Inflammations and tumours of the pancreas are diagnosed and treated by a team of experts from various fields, who apply both conservative and surgical procedures. The specialists at the center have extensive experience with both benign symptoms, as well as with malignant conditions in all stages of the disease. The Prostate Centre at Asklepios Klinikum Hamburg is the world’s first clinic to apply the particularly gentle ultrasound-guided surgical robot Aquabeam, utilizing automated tissue resection for the treatment of LUTS due to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) with numerous advantages for the patient.
