Gynaecology deals with the female sexual organs, and includes precautionary screenings such as cervical smear tests or breast examinations, as well as advice on contraception, incontinence, fertility treatment and problems in menopause. The gynaecologist examines diseases of the female sexual organs in depth, and determines the appropriate treatment measures such as medication and/or operative procedures.
The specialist centres at the Klinik Im Park enable rapid clarification, careful diagnosis and comprehensive advice using the most up-to-date treatment techniques. The specialists at the centres make every effort to offer reliable and personalised consultations. If necessary, they work with specialist doctors from oncology and radiology.
The gynaecologist is the specialist for the female sexual organs. He conducts regular preventive medical checkups, such as smear tests of the cervix (the mouth of the womb) and breast screening. He advises women of all ages on questions of contraception, infertility and problems with the menopause.
When dealing with disorders of the female sexual organs he conducts the appropriate tests and organises the appropriate treatment. He is able to make use of a variety of drugs or – if called for – surgical interventions. The gynaecologist who has had the appropriate surgical training can, for instance, carry out a sterilisation or a hysterectomy (where the womb is removed).
The obstetrician is concerned with everything to do with pregnancy. He advises and examines future mothers during this period of their lives and is generally responsible for what goes on during the birth. With the appropriate surgical training he can – if necessary – even carry out a caesarean section. After the birth he undertakes the initial care of the newborn and advises the mother after she has given birth, and addresses any other medical issues she may have.
Oncology is the study of a variety of tumours, namely the various cancers that can affect a human being. The word 'cancer' covers approximately 150 variations of one disease, the characteristic of which is the uncontrolled division of cells of an organ or tissue. Cancers of the breast, lung, intestine and prostate gland must be the best-known and most common. For a long time now, breast cancer has been the most common cancer to affect women, whilst men suffer most from lung cancer. The symptoms of cancer, as well as the chances of recovery from it, vary widely and depend on the structure, size and location of the tumour.
If cancer is suspected, the oncologist will initiate a series of tests. The results of these tests determine the further course of action. The oncologist will decide, for example, which drug should best be used in chemotherapy, or whether it might be better to remove a tumour surgically. In some cases, the oncologist will arrange for radiotherapy, where he will work closely with the radio-oncologist/radiotherapist, a specialist in radiotherapy.
He also treats the symptoms that accompany cancer, such as pain. He monitors the patient's recovery and carries out further tests.
