Range of services offered by the Urology Clinic


Traditionally, urology specialists are "men’s physicians".

We have medical council certification for andrology and offer specialist services in urology:

Paediatric urology

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.

Bed-wetting is also treated in the urology clinic (Uro-flow EMG measurement station/ biofeedback therapy) after examination by one of our urology specialists.

Sometimes our small urology patients are treated as in-patients in cooperation with the Mother-and-Child Centre.

Uro-oncology / Chemotherapy

The incidence of cancer in urology (uro-oncology) is high. Over 40% of German cancer cases fall under urology.

In Germany, there are almost 60,000 cases of prostate cancer - the most common cancer in men - annually. Bladder cancer is also increasing due to environmental influences and nicotine, also among women.

For cancer treatment in the area of urology, we work closely with the clinic radiologists and oncologists and specialists from other regions, e.g. the university clinics in Tübingen/ Ulm/Munich.

Testicular cancer is treated in cooperation with the "Second Opinion Centre" at Tübingen University Clinic.

Specialists treat urological cancer both at the urology practice and at the Clinic for Urology, Paediatric Urology and Uro-oncology.

Most chemotherapy is carried out on an out-patient basis at the urology department.

I am 57 yr old man presenting with severe pain in the tip of the penis. Sometimes severe burning sensation between the anus and testicles. No urinary symptoms. On examination: prostate was normal in size, not tender. Pelvic US revealed normal prostate size 17 gm, normal urinary bladder, and kidneys. PSA was low (0.14 ng). Urine analysis and cultures was normal. Prostate fluid analysis and culture were normal. Penile US and duplex were normal. The diagnosis is chronic pelvic pain syndrome. Can I find treatment for this condition.
Thank you very much
