In addition to conventional urological treatment, we offer a multitude of specialized treatment options such as extracorporeal shockwave lithotrypsy, minimal invasive endoscopic surgery, minimal invasive prostate treatment, complex urodynamic evaluation and extensive reconstructive surgery for all urological disorders. Approximately 2000 patients (including day care clinic)receive inpatient treatment every year with an additional 500 day care patients.
