Our clinic treats patients in all areas of general and visceral surgery. His surgery clinic focuses on treating malignant diseases of the digestive tract, including the pancreas, liver and bile ducts, as well as proctology of benign diseases.

Furthermore, the clinic specializes in minimally invasive surgery ("keyhole surgery"), wherein laparoscopic therapy of benign and malignant colon diseases and in particular rectal cancer are particularly important.
