Dear patient, dear relative,
you are presently confronted, possibly for the first time in your life, with the diagnosis of a serious illness - a prostate carcinoma. You have reached an age at which one normally harvests the fruits of many years of hard work; you would like to have more time to yourself and to spend time with your family, and maybe fulfil some dreams. But now the diagnosis seems to put all this at risk.
At this point, we would like to give you some words of encouragement. There have been great advances made in the treatment of prostate cancer in the last three decades, and we at the UKE and the Martini-Klinik are very proud of having contributed to this progress. The cure rate has risen steadily, and particularly great progress has been made in the preservation of continency and potency. The Martini-Klinik, due to unique surgical methods and the NeuroSAFE Technique, is the world's leading clinic in this regard.
The following pages will help you in the decision-making process that lies ahead of you. At the same time, you will get to know the Martini-Klinik a little better. You will discover that it is a unique clinic, characterized by its medical excellence, human warmth, and pleasant atmosphere.
Should you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us directly.
