About the department

The Department of General, Visceral and Transplant Surgery at the University Hospital Aachen under the direction of Univ.-Prof. Dr. med. Ulf Peter Neumann is one of the biggest visceral surgery centers in North Rhine-Westphalia. The priority area is oncologic visceral surgery with a special competence in the field of liver and pancreas.

He promoted the development of oncologic visceral surgery and appearance of such fields as hepatobiliary surgery, transplant and minimally invasive surgery in Aachen.  The Department of Surgery at the University Hospital Aachen pays a particular attention to the treatment of all benign and malignant diseases of the liver, biliary tracts, pancreas, esophagus, gastrointestinal tract and other endocrine organs. According to the Focus magazine rating of 2017, the Department of General, Visceral and Transplant Surgery at the University Hospital Aachen ranks among the top German departments specializing in colon cancer treatment!
