On this page we give you an overview over our services and some pre-informations for our patients.
As gynaecologists, we see ourselves as “doctors for women” and we consider our patients holistically. Care of our patients includes closing potential gaps in vaccinations, giving booster vaccinations, and vaccinating when patients were not previously vaccinated, to bring them up to date.
As they can prevent certain diseases, vaccinations are extremely important. It is not only you who benefits, but also your families, friends, and your entire environment.
As well as all of the available standard vaccinations, we can of course also provide the vaccination against cervical cancer and genital warts. This is especially important for young patients prior to having sexual intercourse for the first time. However, this vaccination can also make sense for women over the age of 18. Just contact us if you’d like to discuss it.
Vaccinations are of particular importance to us. If you bring your vaccination card to your next check-up, we can go through it with you. This is especially important prior to a planned pregnancy.
Even though it may only be at certain stages, contraception plays an important role in many women’s lives. There are many contraception options available and our job is to find the right method for you. Detailed advice is essential, and so we talk to you about your current wishes and your stage of life in order to find the method that suits you best. Any of the current methods can be applied at our practice.
As well as preventing pregnancy, contraception can also have other positive secondary effects (e.g. clearer skin when taking the pill, less pain during menstruation when using a hormone coil, etc.). The range of options is so diverse that we would need to discuss this with you personally, and we would be happy to do so at any time. We can give you the advice that you need.
This is the beginning of an exciting time through which we can guide you competently and safely. Even during the “planning phase” prior to a pregnancy, we can advise you and provide you with important information, tips, and assistance. The sequence of examinations to be carried out in the course of your pregnancy is established by law in the maternity directive and is documented in your maternity log. Thus you are supported through the entire pregnancy.
There are also some other examinations that are a good idea but for which your health insurance often does not cover the costs. We can discuss these and explain them to you in detail at your first antenatal check-up. As well as the standard ultrasound examinations, in our practice, we can also carry out Doppler sonographies (very important in high-risk pregnancies), 3D, and 4D examinations. As part of prenatal diagnosis, we can carry out the first trimester screening (nuchal scan and biochemical markers) and a non-invasive blood test to detect specific chromosomal abnormalities.
Sterility diagnostic testing
We can also be on hand with help and support in the event that you should find it more difficult than expected to get pregnant. After taking a basic medical history and performing a gynaecological examination and an ultrasound, blood tests are carried out for further clarification.
If it is necessary, we can carry out a hysteroscopy and laparoscopy in a short outpatient operation. This allows us to find out more and then give you expert advice based on the findings.
Regular check-ups at our practice (at least once a year, or even twice a year if necessary) enable the rapid detection of malignant diseases or their preliminary stages. The emphasis is on the female sexual organs, although each of our patients is always considered and treated as a whole person. As well as the cervical smear test (Pap smear) and gynaecological palpation of the lower female genitals and the rectum, a palpation examination of the breasts is also carried out.
In the event of any abnormal changes in the cervix, the vagina, or the external genitalia, we can take specific samples using a special microscope (colposcope) and start targeted therapy depending on the findings. The so-called colposcopy is a focal point in our consultation. There are also other useful examinations, which we would be happy to discuss with you in person.
Oncology and tumour aftercare
In the case of a malignant disease, we also remain as your contact point in parallel with any treatment in hospital. We treat you according to oncological guidelines and provide your closely-linked aftercare. We can also arrange for any other examinations that may be necessary and
we always work very closely with the treating clinics in the region. Just like the certified breast care centres, our practice also participates in the disease management programme (DMP). This involves continuous advanced training and professional development in the field of breast cancer.
Prolapse can occur in the area of the female genitals in the course of a woman’s life. It is characterised by descent of the female organs, which can result in problems. The causes are many and varied. However, the correct diagnosis is the first step to targeted therapy. In addition to the conservative methods, that is, the non-surgical methods of treatment (e.g. pessary treatment, tampon treatment), there are also many other treatment options. Here, we work very closely with the pelvic floor unit and the urogynaecological department at St. Josef’s Hospital in Wiesbaden. We would be happy to advise you and carry out an examination in this regard during our consultation.
At any stage of a woman’s life she may find that she is unable to retain urine. This can sometimes be a temporary condition, but in other cases it can be chronic. There are various forms of incontinence,
and our practice also focuses on the treatment of these dysfunctions. Following the diagnosis, the appropriate treatment can be started. Treatment can be provided, even for “persistent” cases, in close cooperation with the pelvic floor unit at St. Josef’s Hospital in Wiesbaden.
This can be a time of particular adjustment for the body. The progressive fluctuations in hormone production by the ovaries between the ages of 45 and 55 are responsible for the change.
Typical symptoms are hot flushes, mood swings, sleep disturbances, bone atrophy, and dryness of the mucous membranes. These problems can severely restrict the quality of life, but there are many treatment options – just contact us.
Interventions that do not require a stay in hospital can be carried out by us under anaesthetic on an outpatient basis. In the case of abnormalities in the area of the uterine cavity (such as abnormal bleeding of any kind or thickening of the mucous membranes), we can have a look into this cavity using a special camera (hysteroscope) and carry out a hysteroscopy. In the process, we can take samples and perform curettage.
In the sad event of a miscarriage, we can also treat the patient with curettage. If there are abnormalities in the cervix, we can excise a piece of the cervix if necessary (conisation).
In the case of lower abdominal problems or when carrying out diagnostic testing for sterility, we perform laparoscopies and we can test for tubal patency if necessary. We also treat and remove cysts and abscesses (accumulations of pus) in the region of the female genitals.
