Ovarian cancer treatment / Top clinic in Germany, Friedrichshafen

Ovarian cancer treatment

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:

  • Ultrasound scan: The current technology allows, with 80% precision, to detect the disease in its earliest stages and start timely treatment;
  • Computer tomography (CT): This method allows performing differential diagnostics of ovarian cancer. As a result, a specialist is able to precisely detect the location of tumor tissue as well as define its structure and prevalence rate;
  • Biopsy: A diagnostic surgery that allows detecting the stage of pathological development of cancerous tissues. The procedure is conducted by means of laparoscopy.

Besides, a range of laboratory tests is made. The presence of abnormal cells in cervical fluid is detected by means of a Pap test.

Ovarian cancer treatment at the Friedrichshafen Clinic, Germany

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:

  • surgery;
  • chemotherapy or/ and hormone therapy;
  • radiotherapy.

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.

In the Friedrichshafen clinic ovarian cancer treatment is performed in full accordance with international standards. Don’t give up – ovarian cancer diagnosis is not a death sentence any more.

I am writing on behalf of my mother who currently is treatment on overian cancer. The cancer was diagnased in last year in June. For the reason, that this an advanced stage (V) of cancer in Polend, the doctors decided on chemotherapy and for July to November of last year she was treatment by carboplatin + Bevacizumab (5 infusions). Now only Bevacizumab is administered (1infusion per 3 weeks).

I am writing on behalf of my mother, operated in 2015 for ovarian cancer through hysterectomy, with complete cytostatic treatment. Over a period of 1 year there was no problem in the periodic analyzes performed. In April 2017, following an analysis in the pelvis area using a CT scan, there emerged a formation that, after an anatomo-pathological analysis, was found to be metastasized to cancer. The recommendation of doctors in Romania is chemo treatment.
I have the request to give me the opportunity to conduct a follow-up consultation in your clinic.
Best regards!
