Georges Pompidou European Hospital (HEGP), Paris, France

On behalf of the whole team, it is an honor to welcome you to the Department of Urology HEGP-Necker, Paris 15th, France, resulting from the merge of Necker-Urology team with the most recent hospital of Assistance Publique Hôpitaux de Paris.
As we settled in Hôpital Européen Georges Pompidou (HEGP), we had to modify our website and we therefore created (the French translation for Department of Urology).

As most patients surf the web to collect huge amount of information about their disease, and face a worrying heterogeneity in the veracity of contents they may find, we aimed to diffuse correct information about common urological diseases.

In addition, as myself and some of the staff members have been partially trained in the UK or in the USA, we aimed to provide English speaking patients with the possibility to access high standard urological care here, at the European Hospital of Paris.

Please, feel free to visit every page of this site and to discover the Department of Urology, Georges Pompidou European Hospital of Paris - Necker Hospital.

Urology and Renal Surgery
Renal surgery is the corner stone of the department of Urology, HEGP-Necker, Paris, France.
It relates to kidney cancer surgery (either sporadic or hereditary syndroms), transplant surgery (from deceased of living donors), as well as surgical treatment of stone disease.
It is the result of a legacy, skills and collaborations.

The legacy comes from Professors J. Hamburger (nephrologist) and R. Couvelaire (former head of Urology at Necker hospital) who created the "Palais Du Rein," a visionary and practical realization of a hyper-day necessary structure devoted to the recognition of renal diseases and the empowerment of french teaching hospitals.

The skills are those of Nephrology, Transplantation, Interventional Radiology, Pathology, specialized Biochemistry and functional explorations with whom we work closely together.

Collaborations have become concrete in the form of weekly boards, video conferencing, data exchange, joint publications, research projects and everyday work with our colleagues from medical oncology and radiation medicine.
