Endocrine Surgery
Orthopedics and Traumatology
Department of Endocrine Surgery
The Department of Endocrine Surgery at Vivantes Humboldt Charité treats diseases of the thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal glands.
  • Surgeons treat all benign and malignant thyroid diseases, including:
  • Graves' disease;
  • autoimmune Hashimoto's thyroiditis;
  • goiter in elderly patients;
  • pathology in children;

Also the Humboldt Charité delas with diseases of the parathyroid glands with benign or malignant neoplasms, including:
  • primary hyperparathyroidism;
  • secondary hyperparathyroidism in dialysis patients;
  • diseases of the parathyroid glands in complex endocrine diseases (multiple endocrine neoplasia).

In most cases, endocrinological surgeries are performed through a small skin incision on the neck using the latest technology (“threadless operation” using a vessel and tissue sealing device). Each surgical intervention is performed at multiple magnification and using a device to protect the nerve and vocal cords. In the presence of small nodes or adenomas of the parathyroid gland, doctors perform the operation using minimally invasive video assistance (MIVA method). In interventions on the parathyroid glands, intraoperative determination of parathyroid hormone is used.

Close cooperation with histologists guarantees an intraoperative rapid section with immediate diagnosis or a rapid section with results available in 24 hours.

Head of the Department of Endocrine Surgery
Department of Orthopedics and Traumatology
The main task of orthopedists and traumatologists is to preserve the integrity and functions of joints and bones. Vivantes Humboldt Charité also specializes in the treatment of sports injuries in both amateur athletes and professional sports players. In addition, fractures of bones or injuries of soft tissues of the limbs, pelvis and spine are successfully treated here, both in case of accidents in private and at work.

Another area of orthopedics at Vivantes Humboldt Charité is hip and knee arthroplasty. They also perform joint-preserving surgeries such as arthroscopy or corrective surgeries for misalignment.

Head of the Department of Orthopedics and Traumatology
Department of Urology
Vivantes Humboldt Charité urologists perform surgical and medical treatment of urological cancer, urolithiasis, benign prostate enlargement and urinary incontinence.

Doctors use an innovative diagnostic method - perineal MRI-ultrasound combined biopsy. During an MRI scan of the prostate, the necessary areas are highlighted and a contrast agent is injected into them, which is later visible on ultrasound. This makes it possible to perform a prostate biopsy without surgery.

Also in the Humboldt Charité, operations are performed using minimally invasive technologies (Da Vinci systems). With the use of a surgical robot, the accuracy of open surgical procedures is achieved without the need to make a large incision in the abdominal cavity. Therefore, the use of the Da Vinci system is considered a particularly gentle alternative to open surgery. The "robot" does not perform surgical operations automatically, but only transfers the movements of the surgeon's hand and fingers to the instruments inside the body with particular accuracy.

In Vivantes Humboldt Charité, the Da Vinci system is used for:
  • removal of the prostate for prostate cancer (prostatectomy);
  • removal of kidney tumors with preservation of the affected kidney (partial resection of the kidney);
  • removal of the bladder for bladder cancer (cystectomy);
  • expansion of the mouth of the renal pelvis (plastic of the renal pelvis);
  • reconstruction of the bladder or lower ureter;
  • ureter replacement.

Head of the Department of Urology
Department of Coloproctology
Coloproctologists Vivantes Humboldt Charite specialize in diseases of the colon and rectum, proctological diseases (cancer of the colon, rectum and anal canal), as well as hemorrhoids, anal fistulas, anal abscesses.

The Humboldt Charité also treats bowel obstruction, fecal incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse and intestinal inflammation (diverticulitis and Crohn's disease). It covers the entire spectrum of coloproctological diagnostics and therapy, doctors achieve excellent results thanks to advanced technologies. Coloproctologists also work closely with experienced colleagues from the Department of Surgery and other related specialties at the Humboldt Charité.

The operating rooms at the Vivantes Humboldt Charite are equipped with laser technology and modern surgical systems (DaVinci robot). Surgeons work with a 3D video camera which allows them to perform minimally invasive operations. Before applying surgical treatment, drug therapy is prescribed, but if surgery is unavoidable, surgeons first of all use a minimally invasive procedure to make the operation as gentle as possible and without large incisions.

Here they treat all known neurological diseases, as well as conduct highly specialized rehabilitation.

Neukölln Charité has a multidisciplinary team that develops a treatment concept that is individually adapted to the disease of each patient.

