Treatment of hemorrhoids, infections (viral, bacterial, fungal), fistulas, anal carcinomas and HPV infections

The fact that more than half the population suffers from rectal problems is widely taboo. Out of shame, those affected frequently try to ignore the symptoms or relieve them with self-therapy. Proctology deals with the symptoms and diseases of the rectum and anal region. For example, we treat hemorrhoids; anal eczema, fistulas and carcinomas; viral, bacterial, fungal and HPV infections; and sexually transmitted diseases.

Don’t hesitate to speak to us about your problems promptly and frankly. We provide early diagnosis, targeted therapy and consult you on colonoscopy examinations.

With our competent and specialised treatment, you will no longer need to silently suffer through your symptoms. It’s time to start life anew – without this discomforting condition.

Photodynamic Therapy (PDT)


Treatment of preliminary stages of skin cancer

Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) is an innovative method, which enables the early detection and treatment of skin cancer before the formation of metastases. Photodynamic therapy is an highly effective method of scar-free treatment of pre-cancers (so-called actinic keratoses), tumours and superficial basal cell carcinomas (also known as basaliomas). It is generally a two-step process: A medication is applied to the changed skin area in the form of cream, gel or patch, whose active ingredients penetrate the cancerously affected skin cells within a few hours. Subsequently, the substance is activated in the practice using a special light source, consequently killing the malignant cells and promoting the formation of healthy cells in their place.

The specialists at Dermatologie des Westens have more than one decade experience in the application of photodynamic therapy. The Dermatologie des Westens Training Centre for PDT, founded in 2013, provides training in this procedure for medical specialists.

Photodynamic treatment is not compensated by statutory health insurance policies. Private health insurance providers generally reimburse the treatment costs.
