About the department

The department of general, abdominal, minimally invasive, endocrine surgery and proctology at MEOCLINIC Berlin offers a wide range of various types of surgical intervention. The doctors provide outpatient and inpatient care (depending on the scope of the operation). The atmosphere and comfort of the private clinic are comparable to a five-star hotel. The highly experienced team of surgeons performs all surgical procedures in close interdisciplinary collaboration, complying with the highest standards of excellence and state-of-the-art technology. According to the latest developments, all surgical procedures are based on years of experience in minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery.

The areas of expertise include endocrine surgery, as well as minimally invasive abdominal surgery, and also the latest techniques in obesity surgery. Abdominal surgery covers all surgical treatments of the digestive tract, including the oesophagus, stomach, small and large intestine, rectum, liver, gall bladder and bile ducts, pancreas, adrenal glands, and spleen.
