Gynaecological Surgery

Gynaecological Surgery Services and Areas – Highly Effective Medicine for Patient Health

For more than 25 years, including 18 years at the Sachsenhausen Hospital, we have been able to continuously expand our minimally invasive gynaecological (MIC) surgery capabilities, which has enabled us to perform operations on benign and many malignant pelvic diseases in women by the use of hysteroscopy (access through the cervix of the uterus) or laparoscopy (access through the abdominal cavity). We are one of the leading MIC centers in Hessen and throughout Germany.

More than 2,500 minimally invasive operations on the pelvic organs are performed every year. We carry out more than 1,000 surgical procedures per year in our outpatient operating center. Uterine myomatosis is a surgical center offering more than 800 hysteroscopic and laparoscopic organ preservation interventions (myoma enucleation) as well as more than 600 laparoscopic extractions of the uterus (hysterectomy).

Other major issues include surgical treatment of lung and severe endometriosis (the surgery is performed by our surgeons, most often with the use of minimally invasive techniques), as well as surgical treatment of carcinoma of female reproductive organs (cervical cancer and cancer). Each of these interventions is performed more than 100 times a year.

We work in close cooperation with the Department of Radiology which uses the most advanced imaging techniques for diagnosis. The laparoscopic technique known as "keyhole surgery" means a sparing surgical access and a small suture that heals quickly, shortening the patient's stay in the clinic, as well as ensuring a quick recovery. In addition to surgical methods of treatment, we also also deal with all diseases that require conservative gynaecological treatment.

Our main task is to adapt your individual wishes to the medical requirements and standards. That is why we always do our best to advise patients, answering all their questions in detail.

Center for Minimally Invasive Surgery in Gynecology

Almost all operations for benign gynecological diseases can nowadays be performed minimally invasive. Even at early stages of malignant gynecological diseases, the required radical surgical procedures can be performed while maintaining the latest standards and taking into account the guidelines.

We are one of the few clinics in Germany that have put it into our day-to-day operational practice, building on what will soon be more than 20 years of experience.

In Germany, surgery is still too much, too radical and with unnecessarily large abdominal sections. Therefore, our approach and thus our diagnostic and treatment path looks like this:

Is surgery necessary at all, and if so, what is the best surgical procedure? The example of uterine fibroids or bleeding disorders: hormonal treatment, insertion of a hormone-active spiral, hysteroscopic procedures (endometrial ablation or myoma resection), organ preserving procedures (laparoscopic myoma enucleation) or finally as ultima ratio the complete or partial removal of the uterus while preserving the cervix ,

When the indication for surgical intervention is now established and supported by the patient, the smallest possible operative access enabling the planned operation should be chosen (usually endoscopic or minimally invasive procedures).

The advantage, in addition to better cosmetic results, is a significant reduction in hospital stay and convalescence after the procedure. Duration of operation and complication no longer differ from so-called open procedures today.

Quality in our field means not only the recording of intra- and post-operative complications but the question of a broad and differentiated therapeutic or surgical offer that allows the patient to choose the best treatment method for her after detailed consultation and education.

Without expert and human care, our state-of-the-art and engineered medical care would be worth half as much. That is why we can say with a clear conscience because of the extraordinary commitment of all employees: High tech with a heart.
