Taking care of women's health is one of the medical sciences top priorities. German doctors are renowned specialists in all fields of gynaecology, including reconstructive surgery, gynaecological oncology, reproductive, prenatal and perinatal medicine.
Gynaecologists effectively treat a variety of conditions such as hormonal disorders, genital cancer, urogenital infections, urinary incontinence, all degrees of uterine prolapse, benign formations (uterine myoma), endometriosis of various degrees, ovarian cysts and cervical pathology. Doctors are all highly specialised professionals able to carry out prompt and precise diagnosis regardless of the stage of the disease and prescribe effective treatment using conventional methods. When surgical intervention is required, physicians use the most gentle, least invasive methods. This reduces blood loss during surgery and risk of injury to neighbouring organs, as well as any risk of post-op complications. Hospitalisation and rehabilitation times are also shortened.
Gynaecological oncology is one of the most in-demand sub-sectors of gynaecology and includes treatment of malignant tumours in various areas of the female reproductive system. This includes, among other things, malignant gynaecological carcinomas (breast, ovarian, cervical, endometrial, vaginal and vulva cancer). German doctors have achieved remarkable recovery rates of over 70% for cervical tumours.
Issues surrounding motherhood are the focus of much attention in Germany. Great care has been given to creating safe and pleasant conditions for safe delivery. Obstetricians' key priority is to create both physically and psychologically comfortable conditions for a woman going into labour.
Pregnancy planning begins with a thorough assessment of a future mother and a foetus. Various non-invasive tests and procedures (mother's blood analysis, ultrasound) help detect abnormalities in a foetus at an early stage. Invasive methods such as puncture of the amniotic fluid or the umbilical cord are also available when needed. Based on the results of these examinations, it is possible to fairly accurately predict the anticipated course of pregnancy. Interdisciplinary cooperation between obstetricians, anesthetists, geneticists, psychologists, social workers, physiotherapists, nutritionists and neonatologists plays an important role in the pregnancy planning process.
Those in higher potential risk group (due to age or underlying health conditions, multiple pregnancies) are carefully monitored and undergo preventive treatments aimed at minimizing complications.
Today, more than 40% of all women give birth later than the expected date of birth. In many cases, there is a need for surgical intervention such as a scheduled or emergency Caesarean section. This happens when the umbilical cord falls out, the birth halts or the foetus assumes an incorrect position in the womb. Subsequent care of the mother may also require minor surgical interventions, such as when a vaginal or perineal rupture occurs.
