As a modern urological practice, we offer the full range of urological services. Day surgery is performed either at the practice or at the Marienhospital in Stuttgart, our co-operating partners.
- Removal of tissue from the prostate (biopsy)
- Positioning and replacement of ureteral stents (DJ catheters, stents and ureteral catheters)
- Inguinal testis in children
We have been co-operating with the Marienhospital in Stuttgart since 2007. All kidney, bladder and prostate surgery, together with that on the external genitalia, is performed there in line with national and international guidelines. Many years’ experience, the latest technology and a positive co-operation with the Marienhospital ensure that our patients receive all-round urological care.
Endoscopic surgery for prostate cancer (TUR-P)
A gentle procedure to remove tissue from the prostate through the urethra without an abdominal incision.
Endoscopic bladder surgery (TUR-B)
Minimally-invasive surgery involving removal of bladder tumours through the urethra.
Photodynamic diagnostics (PDD)
To allow the detection of very shallow bladder tumours, barely detectable with the naked eye but still dangerous, we pass a substance into the bladder before the planned TUR-B procedure which accumulates in suspected areas of tumour. The bladder is then subjected to endoscopic examination under blue light, which causes the suspected areas of tumour to fluoresce, facilitating extremely high-precision surgery.
Endoscopic diagnosis and treatment of stones
Endoscopic crushing and removal of kidney stones and urinary calculus in the bladder, ureter and urethra. Among other equipment, we can use a laser to treat stones.
Injection of botox into the bladder and prostate
In a minor day procedure, small quantities of the botulinum toxin are injected endoscopically into the muscles of the bladder or into the prostate via the urethra; this successfully treats irritating, painful conditions such as overactive bladder or prostate syndrome.
Radical surgery in the case of prostate cancer, testicular carcinoma or carcinoma of the kidney
Partial removal of the kidney
As tumours of the kidney are often detected by chance during an ultrasound examination or MRI or CT scan these days, it is frequently possible to remove just the tumour. The rest of the kidney is preserved.
Surgery days: Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday
After a tumour has been diagnosed and treated, individual follow-up care is required to suit the disease and the patient in question. We deliver this care in our practice – based on national and international guidelines.
