About the department keyboard_arrow_down

Clinic for general, abdominal and transplant surgery at the Medical University of Hanover offers comprehensive care for surgical treatment of benign and malignant diseases of the entire abdominal cavity. The main areas are surgery of the pancreas, stomach surgery, surgery of the liver, biliary tract/gall bladder, surgery of the small intestine and colon, laparoscopic surgery, endocrine surgery, hernia surgery, internal peritonectomy resection and transplantation of organs, namely liver, kidneys and pancreas.

Transplant Center at the Medical University in Hannover is the largest center of its type in Germany. Currently, it performs 140 liver, 200 kidney and 20 pancreas transplants a year. Since the first kidney transplant in 1968 and the first liver transplant in 1973, its founder has conducted here more than 4,000 kidney transplants and 2,000 liver transplants. For some metastatic tumor peritoneal carcinogenic diseases, such as ovarian carcinoma or carcinoma of the appendix, a positive result can be achieved by treatment via radical polyabdominal resection, removal of peritoneum or additional intraperitoneal hyperthermic chemotherapy for treatment of diseases which cannot be treated differently. Such therapy, in most cases does not lead to recovery, but may, in certain circumstances, substantially improve the life quality and prolong it significantly. Here, first of all, you need to think about the peritoneal carcinosis upon carcinoma of the appendix (peritoneal pseudomyxoma) and ovarian carcinoma. The clinic has been using this form of therapy for several years. Until 2003, this method has been used for treatment of 67 patients. Despite the high possibility of complications, there was improvement in the quality of life and its substantial prolongation.
