Diagnosis: Heart failure

Many thanks to the doctors of this clinic on behalf of our family. They literally dragged my daddy out of the dead. He had serious heart problems. Thanks to the doctors of the clinic, the disease was diagnosed on time and the operation was performed. Now my daddy feels hearty and is up there with the young. I am very glad that he is alive and healthy.

Diagnosis: Osteochondrosis

The clinic is worthy. The high level of professionalism of the doctors speaks for itself. I had big problems with the spine (the vertebral disc bones were literally crumbled). Only in this clinic, they helped to make a correct diagnosis and start timely and correct treatment. The clinic really helped me. The treatment was expensive, but the cost was justified.

Diagnosis: Examination

She addressed the center about abdominal pains that did not respond to treatment in our country. Specialists carried out a thorough examination on modern equipment, and in the course of this revealed problems with gynecology. I liked the responsiveness and competence of the doctor, because after his appointments in a week I was able to feel practically healthy.

Diagnosis: Varicose vein disease

I accompanied my mom for treatment. She has advanced varicose vein disease. Unfortunately, in Russia they could not receive the necessary treatment. After the operation, mom even visited two excursions in Freiburg. We are very satisfied, mom is quickly recovering!

What methods of treatment of oncological diseases are offered at Freiburg University Hospital?

cancer treatment at the University Hospital FreiburgThe Cancer Center of Uniklinik Freiburg is certified by the German Cancer Organization (DKFZ) as a top specialist center for the treatment of all types of cancer. The oncologists of Freiburg Hospital are highly qualified and provide patients with personalized treatment and support at all stages. The choice of therapy depends on the type, stage of the disease, the condition of the patient, and the possible risks and benefits of treatment.

In addition to chemotherapy, a wide range of modern therapeutic technologies is available to foreign patients at Freiburg Hospital:

  1. Stereotactic radiation therapy (radiosurgery). Powerful beams are used for precise impact from different angles on small foci in the brain, lungs, and spine. It is carried out using the LINAC linear accelerator, which allows to accurately select the radiation load so as not to affect neighboring healthy tissues.
  2. Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT). The point effect of a large dose of radiation on the tumor. It is used for tumors in the head and neck, chest, and pelvic organs.
  3. Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT). Before each irradiation session, computed tomography is performed. This enables oncologists to adjust the direction and dose of the rays, taking into account possible shifts or changes in the tumor. It is recommended for the treatment of cancer of the head and neck, lungs, liver, pancreas, and prostate.
  4. Intraoperative radiotherapy (IORT). Tumor irradiation during surgery using special applicators. It reduces the risk of spread of metastases or recurrence. It is used for tumors in the head and neck, skin, chest, intestines, pancreas, prostate, and cervix.
  5. Brachytherapy. This is contact radiation, in which the doctor injects a radioactive source inside near the tumor. It is indicated for cancer of the eye, breast, esophagus, pancreas, prostate, and cervix.
  6. Interstitial hyperthermia. Heating tissue around the tumor with microwave radiation up to 45°C. It is used to destroy tumors in the head and neck, mammary glands, soft tissues, and bones.
  7. Bone marrow transplantation (BMT). Transplantation of healthy stem cells to restore hematopoietic function. Stem cells are taken from the patient (autologous BMT) or from a donor (allogeneic BMT). It is an effective method for the treatment of leukemia, lymphomas, and myeloma. TCM can help the patient get rid of the disease and prevent recurrence.
  8. Immunotherapy. Drugs that activate the patient’s immune system to fight cancer cells are used. It is indicated in the presence of tumors that are resistant to other treatments or prone to metastasis. Immunotherapy is safer for the body than chemotherapy or radiation therapy, it does not damage healthy cells or organs. The different types of immunotherapy are used in University Hospital Freiburg:
  • peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) are own or donor healthy immune cells after special treatment (performed after BMT or as an independent method for the treatment of leukemia, lymphomas);
  • antibodies are special proteins that can recognize, block, and destroy cancer cells (effective in breast cancer, lymphoma, melanoma);
  • cytokines are substances that regulate the activity of the immune system (used for kidney cancer, melanoma, leukemia).
  1. CAR-T-cell therapy. This is an innovative way to fight cancer. Doctors extract immune T-cells from a patient’s blood, modify them in the lab, and reinject them. Updated T-cells are aimed at recognizing and destroying cancerous foci. This method has the advantage of using the patient’s own cells, which reduces the risk of rejection and infection. The technology is recommended for the treatment of patients who do not respond to chemotherapy or TCM. According to clinical trials at Uniklinik Freiburg, CAR-T cell therapy can achieve complete remission in up to 90% of patients with leukemia and lymphoma.

According to a survey conducted at Freiburg Hospital, 97.1% of the interviewed patients recommend this oncology center.

What modern methods in neurosurgery are offered at Freiburg University Hospital?

