Men's health, prostate
Today, men are increasingly health-conscious, for example by paying attention to nutrition or doing sports. Yet, statistically they maintain a less healthy lifestyle than women. Men‘s alcohol consumption is higher, they smoke more often and eat less healthy. As a result, men are more likely to suffer from lifestyle-related illnesses (such as cardiovascular disease and certain types of cancer) or the consequences of accidents and injuries.
Confraternität Private Hospital therefore places a medical focus on men's health. It offers a wide range of examinations and treatments especially for the target group of men - from special examinations in the sense of prevention, specific topics of urology or andrology (e.g. hormones, sexual dysfunction, incontinence, desire for children) to oncology (e.g. prostate cancer).
At Confraternität Private Hospital patients can find “everything under one roof”: preliminary investigations, possible surgical or conservative methods of treatment and comprehensive aftercare. Patients are treated by experienced and internationally renowned top physicians, with interdisciplinary collaboration where appropriate, in order to effect rapid healing or alleviation of their problems. There is a strong emphasis on open discussion and understanding for each patient’s individual situation – because the issues that bring people to these specialists are often very sensitive.