The team consists of:
  • neurologists and neurosurgeons,
  • physiotherapists,
  • occupational therapists,
  • speech therapists,
  • neuropsychologists.
In the center of the Neukölln Charité, there are:
Neurosurgical operations
With craniocerebral injuries, cerebral hemorrhage, brain tumors, a neurosurgical operation is required. As part of the treatment, control examinations are carried out, and, if necessary, additional surgical interventions. Also, after operations, patients undergo a rehabilitation course with experienced doctors.
Post-stroke Rehabilitation
The neurocenter conducts neurological rehabilitation after a stroke. The interdisciplinary team works with an individual treatment concept consisting of care, physiotherapy and drug therapy.
Post-Hypoxic Brain Injury Rehabilitation
Hypoxic brain damage refers to disorders of brain function that are caused by a lack of oxygen. The causes may be a severe heart attack, sudden cardiac arrest, pain shock after accidents or resuscitation. Depending on the severity of the disorder, this leads to coma. Here, early neurological rehabilitation is used, using targeted stimuli to overcome the coma. Later, improvements in the perception of the surrounding world or the restoration of the motor functions of the doctor create a special course of various therapeutic approaches.
Physiotherapy Sessions
Active treatment of movement disorders caused by damage to the central and peripheral nervous system and muscles is the main task of physiotherapy exercises in the period of early neurological rehabilitation. These include paralysis, impaired coordination of movements and impaired sensitivity. It has developed a wide range of therapies for patients with movement disorders.
Occupational Therapy Sessions
The goal of occupational therapy is to restore the independence of the patient. Familiar sequences of movements and actions, such as washing and dressing or eating with aids, are practiced under supervision. Mental functions such as memory, attention and concentration are restored through targeted exercise. The neurocenter uses therapeutic concepts such as Bobath, Affolter, Coombs' FOTT or Frohlich's basal stimulation.
Speech Therapy Sessions
The tasks of a speech therapist include the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of language, speech, voice and swallowing, as well as paralysis in the facial area. Restoring the ability to communicate is a priority for neurocenter specialists.
Neuropsychology Sessions
The main task of neuropsychology is the diagnosis and treatment of changes in mental performance and mental well-being after traumatic brain injury. First, a detailed diagnosis of the type and degree of the disorder is carried out. Depending on the clinical picture, targeted therapy promotes the development of skills such as memory, concentration, spatial-visual skills, or intellectual abilities. Within the framework of the holistic concept of the neurocenter, relatives are also included in the therapeutic process.
Head of the Neurocenter
Department of Pediatric Surgery
The Vivantes Neukölln Charite Department of Pediatric Surgery, Neonatal Surgery and Pediatric Urology provides the full range of surgical care and specialized care for premature and sick newborns, infants, children and adolescents up to 16 years of age.

In the Neukölln Charité specialists perform:
  • surgery for malformations;
  • surgery for premature babies and neonatal surgery;
  • pediatric urology;
  • pediatric traumatology;
  • minimally invasive pediatric surgery.
Malformations Diagnosed Prenatally
The frequency of birth of children with malformations is low, but in the case of serious developmental anomalies, it is important to make the most accurate diagnosis during pregnancy. Here, a full range of diagnostic services is carried out to identify defects in the fetus. Therapeutic techniques are also applied and the child is treated immediately after birth.
Malformations of the Male Genital Organs (Hypospadias)
Hypospadias (congenital malformation of the urethra) is one of the most common congenital malformations of the genitourinary system. An individual plan of complex treatment is selected, which must be agreed with the parents.
Congenital Malformations of the Lungs and Airways
Malformations of the lungs are rare, but in some cases they can significantly disrupt the breathing of newborns. In malformations of the lungs and airways, normal lung tissue is replaced by abnormal tissue. Doctors successfully carry out the removal of non-functional tissue, as it can cause severe infections in the future. Defective lung tissue is surgically removed after an MRI or CT scan at about 6 months of age. For these operations, open and minimally invasive surgical methods are used.

The Vivantes Neukölln Charité Lung Cancer Center has been certified by the German Cancer Society (DKG), making the center one of the few lung cancer facilities in Germany that has three treatment departments. For patients, this provides an opportunity to receive holistic and high-quality care regarding all stages of their illness. An individual treatment program is created for each patient with lung cancer, taking into account the latest methods of therapy, the stage and type of cancer, age and concomitant diseases.

Diagnostics for lung cancer at the Neukölln Charité may include:
  • CT, including PET (positron emission tomography),
  • MRI,
  • scintigraphy (radiological diagnostics used to assess the functioning of various organs and tissues),
  • angiography (contrast study of blood vessels),
  • bronchoscopy (examination and assessment of the condition of the mucous membranes of the tracheobronchial tree),
  • endoscopic ultrasound (intraluminal ultrasound scanning of the walls of the organ under study),
  • the most advanced navigational puncture procedures for tissue acquisition.

