About the department
The Department of Adult and Pediatric General, Abdominal Surgery at the Hospital Waldbrol Oberberg offers the full range of surgical treatment in its areas of specialization. The key attention is paid to the application of sparing minimally invasive techniques, which are the gold standard of modern surgery. The department's specialists have rich and successful experience in the surgical treatment of abdominal cancers, including preoperative diagnostics and postoperative care. The department's competence also includes proctologic interventions and thyroid surgery. The department has 40 beds for patient hospitalization. The department is headed by Dr. med. Stefanie Hild. She is an experienced surgeon and a true professional dedicated to her work.
The department’s surgeons often treat patients with inguinal, umbilical and incisional hernias. They also perform operations on all organs of the abdominal cavity, including stomach, small and large intestine, rectum, gallbladder and bile ducts, liver, spleen, pancreas, kidneys and adrenal glands. When treating abdominal cancers, the doctors from the Department of Oncology, which is part of the certified Cancer Center Oberberg, are actively involved in the process.
Proctology specialists are responsible for operations for inflammatory processes in the perianal region, treatment of anal fistulas and fissures, as well as for hemorrhoid surgery (Milligan-Morgan technique, Longo procedure, hemorrhoidectomy with linear stapler). In addition, the department performs transanal resections of adenomas and polyps, stapled transanal rectal resection (STARR for a combination of hemorrhoids with rectal prolapse).
Special attention should be given to the surgical treatment of thyroid diseases. When performing such interventions, the surgeons use a binocular magnifier and intraoperative neuromonitoring to exclude lesions of the nervus laryngeus recurrens.
The service range is complemented by pediatric surgery. The operations in children are performed by specially trained surgeons, as a rule, on an outpatient basis. For example, the department often performs operations for inguinal hernias, undescended testicles and phimosis.
