Which clinics in Germany work with a Da-Vinci-Robot in surgery? Here are 30 hospitals with a modern surgical robot.
DA VINCI surgical robots are used more and more frequently in hospitals, for example for prostate or bladder cancer surgery or kidney removal. Using robotics has a lot of advantages for the patients, such as rapid recovery and a shorter hospital stay. In addition, the robot works with the minimally invasive surgical method, thus the patient only has a very small wound after surgery. A disadvantage is the high price of the operation which must be paid by patients from abroad themselves.
Not all German clinics work with the Da-Vinci-Robot. The following list presents hospitals that have a surgical robot.

This is how the clinic list was created:
- Many patients! At the clinics presented above, doctors have great experience with the Da-Vinci robot (OPS 5-987), because only hospitals that use this surgical robot on an above-average basis have been taken into consideration. Hospitals are obliged to inform about their medical treatment in quality reports and to provide this information to the Federal Joint Committee.
- High Level of Patient Satisfaction! The level of patient satisfaction of the clinics in the list is at least 80 per cent. This is the result of a survey by the German health insurance companies AOK, the BARMER Ersatzkasse and the Kaufmännische Krankenkasse (KKH) in cooperation with the “Weisse Liste”. Every year, almost half a million of insured people are being questioned about their hospital stay.
- Good Hygiene! All the clinics attach above-average value to patient safety. At least 45 out of 55 measures are taken in order to guarantee optimal hygiene before, during and after surgery.
The presentation above only shows a small selection of hospitals with a Da Vinci Robot. In general, doctors in about one hundred clinics in Germany work with the new technology. Ask your hospital of choice whether surgery with Da Vinci is possible. Often, there is also information about this subject on the hospital’s website.
