About the department keyboard_arrow_down

The Department of General, Abdominal and Thoracic Surgery at the Luisenhospital Aachen under the direction of Prof. Dr. med. Reinhard Kasperk offers you surgical treatment of all clinical pictures of the abdominal cavity, thorax and thyroid gland. If possible, surgical procedures are minimally invasive. The Department specializes in the treatment of hernias, thyroid surgery, as well as in proctology. These medical focuses have been successfully certified by the German Cancer Society and other professional surgical societies.

One of the key focuses of the Department is the treatment of thyroid and parathyroid glands. For many years now, the Department at the Luisenhospital Aachen has been the only hospital in the region certified with the seal of excellence “Competence Centre for Thyroid and Parathyroid Surgery” by the German Society for General and Visceral Surgery. This quality mark can be awarded only to those departments that offer surgery at the highest level, confirmed by external quality certificates. A high level of surgical care can be confirmed not only by a large number of operated patients, but also by a low number of complications.

Another focus is on stomach diseases. Today, peptic ulcer disease is mostly treated with drugs. If this treatment is ineffective, the surgeon can remove a part, rarely the whole stomach. Similarly, most of the stomach bleedings can now be treated non-surgically (i.e. endoscopically) so that only severe cases require surgery. In case of benign and malignant stomach tumors the situation is different. These always require surgical intervention and for benign tumors it is often performed laparoscopically. 

In malignant diseases, surgery is often preceded by chemotherapy, since it increases the chances of recovery. Even if the patient needs his stomach to be removed completely, the quality of life remains very good and causes virtually no restrictions (after a certain period of habituation).

In addition, the Department has a special competence in the treatment of lung cancer. The Department under the direction of Prof. Dr. med. Reinhard Kasperk is part of the interregional Cancer Center. The Center has state-of-the-art infrastructure: Pulmonary Function Laboratory, Sleep Laboratory, endoscopy with bronchoscopy, mediastinoscopy and video-assisted thoracoscopy. 

The Department of General, Abdominal and Thoracic Surgery at the Luisenhospital Aachen pays considerable attention to minimally invasive procedures performed with the use of a video camera and special endoscopic instruments. Another important focus is the treatment of malignant tumors in the lungs and thoracic cavity, whereby there are used modern (neoadjuvant) interdisciplinary treatment programs, including pretreatment to shrink the tumor and prepare the patient for the subsequent surgery.
