Women’s health, breast health
Goldenes Kreuz Private Hospital is Austria’s premium center for women’s health. From gynecological disease to preventive medicine – our experts in women's health issues are available for a wide range of concerns and for all stages of life. As a patient, you can be confident of the highest quality standards, modern technology and the sensitivity of skilled physicians and care teams.
We offer the full range of treatments in general and surgical gynecology – specializing in minimally invasive procedures (“keyhole surgery”). The range of treatments includes all types of procedures – from straightforward curettage in the event of miscarriage, to blood disorders or pathological changes in the endometrium, to cone biopsy following abnormal cancer screening (PAP smear) results, or major vaginal surgery in cases of incontinence or prolapsed bladder, vagina or rectum, and rare malignant diseases of the genital organs.
In recent years minimally invasive surgery – meaning the smallest possible surgical intrusion, using incisions of just 1-2 cm length in the abdominal wall – can be used in almost every case. Around 90% of all procedures that used to be performed in “open” surgery are today carried out using this method (abdominal imaging or laparoscopy). In keeping with this trend, laparoscopic and hysteroscopic surgery is a specialism in this hospital.
These procedures are technically complex and require considerable experience and expertise, but as numerous studies have shown, there are obvious advantages for the patient. Apart from a more cosmetically pleasing outcome, the need for pain medication is reduced, the hospital stay and postoperative recuperation (and sick leave) are significantly shorter.
