About us


Prof. Christhardt Koehler is the Senior Consultant of the Department of Special Surgical and Oncological Gynaecology at the Asklepios Hospital, Harburg. As a specialist surgical gynaecologist, Prof. Koehler of the Harburg Gynaecology Clinic is a pioneer in minimally invasive surgery for patients with cancer of the reproductive organs. The Department of Special Surgical and Oncological Gynaecology in Hamburg specialises particularly in the gentle treatment of cancer of the cervix (cervical carcinoma), cancer of the ovary (ovarian carcinoma), uterine cancer (endometrial carcinoma), carcinoma of the vulva and endometriosis. Expectant mothers suffering from a cancerous condition of the female reproductive organs are also treated at the Harburg Gynaecology Clinic, without necessarily having to terminate their pregnancy. Prof. Koehler is well-known for his exceptional surgical technique beyond the Gynaecology Clinic in Hamburg; he lends his support to other hospitals in the treatment of women suffering from cancer, both nationally and internationally.

Minimally invasive surgical techniques are employed whenever possible at the Department of Special Surgical and Oncological Gynaecology in Hamburg. this means that larger abdominal incisions, which place the patient under stress, can be avoided, as a rule. Instead of this, only a few, very small incisions are made, through which small surgical instruments and a camera are introduced into the patient’s body. Tumours are removed at the Harburg Gynaecology Clinic with the aid of this less stressful technique, particularly, when the cancer has not yet progressed very far. By using minimally invasive techniques at the Gynaecology Clinic in Hamburg, the patient’s organs and body image are conserved and the stressful sequelae of the surgery are reduced. Even in the situations where a laparotomy (a major abdominal procedure) is necessary, Prof. Koehler’s patients at the Department of Special Surgical and Oncological Gynaecology in Hamburg can be confident that the treatment is undertaken in accordance with the medical guidelines to the highest standard and by a highly specialised, interdisciplinary team.

The gentlest possible and, at the same time, the medically most reliable possible surgery to be performed, such as trachelectomy, laparoscopic staging and laparoscopic, radical vaginal hysterectomy, is performed for the treatment of cervical cancer at the Gynaecology Clinic in Harburg. As well, there is the closest collaboration with the Radio-oncology Department if the surgical staging indicates this. During a trachelectomy at the Department of Special Surgical and Oncological Gynaecology at the Harburg Gynaecology Clinic, up to two-thirds of the uterus, the outer os of the cervix and the lymph nodes are removed via the vagina with the aid of laparoscopy and the internal os of the cervix is then joined to the vagina. Thanks to the method used by Prof. Koehler at the Gynaecology Clinic in Hamburg, pregnancies are still possible, as a rule, even after the cancer treatment.
