Urology is the study of the organs that produce and transport urine (kidneys, ureter, bladder, urethra) and the external genitals (in men: penis and testicles; in women: vulva and vagina) and the associated diseases. The urologist treats these diseases in men and women, starting with the newborn (e.g. narrowing of the foreskin, undescended testicles, urinary congestion in the kidneys, urinary tract infections, etc.) up to old age. Significant findings and technical advances have significantly improved the urological treatment options in all areas over the last 20 years. For example, most kidney stone diseases today almost never require open surgery. Thanks to improved instruments, numerous urological diseases can be successfully treated without an incision operation. Minimally invasive procedures such as the so-called “buttonhole surgery” (laparoscopy) are now standard procedures for urological diseases. Nevertheless, there are still cutting operations that are still unavoidable in some urological diseases.

Treatment focus:

  • kidney and bladder diseases
  • urological cancer treatment (“uro-oncology”)
  • Prostate prevention and treatment
  • Diseases of the penis and testicles
  • stone diseases
  • sexual dysfunctions
  • unfulfilled desire to have children
  • hormonal imbalances in men
  • incontinence therapy

sports promotion

Physical activity and the joy of movement have accompanied me throughout my life. It was and has always been important to me to know my physical limits and to try to improve my performance through constant exertion. It was also important to convey this joy to my children, as the harmony with nature and body enabled me to find inner peace even in stressful situations and to make those decisions that should be well thought out and not made hastily.

For this reason, it was and is important to me to make my good experiences through sport possible for others. For this reason, I like to support children and young people who need time for themselves, especially in these stressful and difficult times – sport has repeatedly made this possible for me combined with the experience of group dynamics that individual and team sports offer.
