Philosophy

We have been running our combined urology practice at Marienplatz 8 since 2007. All three doctors share the same values and practise the same medicine. As urologists and andrologists, we work in line with the highest medical standards. Our range of services covers the diagnosis and treatment of urological diseases in men, women, children and young people. 

As partners of the Marienhospital in Stuttgart, with whom we co-operate in urological matters, we provide out-patient and in-patient procedures to guarantee all-round urological care. All insured patients are assured rapid appointments and short waiting times.

We maintain a friendly, trusting environment with both employees and patients.

We are keen to pass on our knowledge, providing electives for medical students and training auxiliary medical staff. We are also involved in lecturing at a variety of events.

Technical equipment

Ultrasound devices
Our ultrasound devices cover a broad range of examinations. The integrated image optimization technology facilitates delivery of high-quality examination results with outstandingly sharp images. The integrated "ß-flow colour" feature allows blood flow to be detected visually and by metrological means, even in small vessels. The devices are equipped with additional transducers and in transrectal ultrasound examinations, allow virtually painless examinations.

Portable ultrasound device
The portable ultrasound device has a high-resolution colour display and satisfies all the requirements for an optimum examination. It is used for home visits.

Cysto-urethroscope
The cysto-urethroscope we use is a flexible instrument with an oblique end on the shaft. This ensures safe, non-traumatic (gentle) passage through the urethra during examinations.

Analyser
We use a fully-automated enzyme immunoassay analyser to determine all the clinicochemical serum parameters offered by the practice. Barcode readers in the analyser and unidirectional connection to the laboratory data-processing system guarantee consistently clear identification of samples and reagents. The outstanding precision of parameters verified by external and internal quality control programmes guarantees high analytical performance, as well as rapid, specific lab results.

Sperm quality analyser
Our analyser from the United States rapidly and reliably analyses fresh, frozen, washed or enriched sperm samples. All the basic sperm analysis parameters demanded by the WHO standards are taken into account. The results are recorded in a database and patients can be informed rapidly and confidentially.

 

 

Laboratory

We have continuously developed our laboratory over the years. We have invested in the latest-generation analysers and perfected processes. The outstanding qualifications and many years’ experience of our medical technology laboratory assistant deliver a state-of-the-art laboratory with excellently-trained staff. Optimum health care is ensured by rapidly available, totally reliable computer-aided results.
