Centre for Urology

Urology is a medical-surgical discipline that deals with diseases of the kidneys, ureter, bladder and urethra of all sexes.

Numerous diseases occur in this area, including bladder stones, kidney tumours, bladder tumours, prostate and testicular tumours, neurological bladder dysfunction and urinary tract infections.

In addition, urologists deal with dysfunctions of the male genital system, in particular infertility and erectile problems.

Our centre

Urologiezentrum Bethanien


The Urologiezentrum Bethanien, under the direction of Drs Guido Tenti and Jörg Häufel, offers all the advantages of personal, individual care at the highest professional level, combined with the efficiency of a hospital. The centre consists of an association of hospital-accredited urologists and deals with the entire spectrum of urology – from diagnosis to medical treatment and surgical intervention to aftercare.

Interdisciplinary collaboration

The interdisciplinary collaboration of doctors as an interdisciplinary team is a top priority at the Urologiezentrum Bethanien. Each and every one of our highly qualified specialists contributes their own experience. This allows us to offer our patients expertise from other specialist fields such as oncology, surgery, pathology, radiology and radiotherapy as part of our tumour board.

Our patients are the focus of everything we do. We look at each case individually and develop a personal treatment concept.

State-of-the-art technical treatment options also help to ensure that our patients get the best possible care.
