Today, many procedures can be performed using the so-called minimally invasive, gentle "keyhole technique" (laparoscopic or endoscopic, i.e. with the aid of a video camera) with the smallest of incisions.
So-called surgical robots make it possible to perform demanding laparoscopic procedures even more carefully and precisely.
Surgical treatment of reflux
Reflux disease with the classic symptom of heartburn is often accompanied by a hiatal hernia. This can be surgically repaired by a gentle operation.
Therapy of gastric carcinoma
Patients diagnosed with a malignant tumor of the stomach are cared for by various specialist disciplines. This enables an individually tailored therapy plan, one component of which may be surgery.
Treatment of diseases of the small intestine
Inflammation, tumors or narrowing can lead to massive discomfort that must be treated with abdominal incision or minimally invasive surgery.
Removal of the spleen
Some diseases lead to pathological enlargement of the spleen with symptoms. In individual cases, removal of the spleen is necessary. The so-called splenectomy is minimally invasive.
Surgical treatment of colon diseases
Minimally invasive and, in exceptional cases, open removal of the colon with an abdominal incision may be necessary in the event of intestinal obstruction. In individual cases, an artificial anus is temporarily useful.
Removal of the appendix
Acute appendicitis is often treated by emergency surgery. This so-called minimally invasive appendectomy is a gentle method that requires only a short treatment time in the hospital.
Surgical removal of the thyroid gland
The operation is performed with attention to the vocal cord nerve located nearby (by so-called neuromonitoring).
Inguinal, umbilical and incisional hernias require surgery as soon as discomfort and restrictions occur due to the abdominal wall weakness. All modern methods of surgical therapy are available.
