About PCE

Prostate Centre Europe is a collaboration between the Dutch Coordination Centre of Top Medical Care and the German PZNW (Prostatazentrum Nordwest, Gronau - Germany). PCE’s mission is to offer the best prostate treatments to patients throughout Europe.

In 2011, the Prostate Centre Europe commissioned its third surgical robot. With this new Da Vinci robot, Gronau has become the largest urological centre in Europe and performs the most Da Vinci operations worldwide.

The clinic

The examination takes place in the clinic of the prostate centre, Prostatazentrum Nord West PZNW in the Gronau Hospital close to Enschede. The prostate centre has all the possible means and methods at its disposal for the required treatment of prostate problems and all urological disorders can be treated here. 

The centre is particularly specialised in the treatment of prostate cancer. The latest treatments such as the Da Vinci technology have been used here for a considerable time. As the first hospital, just across the border in Germany (and one of the few hospitals in the whole country), Gronau Hospital together with the Prostatazentrum Nord West now offers the revolutionary Da Vinci technology. Patients from all over Germany and neighbouring European countries come to Gronau for this advanced surgery.
