Prof. Dr. Volker Fendrich
Our endocrine centre specializes in the surgical treatment of diseases of the hormone-producing glands. These are in particular the thyroid gland, the parathyroid glands and the adrenal glands. As the second largest endocrine centre in Germany, our experts carry out more than 1,800 surgeries on these organs each year. This specialization, combined with state-of-the-art surgical procedures and a close exchange with endocrinologists and nuclear physicians from all over Germany, gives you the security of being treated here to the best medical quality standards.
At the endocrine centre of Schoen Clinic Hamburg Eilbek, we perform the second-largest thyroid surgery nationwide and are among the top three specialists in the treatment of thyroid cancer. What else makes us stand out? We are Europe's largest centre for the treatment of parathyroid glands and are among the largest adrenal glands in northern Germany.
Why do we mention this? Because you benefit directly from this high level of specialization in endocrine diseases and the resulting vast experience of our specialists. This can be seen, for example, in our low complication rates. The paralysis of the vocal cord nerves, for example, which run in the immediate vicinity of the thyroid, is one such serious complication. In our endocrine surgery, this complication is very rare due to the vast experience of our surgeons.
The special position of the thyroid makes high demands on a gentle surgical technique that protects the surrounding tissue and guarantees good cosmetic results. Our experienced experts operate on the latest and the most proven treatment standards. So you can recover faster and return to your everyday life sooner.
