About the department

The department of mammology, obstetrics and gynaecology at Helios Hospital Berlin-Buch is certified by the German Cancer Society as a gynaecological cancer centre, and dysplasia consultation centre, and the head of the department is a certified continence specialist. Medical care at the highest level is essential for the department's team - true to their motto "safe & individual". More than 3,000 children see the light of day in these obstetrics wards every year. A caring atmosphere and professional staff ensure that mothers experience the birth of their children as safely and comfortably as possible. Cancer therapy is a main priority. The interdisciplinary teamwork of doctors from different specialist groups is a prerequisite for a reliable diagnosis and optimal cancer therapy. Through cooperation, local professionals enable cancer patients to receive individual and optimal therapy. In addition, the self-help project EVA supports women affected with breast cancer.

The range of treatment and diagnosis includes breast diseases (mammology), gynaecology, and obstetrics. Cancer treatment, including novel treatment methods in clinical studies, are available following the latest guidelines. Support through rehabilitation and psychological counselling is also provided.
