Prof. Dr. med. univ. Shahrokh Shariat

Some of the most promising results, both in terms of drug and surgical management, are now being achieved in the treatment of urological tumours. About 30% of all tumor diseases fall into the urological field. As Full Professor at the Medical University of Vienna and Primarius of the University Clinic for Urology at the AKH Vienna, he is considered the highest authority in his field. Prof. Shariat is an expert in the field of oncological urology and also deals with complex questions regarding all urological cancers:

– Urothelial carcinomas (bladder cancer, renal pelvic carcinoma,
– ureteral carcinoma, urethral carcinoma)
– Prostate carcinomas
– Penis and testicular cancer
– Renal carcinomas

In addition, he is an expert in state-of-the-art surgical methods for benign prostate enlargement and kidney stones.

As the head of the clinic, Prof. Shariat has a unique combination of interdisciplinary diagnostic and therapeutic possibilities with the use of the most modern medical and technical procedures, some of which are only available in studies. His treatment spectrum ranges from individual diagnostics, holistic assessment and treatment to surgical procedures and state-of-the-art therapies. As a member of expert committees, he has his finger on the pulse of the times and is himself an important contributor to the latest specialist literature.

Shariats goal is to find the optimal strategy for his patients. He is committed to maintaining the quality of life – even in the most difficult cases – for example through organ-preserving surgical techniques. He also wants to offer an optimized oncological therapy that focuses on the wishes and needs of the patients. He is happy to take enough time in his private practice for a second or third opinion. The more you trust your doctor, the more effective the therapy will be. Shariat helps you to actively tackle your treatment with self-confidence. Discussions and information can be helpful here.
