Professor Margit Fisch: Medical expertise on hand at the University Medical Centre Hamburg-Eppendorf

At Hamburg-Eppendorf University Medical Centre (UKE), Professor Margit Fisch heads up the Department and Clinic of Urology, which offers modern, patient-oriented medical care tailored to individual needs.

Urology Department

The expertise of the Urology Department covers the entire spectrum of urology, including paediatric urology, reconstructive urology, uro-oncology and the removal of kidney stones with modern techniques. Using the latest equipment, our department also carries out photodynamic diagnosis to visualise and treat tumours of the bladder and offers a comprehensive range of minimally invasive keyhole procedures (all types, including those assisted by the Da Vinci® robot) and neuromodulation (the stimulation of nerves to treat urination difficulties).

Facts and figures

In 2011 the Urology Department performed 213 urethra reconstructions, putting it in a leading position in Germany. Together with the Martini Hospital, 2,225 radical prostatectomies were carried out on patients suffering from prostate cancer. Our two institutions are therefore the world and European leaders in this field. The Urology Department also leads the way in reconstructive procedures on the exterior genitalia, bladder and kidney surgery and treatment of benign enlargement of the prostate using holmium laser therapy (HoLEP). In 2011 we also carried out 70 radical removals of the bladder (with bladder reconstructions), used the Da Vinci® robot system 391 times (UKE + Martini Hospital) and performed 53 traditional laparoscopies, 227 holmium laser prostate operations and 147 nephrectomies/partial kidney removals (open, laparoscopic, robot-assisted).

Plastic reconstructive urology

Plastic reconstructive procedures are a key focus of our department. These can be used to treat everything from congenital abnormalities to acquired diseases anywhere in the entire uro-genital tract. Our department is the national reference centre in the treatment of urethral constrictions, e.g. as a result of accidents, surgery or inflammation. Endoscopic, laparoscopic, minimally invasive and open reconstructive procedures are used for this purpose. Furthermore, we offer a range of surgical interventions to correct bent penises and penis malformations.

Paediatric urology

Paediatric operations are another specialist area (correction of engorged kidneys caused by obstructions or constrictions of the renal pelvis and hypospadias corrections). For these, we work in close cooperation with the Department for Paediatric Surgery at Altona Children’s Hospital, headed by Professor Reinshagen.

Treatment options for urinary incontinence

For patients afflicted by stress incontinence, we offer various operations to elevate the pelvic floor, and in more severe cases we can implant artificial sphincter systems.

Urological oncology

The Urology Department treats all urological tumour-related diseases on an interdisciplinary basis together with other specialists working at the University Hospital’s Comprehensive Cancer Centre (UCCC). Radical removal of the kidney as a means of treating non-metastasised renal cell carcinoma is one of the surgery options available in addition to partial removal of the kidney in cases of smaller renal tumours (up to 7cm) or for indications where there is no other choice, e.g. in patients who only have one kidney. Treatment of non-metastasised urothelial cell carcinoma is offered in both the superficial and the muscular invasion stage. If the bladder has to be surgically removed, we offer all modern solutions that work in lieu of this organ. The treatment of testicular tumours is a routine service at our department. The head of this specialist field is Dr Hartmann, who is renowned throughout Germany as the former Senior Consultant of the German Federal Armed Forces Hospital.


Research is a key requirement for making advances in diagnostics, staging and therapy. We engage in both basic and clinical research. Of all clinics in Germany, we publish some of the highest numbers of research papers in respected international journals.

What travellers from around the world are saying


1000 e 1 passagem

Em Neustadt tem a Kunsthofphpassage, que é uma passagem incrível. Ela tem vários prédios "temáticos". O azul por exemplo quando chove, a água nos canos vira música. Fora os prédios, ainda tem várias lojas bacanas e cafés charmosos para você aproveitar. #youngDresden #mustsees #shopping #cafés

Zwinger Palace

O Chateau de Versailles de Dresden

O Zwinger Palace é um dos melhores exemplos da arquitetura barroca tardia na Alemanha. Construído entre 1710 e 1728 pelo arquiteto Pöppelmann, o Palácio Zwinger foi usado para grandes festas e torneios. Hoje, o complexo barroco de pavilhões, galerias e pátios interiores é a casa de grandes museus e obras. A Madonna Sistina de Rafael você encontrará lá. O acervo de Porcelana tambem é belíssimo. O Arsenal também é muito interessante se você curte trajes e armas. Se você não quiser entrar em nenhum museu, vá pelo menos para andar pelos jardins e admirar o "Kronentor", que é o portão com a coroa.

Asisi Panometer

Dresden : 1945

Setenta anos depois do bombardeio de Dresden, na Segunda Guerra Mundial, um panorama de 360 ​​graus que mostra a cidade destruída foi revelado na cidade. O artista Yadegar Asisi criou uma imagem circular de 100 metros de largura e 30 metros de altura que mostra Dresden após os devastadores ataques aéreos dos aliados. Entre 13-15 fevereiro de 1945, apenas alguns meses antes do fim da guerra, os bombardeiros britânicos e norte-americanos destruíram mais de 90 por cento do centro histórico da cidade, matando cerca de 25.000 pessoas. Mais de 3.900 toneladas de bombas de alto poder explosivo e dispositivos incendiários dizimaram marcos importantes do barroco em uma cidade que é considerada "a Florença do Elba". O panorama, Dresden: 1945, fica aberto de 24 de Janeiro à 31 de maio de 2015, no gasômetro Panometer.

