Association

On 30 June 2005, the Urology and Technique Association was founded to support the Urology and the Prostate Center Northwest and to procure innovative techniques, diagnostics and therapy.

A valuable cooperation partner

The PZNW and the Association are independent, but they have signed a cooperation agreement.

  • 2005: Until the date of foundation, the Association had to purchase the first da Vinci-System. At the end of the first donation evening in 2005 – and a bit later– the necessary amount had gathered to the start-up.
  • 2008: With the help of the donations which were gathered by the Association, HD video documentation can be made in 3 rooms. It is a very important element of the education and the scientific information exchange.
  • 2010: The Association allows the acquisition of a repro camera, so after the surgery the removed tissue or the removed prostate can be photographed in very good quality- one more investment in research and education, which improves the quality of the treatment.
  • 2011: From further donations the PZNW can buy accessories for the video documentation
  • We hope that in this year we can buy a surgical simulator to help the training of the surgeons. Thus we can shorten the training of the future surgeons; furthermore their training can be continued outside the operations – as it is common in the pilot training.

We still have huge aims, and we would appreciate any assistance.

Ambassador

As a victim of prostate cancer, you are an expert of your disease. Would you have been happy if you had had the possibility to ask information or help from other people, who are suffering from the same disease? During the first conversation a lot of men answer that they would have been thankful, if they had had the possibility to talk with someone about their problem. Wear this ribbon to show the other people that you are an expert of this topic, and that you are ready to share your experiences. Knowledge helps overcome the taboos, and perhaps it can save lives. In the U.S; people are expected to wear bracelets and badges to profess their diseases. Thus everyone can speak about their malady. We support these ideas, and we offer our patients a blue ribbon, which indicates, that ‘I have experience with prostate cancer’. Men don’t -or rather late- talk about their complaints, and only 10% take advantage of the check-up.  Perhaps the wearing of the blue ribbon will change the health consciousness and the communication about cancer.

We would kindly send you a ribbon. Please contact us.