Lung Cancer Treatment Options at the Neukölln Charité:
  • surgical interventions, including minimally invasive, endoscopic operations (tissue-preserving surgical methods, the use of a special laser system, the most modern methods of anesthesia and pain relief);
  • chemotherapy, including targeted cancer therapy;
  • antibodies and immunotherapy;
  • radiation therapy with maximum impact on tumor tissue while protecting healthy organs of the body;
  • social and psycho-oncological assistance;
  • rehabilitation and aftercare;
  • palliative medicine.

Center for Visceral Oncology
At the Vivantes Neukölln Charité Visceral Oncology Center, patients with colon, stomach, esophagus and pancreas cancer receive the highest level of medical care in Germany.
Colorectal Cancer
  • complete colonoscopy with tissue sampling from the tumor;
  • computed tomography of the chest and abdominal cavity, in some cases, an x-ray of the lungs and ultrasound of the liver are sufficient;
  • blood test for tumor markers;
  • in case of rectal cancer – rectoscopy (visual examination of the mucous membrane of the rectum), endosonography (sonography using an endoscopic probe) and magnetic resonance imaging of the pelvis.

Surgical Treatment:
The type of surgery depends on the location of the tumor in the colon. With each operation to remove a tumor in the intestine, surgeons remove all the lymph nodes and blood vessels of the tumor-bearing intestine, due to the risk of metastases. In case of tumors of the rectum, the entire affected part of the rectum and the surrounding fatty tissue are removed. It is worth noting that Vivantes Neukölln Charité regularly performs colorectal cancer surgery using the “keyhole” method. This method reduces the number of incisions, which contributes to a quick recovery after surgery.
Pancreas Cancer
Doctors believe that pancreatic cancer develops on the basis of benign tumors:
  • pancreatic intraepithelial neoplasia (PanIN),
  • intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasia (IPMN),
  • mucinous cystic neoplasia (MCN).

  • computed tomography of the chest,
  • computed tomography of the abdominal cavity using thin layer technology (3 mm) with special phases of a contrast agent to assess the relationship between the tumor and blood vessels,
  • blood test for tumor markers.

Surgical treatment:
The type of operation depends on the location of the tumor in the pancreas. Cancer cells are removed with surrounding tissues to prevent further metastasis. When the tumor is localized in the head of the pancreas, the right part of the pancreas affected by the tumor, the gallbladder, the lower bile duct, the duodenum, and sometimes part of the stomach (Whipple's operation) are removed. However, in many cases the entire stomach, including the pylorus, can be saved. When the tumor is located in the tail of the pancreas, only the part of the organ containing the tumor (the so-called left pancreatic resection) and the spleen are usually removed.

Operations break the connection between the stomach and the small intestine, the bile duct and the small intestine, the pancreas and the small intestine. Therefore, this connection must be restored in the second part of the operation. This is done by attaching a loop of the small intestine:
  • on the stomach (gastroenterostomy),
  • on the bile ducts (bilio-digestive anastomoses),
  • into the pancreas (pancreatoenteroanastomosis).
Stomach Cancer
One of the risk factors for developing stomach cancer is permanent infection with Helicobacter pylori, a bacterium that causes chronic inflammation of the gastric mucosa. Other risk factors include foods high in salt, nitrosamines, protein and vitamin deficiencies, smoking, and alcohol. The risk of cancer also increases due to previous stomach surgeries.

  • reflexion of the stomach with tissue sampling from the tumor,
  • ultrasound of the stomach from the inside (endosonography),
  • computed tomography of the chest and abdomen.

Surgical treatment:
During the intervention, part or all of the stomach is removed, depending on the location and stage of the tumor. Surgeons also need to remove the lymph nodes in the stomach drainage area, and in some cases, the spleen must also be removed.

After the stomach is removed, the esophagus is connected to the small intestine. The operation can be performed through an incision in the abdominal cavity or by a minimally invasive method.
Head of the Center for Visceral Oncology
Department of Pulmonology
Vivantes Neukölln Charité pulmonologists diagnose and treat diseases of the lungs, respiratory tract and affected organs of the chest.

The most common diseases of the lungs and respiratory tract:
  • infectious (pneumonia, tuberculosis);
  • obstructive (COPD and bronchial asthma);
  • malignant (lung cancer and other respiratory organs);
  • interstitial (pulmonary fibrosis or lung skeleton disease).

Diagnostics of pulmonological diseases:

  • flexible and rigid bronchoscopy (bronchial tree examinations),
  • endosonography (an ultrasound probe is inserted into the esophageal cavity using an endoscope to obtain a clear image of the organs),
  • thoracoscopy (examination of the pleural cavity).

