Clinic for General, Visceral, Vascular and Thoracic Surgery

Ärzte bei einer OP

The Clinic for Surgery, with its various specialisations, carries out all surgical procedures within the entire range of surgery.

Due to HDTV video laparoscopy, an inpatient DAS facility for endovascular procedures and preparation instruments, technology levels at the Clinic for Surgery correspond to the latest generation of state-of-the-art equipment. Furthermore, a laser for lung and liver surgery, as well as a heart-lung machine are available for isolated limb perfusion (HIPEC).

The individual divisions are managed by highly qualified doctors and their teams. The highly specialised departments are also available outside of regular working hours, since, in addition to the standby service, a corresponding qualified on-call service for visceral surgery, vascular surgery and thoracic surgery is also available. The Clinic has its own intermediate care area (IMC), a surgical intensive care ward and a surgical endoscopy unit, that work closely together with the Clinic for Anaesthesia as well as the Gastroenterological Clinic. A total of 82 in-patient beds are available for patients on four different wards.

The Clinic for Surgery was successfully certified as a competence centre for surgical coloproctology, a competence centre for surgical diseases of the pancreas as well as a competence centre for surgical diseases of the liver by the Germany Society for General and Visceral Surgery (DAGV). Moreover, the Clinic is run as an associated GISG Sarcoma Centre. The certifications are audited and renewed on a regular basis. The Clinic is continuously involved in the Tumour Conference which is organised by the Tumour Centre Frankfurt Höchst. A private ward on the 12th and 13th floors, with a panoramic view of Frankfurt, is available to accommodate privately insured patients.
