Klinikum Mutterhaus der Borromäerinnen Ehrang
The Department of General and Visceral Surgery includes all abdominal operations including minimally invasive surgery. All operations are performed using the most recent findings with the help of the most modern technology. It is also very important to us that the medical and nursing care takes place in a family atmosphere. The entire organizational process in the Department of General and Visceral Surgery is designed to ensure a short and uncomplicated hospital stay.
The department’s focal areas are tumor operations of the gastrointestinal tract, i.e. the surgical treatment of malignant tumor diseases of the stomach, liver, as well as the colon and rectum. Interdisciplinary tumor treatment according to the latest scientific knowledge is offered in cooperation with the local oncologists.
In minimally invasive surgery all of the proven practices are available such as operations of the gallbladder, inguinal hernia, reflux disorders (fundoplication), and diverticulosis (laparoscopic sigmoid resection). Our extensive range of services also includes surgical lung procedures, thyroid surgery, as well as vascular surgery with modern treatment for varicose veins.
In the past few years we have developed a significant coloproctological center for our region. It provides the most modern diagnostic and therapeutic possibilities such as anorectal manometry, examination of the digestive tract using an endoscope, as well as ultrasound. In proctology we are specialized in hemorrhoids, anal fistulas, as well as tumor therapy and sphincter reconstruction for severe fecal incontinence. In order to achieve the best possible care for these patients, interdisciplinary cooperation with gastroenterologists and gynecologists from our hospital is implemented.
