In order to better meet the needs of their patients, two departments have joined forces: the Clinic for Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery and the Center for Wound Medicine, headed by Chief Physician Dr. Susanne Kopp, and the Clinic for Dermatology and Phlebology, headed by Chief Physician Prof. Dr. Wiebke Ludwig-Peitsch. In September, they jointly opened the Vivantes Aesthetics Center at the Vivantes Friedrichshain Hospital. "The Vivantes Aesthetics Center provides a team of specialists with many years of experience and special training who can ensure the highest level of treatment safety for every patient. The close networking of the individual specialist disciplines, which has been practiced for many years, has proven its worth," says head physician Susanne Kopp. For example, if aesthetic or reconstructive procedures are to be performed on the nose or ears, the Aesthetics Center cooperates with the Department of Otolaryngology under Head Physician PD Dr. Parvis Mir Salim. In addition, the Clinic for Gynecology and Obstetrics with Chief Physician Dr. Lars Hellmeyer, the Center for Vascular Medicine with Chief Physician PD Dr. Robert Klamroth and the Center for Musculoskeletal Medicine, Clinic for Orthopedics, Trauma, Hand and Reconstructive Surgery with Chief Physician PD Dr. Thomas Fuchs are among the Center's close partners. Chief Physician Prof. Dr. Wiebke Ludwig-Peitsch: "Aesthetic medicine offers a variety of modern therapy concepts - from anti-aging medicine and laser therapy to aesthetic and plastic reconstructive surgery. We are pleased to be able to offer a wide range of options together with our cooperation partners."
