Today, four and a half months after my operation (open surgery), performed by Dr. Salomon (neurosafe-based, nerve-sparing on both sides), I am very well.
Even though my lab results were alarming before the operation: Gleason score 3+4, PSA value: 63. Although the adenocarcinoma had proliferated outside the prostate capsule and there was tumor contact with the border of the surgical resection in 8 blocks, I can only sincerely thank Dr. Salomon and his “gifted hands” for the operation that saved my life. He ensured that neither the urethral sphincter muscle nor the nerves that influence continence and potency were impaired.
In this clinic there are only Ronaldos or Messis as surgeons (to draw a comparison in the language of football).
The nurses and carers also give their very best, and they stand out because of their competence, helpfulness and friendliness.
I can highly recommend the Martini Clinic.
My PSA value is now below the detection limit:< 0.01
Thanks for your fantastic work.

A good six months after my operation in December 2015 only a few fading scars remind me of the operation carried out by Prof. Dr. Heinzer using the da Vinci, robot-assisted, radical prostatectomy. This operation, from my perspective as a patient, is an exemplary success story in the treatment of prostate cancer.
Some of my personal impressions:
1. After the tumor was confirmed by my urologist, when she received the results of the biopsy, and with the diagnosis from the clinic (C61,pT2c,Gl. 3+4, pN0, R0, L0, V0), the carefully, clearly structured Martini Clinic website, containing easily understandable information, even for a lay person, was an important anchor for me when I was occupied by the highly emotion burden of the diagnosis “prostate cancer”.
The various therapy methods presented, the surgical techniques, the presentation of the operative procedures (video), results, etc. calmed me down greatly and made me feel optimistic.
2. The personal treatment I received from all those involved in my stay at the hospital (doctors, nurses and carers, etc.) is marked by their great attentiveness to the patients - from the minute one enters the hospital up until discharge one is consistently treated in a friendly and caring way.
3. The very successful, nerve-sparing da Vinci System method used by Prof. Dr. Heinzer, helped me:
- no surgical pain, no after-effects from the anesthetic
- after a few days I was already moving about, in and around the hospital grounds
- after 6 weeks I was completely continent (the exercises for the pelvic floor were very helpful!)
- after 2 months I could do sport regularly (e.g. bike racing training)
- after 6 monthsI had hardly any erectile dysfunction.
4. Up till now, the aftercare at my urologists has shown no concerning PSA values.
In conclusion: The Martini Clinic is an institution that can be recommended to prostate patients, without reservation.

Two weeks after my discharge from the Martini-Klinik, I would like to share the good experiences I had there.
The operation, performed by Dr. Salomon using the “da Vinci System”, was without complication, for which I express my sincere thanks!
I only had slight pain on the first two days, and was able to reduce and then completely stop the painkillers during the following days. It was also encouraging that on the first day after the operation I was able to get out of bed, with just a little help from the nurse. I was actually surprised at how quickly I recovered in the next days. I was able to go home on the 5th day, after the catheter had been removed and the doctors had given their OK.
Altogether, I was very satisfied with the treatment at the Martini-Klinik, the competent and friendly care given by the doctors and nurses, and I can recommend this Clinic without hesitation.
Thank you very much

Hallo dear Martini Team,
it is now three weeks since the 30.05.16, when I was - successfully - operated on. I would again like to say thank you to all the doctors and nurses (my special thanks at this point to Prof. Dr. Schlomm – you did a wonderful job!!!) for the competent treatment. In my case, to all on Wards 3 + 4. The consistently helpful and attentive manner will also stay in my memory.
Peter Kunstic wishes you all the best, and great strength and health to continue with your work.

I had my operation on the 18. April 2016, two months ago now, after having had my attention drawn to the Martini Clinic by a Swiss doctor at a clinic. According to my doctor, Prof. M. Graefen, the surgery was unproblematic, and this proved to be the case. Six days later the catheter was removed, and I have recovered rapidly since then. Each day, the scar serves as a reminder, but otherwise I am very well. I would like to thank all the doctors and nurses who operated on and cared for us patients, day in, day out. To all those who are “only” doing their job; but for the patient it is much more than just a job. Thank you!!

I was admitted to Ward 4 of your clinic on the 26.04.2016 and was operated on the next day by Prof. Dr. Chun.
From the first contact on the telephone, and during the time that followed, I felt very well taken care of. “Take time for the patients” is a concept that is put fully into practice at your clinic.
The professionalism, friendliness and care of the whole team, including Prof. Dr. Chun, was unique, lessening my worries and fears.
Today, 8 weeks after the operation and the aftercare in Durbach, I am very glad that I put myself in your hands.
My sincere thanks to the whole team on Ward 4, to Mrs Klooss and Mrs Lichtenberg from the consulting hour, as well as to Prof. Dr. Chun, for the kind and professional admittance, surgery and care.

On the 14. April, Prof. Dr. Heinzer performed a nerve-sparing operation on me using the Da Vinci method. The operation went very well. Immediately afterwards, Prof. Dr. Heinzer informed my wife about the course of the operation. I owe my sincere gratitude to the whole team on Ward 3. I not only felt that I was medically in good hands. The personal attention definitely led to my rapid recovery. I thank the doctors, nurses and service personnel. The radiation therapy, necessary to avoid a recurrence, has in the meantime commenced. I regained continence a few days after discharge. The advice from Mrs. Wittneben to go for follow-up treatment was right on target. At the “Klinik am Kurpark” in Bad Wildungen I was prepared tor the radiation therapy in an intensive and committed manner. I look forward to completion of the radiation therapy with great confidence. I can thoroughly, and definitely will, recommend the Martini Clinic without reservation, should the topic come up. Please continue the good work.

Dear PD Dr. Salomon,
I would very much like to thank you and your surgical team for the successful operation, as well as all those on Ward 4 who were responsible for my care afterwards. I felt that I was in really good hands at the Martini Clinic and absolutely recommend it.
Everything is run on a very high level and very professionally.
Once again, thank you to everyone!

Dear Martini Clinic team – that sums you up.
Special thanks to Professor Steuber and the whole of the surgical team.
I am glad that you exist.
Please take part in medical trials. It may well be that I have profited from my predecessors.

I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to you all for your professional support following my operation on the 19th April, 2016. I really appreciate your daily efforts to provide me with the maximum help following the operation, especially as I was surely a hyper-sensitive and difficult patient.
But it was not only the professional, perfect care – it was also the very personal attention, the conversations and your fundamental approach that pervaded, which delighted me. The team worked as one marvellous unit!
Your work cannot be appreciated highly enough, and it is one of the absurdities of the health system that people such as yourselves – and I believe my knowledge of these things allows me to make a judgement – are underpaid.
The operation itself, carried out by Prof. Graefen, who is, as one would say, “a master of his art”, was such that the catheter was removed within a week, and since then I have had no problems or complaints. It couldn’t have gone better. Once again, my sincere thanks with regard to this and to the whole team of doctors.
