Minimally Invasive Surgery
The advantages of minimally invasive surgical techniques are less pain after surgery, quicker recovery, cosmetically favourable scars and a shorter hospital stay. The following are examples of minimally invasive surgical procedures:

  • Haemorrhoids 
  • Surgery for the treatment of heartburn (reflux disease) 
  • Gall bladder surgery 
  • Spleen surgery 
  • Gastric surgery 
  • Defecation disturbances
  • Benign and malignant tumours of the large intestine and the rectum (rectal prolapse)
  • Chronic abdominal pains and adhesion related disorders 
  • Surgery for inguinal and incisional hernias
  • Surgery on the appendix

Endocrine Surgery
Endocrine interventions are surgical procedures performed on hormone-producing glands, the thyroid and parathyroid glands, adrenal glands and the pancreas. Particularly hyperfunctions or benign lump formations in the thyroid gland are remedied by means of surgical interventions. By the same token, the parathyroid glands have to be removed in cases of hyperfunction. Endocrine tumours in other organs, such as the pancreas, are less common. In our clinic even endocrine surgical procedures are conducted according to the principles of minimally invasive surgery.

Oncological Surgery (tumour surgery)
Surgery plays a central role in the treatment of malignant tumours. Individuals with early stage tumours can be can be cured; advanced tumours have to be treated by means of combined treatment approaches consisting of radio and chemotherapy. Therefore the surgeons in our clinic consider themselves to be part of an interdisciplinary team of experts (tumour board), which is responsible for planning and agreeing on the course of an overall treatment process.

Spinal Surgery Section
The neurosurgical section provides the entire range of treatments in spinal surgery. It focuses on patients with problems related to the cervical and lumbar spine. The aim is always to restore lost mobility to patients.
