Quality of the Urology Department again confirmed by certificate
The Urology Department at KLINIK am RING has again successfully passed the quality certification according to the new DIN EN ISO 9001 standard this year. "The certification within the framework of an external audit once again confirms the high quality of our work," the directors Dr. Stephan Neubauer and Dr. Pedram Derakhshani are pleased to say. Since 1999, a well-coordinated team of physicians has been offering the entire range of diagnostics and therapy for all urological clinical pictures. The focus is on the treatment of prostate cancer and benign prostate enlargement with modern surgical and laser procedures as well as innovative techniques of modern radiation therapy.
Quality feature: prostate cancer database
"Particularly in highly specialized treatment methods, the transparency of procedures and optimization of work processes is an important criterion for the safety and success of the therapy," explains Dr. Derakhshani. For example, the West German Prostate Center (WPZ), which is affiliated with the Urology Department, has a prostate cancer database in which relevant parameters on quality of life, micturition situation, and sexual function after therapy are recorded anonymously at regular intervals using validated patient questionnaires. In addition to numerous other interventions, over 7,500 brachytherapy treatments for localized prostate cancer and over 3,500 prostate resections have been performed at the WPZ. The center now has 19 years of follow-up data.
The informed patient
However, patients also benefit from the precise documentation of individual work processes: they can follow every single treatment step; additional information and explanatory material about the diagnosis and its treatment options also supplements the discussion with the doctor. Quality audits by an independent company take place annually in the Urology Department of the KLINIK am RING. This has the advantage that work processes are constantly scrutinized and improved if necessary. "Because we can only offer patient-oriented medicine at the highest level of quality if workflows and organizational processes are constantly optimized," sums up the urologist."
