Take heart from treatment advances

Patients, relatives and loved ones,

Receiving a prostate cancer diagnosis might be the first time in your life you have had to face a very serious illness. You are likely at an age at which you hope to start reaping the fruits of your labour: taking more time for yourself, spending time with your family and realising your dreams. Yet, this diagnosis can cast doubt on everything.

In this situation, we want to give you reason to take heart. There have been rapid advances in the treatment of prostate cancer over the last three decades. At the University Medical Centre Hamburg-Eppendorf (UKE) and the Martini-Klinik, we are proud to have contributed to this progress. Cure rates have improved continuously and huge strides forward have been taken in preserving continence and potency after treatment. The Martini-Klinik’s use of unique surgical methods and the NeuroSAFE technique has made it a global leader.

On this website, we aim to help guide you through to process of making decisions about the next steps in your life. At the same time, we hope to help you get to know the Martini-Klinik a little better. You will undoubtedly notice that ours is a very special clinic, characterised by medical excellence, human compassion and a pleasant atmosphere.

Don’t hesitate to contact us directly if you have any questions.

Best wishes,
