Obstetrics & Gynecology

The Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology at the Medical Center - University of Freiburg has a long tradition of excellence in patient care, training and research. We strive to provide outstanding comprehensive, patient-centered care for all our patients and are rated among the top of Obstetrics & Gynecology departments in the country.

We provide diagnostics and treatment for infertility, different types of artificial fertilization, particularly ‘in-vitro’ fertilization and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), as well as obstetrics, pre- and perinatal medicine.

Our department performs all types of vaginal and abdominal surgeries. We are a reference center for gynecological cancer. Minimally invasive surgery is performed whenever possible. Laparoscopy and hysteroscopy are offered on a high technical level and are often part of cancer surgery. We also specialize in diagnostics and treatment of infections, urinary incontinence, and endometriosis.

In obstetrics and perinatal medicine the unit is specialized in high-end prenatal diagnosis and in high-risk pregnancy care.

Prof. Gitsch is ranked among the leading German specialists, according „Focus“ magazine. He is a past-president of the European Society of Gynaecological Oncology (ESGO). In 2004, the department was the first in Germany to be certified by the ESGO, and in 2012 it was named one of the leading in the field of diagnostics and treatment of breast cancer in the country.
