The clinic competently covers, in accordance with advanced state of the art medical techniques, the entire spectrum of general, visceral and minimal invasive surgery. The clinic, besides concentrating on tumour surgery, minimal invasive surgery and coloproctology, is specially focused on endocrine surgery.

In the field of tumour surgery, the entire range of benign and malignant tumours of visceral surgery is covered, with particular focus on the large intestine and rectum, the stomach and the pancreas.
The minimal invasive surgical treatment of hernias, reflux disease, gall bladder and appendix, of the liver, spleen and adrenal gland, the alimentary canal as well as all malignant diseases of the stomach and intestinal tract, including rectal prolapse and haemorrhoids belong to the operative scope of the clinic.
Through preferential application of minimal invasive operation techniques, an individual pain therapy and early post-operative mobilisation and return to a normal diet, the patient’s stay in the clinic is made as pleasant and short as possible.