Functional diagnostics:
  • body plethysmography (graphical recording of changes in the volume of an organ),
  • diffusion measurement (determination of the efficiency of oxygen transport from the alveoli to the bloodstream),
  • measuring the strength of the respiratory muscles,
  • spirometry (assessment of the functional state of the lungs),
  • blood gas analysis,
  • ultrasound.

Treatment of pulmonological diseases:

Pulmonologists apply innovative methods for the treatment of all diseases of the lungs and respiratory tract. Doctors also actively cooperate with specialists from related fields to create individual programs:
  • cardiologists,
  • intensive care physicians
  • oncohematologists,
  • nuclear medicine specialists
  • radiation therapy specialists
  • histologists.

Specialization of Vivantes Spandau

The Spandau Charité has more than 14 departments with highly specialized doctors and nurses, but the most famous department of the hospital is orthopedic movement surgery.
Department of Movement Surgery
The Vivantes Spandau Charité Department of Movement Surgery provides highly specialized orthopedic care to patients.
Department of Traumatology and Orthopedics at Vivantes Spandau
The Department of Traumatology and Orthopedics at the Vivantes Spandau Charité deals with diseases and pathologies of the musculoskeletal system. It provides both outpatient and inpatient care for injuries in children and adults, as well as treats tumors of bones and soft tissues of the musculoskeletal system.

Treatment ranges from conservative management of simple injuries (sprained muscles) to correction of complex, large-scale disorders (fractures of bones that have healed incorrectly) to the treatment of complex injuries of the spine or pelvis.

All treatment plans are tailor-made, taking into account age, comorbidities and/or the circumstances of the injury. Doctors most often use the most sparing surgical interventions.

Vivantes Spandau provides:
  • treatment of fractures of the pelvis, acetabulum and complex instabilities of the pelvic ring;
  • treatment of recent fractures and instability of the spine (dorsal / ventral / minimally invasive approach);
  • reconstructive joint surgery (conversion osteotomies, lengthening and shortening osteotomies);
  • arthroscopy of the knee joint for the treatment of acute and chronic pathologies of the ligaments, cartilage and meniscus injuries;
  • foot and ankle surgery (treatment of fractures, deformities of the anterior and posterior sections of the foot and ankle joint using corrective osteotomies and arthrodesis);
  • arthroscopy of the ankle joint;
  • septic surgery of joints and false joints, including reconstruction of bones and soft tissues;
  • treatment of bone and soft tissue tumors of the musculoskeletal system (primary tumors and metastasis surgery).
Department of Endoprosthetics at Vivantes Spandau
The Department of Endoprosthetics, Knee and Hip Surgery deals with surgical treatment of large joints of the lower extremities, as well as hip and knee arthroplasty. Surgeons successfully perform joint-sparing operations (arthroscopy or corrective surgery for bone misalignment).

In Spandau Charité, surgeons specialize in the treatment of:
  • coxarthrosis (osteoarthritis of the hip joint (coxarthrosis) — wear of the cartilage covering in the hip joint, which can occur even in young people in case of congenital displacements of the pelvic bones or after accidents such as fractures of the femur);
  • osteoarthritis of the knee joint (arthritis of the knee joint (gonarthrosis) is a painful disease associated with wear and tear of the cartilaginous coating in the knee joint, usually occurring in old age. It can occur in young people in case of an incorrect position or after accidents);
  • cartilage damage in the knee joint (large joints of a part of the bone are covered with cartilage tissue. Against the background of accidental dislocations and ligament ruptures, this cover can be injured. In such cases, cartilage transplantation is performed);
  • cruciate ligament rupture (there are two cruciate ligaments inside the joint that cross and stabilize the joint. When the ligaments are torn, surgical treatment is performed);
  • meniscus lesions (between the tibia and femur lie C-rings of connective tissue, or menisci. With each step, they cushion the weight of the body during impact movements. Injuries, such as a torn meniscus, often result from twisting of the joint after sudden movements, but can also occur gradually as the joint wears out.Surgeons either suture the meniscus or transplant the tissues of the meniscus).
Soulder Surgery at Vivantes Spandau
In the shoulder surgery department, doctors specialize in all types of injuries and diseases of the shoulder joint. Successfully applied here:
  • gentle arthroscopic reconstruction procedures (keyhole surgery) for tendon or cartilage injuries;
  • the latest techniques for restoring bones after fractures;
  • minimally invasive operations to eliminate congenital or acquired defects of the shoulder joint.

Surgical treatment:
  • arthroscopic and open operations of the rotator cuff;
  • arthroscopic and open stabilizing operations;
  • arthroscopic and open treatment of ruptures of the acromioclavicular joint;
