We look after patients with benign and malignant diseases of the cervix, the uterus, the ovaries and – as treatment partner from the Breast Centre Eastern Saxony – diseases of the breast as well. Another, more delightful area in our clinic is that of obstetrics.
We treat all diseases of the female genital organs and the breast. In this regard, we focus on the surgical and conservative treatment of benign and malignant diseases of the cervix, the uterus, the ovaries and the breast. We look after our breast cancer patients in close cooperation with the Clinic for Plastic, Reconstructive and Breast Surgery in our Breast Centre Eastern Saxony.
All standard conservative and surgical procedures for benign diseases of the female genitals are provided. A significant portion of minor operations are conducted on outpatients or part-inpatients, depending on the indication (curettage, uterus endoscopy, laparoscopy, surgery on the cervix). We attempt to perform all surgery on the uterus and the ovaries primarily by means of laparoscopy (uterine adhesion, endometriosis, myomas, cysts). The uterus can be removed either via the vulva or by caesarean section. However, a large number of these procedures use laparoscopic methods without abdominal incisions (LASH, LAVH, TLH).
In cases of malignant diseases (vaginal, cervical, uterine body ovarian cancer), we apply conservative (chemotherapy, hormone therapy) and surgical procedures in accordance with the guidelines and depending on the stage of the illness. Simple tumour removal, special tumour operations (Wertheim, TMMR) and even extensive multi-organ surgery (multi-visceral intervention) are standard procedures at our clinic.
Treatment of functional disorders of the bladder (incontinence) and pelvic floor insufficiency (descensus) take place in our Pelvic Floor Centre. Run by the Gynaecological Clinic, the centre applies an interdisciplinary approach to diagnostics (urodynamics, physiotherapy) and even specialised surgical procedures (TVT, TVTO, MESH). Patients also receive support in special surgery hours.
Tumour cases at our clinic are discussed by the Tumour Board. Where special questions arise, we present our patients to the Tumour Board at Charité Berlin. Treatment of breast cancer (breast carcinoma) takes place in our Breast Centre under the joint directorship of the chief physicians at the Gynaecological Clinic and the Clinic for Plastic Surgery. Our interdisciplinary team ensures that we can help all affected women and men, from diagnostics (breast screening), conservative and surgical treatments, through to secondary plastic reconstruction of the breast. Tumour aftercare takes place in special surgery hours.
A new and eventful period in life begins with the birth of your child. We assist expecting parents during pregnancy and provide a modern obstetrics department that satisfies all requirements of an alternative, family-centric birth procedure, as well as fulfilling high medical requirements. We prefer spontaneous childbirth, even in cases of breech presentation or twins. A theatre is on hand in the birthing room to provide for caesarean sections. Midwives, paediatricians and anaesthesiologists are on call in the clinic 24/7. It is not necessary to register in advance to give birth. Even after childbirth, we continue to support you with instruction and assistance, as well as a programme of courses.

Our services also include support for expectant mothers with diabetes and all risk pregnancies, including birth planning.
The coincidence of diabetes and pregnancy is a high-risk situation for the mother and the child. Our support team in the special surgery hours seeks to ensure close interdisciplinary collaboration between the clinical and practising GP, diabetologist, gynaecologist and paediatrician in order to guarantee excellent standards of medical support. Special examination methods are available, such as chromosome determination through amniocentesis, ultrasound examination for the early detection of malformations, circulation measurements in the mother's and the child's systems, as well as computer-assisted metabolic monitoring.
Please call us for further information and appointments
The birthing room is located in the 1st floor of Building C. At least one midwife and one obstetrician are on site 24/7. All three birthing rooms are equipped with comfortable, broad and modern delivery beds. This is mainly where 'normal', individual and personalised childbirth takes place. A bathtub, a birthing stool, wall rungs, a rope, mats and balls are also available.
Naturally, you can bring your favourite music to help relax.
The theatre is located directly in the birthing room and is used only for caesarean sections. Obstetricians, paediatricians and anaesthesiologists are on call at the clinic 24/7 and therefore continuously available.
The adjacent Paediatric Clinic has a Premature Birth Ward to look after the children. We look after a high percentage of risk pregnancies thanks to our Infant Intensive Care Unit as a hospital specialised in perinatology. The Infant Intensive Care Unit has 6 respirator beds for premature or late births with breathing disorders.
Pain therapy during childbirth
Naturally, we have a variety of methods available to make childbirth easier:
- Epidural anaesthesia
- Local anaesthetic methods
- Medicinal treatment
- Liftan (laughing gas)
- Birth tub
The gentle caesarian section
This is a surgical procedure in which the abdominal wall is not completely opened by incision with scissors, but above all bluntly separated using a special technique. The benefit is the low blood loss. This method has been used in the Gynaecological Clinic for some years. If the C-section is performed with spinal anaesthetic (or epidural anaesthesia), the expectant fathers or another companion can remain in the theatre.
If the birth has proceeded well and both mother and child are in a good state of health, it is possible on request to return home, 4 to 6 hours after delivery. We request that you organise aftercare with a midwife in good time. You should also make contact with the paediatrician to organise the first and second screening examination of your child, or who would be available in the event of problems.
Mother's milk is the best possible nutrition for a newborn child. This is why we would like to support you and provide advice about breastfeeding. The close contact between the mother and the child from the very beginning is an important foundation. The baby is placed in the mother's arms in the birthing room, even after a caesarean section. There are breastfeeding counsellors and a collection point for mother's milk in our clinic. The German Nutrition Society (DGE) recommends that infants are breastfed exclusively for four and ideally six months.
In our 1-2 bed rooms, we offer you extensive support in looking after your newborn child in the days after childbirth, for instance nappy changing, bathing, breastfeeding, and restoring your strength after the birth.
Naturally, your partner can spend a lot of time with you in our Postpartum Ward. We established 24-hour rooming-in quite some time ago to help young families get used to each other and to promote the bond between parents and child, as well as to help with breastfeeding. Here, the mother and the child share the same room.
