Reviews about Aachen University Hospital (8)

Breast Implant Removal
Some time ago I had breast augmentation with implants, but after a while I realized that it was not for me. Yes, the implant was quite small, but I could not get rid of the feeling of "unnatural" breasts. Therefore, she turned to the Aachen clinic for the removal of implants. The doctors also recommended that I undergo lipofilling in order to slightly correct the shape, while achieving a natural effect. The result came out just great!

Lips micrographic surgery
Got micrographic surgery for my lip cancer from a German Hospital and am glad for my decision to choose the hospital today. I am now free of the sore and my lip was also adjusted by the plastic surgeons. I will surely recommend them to everyone, Ursula.
My younger sister got her cerebral palsy treatment from Dr. Jorg B. Schulz while we were residing in Germany. He is an excellent doctor and his treatment plan really worked for my sister. She had mobility and balance issues which were sorted to a great extent. He is an incomparable doctor and has a great attitude towards his patients.
Aachen university hospital is always my top priority when it comes to healthcare because I always had the best services at the hospital. Last year, I went to the clinic with a friend of mine who was diagnosed with stomach cancer and was experiencing severe symptoms. I took him to the clinic and the doctor performed all the diagnostic tests to detect the issue and the metastasis. Luckily it was stage 2 so the doctor suggested gastrectomy. My friend was not ready for surgery but I encouraged him. It went well and now he is completely fine and has no symptoms.
Melanoma Surgery
I had my Melanoma surgery in Germany which proved to be a good treatment. The doctors and hospital staff handled me professionally and took good care of me.
A 53-year-old patient gave five stars to Aachen clinic. The administration staff is amicable. I had my radiotherapy sessions for leukemia. The doctor provided me thorough guidance about the situation. I did not pay any hidden charges.
