Professor Maass took charge of the Department of Gynaecology and Obstetrics in 2009. He previously worked as the Associate Director of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology of the University Hospital in Kiel. His expert knowledge is further based on his research activities at the Harvard Medical School in Boston and the National Cancer Centre in Tokyo.

He and his team – including female senior physicians – are committed to providing the highest quality of care to women. An individual plan of treatment is developed with each patient.

If operative procedures are required, he considers microinvasive surgery whenever possible. This is especially applicable to hysterectomies and treatment of myomas, endometriosis as well as early stages of oncological diseases. Discussion of each individual case by interdisciplinary tumour boards (e.g. Euregional comprehensive Cancer Centre) guarantees the highest standards of treatment.
