Univ.-Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Höltl


Organization Flag
Language Spoken: German, English


Dr. Wolfgang Höltl has been specializing in urology for over 30 years. Both at his practice in Vienna’s 19th district and at Vienna’s Rudolfinerhaus private clinic, his knowledge and many years of experience lets patients receive the most modern urological diagnosis and therapy. His core competence lies in surgical oncology (prostate, bladder, kidney, testicular and penile cancer). As a urological specialist in cancer diseases, he has already performed over 2,000 radical prostatectomies among other things. For Prof. Höltl’s, his concern is for his patients to receive extensive details about their urological disorder because for many of them visiting a neurologist is uncomfortable and associated with anxiety. He knows these concerns, takes plenty of time out for his patients, responds to their needs and has developed a bond with them as he lays out treatment or a therapy plan. He looks forward to welcoming you to his practice and being able to provide you with medical advice!
