Surgery & Visceral Surgery
General surgery concentrates on the surgical treatment of diseases of the digestive tract including the oesophagus, stomach, small and large intestine, rectum, liver and pancreas. Furthermore, diseases of the abdominal wall (inguinal, umbilical and incisional hernia), the thyroid and parathyroid glands, the spleen, hand and vascular surgical diseases are treated by the general surgeon.
Due to the wide range of services that are covered, the prerequisites for optimal therapy are respectful conduct, competent counselling and the close cooperation with surgeons and specialists of other disciplines who specialise in specific areas.
