About the department
The Department of General and Abdominal Surgery at the Catholic Clinic Koblenz-Montabaur offers the full range of surgical treatment of diseases of the abdominal organs. One of the priority focuses is emergency medical care in acute abdominal diseases. To receive the most effective results in particularly difficult cases, the department involves specialists from the related fields, such as gastroenterologists, therapists, etc. The department also includes the Competence Center for Hernia Repair, which is certified in accordance with all German standards in this medical field. The department's surgeons are highly competent in the field of inguinal, umbilical and diaphragmatic hernia repair. The department is headed by Dr. med. Michael Düsseldorf.
The department's surgeons prefer minimally invasive surgery, which today has become the gold standard of surgical treatment in developed countries. The sparing minimally invasive techniques are mostly used in diseases, such as inguinal hernia, diaphragmatic hernia, gastroesophageal reflux, morbid obesity, large intestine diseases, appendicitis, as well as pathologies of the liver, gallbladder and spleen. Such operations are performed through small skin incisions, which provides a number of advantages, such as fast recovery, minimal pain, low risk of developing postoperative complications.
However, in some cases, it is impossible to avoid open surgery. Such interventions are also carried out at the highest level in the department. The clinical practice involves the use of cutting-edge surgical computer systems and precision instruments, which in combination with the experience and competence of surgeons ensures the most favorable intervention outcome. In particular, the operating rooms are equipped with ultrasonic scissors, high-frequency coagulators and neuromonitoring systems for visual and ultrasound imaging of nerve endings.
