About the department

The department of general and abdominal surgery at Academic Regio Hospital Pinneberg offers modern, state-of-the-art medicine coupled with human attention and dedication. The core area of activity is minimally invasive operations (keyhole surgery) and the surgical therapy of benign and malignant diseases of the gastrointestinal tract and other abdominal organs. The department is certificated by the German Cancer Society, which proves many interventions are carried out at the highest level. Furthermore, at regular oncological conferences, all patients with cancer are introduced to various experts from different disciplines and individual and tailor-made therapy.

The department provides patients with optimal medical and humane care in the field of surgery. All possible interventions are offered with the minimally invasive method. In particular, the therapy of heartburn diseases, gallbladder removal, and the treatment of hernias are routine operations for the medical team. In addition, doctors specialise in Nissen fundoplication and implantation of the LINX Reflux Management System. Such surgeries help achieve the best results in severe forms of gastroesophageal reflux disease.
