With around 1,300 newborns a year, the department of gynaecology and obstetrics is one of the largest in Germany. The department also includes a certified Breast Cancer Centre where patients receive comprehensive care under one roof, from diagnostics to surgical treatment, post-radiation and oncological therapy. Additional attention is given to simultaneous plastic and reconstructive surgeries after breast and gynaecological malignancy.
