General Surgery Department
The General Surgery Department’s operating rooms and therapy wing have the latest equipment, offering ideal conditions for patient treatment. The doctors and nursing staff, who undergo continuous vocational and in-service training, make every effort to offer patients a modern, transparent, and at the same time sensitive surgery service, aiming for maximised effectiveness and safe operating technique.
The range of services covers the broad range of classical “abdominal surgery” (esophagus, stomach, duodenum, small and large intestine, rectum, gall bladder, biliary tract, liver, pancreas, spleen operations) for all planned operations, benign and malignant conditions, as well as for acute disorders and abdominal injuries. The operations are, if possible, minimally invasive (“keyhole surgery”).
Currently, these operations are generally done on the gall bladder, the stomach, the large and small intestines, the appendix, the spleen and incisional hernias. Minimally invasive operations are also performed in the case of nonspecific abdominal pain, probable stomach injures and to assess tumor spreading.
Hernia operations are carried out either conventionally or by means of laparoscopy, depending upon age and/or profession, whilst incisional hernias are dealt with by means of specific inlay-onlay (sublay) technique or by laparoscopy (IPOM).
Standardized surgery is also offered for thyroid and parathyroid disorders. So called “small” and/or “septic” surgery includes operative intervention on the skin, as for example in the case of melanoma and skin appendages.
The range of vascular surgery on offer since 1997 includes surgical treatment of constricted carotid arteries, treatment of arterial circulatory disturbances of the aorta, the pelvis and leg vessels including aneurysms, as well as comprehensive treatment of the diabetic foot, reconstruction of the lower leg vessels, the insertion of arteriovenous fistula for dialysis (shunt surgery) and appropriate-stage varicose vein surgery.
For diagnostic purposes, routine ultrasound examinations, gastroscopies, coloscopies as well explorations of the chest area (mediastinoscopy) are done. In addition, the department has an angiological measurement station.
