Spectrum of services

General surgery

Removal of inguinal hernia, abdominal hernia or incisional hernia, removal of skin tumors and soft parts and implantation of port systems for chemotherapy.

Minimally invasive surgery

All operations are performed in modern minimally invasive techniques, if there are no contraindications.

Visceral surgery

Operations on the entire upper and lower gastrointestinal tract: for example, on the esophagus, on the stomach, on the liver, on the gallbladder, bile ducts, pancreas, and on the small and large intestine and rectum.

Special expertise exists in the field of oncologic surgery (cancer surgery). In this case, both new cancer and, in particular, recurrent cancer, as well as daughter tumors in the abdominal cavity or thoracic cage, are treated with multimodal therapy.

Surgery of the esophagus

Esophageal cancer, diverticulum or reflux disease.

Surgery of the stomach

Treatment of benign and malignant stomach tumors, surgery of the stomach ulcer (removal of part of the stomach or total removal with reconstruction of the small intestine).

Surgery of the liver, gallbladder and bile ducts (also with the help of radiofrequency ablation)

Treatment of benign and malignant liver tumors and liver metastasis, tumors of the bile ducts.

Surgery of the pancreas

Treatment of benign and malignant tumors of the pancreas (resection of the head of the pancreas with preservation of the pylorus, resection of the pancreas with preservation of the spleen), surgical treatment of chronic inflammation of the pancreas.

Surgery of the small, large intestine and colon

Treatment of benign and malignant tumors of the large intestine, diverticular disease.

Surgery of chronic inflammatory diseases of the gastrointestinal tract (CED, IBD)

Laparoscopically assisted restorative coloproctomucosectomy for ulcerative colitis and operations with preservation of healthy segments of the small intestine in Crohn’s disease.

Thoracic surgery / VATS (video-assisted thoracic surgery)

- Operations for lung cancer and lung metastases, including broncho- and angioplastic interventions.

- Surgery of mediastinal tumors, diseases of the thoracic wall and pleura, as well as pneumothorax.

- Treatment of inflammatory diseases of the lungs, defects of the diaphragm, as well as disorders of the thoracic cage.

- Video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS).

Endocrine surgery

Surgery on the thyroid gland, parathyroid glands or adrenal glands for benign or malignant diseases.


Treatment of hemorrhoids, anal fissures, anal fistulas and tumors of the anal canal.


Spectrum of services vascular surgery


The most modern methods of examination and therapy provide an opportunity to treat the full spectrum of vascular diseases. Thanks to the integration of various special disciplines, we are able to offer all modern and individually selected forms of treatment. With the use of a minimally invasive approach, the load is reduced and many interventions can be performed with limited risk.


Outpatient treatment


Outpatient emergency department (24 hours daily in the central emergency department)


Aorta (aneurysm)


Carotid artery


Obliterating atherosclerosis of peripheral arteries (showcase disease)


Diabetic foot


Vein expansion (varicose veins)



Inpatient department



Operative treatment


Aneurysm (open method, endovascular, hybrid):


-          Aorta (thoracic, thoracic-abdominal, abdominal)


-          Visceral arteries


-          Peripheral arteries


-          Supraaortal branches


With stenosis of the aorta (carotid artery)


With stenosis of the subclavian artery/obstruction (subclavian artery)


With stenosis of the shoulder-head trunk (near the aorta artery)



Peripheral arterial obstruction


(including a cortical, ankle and pedal shunt)


Stenosis of the renal arteries


Dissection of the aorta (aortic rupture of the abdominal cavity)


Traumatic vascular injuries


With compression syndrome of the upper aperture of the thorax (neurovascular compression syndrome)


Vascular tumors


With diabetic foot syndrome (in conjunction with the clinic of traumatology and orthopedics)

Interventional treatment


(together with the Institute of Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology):


Stenosis (narrowing) in the entire arterial part of the vessel (PTA/PTA and stent)


Lysis therapy for acute arterial obstruction (medical removal of thrombi)
