Pancreatic surgery

Our Clinic for General, Visceral and Thoracic Surgery is one of the leading centers in Europe in the area of pancreatic diseases.

Our aim is to share with you our clinical experience, based on the treatment of more than 2,000 patients in the last 15 years and the latest scientific findings. 

Our primary objective is to offer you individually customized treatment. This requires a high degree of cooperation with non-surgical disciplines, especially medical gastroenterology and endoscopy.

The pancreas is both an exocrine gland producing pancreatic juice which plays a vital role in digestion and an endocrine gland producing hormones to regulate glucose balance.

Our center offers treatment of the following conditions:

  • acute pancreatitis
  • chronic pancreatitis
  • pancreatic tumors
  • pancreatic injuries
