Dr. Petra Kossmann, Medical doctor is my passion
During my studies I was inspired by the medical side of the skin as the largest organ of the human. The skin represents what we have inside and I have learned to understand why commonly known, the skin is the mirror of the soul.
Even after 25 years working with the skin, I am daily surprised by new and challenging experiences and I share my knowledge with my patients. Regular training sessions and exchange with colleagues helps me to be on the cutting edge of dermatology. A well-trained and friendly team of medical specialists supports me.

During the early 1990s, my colleague Ms Lee led me into the field of acupuncture. Since then, I studied under Prof. Gunia Osnabru?ck, Prof. Chen Xinnong in Beijing and Prof. Bahr in Munich and practiced at St. Hedwig Hospital in Berlin and other places.
Later, we took part in large-scale studies, which successfully evaluated acupuncture therapy in Germany. Apart from small possible bruises, acupuncture offers an excellent therapy for muscle-pain and joint disorders. They have already freed many patients from annoying allergy symptoms.
We can even help the future non-smokers. In the simplest case, the acupuncture is relaxing. For back pain and knee problems, the health insurance covers any costs. Private health insurance bears als costs of acupuncture treatment of most diseases.

Skin cancer prevention

If detected early, skin cancer is curable!
You should therefore carry out the recommended annual skin cancer screening!
During the last 20 years, the number of malignant skin tumors has about quintupled. In Germany 100 000 people fall ill each year from skin cancer. About one of ten skin cancer patients fall ill with malignant melanoma, at a young age. The reason is the increased sun exposure during leisure time and on vacation as well as the weakening of the ozone layer. If left untreated, malignant melanoma is early (metastases) and quickly develops into a deadly disease. More than 20 percent of patients die, even though skin cancer is curable with early detection.
All forms of skin cancer are curable with early surgery! Each change of Your skin should be checked! Right away! Through periodic and thorough skin examinations, skin cancer can almost always be detected in even curable early stages.
Congenital pigmented moles (nevi) have some risk to degenerate into a malignant melanoma. For people with many moles, regular checkup is especially important. Skin cancer prevention, including the scalp and the visible mucous membranes is examined for cancer flashy suspicious changes.
