A unique clinic

Our recipe for success is no secret – quite the opposite. Ever since our clinic was established, we have adhered to the basic principle of optimising outcome quality and remain firmly convinced that this overarching goal should guide the actions of every medical facility.

Three special features, one network

Deep specialisation in a single disease

The Martini-Klinik is one of very few clinics to have specialised in the diagnosis and treatment of a single disease. We have deepened this specialisation over the years, as every consultant at our clinic has developed a further specialisation within the field of prostate cancer. Combined with the high numbers of patients treated, this has enabled us to acquire a wealth of experience, knowledge and skill. The Martini-Klinik covers all areas of modern prostate cancer diagnostics and treatment, including complete surgical removal, focal treatment, radiotherapy and drug therapies, as well as advice on complementary medicine and psycho-oncological support.

A university-based network of excellence

Last but not least, the Martini-Klinik is not a stand-alone private clinic in the middle of the countryside. Our building is at the heart of the University Medical Centre Hamburg-Eppendorf (UKE) campus. Input from experts in various disciplines at UKE benefits our patients at the Martini-Klinik. This is thanks to excellent collaboration with colleagues in all other disciplines in our joint prostate cancer centre.

And these are the results...

Special surgical techniques at the Martini-Klinik

Removing the prostate while preserving the patient’s continence and potency is the aim of every radical prostatectomy. This difficulty is inherent to the operation because the urethra runs through the prostate and the delicate neurovascular structures surrounding the organ must be spared to preserve the patient’s continence and erectile function. We strive to preserve the nerve bundle using frozen section analysis – our Pathology department examines the prostate immediately after the organ’s removal, while the surgery is still ongoing. The full length of the urethral sphincter is also spared and retained. In most cases, this approach preserves patients’ continence and potency at same level as before the operation.

Excellent consultancy skills

We use the data on the long-term outcomes achieved for past patients – who now number over 34,000 – to advise patients choosing a treatment strategy regarding the chances of a cure and preserving their continence and potency. We are proud to say that very few clinics around the world have such well-founded quality control systems based on outcome data.

Science-based expertise 

Research is the key to optimising the diagnosis and treatment of tumour diseases. The doctors and researchers at the Martini-Klinik have achieved outstanding results through years of intensive research into prostate carcinoma.
