Prof. Dr. Christian Gratzke has been the new medical director of the Department of Urology since 1 October 2018. He is thus the successor to Prof. Dr. Ulrich Wetterauer. Prof. Gratzke studied in Munich and Vienna, and served most recently as senior consultant in the Department and Polyclinic of Urology at the University Hospital Munich.

His specialties include the minimally invasive diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer. "By combining MRI images with live ultrasound in an image fusion biopsy, we can detect and target altered tissue very precisely. This makes an exact diagnosis possible, allowing us to say whether and when we need to operate," says the urologist.
