The main focus of the Urology Department at Rudolfinerhaus in Vienna is on the urine production and urine discharging system, and thus includes the kidneys, the urinary bladder, the ureters and the urethra. The specialists at the Urology Department in Vienna are concerned, in particular, with the treatment of conditions of the male genitalia.
The doctors at Rudolfinerhaus in Vienna provide their patients with the entire spectrum of laparoscopic techniques (minimally invasive abdominal surgery using instruments), including radical laparoscopic prostatectomy (complete removal of the prostate for a cancerous condition).
The Urology Department at Rudolfinerhaus in Vienna also has its own urogynaecological surgery unit. Here, inter alia, urinary incontinence treatments are performed by established specialists in this field. Vaginal prolapse and uterine prolapse also take precedence, however. The specialists of the Urology Department at Rudolfinerhaus in Vienna try to use minimally invasive techniques in all cases. These state-of-the-art surgical techniques make the highest success-rates and the patients’ optimal satisfaction possible.
Urinary incontinence is one of the generally “silent” conditions. Frequently, owing to a false sense of shame, patients do not talk about it. At Rudolfinerhaus in Vienna, however, you can talk openly to our specialists about your problem. Their years of experience help our urologists to develop suitable therapeutic strategies. Surgery is not always immediately necessary. In the early stages of incontinence, physiotherapy techniques, such as pelvic floor training, can extend the time until surgery and restore the patient’s quality of life.
