In recent years, surgery of the internal organs has become even more specialized. New procedures, such as minimally-invasive methods of treatment, have become more popular. With this increased specialisation, the results of treatment have continued to improve. At the Hirslanden Klinik Aarau, the field of visceral surgery is part of a wide network of other specialist medical fields. This interdisciplinary cooperation enables us to diagnose and operate on complex symptoms, such as tumour or vascular diseases.
Aesthetic and reconstructive surgery allows the patient to return to his or her original appearance, get rid of the age-related changes or correct some imperfections. Reconstructive surgery at the Clinique de Genolier is represented by top-rank experienced professionals that use the latest technologies, techniques and medications. The operations performed most frequently are breast surgeries, laser skin regenerations, facelifts, liposuctions, nose corrections (rhinoplasty), ears shape corrections.
Surgery means, to take responsibility for a human being, which means that it is a matter of mutual trust. Surgery is also a matter of experience. The main focus of the work of the department is surgery of the endocrine glands (thyroid, parathyroids, adrenals), the entire digestive system (esophagus, stomach, small and large bowel, rectum), especially the liver and pancreas as well as minimally invasive surgery.
General and digestive surgery, despite its name, is a surgical specialty that focuses on the abdominal organs: General Surgery Centre in Clinique La Colline treats the intestines including the oesophagus, stomach, small bowel, colon, liver, pancreas, gallbladder and bile ducts, and often the thyroid gland.
To obtain medical services of the highest quality, more and more people prefer healthcare in Switzerland. Switzerland offers not only fabulous views, but also modern clinics where specialists can cure the most serious diseases. For example, alongside with outpatient treatment, we offer inpatient care in partnership with Hirslanden Klinik Stephanshorn. Close interdisciplinary cooperation of surgeons and therapists distinguishes our eSwiss Medical and Surgical Center.
Department of Gastroenterology and Abdominal Surgery
Our Center of Gastroenterology and Visceral Surgery in Andreas Clinic Cham Zug is a network of specialists, which brings together the disciplines of gastroenterology and visceral surgery, combining their skills.
Surgery in Switzerland is one of the most advanced medical fields. Outpatient surgery is the most promising trend, as it reduces the risk of postoperative complications. The Outpatient Surgery Department of Clinique de Valère admits patients that stay in the clinic for one day only.
Abdominal surgery is concerned with diseases of the organs of the digestive tract, the diaphragm and other abdominal organs such as the spleen and endocrine glands (for example the thyroid). In the hospitals, surgeons use both conventional surgical techniques (laparotomy) and also ultramodern minimally invasive techniques such as laparoscopy.
In surgery, injured body parts are joined or sewn together again so that they heal, or diseased organs are completely removed (ectomy) or partially removed (resection). Obstructed organ systems are opened so that they work properly again. New organs are transplanted or prostheses are implanted.
General surgeons deal with the diagnosis and surgical treatment of various diseases. General surgeons also treat injuries, physical disabilities, and developmental abnormalities, using also the appropriate conservative (non-surgical) treatment. As the surgical specialty, abdominal surgery offers, in particular, surgical procedures to treat diseases of internal organs and blood vessels.
Professional expertise in the field of inflammation of female genital organs and obstetrics, outstanding surgeons and state-of-the-art equipment – these are the factors that make Clinique Generale a leader in the field of complex general surgeries, abdominal surgery, vascular surgery, plastic face surgery or ENT surgery at the best level of safety and comfort. Besides, our team of surgeons works in close cooperation with professional anesthetists. Surgeries would be impossible without effective anesthesia. Anesthesia is certainly as important as the surgery itself.
