Why do patients with prostate cancer choose Asklepios Hospital for the treatment?

Prostate oncology is a common disease among men demanding the most careful treatment methods. The side effects make an impact on the sexual function. The network of Asklepios Medical Centers includes oncology departments with highly specialized physicians - that means that they choose one direction and improve themselves in it. But the decision on treatment strategy in Asklepios is made by the council of doctors where the oncology specialists, urologists, radiologists and pathologists take an informed decision. 92% of the patients admitted to Asklepios Oncocenters at the 1st-2nd stage of prostate cancer receive full recovery. For the patients at the later cancer stages the Clinic offers palliative medicine.

Brachytherapy for prostate cancer in Asklepios as the alternative to save preserve potency

Against the background of distant irradiation of the whole body which still remains the main method of prostate cancer treatment in many countries, the specialized clinics practice targeted radiotherapy and brachyherapy. This technique is a process of temporary implantation of radio particles into the patient’s body as close to carcinoma as it is possible. Besides the clinic practices radiofrequency ablation, chemotherapy and others.

Technical capabilities of the German clinic in oncology treatment

Traditional operations in 80% of prostate cancer removal cases lead to loss of sexual power, so the surgery precision is crucial. Modern medicine achieves such precision with the assistance of the da Vinci robotic surgery system. Asklepios uses the device of the 4s generation, by means of which surgeon performs surgeries with minimum risks.

Oncology center Barmbek is situated on the clinic’s 3rd floor where the patient may receive consultation of related professionals. The Department is headed by the Oncology Professor Chief Dr.Axel Stang.

  • traditional surgical interference;
  • irradiation on IMRT technology and immunotherapy for early stages.

The complex of the offered services also includes the installation of port-catheters, ascite drainages and targeted ultrasound radiofrequency ablation of tumors.

In additions, Asklepios doctors conduct genotyping of cancer cells in order to choose effective chemotherapy drugs for the treatment of prostate cancer.
