At regular conferences of the council of oncologists and narrow specialists, there are discussions and coordination of the treatment plan for cancer patients.

Surgeons at the Visceral Medicine Centre use laparoscopic surgery to perform multiple operations. The essence of the technique is that the operating instrument is introduced into the body through minimal incisions. This has many advantages for the patient: less pain, short rehabilitation period and hospital stay, low risk of scarring.

Thanks to modern equipment, in many cases, doctors can avoid surgery. For example, during endoscopy, surgeons remove benign polyps and cancers in the early stages. Also, endosonography is performed at the Visceral Medicine Centre. This is a modern gastroenterological examination method combining endoscopy and ultrasound.

For particularly complex procedures, surgeons at the Visceral Medicine Centre Asklepios Barmbek use computer-assisted surgery planning.