Neurosurgery at the University Hospital FreiburgUniklinik Freiburg is one of the leaders in the field of neurosurgery in Germany and throughout Europe. Scientific research is conducted and new methods of treating brain tumors are developed here.

Foreign patients have the opportunity to participate in trials and be the first to receive effective treatment. Surgeons use computer navigation to avoid damage to the vital functions of the brain and shorten the rehabilitation period.

The main areas of work of the neuro-center at Freiburg University Hospital are:

  1. Deep brain stimulation (DBS). This is an effective method for the treatment of movement disorders in epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, dystonia, and tremor. In certain areas of the brain, the doctor implants electrodes, which are then connected to a pulse generator. These impulses regulate the functioning of the brain and improve the condition of patients. According to Uniklinik Freiburg, DBS has improved the quality of life in more than 70% of patients.
  2. Interstitial radiosurgery. It allows the treatment of inoperable brain tumors. The surgeon injects radioactive grains (iodine-125) into the affected part of the brain, which irradiates and destroys cancer cells from the inside.
  3. Vascular neurosurgery. Microsurgical endovascular interventions are carried out to eliminate vascular pathologies of the brain: aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, and fistulas. This helps prevent cerebral hemorrhage and its complications.
  4. Surgical treatment of hydrocephalus. Shunting is carried out – the installation of special tubes to remove excess fluid from the brain.
  5. Craniofacial operations. Methods of reconstructive and plastic surgery, including transplantation of bones, muscles, nerves, and skin are used.

According to statistics from Uniklinik Freiburg, the 5-year survival rate in patients with brain tumors exceeds 80%.

What are the advantages of the Department of Cardiac Surgery at Freiburg University Hospital?

cardiac surgery at the University Hospital FreiburgThe Cardiac Surgery Center in Uniklinik Freiburg is one of the leading centers in Germany. All diseases of the heart and blood vessels are treated here for patients of any age, including newborns.

Most interventions are performed in a minimally invasive (through small incisions on the chest) and endovascular (catheter) method. These operations do not require opening the chest and stopping the heart. The occurrence of postoperative complications is minimized and patients recover quickly. Surgeons use special instruments, manipulations are performed under the control of x-rays or ultrasound.

Uniklinik Freiburg conducts the following procedures:

  1. Coronary revascularization. This is a coronary artery bypass, in which the surgeon creates bypasses to improve the blood supply to the heart.
  2. Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) and mitral valve (TMVI). It is performed through a puncture in the femoral artery.
  3. Elimination of defects in the interatrial and interventricular septa using the AMPLATZER system. To close the holes in the walls of the heart, surgeons insert a special plug device through the catheter.
  4. Transcatheter coronary intervention (TCI) for the treatment of coronary heart disease.

Cardiac surgeons at Uniklinik Freiburg have extensive experience in open-heart surgery using a heart-lung machine. Foreign patients come for:

  • installation of ventricular circulatory assist device. It is used for temporary or permanent replacement of heart function;
  • treatment of congenital heart defects in children: transposition of the great vessels, tetralogy of Fallot, double discharge of the great vessels.

According to Uniklinik Freiburg, success rates are above the German average:

  • interventions on the coronary arteries – 98.7%;
  • heart valve surgery – 97.6%.
What technologies in orthopedics are available at Freiburg University Hospital?

Orthopedics at the University Hospital FreiburgAmong foreign patients, the following referrals to Uniklinik Freiburg are most in demand:

  1. Arthroscopy. This is a minimally invasive intervention for diagnostics and intra-articular operations through small skin punctures. This reduces the risk of infection, bleeding, pain, and shortens the recovery phase.
  2. Endoprosthetics. The replacement of the shoulder, elbow, hip, knee, and ankle joints is carried out using the navigation system. Modern Aesculap Bicontact cementless fixation prostheses and Metha short shaft prostheses are used in Uniklinik Freiburg. They restore joint function and improve the quality of life of patients.
  3. Spine surgery. Treatment of scoliosis, intervertebral discs, spondylolisthesis, spondylitis, and tumors is performed using sparing techniques. These include microsurgical, stabilizing, reconstructive, and decompression procedures.
  4. Tissue engineering. Orthopedic surgeons at Freiburg Hospital restore the functions of damaged cartilage, bone tissue, and ligamentous apparatus using biological substitutes.
  5. Treatment of osteoporosis. Doctors determine the degree of osteoporosis, and the risk of fractures, and also monitor the effectiveness of treatment using densitometry. It measures bone density using X-rays.
  6. Sports orthopedics and traumatology. Uniklinik Freiburg provides comprehensive assistance to athletes at all stages of treatment and rehabilitation.

Rehabilitation of patients takes place in specialized centers, with thermal springs and gyrotonic devices.

In 2020, the Orthopedics Center of Freiburg Hospital was included in the list of the best clinics for trauma surgery, orthopedics, and spinal surgery by Focus magazine.
