Expert medical care at hospitals and rehabilitation clinics
Cancer treatment for women is in the hands of the finest and most experienced physicians here. At Nuremberg Hospital, Professor Cosima Brucker is recognised for her experience, quality and innovation in the treatment of cancer and other conditions.
Cosima Brucker has been head of the Department of Gynaecology and the adjoining certified Breast Cancer Centre since 2005. The Senior Consultant is recognised for her medical expertise, quality and international experience. She worked for many years in high-level, hands-on positions in gynaecology and in gynaecological oncology and also has experience in scientific research.
International focus – individual consultation
“The treatment of women, particularly those with cancer, places high demands on the treatment team,” says Professor Cosima Brucker. For her, it’s about giving her patients the best of all possible therapies. The senior consultant places great emphasis here on international quality standards as well as the latest scientific findings. “Quality and innovation have to go hand to hand,” she says. Her expectations both of herself and her team are extremely high. “With me, every detail has to be right,” she says.
Despite all this focus on treatment and quality, in her eyes one thing must never be forgotten – the person. “Every woman experiences her illness in a different way.” This focus on the patient as an individual is reflected in the consultations with Brucker, who is also experienced in treating people from other countries and continents. “My department,” she stresses, “has an international focus.”
The Department of Gynaecology at Nuremberg Hospital is one of the major surgical centres for women in Bavaria. All gynaecological conditions can be treated here. The spectrum of services includes both innovative, minimally invasive surgery and open surgery as well as laser procedures, incontinence and pelvic floor surgery, gynaecological oncology and endocrinology, oncological and mammoplastic surgery and drug-based tumour therapy.
Innovative cancer treatment – pointing the way forward
One of the main challenges of gynaecology is the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. The Department of Gynaecology at Nuremberg Hospital has a huge amount of experience in the treatment of all types of cancer and in particular the most frequently occurring carcinomas in women, namely breast cancer, cancer of the uterus, cervical cancer and ovarian cancer. When planning courses of treatment, the gynaecologists consult with a network of colleagues at Nuremberg Hospital. Each case and its treatment are discussed in ‘tumour boards’, interdisciplinary conferences involving specialists working in oncology, radiotherapy, radiology, pathology and, if required, plastic surgery. The value of this interdisciplinary collaboration is confirmed by studies looking into certified breast centres. They show that the quality of treatment in certified centres is significantly higher than in other hospitals. “Women should definitely undergo treatment in certified centres,” advises Brucker. Her entire department is certified, and the breast centre is additionally certified by the German Cancer Society and German Senology Society. The continence centre is approved by the German Continence Society.
“We always try to operate in a minimally invasive way and with a focus on maintaining organ integrity.”
In addition to the treatment of malignant tumours, regularly performed standard procedures include the treatment of ovarian cysts, myomas and endometriosis. The fertility of Brucker’s patients is always uppermost in her mind. “Many of the women who come to our department would still like to have a child. It is therefore particularly important for me as a surgeon to ensure my patients are still able to conceive.” To achieve her goals, Brucker uses minimally invasive procedures wherever possible. The department uses the latest high-end equipment including high-resolution HDTV imaging technology. “High technical standards contribute enormously to the safety and therefore the success of the treatment,” says the Senior Consultant.

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 #caféslue lisää »

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.lue lisää »
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. http://www.asisi.de/en/panoramas/dresden-1945/photo-gallery.htmllue lisää »

Christmas Markets in Cologne
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.lue lisää »
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.lue lisää »
Herrenhauser Gärten Grotto
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.lue lisää »
