We understand women

Treatments at a glance

Preventive (annual) checkups

In addition to the early detection of cervical and breast cancer, we advise women of all ages on suspected diseases of the reproductive organs. We offer complete care from the diagnosis to the completed treatment.

Finding a suitable contraceptive method among the many available is of great importance. We support you in choosing the method that is right for you.
Adolescent Girls' consultation

During the process of growing up, many questions arise and we want to respond to the needs of the young people and solve their fears. The young girls are allowed to come to the consultation hours accompanied by a confidant.
Bleedings disorders

Problems with the menstrual cycle are always a reason for uncertainty and often a reason for an unpleasant experience. We clarify this specifically and individually and accompany you during the clarification and therapy.

Myomas are benign tumours of the uterus which often cause unpleasant symptoms. Using the most modern treatment methods, we can offer you the most suitable therapy option.

In total, about 15% of all women live with this disease. Menstrual pains and infertility are the main problems. With us you will receive competent care based on the latest standards.
Desire to have children

Unwanted childlessness affects and burdens every sixth couple. The reasons for this are many and varied. We will initiate the necessary investigations and discuss the various therapy options with you.
Ovarian findings

Often there are tumours or cysts on the ovaries. We will be happy to assist you with clarification and therapy. With laparoscopy, we offer a procedure that only minimally affects the ovary.

During this phase, the focus is usually on cycle fluctuations, hot flushes, insomnia, mood swings or sweating. In contrast, various hormonal and alternative therapies are available.

Changes in the breast can make women feel insecure and trigger fear of cancer. We will advise you quickly and competently and carry out the diagnosis and therapy.
Bladder weakness

This is a delicate subject that is often only addressed at the gynaecologist. There are numerous therapy options after appropriate diagnostics. Our goal is to regain your quality of life.

These not only cause unpleasant symptoms in the short term, but can sometimes lead to permanent consequences. That is why early detection and treatment are of particular importance.


Competent care on the way to birth

Treatments at a glance

With empathetic medical expertise, we accompany you from the ultrasound examination to the postpartum consultation.

Pregnancy care

Most pregnancies are uncomplicated. Our medical support during the entire pregnancy supports this natural process. Risks and their consequences are recognised early on.
High-risk pregnancy/multiples

In a risk situation, we accompany you individually and safely through the pregnancy. For the safety of mother and child we accompany you ``doubly`` attentively - also in cooperation with various specialists.
Ultrasound examinations

The ultrasound examination not only strengthens the bond between the parents and the child, but also, through the use of modern technology, identifies many special features in the course of development.
FTT/NT measurement

This examination is part of the first screenings and has an important role in the course of the examination. The nuchal translucency measurement, together with other parameters, makes it possible to estimate the risk of some chromosomal anomalies.
First- and Midtrimester Screening

Using modern technology, we carry out a detailed sonographic examination in the first and second trimester. This enables us to identify most fetal peculiarities and is the basis for our competent advice in prenatal diagnostics.
Colour Doppler sonography

Due to the Doppler effect, particularities in the blood flow of fetal and maternal vessels are detected. In this way we can guarantee optimal care in a risk situation.

The question ``What does the child look like?`` moves all parents. Using the latest 3D/4D technology, the foetus is displayed three-dimensionally and promotes assessment within the framework of our diagnostics.
Prenatal diagnostics

In special situations we recommend a more in-depth clarification of malformations and chromosomal anomalies. In some constellations, the non-invasive prenatal test (NIPT) may also be considered. Thanks to our expertise and close cooperation with leading specialists, we can guarantee you optimal care.
Delivery/including section

The birth of your child is a happy event and should take place in a familiar environment. Our medical care focuses on nature. Should situations arise in which additional measures are necessary for the well-being of mother and child, the whole team will decide together with you.
Postpartum care

The time after the birth is exciting for the parents and for the child. Joy and insecurities are mixed together. We are at your side and take the time to answer all your questions competently.
Breastfeeding counseling

Breastfeeding is an intimate process for mother and child. The lack of experience often leads to unpleasant situations. We would be happy to accompany you during this phase so that you can fully enjoy this valuable time with your child.
Midwifery consultation

Comprehensive advice from an experienced midwife on pregnancy, birth, puerperium and breastfeeding, including recommendations on natural remedies and tips on pregnancy complaints and nutrition.


Minimal invasive surgery at the highest level

Treatments at a glance

We offer the entire spectrum of surgical treatments in the field of gynaecology. Our focus is on minimal invasive surgery at the highest level. We treat malignant diseases in certified centres.

Breast Surgery

Minor interventions for diagnostic confirmation: biopsies (punch, vacuum, open). For malignant lumps: from breast preservation to breast removal, including reconstruction by plastic surgery (in certified breast centres).
Uterine surgery

Hysteroscopy: this is used to successfully treat polyps, myomas and dysfunctional bleeding. Laparoscopy: removes fibroids and restores the patency of the fallopian tubes.
Surgery for ovarian mass

All interventions are performed by laparoscopy. With this technique, the diseased tissue can be gently removed so that only minimal damage is done to the ovary and fertility is not affected.

Is performed by laparoscopy (laparoscopy) and it is an outpatient procedure.
Surgery for urinary incontinence

Minimally invasive loop liner: the ``golden standard`` of incontinence therapy. Laparoscopic urethro-colpopexy (Burch): for special indications or if the loop insert fails.
Descensus surgery

We offer the entire spectrum of vaginal and laparoscopic descensus surgery, including mesh inserts.
Surgery for endometriosis

The ``golden standard`` in surgical treatment is laparoscopy. The aim of the procedure is to confirm the diagnosis and complete removal of all endometriosis foci, including partial bowel resection.

This technique allows direct access to the abdominal organs through three punctures (5-10mm) and thus prevents major surgical interventions. Almost all gynaecological surgeries can be performed in a minimally invasive way.
