Department of Dermatology and Venereology
In the Department of Dermatology and Venereology we offer a broad range of therapies for the various dermatological and venerological disorders. Our focus is on patients with skin tumors, chronic wounds, phlebological diseases and chronic inflammatory diseases, such as psoriasis, atopic dermatitis and other forms of eczema, as well as autoimmune diseases. Further, we offer comprehensive diagnostics and therapy of allergies. Up to date laser therapies are used e.g. for vascular ectasia or scars.
Our wound consultation service enjoys an excellent reputation far beyond the city of Hamburg. In our aesthetic consultations we e.g. improve with subcutaneous injections the appearance of scars and remove wrinkles with fillers and botulinum toxin. Surgical consultation sessions are offered for patients with skin tumors and leg ulcers. In our atopic dermatitis consultation we offer up to date treatments for atopic eczema. In our infertility consultation we provide advice for patients with unintended childlessness.
The key aspects of our research are barrier function of the skin, wound healing, tumor biology, molecular andrology, and the development of new test systems for skin, mucosa and eye. Within these topics, we are interested in inflammatory skin diseases, e.g. atopic dermatitis and psoriasis, acute and chronic wounds, various cutaneous and andrological tumors, e.g. malignant melanoma, Merkel cell carcinoma and testis tumors, as well as male infertility. The bottom line for us is the idea “from the bench to the bedside”. Thus, our aim is to translate the latest research findings from basic research into innovations that directly benefit our patients.
