Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics of Kiel
Prof. Dr. Nicolai Maass
The aim of the department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology in Kiel
is to combine innovative medical treatment with patient- orientated care.
Our specialists offer care for women of all ages.
We have experienced staff and state of the art equipment to enable us to perform a full range of tests, ultrasound examinations, and a wide range of surgical procedures.
We offer care for normal pregnancies, those which are high-risk (pregnancy complicated by diabetes or collagen vascular diseases or abnormal ultrasound findings) and pregnancies with unusual problems. Our suite of individual delivery rooms, each with its own birthing pool, provide a calm, relaxed and comfortable environment during labour, and are all discreetly equipped with the most up-to-date medical equipment. Specialist doctors and nurses and an intensive care unit for newborn babies are available in the same building if they should be needed.
All problems of the female reproductive tract, including cancer of the female genital tract, infertility, hormonal replacement problems, abnormal genital pain or bleeding, and sexually transmitted diseases can be treated in the clinic.
Prenatal genetic diagnostic services include amniocentesis, chorionic villus sampling, high-risk ultrasound, recurrent pregnancy loss assessment, preconception counselling, and teratogen risk assessments. We also offer infertility diagnosis and assisted conception treatments, such as artificial insemination, ovulation induction and fallopian tube recanalisation.
Our specialists also treat problems involving female urinary incontinence. The clinic has a specialist department for diseases of the breast. We have established the first certified breast cancer centre in Germany. If there are areas inside the breast which concern us, computer-assisted samples (biopsies) can be taken. All women come to the breast centre as out-patients, so this procedure can be carried out with the least stress for the patient. If a diagnosis of breast cancer is made from the sample (biopsy), all modern methods of treatment are available here under one roof.
We have a working group that cares for the needs of patients with hereditary breast and ovarian cancer.
Amongst other areas of research in the hospital, we also participate in and carry out studies involving pharmacotherapy (the treatment of disease using medicines) for patients with breast or any kind of genital cancer. We have weekly meetings with other medical experts, and will aim to find a satisfactory treatment for each individual woman.
We hope you have a good idea of what to expect when you come to our clinic in Kiel.
We warmly welcome you, and will make every effort to make your stay with us as pleasant and as comfortable as possible.
