This is how the clinic list was created

  • Many patients! At the clinics presented above, the doctors have great experience with prostate cancer (ICD C61) because only hospitals that treat prostate cancer 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 Safety! All of the clinics attach above-average value to patient safety. At least 45 out of 55 measures have been taken in order to guarantee optimal hygiene before, during and after surgery.
  • Excellent Equipment! All clinics have the equipment that is necessary for the treatment at their disposal which guarantees a successful therapy. At least 14 out of 17 criteria are fulfilled in the equipment of the hospital.
  • Certifications! When a clinic receives a certificate, this means that there are doctors who specialized in the treatment of prostate cancer and that the necessary equipment for treatment is available. All of the clinics in the list have been certified as Prostate Cancer Centers by the German Cancer Society.

This is just a small selection of German clinics. Of course, many other hospitals also offer a high quality of treatment.
