Breast Center

On the basis of UKB, there is a mammological center which employs highly qualified specialists in the field of gynecology, breast diseases, as well as teams of psycho-oncologists, nurses, radiologists, pathologists, oncologists, radiation therapists, physiotherapists and other specialists.

Medicamentation therapy
At the Breast Center of UKB, oncologists prescribe chemotherapy, endocrine therapy (tamoxifen, aromatase inhibitors, GnRH analogues), targeted therapy (trastuzumab, pertuzumab, CDK 4/6 inhibitors, T-DM1) and therapies to prevent or treat bone metastases (bisphosphonates). Depending on the stage and type of cancer, as well as other factors, doctors may prescribe either one type of therapy or create various combinations for maximum effectiveness.

Surgical treatment (oncoplasty)
The aim of surgical treatment at UKB is the complete removal of a malignant tumor. In the center of the breast, breast cancer is diagnosed at an early stage thanks to the latest equipment and the professionalism of doctors. Also in Germany, drug therapy is carried out before surgery, due to which it is often possible to carry out an organ-preserving operation.

If there is no way to save the mammary gland, then surgeons perform breast reconstruction using an implant, autologous tissue (the latissimus dorsi flap or TRAM flap), or a combination of both. If a so-called free flap (with a vascular connection) is needed, an oncologist consults with plastic surgeons at UKB.

In addition to the fight against oncology, in the breast center of the University Hospital Bonn, doctors perform plastic aesthetic surgery of the mammary glands:
Breast reduction and lift (reduction plastic, mastopexy, lift) Various surgical techniques while maintaining the ability to breastfeed
Correction of breast deformity
Tubular or lumpy breasts (nasal breasts), asymmetry, lack of pectoral muscle (Poland syndrome)
Breast augmentation (augmentation). Implant placement on (prepectoral) or under (subpectoral) pectoralis major muscle through an incision in the breast crease or through an incision around the areola
Gender related breast surgeries
Scar correction by cutting scars with/or autologous fat injections
Lipofilling — for a slight increase in the breast, which has not previously undergone surgery
Correction and reconstruction of the nipples — erection of the nipple with the so-called inverted nipple (retracted nipple). Nipple reconstruction with local tissue plasty
Abdominoplasty is performed from small folds on the abdomen to extensive plastic surgery of the abdominal wall

Service at University Hospital Bonn

Service in Germany is always at a high level, the Germans, like no one else, are worried about the comfort and quality of their services. At UKB, everything is equipped for a comfortable and cozy stay in the wards and on the hospital grounds. It is worth noting that in recent years, patrons and local authorities have invested more than €200,000,000 in the improvement and equipment of the hospital. This made the clinic an advanced center of European medicine. The latest diagnostic and treatment equipment and high-tech operating rooms have made the Bonn University Hospital famous throughout Europe among doctors. And wards with increased comfort and developed infrastructure of the hospital are among the patients.

Location of the University Hospital Bonn

For the people of Bonn, the Venusberg area is synonymous with the "university hospital", which has been headquartered here since 1950. The area of the clinic is almost as large as the inner city of Bonn. At the same time, the building complex of the hospital is constantly growing, uniting the past and the future of Germany. The old wall and observation decks of the hospital still resemble the original purpose of a military facility in the past. Many of the historic buildings have been replaced with new, functional homes.

In 1950, the university clinics were moved from the city center in what is now Beethovenhalle to Venusberg. The fresh mountain air and vast forest area have also been appreciated by many of the politicians who have settled on Venusberg since 1949, including Presidents Heinrich Lübcke and Walter Scheel, as well as Herbert Wehner and Willy Brandt.

Surgical and medical clinics were created from two adjacent former command units connected by a large auditorium. At the same time, the outer houses of the Medical Clinic, the "Tuberculosis House" (today the Auenbrüger House) and the "Infection House" (today the Paul Ehrlich House) were relocated. It was followed by an ENT, a gynecological clinic, and in the 50s the first hospital, new buildings, an eye clinic and a skin clinic.

In the late 1950s, the main entrance to the hospital grounds, the arch in the tower building (now the administration), was replaced by the main gate on the west. In the 60s, the territory was expanded to the south and west, first a psychiatric hospital was built there, and in the 70s a neurosurgical clinic.
