Expansion of the robot-assisted surgery section by associate professor Dr. med. Jörn H. Witt


Privatdozent Dr. med. Jörn H. Witt, an internationally recognized pioneer of robot-assisted da Vinci surgeries, has joined Goldstadt Privatklinik at the beginning of 2023.

Robot-assisted surgeries have become an integral part of the surgical treatment spectrum in the field of urology. While initially only prostate cancer surgery was performed robotically, nowadays, the surgical robot is used for many other conditions (organ-preserving kidney tumor surgery, ureteroplasty, ureteral reimplantation).
Scientific studies demonstrate that robotic surgery leads to a particularly gentle treatment of the patient.

Roboter-assisted surgeries have been performed with the latest generation da Vinci Robot at Goldstadt Privatklinik since spring 2019.
Increasing patient numbers due to growing demand have prompted Goldstadt Privatklinik to expand this section.

“I am delighted to announce that Privatdozent Dr. med. Jörn H. Witt will be joining the team of Goldstadt Privatklinik at the turn of 2022/2023,” stated Medical Director Prof. Dr. med. Sven Lahme.
“Goldstadt Privatklinik gains with Dr. Witt arguably the most internationally renowned surgeon in the field of robot-assisted surgeries. Dr. Witt has had a special connection to the city of Pforzheim for a long time, as he, along with me, established robot-assisted da Vinci surgeries at St. Trudpert Hospital in 2008, one of the first clinics nationwide to do so.”
