Surgical treatment

One focus of our practice is on the surgical therapy of urologic diseases. We have the surgical experience of many years from our previous clinical activities at our disposal. Being experts in surgical urology, we also perform outpatient and inpatient surgery at the hospital. Surgery and post-surgery treatment is performed at the Karl-Olga-Hospital in Stuttgart. Further aftercare takes place at our premises.

The close cooperation with the Karl-Olga-Hospital makes it possible for our patients to pass through one chain of treatment from the first visit at our practice and surgery through to aftercare. We focus on endourology with minimal invasive therapy (using miniaturised instruments), transurethral surgery (endoscopic surgery through the urethra) as well as laparoscopy (keyhole surgery). We also perform conventional (open) surgery.
