Department of gynecology and obstetrics
The department of gynaecology and obstetrics at Academic Hospital zum Heiligen Geist Frankfurt am Main accompanies families during childbirth and treats women with gynaecological diseases. Pregnancy and delivery are the most emotional moments in a woman's life. Therefore, doctors do their best to make delivery as pleasant as possible in a personal atmosphere in the department. Highly-qualified specialists monitor the course of pregnancy in all trimesters. Obstetricians offer all common postures for childbirth and support the patient during birth and breastfeeding. Doctors prefer natural childbirth, but a caesarean section can be performed if necessary. Every year, more than 1,000 babies are born in the delivery rooms of the department.
An experienced medical team also specialises in treating gynaecological neoplastic diseases, special surgical gynaecology and minimally invasive endoscopic surgical interventions. The diagnostic protocol for suspected gynaecological cancer includes laboratory tests, tomography, and invasive diagnostic procedures. In addition, an integral part of the department's work is the diagnosis and treatment of breast diseases, especially breast cancer.
