of bladder tumors through the urethra.
Laparoscopy (keyhole surgery)
Smaller procedures on the external genitalia (e.g., hydrocele surgery), procedures on the kidney, very large surgeries in prostate cancer, bladder cancer with bladder replacement and removal of large kidney tumors. Preparatory surgeries for transplantation (e.g., removal of large cystic kidneys) and corrective procedures after transplantation.
