About the department

The department of general, thoracic and abdominal surgery at Academic Hospital Bundeswehr Berlin offers a wide range of specialized surgical procedures in general surgery and abdominal surgery. Modern surgical techniques and methods are used, for example, special neuromonitoring during operations on the thyroid gland to protect the vocal cord nerves. The department holds successful collaborations with external partners for chemotherapy and radiotherapy in tumour surgery. With their involvement, a tumour conference certified by the Berlin Medical Association takes place every two weeks for stage-appropriate diagnostics, therapy and aftercare for tumour patients. In the interdisciplinary intensive care unit, a team of specially trained medical, nursing and technical staff ensures optimal intensive medical care. Ten treatment stations with modern equipment are available for ventilation, renal replacement and invasive monitoring procedures under anesthesiological management.

Tumour surgery, surgery of the endocrine organs, hernia repair and minimally invasive interventions are particular areas of focus for the department. The department specializes in endocrine, bariatric, proctological, hernia and oncological surgery.
