TOP SPECIALTIES OFFERED BY HEIDELBERG UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL · Mediastinal Tumors · Premature Infant and Neonatal Surgery · Uterine Endometriosis · Bone Marrow Transplantation • MEDIASTINAL TUMORS Mediastinal Tumors are defined as abnormal growths that may be found in the region inside the chest that separates the two lungs. This is called the mediastinum and is surrounded by the spine posteriorly, the breast bone anteriorly, and the two lings on each side. This is a particularly important structure as it contains certain vital organs of the body, including the heart, aorta, trachea, esophagus, thymus, and lymph nodes. Hence the early treatment of a mediastinal tumor is essential as an extension of the tumor can target multiple organ systems in the body and severely debilitate the patient. The Heidelberg University Hospital specializes in the treatment of Mediastinal Tumors, which is apparent by a large number of highly successful treatment outcomes for this complex tumor. Their experts work to carefully plan out the treatment and approach for the Mediastinal Tumor after evaluating the type of tumors and their exact location in the body. This is facilitated by the high-quality and advanced diagnostic tools that allow accurate diagnosis and a successful outcome of the procedure. • PREMATURE INFANT AND NEONATAL SURGERY Some premature infants and critically ill neonates may require surgery soon after their birth in order to correct any birth defect or abnormalities that may be interfering with their health and livelihood. Since they are still undergoing growth and development and at a highly sensitive stage, these surgeries can only be performed by a trained and experienced pediatric surgeon who is well aware of the anatomy and physiology of babies. The Heidelberg University Hospital put patient safety above all, and careful evaluation and diagnostic measures are preceded by a surgery on premature infants and neonates. Their pediatric experts also work in close association with other specialists, including perinatologists, neonatologists, and pediatric anesthesiologists, to allow evaluation of the patient's health from every angle and planning of a surgical approach that may prove to be the safest for them. The history of successful pediatric treatment at Heidelberg University Hospital can also be seen by the "Ausgezeichnet. Für Kinder" seal of quality that was awarded to the pediatric surgery department due to their continued excellence in delivering patient care. • UTERINE ENDOMETRIOSIS Uterine Endometriosis, which may also be referred to as endometriosis, is a very painful condition. The common sites affected by endometriosis involve the ovaries, fallopian tubes, and the lining of the pelvis, which in turn reduce the chances of successful fertility. The treatment of Uterine Endometriosis is one of the most popular specializations at Heidelberg University Hospital, with the main objective of reducing patient discomfort and highly improving the chances of fertility. The treatment can involve a surgical approach or a pharmacological approach. However, this may be decided after careful evaluation of the patient's health and the clinical manifestation of the condition. • BONE MARROW TRANSPLANTATION Bone Marrow Transplantation, as the name suggests, is the transfer of a healthy bone marrow, which can either be from a donor or from the patient's own body. This procedure may also be referred to as a stem cell transplant or a hematopoietic stem cell transplant, which is usually used for the treatment of certain cancers like leukemia, myeloma, and lymphoma, among others. Heidelberg University Hospital facilitates its patient's bone marrow transplantation with 18 state-of-the-art patient rooms, which is located in the bone marrow and stem cell transplantation ward. Each of these rooms is supplied with a HEPA air filtration system to allow complete safety of the patients who are immunocompromised and eliminate any risk of infection. Due to the quality of services and the history of successful treatment outcomes, patients now travel from all over the world to avail the facilities offered at Heidelberg University Hospital. The research facilities at Heidelberg University Hospital also allow the techniques used by the practicing physician to be constantly updated according to the international standard and provide more accurate and successful treatment outcomes for the patients.
