This year, for the first time, my PSA value was found to be 4.5 (I am 63 years-old). The biopsy result showed two tumors with a Gleason score of 5+4 and 3+4. After a very informative consultation with Prof. Dr. Haese, I decided on a radical prostatectomy.
The open surgery was carried out on the 23.10. by PD Dr. Salomon, sparing the nerves on both sides; the catheter was already removed 5 days later, and the day after that I was discharged. After a few days, my continence had already improved so much that pads were only necessary as a safety measure.
I chose the Martini Clinic after researching on the internet and talking to fellow sufferers among my acquaintances. In all its aspects this clinic is a top address: ranging from the highly professional doctors, to the excellent medical staff, and the service personnel, who were friendly at all times. For this reason, I can only recommend this clinic to all those who at some time might be affected.
Once again, many thanks to Dr. Salomon for the very good surgical results and to the whole team at the clinic for the perfect all-round care!

I would subsequently like to express my thanks by making an entrance in your guest book.
The first report I wrote on the internet apparently got lost. My stay at the clinic, from the 22.05.14 until the 28.05.2015, turned out to be positive in every way.
At this point, I would therefore like to thank all on Ward 4, and in particular Dr. Tilki, who performed a very successful operation. As I underwent a short follow-up treatment at my urologist’s, without any form of therapy, my health is now very good. My incontinence has been, to almost 100%, rectified. During the day I wear a very thin pad, just for safety, as I sometimes lose urine during certain movements (when using exercise machines, or when bending down to tie my shoelaces). Otherwise, I am completely continent. Regarding sexuality with my partner, I must say that with a little support, only when necessary a SILDENAFIL tablet (100mg), everything is as it was prior to the operation. Only ejaculation is lacking. This is surely connected to my radical prostatectomy. My latest PSA value, measured in Sept. 2015, is 0.03 ng, thus hardly measurable.
In any case, I can happily say that I have conquered my cancer, and would advise every man with prostate cancer go to the Martini Clinic for surgery.
I am very happy to advertise the Clinic and the whole team there.

After the biopsy, which took place in September 2015, and its result, cancer of the prostate, I decided to undergo open surgery; this I definitely wanted to be carried out at the Martini Clinic.
After the operation on the 12.11.2015, I was already discharged, without any complaints, by the 17.11.15. My special thanks go to Professor Dr. Tilki and her team for their excellent work, and also to the whole team on Ward 4 for their good care.
At the moment I am undergoing follow-up treatment, which I can only recommend to anyone who has had surgery. My continence improves daily!
Many greetings from Hessen.

It took a good four months before I finally made the decision to go to the Martini Clinic.
The Berlin Charité did not offer the possibility of a “seed implantation”, the surgery I finally underwent. The Berlin urologists only said that the prostate had to be removed as quickly as possible, alternative methods were, unfortunately, not mentioned. I could therefore only get help on the internet, searching for alternative methods and the clinics offering them. Exchanging information with “fellow sufferers” was very important!
I am 64 years-old, I didn’t experience the urge to urinate at night and had no other complaints. My PSA values were 4.7 to 9.1 within about 2.5 years. The tumor was finally confirmed by biopsy and MRI. A Gleason of 3+3 and a prostate of 53 ccm were crucial factors prompting the decision to operate.
There were no problems during the operation: Tuesday admission, Wednesday OP, Thursday discharge. The operation, during which 85 radioactive seeds were implanted, lasted three hours; I had no complaints afterwards, no pain, and I was amazed. Still, after five weeks, urinating takes a little longer, as the prostate is still swollen.
Altogether, I am completely satisfied. The team at the clinic, the doctor responsible and the nursing personnel, are all super, one feels at ease at the clinic, particularly as the rooms don’t resemble rooms at a hospital (I am a private patient).
I can only recommend: inform yourself and definitely get a second opinion, and men: do not wait too long to go to your local urologist for an examination.

