About the department

Beside general surgical primary care, the department of general, abdominal, endocrine and minimally invasive surgery at Academic Hospital Bogenhausen has two specific medical emphases: visceral surgery and endocrine surgery. A separate focus of the department is on the surgery of abdominal oncological diseases. The department is distinguished by extensive experience and interdisciplinary cooperation in all directions. The Head of the Department is Prof. Dr. med. Ayman Agha.

According to the Focus magazine rating of 2017, the department of general, abdominal, endocrine and minimally invasive surgery at the Academic Hospital Bogenhausen ranks among the top German departments specializing in colon cancer treatment!  

The Bogenhausen Hospital conducts more than 400 surgeries per year for bowel cancer and more than 50 for pancreatic cancer. The department passed had been checked and certified by the German Cancer Society as a center for the treatment of bowel cancer (including the direction of stomach cancer). In addition, the clinic is a certified multidisciplinary oncology center. Therefore, patients can be sure that their treatment program has been agreed upon and developed by many experts within the framework of an oncological consultation.

In cancer operations, surgeons remove damaged tissue from the greatest possible distance. As a rule, blood vessels, lymphatic vessels and lymph nodes are also removed so that tumor cells do not spread into other parts of the body and do not cause metastases. This is the radical principle, but the specialists of the department always try to make treatment as sparing as possible.

The main directions of the department:

  • Bowel cancer
  • Peritoneal Cancer
  • Thyroid Surgery
  • Surgery of the adrenal gland
  • Surgery in obesity
