Surgical procedures and operations

Surgical procedures in the abdominal region are a focal point of my specialist work. I use minimally invasive (laparoscopic) surgical procedures whenever possible, which involve less recovery time after the procedure and offer cosmetic and aesthetic advantages.

Whether it be for a gallbladder or appendix removal, repair of inguinal hernias and operations on the oesophagus, stomach or intestines, I regularly opt for minimally invasive procedures. Thanks to the exceptionally high image quality of the internal video footage providing a good overview of the procedure from inside the body, operations and preparative procedures are usually much gentler and cause far less bleeding than traditional surgery. The time that it takes for patients to make a full recovery is also generally much shorter. You can find out more about the procedures that I most frequently perform on the following subpages.

Reflux disease in cases of diaphragmatic hernia, generally referred to as heartburn, is more common today than ever before.

The gallbladder plays an important part in helping the body to digest food.

I treat all benign and malignant disorders in the intestines from classic inflammation to tumours.

Abdominal wall and incisional hernias generally occur after an operation. They are usually caused by tears in body tissue.