Frauenkirche - Church of Our Lady

A Lady de Dresden

A Igreja da Nossa Senhora de Dresden é um espetáculo de linda. É a igreja que vai te impactar no primeiro minuto que você entrar e ver uma igreja branca, super luminada.

Durante a Segunda Guerra Mundial, a igreja foi bombardeada e ficou em escombros até 1994, quando um programa de restauração foi iniciado. Hoje, é um lembrete dos dias antes da guerra e um dos lugares que você vai ter uma história imparcial sobre a Segunda Guerra Mundial.

Christmas Markets in Cologne

Christmas in Germany

Christmas may be over, but 11 months from now the season will be upon us and you should spend 2015 in Germany! Why? The Christmas season is in Germany is like no other. There is no other place in the world where you can experience countless, and famous, Christmas markets that will without a doubt, put you in the holiday spirit. While the markets are open all day, it’s best to visit at night. Many towns across Germany have decorated the streets and market squares with evergreen-lined stalls, twinkling lights and religious (and not so religious) statues to kick off the holiday season as festively as possible. If you are a foreigner in Germany at this time of year, it's difficult to miss home when Germany puts on an excellent show at Christmas time. No matter what German city you are in, you can find families and friends of all ages, walking around shopping for unique and traditional gifts, sipping on mulled wine and indulging in delicious German food. You will hear laughter amongst the Christmas carols that will make you forget about your toes and fingers tingling from the cold temperature at this time of year. It’s truly a traditional delight for all of the senses. No trip to the German Christmas markets is complete without trying a class of glühwein, which is a combinations of red wine, spices and sugar. This traditional drink will keep you cozy and happy. Hungry? No problem! There are many stalls that sell traditional German Christmas Market food and snacks for you to enjoy such as bratwurst, mutzen, schmachtlappen and reibekuchen. In a world where Christmas present shopping consists of the latest technology and thoughtless gift certificates, it’s nice to be able to find traditional hand carved gifts at several stalls. Not to mention, mountains of oranges and nuts, the original gift that St. Nicholas gave to people hundreds of years ago at this time of year. While many countries around the world celebrate Christmas, no other place does it like Germany. So, if you feel that this time of year has been lacking in holiday spirit, take a trip over to this European country and be reminded what Christmas time is all about.

Canadians First Time at a Traditional Co-ed Spa

Visiting a co-ed spa was a foreign concept to me, being born and raised in Canada. Nudity in my culture is reserved for your own home where some have issues looking at themselves in the mirror. The gym change room is another publicly acceptable nude room, many of us have mastered the art of undressing by using a towel without exposing our private parts. My wife, Kristen, and I walked into that spa and let go of our Canadian mentalities. I undressed in the co-ed change room next to a woman in her 60s. She had kind eyes, a warm smile and no knowledge of nude shame as she stripped down without embarrassment. Kristen and I entered the spa, dropped our towels and were liberated, free for all to gaze upon! There were adults of all ages and body type, casually conversing as if being nude was more comfortable than being clothed. I had to constantly remind myself that people are not judgemental of bodies here, something I have never experienced in North America. Nudity is very much a part of the culture here. This German spa was the first place I have experienced harmony and equality among class, age, sex. Nobody knows whether you walked in with an Armani suit or a ripped t-shirt, you are all equal, beautiful and free. I immediately felt unjudged and part of the community. The architecture and decor of the spa was heavenly. Stone tiles lead the way to a large open room with lounging chairs and a marble swimming pool. The ambiance is zen, with only the sound of calm conversations and light background music. Buddha heads, candles, bamboo designs and waterfalls decorate the many rooms with relaxation and beauty. The outdoor rooftop contained hot tubs and saunas to keep you warm and steamy as well as cold pools and a bucket of snow used to cool your body down before jumping back into the hot tub. I left with my body relaxed, my skin clean, and my mind at peace. I learned that the human body is a beautiful gift which should be appreciated and accepted. Nudity is our original state and should be more widely accepted.

Herrenhauser Gärten Grotto

Niki the St.-Phalle at her best

A couple of years ago a very wealthy friend of mine, who owns an work of art by French artist Niki de St.-Phalle, told me included Hannover in a trip to Europe just to see Nikki's art in town. I had totally forgotten this until I came to Hannover and found out that Niki's works are all over the place. There are three Nanas in the Sculpture Mile downtown and an ancient grotto at the Herrenhauser Gardens was redone by Niki, who filled with her Nanas, a colorful Ganesha and a myriad of kaleidoscopic mirrors. Before her death, she donated her private collection to Hannover's Sprengel Museum, and will appear in the new wing due to open late in 2016.
