Prostate Cancer Screening 

As an established cancer specialist, Prof. Höltl sees prostate screening as a special concern. Starting at age 45 (or 40 if there have been pre-existing conditions in the family), the prostate should be examined each year by a urologist. Why is a preventive checkup so important? In Austria alone, there are around 5,000 new cases each year. But: Prostate cancer is a curable tumor when it is detected in time! 

Urological Cancer Operations

Cancers are psychologically and physically distressing for patients and their families. Dr. Höltl is aware of these concerns and takes plenty of time out for his patients. His reputation as a specialist in urological tumors - even in advanced disease stages - attracts even patients from abroad, who travel to Vienna specifically to have Prof. Höltl operate on them.     

The clear objective is to preserve the health and with it the quality of life of cancer patients. Whether a prostate, kidney, testicular, bladder, urethral or adrenal tumor, his wealth of experience and the most modern infrastructure at the Rudolfinerhaus guarantees patients the best treatment and post-treatment available.
