About the department

The department of gynaecology, mammology, and obstetrics at Nordwest Hospital Frankfurt am Main specializes in diagnosing and treating female reproductive system diseases. The department is also one of the leading prenatal centres in Germany. The department offers modern ultrasound examinations to monitor the pregnancy in all trimesters and detect pathologies in the development of the fetus in time. The medical team consists of obstetricians, gynaecologists and nursing staff who provide medical care around the clock in urgent clinical cases. The department presents all types of anaesthesia, including epidural anaesthesia and alternative methods. All delivery rooms are made in bright colours and equipped with modern equipment for safe delivery. Thanks to highly qualified obstetricians, more than 800 babies are born in the department annually.

In gynaecology, one of the department's priority areas is the treatment of malignant diseases of the female genital organs. Treatment is preceded by a complex of diagnostic measures, including high-resolution ultrasound, X-ray methods, endoscopy and biopsy. Gynaecologists offer both conservative and surgical treatments. Treatment is carried out closely with visceral surgeons, urologists, internal oncologists, radiation therapists and pathologists. The excellent results of the surgeons were recognized by the well-known Focus magazine, which included the department in the list of the best in Germany for the surgical treatment of gynaecological diseases.
