The Friedrichshafen clinic, Germany, is one of the leading medical facilities, specialized in the treatment of oncologic diseases, e.g. ovarian cancer - a frequent pathology that mainly occurs in women aged forty-fifty. In rare cases this disease can also develop in younger patients. In Friedrichshafen, the treatment of ovarian cancer is performed in the gynecology department as well as at the certified center of gynecological tumor treatment. The head of the department is Dr. Hans-Walter Vollert, a specialist with over 30 years of practical experience.
Timely diagnosing largely influences the rate of success in treatment of ovarian cancer. In the Friedrichshafen clinic, Germany, modern and precise diagnostic methods are applied. These may include:
Besides, a range of laboratory tests is made. The presence of abnormal cells in cervical fluid is detected by means of a Pap test.
The method of ovarian cancer treatment at our fertility clinic depends on the diagnostic results, the stage of the disease, individual peculiarities of the organism as well as the general condition of the patient. In the Friedrichshafen clinic, a complex approach is applied to ovarian cancer therapy. That is why the patient is usually attended by an experienced specialist team, e.g. an onco-gynecologist and a radiotherapy specialist.
Modern treatment methods include:
In the primary stages of the disease, laparoscopic surgery is offered to the women of reproductive age, willing to save fertility for the future (i.e. organ-saving surgery). Thus, depending on the stage of the disease, a single ovary resection, omentum resection, etc. may be necessary.
On more advanced stages, ovarian cancer and cervical cancer treatment usually requires a more serious surgical intervention, e.g. the resection of ovaries, uterus, uterine tubes and cervix. During such kind of surgery a specialist has to remove as much of the affected tissue as possible. Express-biopsy, usually conducted during the surgical intervention, allows the physician to get precise information on the tumor characteristics. After the surgery, the remaining pathologic areas are treated by means of chemotherapy.
The main emphasis in treating ovarian cancer is placed on using attenuated, minimally invasive surgical techniques. Apart from laparoscopic surgery, some German clinics also offer the so-called cyber knife surgery – an innovative method of radiosurgery. This method is suitable for various interferences. Apart from that, a course of preoperative chemotherapy might be conducted in order to reduce the size of the tumor.
