Holistic treatment of endometriosis

You are in the best hands with us as a certified clinical endometriosis centre (Level II)

Endometriosis is a common benign but often painful and chronic disease for women. With this disease, the endometrium is found outside the uterine cavity. It is the second most common gynaecological disease of women and occurs in about 7-12 % of all women.

Often endometriosis remains undetected for long time because the symptoms are usually non-specific and cannot always be clearly assigned to the disease. On average, it takes six years in Germany before a final diagnosis is made for a woman. Learn also about the relationship between fertility and endometriosis.

Do you have a corresponding diagnosis or symptoms? We are here for you!

The certification is granted by the europäische Endometriose Liga [European Endometriosis League], Stiftung Endometriose-Forschung [Foundation of Endometriosis Research] and by the Endometriose-Vereinigung-Deutschland e.V [Endometriosis Association-Germany]. The award proves that we have extensive medical expertise and meet strict criteria, guidelines and procedures related to the diagnosis and treatment of endometriosis.

Holistic Treatment
If you have already been diagnosed with endometriosis or the symptoms described above apply to you, you are welcome to make an appointment with us. We offer a holistic treatment approach in our Endometriosis Centre. After a detailed medical history and examination, we can do a laparoscopy and confirm the diagnosis if there is a reasonable suspicion of endometriosis.

Pain relief and help with fertility problems
If the unfulfilled desire for children is a top priority, we offer all the standard methods of assisted reproduction (artificial fertilisation/IVF). Our associates in urology and radiology as well as a pain therapist, a psychologist, an occupational therapist, a nutritionist and a physician for acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine are all part of our team. We all want to improve your quality of life by reducing pain and helping with fertility problems.
