Usually, treatments in our urology practice in Germany are performed on an out-patient basis, using the latest methods (ultrasound devices with colour duplex, flexible instruments for pain-free inspection of the urethra and the bladder) and low-radiation digital X-rays (uro-radiology).
Examinations by our urology specialists are also performed at the Clinic for Urology, Paediatric Urology and Uro-oncology in Friedrichshafen, Germany.
This ensures competent, personal specialist treatment during and after your visit to the urology practice or the Urology Clinic.

The Group Practice for Urology and the Clinic for Urology, Paediatric Urology and Uro-oncology in Friedrichshafen, Germany, places strong focus on paediatric urology.
Common disorders of the external genitalia of boys - phimosis (tight foreskin) or cryptorchidism (undescended testicles) - are treated on an out-patient basis. Complex procedures in urology (hypospadias correction with mucosal grafting), urinary flow and upper urinary tract disorders, (obstructions of the pelvic-ureteric junction), ectopic ureter (reflux) and lower urinary tract obstructions are also performed at the urology clinic.
These procedures are mostly performed by laparoscopic surgery or with the da Vinci Si HD surgical robot.

Sometimes our small urology patients are treated as in-patients in cooperation with the Mother-and-Child Centre.
The incidence of cancer in urology (uro-oncology) is high. Over 40% of German cancer cases fall under urology.
