About the Department of General, Abdominal Surgery and Surgical Oncology at Helios Hospital Berlin-Buch

The Department of General, Abdominal Surgery and Surgical Oncology at the Helios Hospital Berlin-Buch offers the full range of services in these medical fields. Whenever possible, operations are performed using minimally invasive techniques, which are the gold standard of modern surgery. The outstanding quality of medical care is confirmed by numerous prestigious certificates, including certificates from the German Cancer Society, the German Hernia Society, etc. In addition, the department provides innovative hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC), which is available only in the most progressive clinics in Europe. The Head Physician of the department is Prof. Dr. med. Roger Wahba.

One of the key focuses of the department is the treatment of peritoneal tumors, abdominal metastasis and sarcomas. The basis of clinical practice is the use of the most sparing and at the same time the most effective therapeutic methods. The doctors of the department work closely with specialists in the field of chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Thus, each patient receives treatment according to the optimal, individually developed plan. Special treatment methods in this area include intraoperative electron radiation therapy (targeted destruction of cancer cells, which provides optimal protection for healthy tissue and neighboring organs), hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (chemotherapy, during which the abdominal cavity is washed with a warm chemotherapeutic solution that kills the remaining tumor cells after surgery) and pressurized intraperitoneal aerosol chemotherapy (a special chemotherapeutic solution is injected into the abdominal cavity, after which it penetrates into all areas affected by the tumor). These treatment methods are used only in highly specialized leading clinics in the world.

Hepatobiliary surgery also occupies an important place in the work of the department. The doctors of this field treat liver, gallbladder and bile duct tumors. Before the appointment of a particular operation, the patient will undergo a CT scan, which allows to get a three-dimensional image of the organ and plan the intervention as accurately as possible. The therapeutic options in this area include tumor resection, radiofrequency ablation, transarterial chemoembolization, selective internal radionuclide therapy, stereotactic radiotherapy and many other treatment methods.
