General Surgery

The wide range of surgical operations of the Department of Surgery encompasses the general surgery including visceral and vascular surgery.

A special emphasis is laid on minimally invasive procedures that cause less tissue damage  and result in a quicker healing process. Treament plans and surgical procedures are chosen individually to achieve optimal outcomes.

All surgical operations are based on international standards, which is guaranteed due to continuous training.
