Specialists of the Department, headed by Prof. Dr. med. Dieter Berger, have a special expertise, for instance, in the field of abdominal surgery. The Multispecialty Hospital Lindberg offers treatment of diseases of the gastrointestinal organs, peritoneum and other organs (e.g., spleen) as well as endocrine glands (e.g., thyroid gland).

The medical team of the Department applies both conventional operative methods (laparotomy) and most advanced minimally invasive techniques, e.g. laparoscopy. In case of the latter, surgical tools are inserted through a "keyhole technique" and managed with the aid of a camera, which ensures a direct visualization of affected organs.
