Our prostate therapy: gentle - individual - effective
Almost one in two men over the age of 50 is affected by prostate problems - these include prostate cancer, enlargement of the prostate, prostatitis or an elevated PSA level.
Here in our specialist clinic for prostate therapy, we specialise in gentle, individual and effective prostate diagnosis and gentle methods of prostate therapy.
Together with a comprehensive and holistic diagnosis, we create an individual and patient-oriented therapeutic concept. On request, this concept can be agreed with the medical practitioner or urologist involved in the treatment at the patient's place of residence.
We use the very latest diagnostic and treatment methods, focusing on the following procedures:
- In the case of a substantiated risk of cancer and a raised PSA level, we use an MRI-guided biopsy, which provides a high level of diagnostic accuracy and removes only a very minimal quantity of tissues. Unnecessary biopsies are avoided.
- We mainly treat benign prostate enlargement using particularly effective laser methods such as the Greenlight laser and the Evolve laser - even in cases where the volume of the prostate is very large.
- We usually treat prostate cancer using high intensity focused ultrasound using the HIFU Sonablate 500 system - a low-risk and sustainable procedure, which is much more gentle than conventional operations (prostatectomy).
- Bladder stones can be extremely painful and we fragment these using a new type of pulse laser and, in a second stage of treatment, we also eliminate the cause - which is mainly due to a benign enlargement of the prostate.
Since its foundation in 1994, the Heidelberg Clinic for Prostate Therapy has established itself as the leading specialist clinic for gentle prostate diagnosis and prostate therapy in Germany, and is well-known far beyond the German borders. Patients come from all over the world and this is testimony of the international reputation and the high medical standards of the clinic.
