By already concluded discussion of the contract, today I am happy to inform you that Prof. Dr. Schwenk will take up his duties on July 1, 2017.
Our clinic will continue the fruitful traditions laid down by Prof., Honorary Doctor of Sciences Hans-Joachim and glorified the hospital far beyond Solingen, together with Mr. Prof. Dr. Sсhwenk as the chief doctor of the Clinic for General, Visceral and Vascular Surgery.
