Department of gynaecology and obstetrics
The department of gynaecology and obstetrics at Academic Hospital Sachsenhausen Frankfurt am Main is one of Germany's leading centres for minimally invasive gynaecological surgery. More than 2,500 minimally invasive operations on the pelvic organs and more than 1,000 surgical interventions are performed annually. In addition to surgical treatments, the department also deals with all diseases requiring conservative gynaecological treatment. Furthermore, doctors work closely with the interventional radiology department, which uses the most advanced imaging techniques for diagnosis. The department has an obstetrics department consisting of four delivery rooms, an operating room and two resuscitation stations for newborns. All rooms are warm and friendly and designed for maximum patient comfort. Midwives, pediatric nurses and doctors are always ready to help patients professionally and competently, so the department has founded a parents' school with an extensive program of courses.
The main focus is to treat mild and severe forms of endometriosis, benign and malignant diseases of the reproductive system. The department was the first to use tendon transfer surgery to treat abdominal pain and urinary disorders. Since 2012, 3D laparoscopy has also been widely used, thanks to which interventions are carried out much more accurately and safely.