After being diagnosed with prostate cancer (68 years old, T1c – 2 tumors, Gl. 3+3, PSA 8,9; HIFU and IRE were not possible!) and after thorough research on the internet, for me there was only one clinic in which I would be prepared to undergo a radical prostatectomy: the Martini Clinic.
The operation took place on the 14.08.2015, and thanks to the excellent work of Dr. Michl and his colleagues (open operation, transverse incision), everything went well. The Martini Clinic team is unrivalled. My thanks to everyone there! My continence has also improved since the postoperative follow-up treatment in September. To my great joy, the PSA values on the 15.10.2015 were low at 0.01, so that a suspected tumor in the 9th rib, seen in the scintigram, was not confirmed!!!
Once again, many thanks and keep up the good work

In short, my case history: 58 years old, PSA twice >5.5, Gleason 6 of 12 biopsies positive, once 3+3, five times 3+4. After receiving much divergent information within the space of just three months, alternating between radiation therapy and prostatectomy, and not having received, as an informed patient, any hard and fast recommendation – until my attention was called to the Martini Clinic. During the first consultation with PD Dr. Budäus, my case history and data were evaluated and the recommendation was clear: in view of my age, and bearing in mind the option of a possible radiation therapy, which might be necessary, the doctor decided on a prostatectomy. I had the choice between open surgery and a da Vinci operation, and I decided on the latter. I felt that I was taken seriously as an “informed patient” and that the advice was competent. Date of operation: 8.10.2015.
The operation took place 8 days ago, the catheter will be removed on Monday and I already feel quite well. Better than expected. This was due to PD Dr. Budäus, the assistant doctor, and to each individual member of the excellent nursing staff on Ward 4. I have never previously experienced hospital nursing personnel who take so much time for each patient, and who always react to individual problems and worries and find solutions in a friendly and patient manner. The discussions with the psychologist were also good. As far as it is possible in such circumstances, I must say that I felt comfortable.
I expressly recommend the Martini Clinic.

After the results of the biopsy, I was operated on by Dr. Salomon on the 07.09.2015. The care provided by the complete Martini Clinic team was unparalleled and definitely helped towards the healing process. Everything, the preliminary consultations and the preoperative information, as well as the answers to my questions, helped to take away the fear that I and my wife had prior to the operation, which went very well. I would once again like to thank the whole team for the wonderful care, and I am happy that my orthopedic doctor referred me to the Martini Clinic.

Dear Professor Huland, dear Professor Heinzer, dear Martini Clinic Team,
today I received your letter to former patients, detailing the advances made in treatment methods and thanking us for taking part in the surgical follow-up program with regard to treatment results.
I can only return my thanks. You performed the operation in June 2012; after 7 days and a short period of recuperation I was free from any symptoms. I had got rid of the cancer and today I am still healthy. No cancer, fully continent and potent. The results of your work were already noticeable in 2012, and I am, of course, delighted about my continued progress. This gives me sufficient reason to say this publicly, to encourage all men facing such a decision. I would definitely make the same decision as in 2012; to this day, I have not regretted it.
My best regards

This attribute may be attested to the Martini Clinic, when one had no option but to deliver oneself into the competent hands of the whole Clinic team.
In July 2015, I received the diagnosis "prostate cancer" and was, at first – like all men in this situation – shocked, not very well informed on the subject, and distraught about the unclear extent and consequences of this diagnosis. Then I did a lot of things right. With the diagnosis from my urologist and the recommendation for a “punch” biopsy, I immediately contacted the Martini Clinic and received competent, and for ”non-medics” understandable, explanations of the necessary programs, radical retropubic prostatectomy, the results pT3b, pN0, pL0, pV0 and Gleason 3+4, all the steps of consultation, preparation for the operation, the operation itself – at this point my special thanks go to Professor Dr. Tilki for the very time-consuming and strenuous operation, the wonderful aftercare that was accompanied by sympathetic explanations, and for being available almost all the time – as well as outpatient care. The whole of the Martini Clinic works round the clock as a team and provides appreciable and apparent individual patient-oriented care, down to the last detail! This gives the feeling of being treated individually and places the focus on the human being. Therefore, I would like to say a very special “thank you” to all faculties of the team, and for their help in undergoing this not so pleasant experience in a bearable way. Following the operation on the 12.08.2015 and the outpatient aftercare, I am now at home, unfortunately not as continent as I would have wished. The recommended radiation therapy three months after surgery is still to come, and the there is the uneasy question of what lies before; it remains for me to learn to deal with this positively. Mr. Bosbach is a perfect example. Hence, ... sincere thanks again to all at the clinic and those outside who have looked after me, and have also done so in the past; and great thanks to my wife and family who at all times understandingly stood by me during this phase of my life.
12. October 2015 / Manfred T. from Eckernförde
My stay at the clinic from 06.09. until the 14.09.15 was positive, in every way. Everything was very well organized, from start to finish. At this point, my sincere thanks go to all on Ward 4, and in particular to Professor Steuber, whose operation on me was very successful. Making a donation and lending other support is a matter of course for me. I send the whole team my best wishes and would like to encourage others to choose the Martini Clinic.
