For his residency training he changed to the Urological Department of the Medical Faculty Mannheim at the Heidelberg University, which he completed in 1993. He stayed in this department for his scientific work to be graduated as Professor in 1995. Kai Uwe Köehrmann expanded his clinical expertise as consultant and afterwards as senior to become assistant medical director in 2001. He changed to Theresienkrankenhaus in Mannheim in 2003 as head of the urological department.
Prof. Köehrmann’s clinical focus is the early detection, diagnosis, and management of genitourinary malignancy, and using minimally invasive techniques to treat benign and malignant diseases. He performs laparoscopic, endoscopic, and percutaneous surgeries, and is interested in incorporating promising new technologies into his practice. His other interests include the treatment of benign prostate hyperplasia, voiding dysfunction and kidney stone disease.
His research interests include prostate cancer detection by multi-parametric MRI together with image-fused biopsies, as well as being one of a handful of surgeons who lead the advanced treatment of prostatic cancer with High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU). Furthermore he is involved in improving minimal invasive treatment of urinary stones by endoscopy including flexible ureterorenoscopy using laser lithotripsy.
Prof. Köehrmann is committed to offering his patients rapid access one-stop urology diagnostic service, helping them make better-informed decisions about both treatments and management of short- and long-term treatment sequels.
