DRK Altenkirchen-Hachenburg Hospital
Department of General and Abdominal Surgery (320975)
About the department
The Department of General and Abdominal Surgery at the DRK Altenkirchen-Hachenburg Hospital performs all types of surgery to treat abdominal organs, thyroid disorders and proctology. The procedures are mostly minimally invasive, i.e. performed through the holes in the abdominal wall ranging in size from 5 to 12 mm. Also, the surgeon monitors the surgical site using a high-resolution camera. The department is headed by Dr. Robert Hanisch.
Another focus of the department is placed on proctology with surgical endoscopy (colon and colonoscopy) and on the treatment of diabetic foot syndrome and chronic wounds.
The department treats patients with malignant tumors. Each patient receives an individual treatment plan both before and after surgery. It is possible thanks to close cooperation with therapists, oncologists, radiologists and other doctors working in the hospital. Thus, it is possible to provide a smooth process of interdisciplinary treatment in accordance with the latest therapeutic achievements.
The range of surgical (minimally invasive) services includes:
- Thyroid and parathyroid surgery
- Fundoplication (for heartburn)
- Liver surgery
- Gallbladder removal
- Removal of small intestinal part, adhesion solution in case of pain
- Removal of fractions of the large intestine and rectum (also in colon cancer)
- Abdominal wall fractures and inguinal hernias with mesh implantation
