About the department

The Department of Abdominal, Thoracic and Vascular Surgery at the University Hospital Marburg UKGM offers all modern surgical interventions in these fields. Specialization covers the treatment of diseases of the abdominal organs, endocrine glands, pathologies of the lungs and chest wall, pathological vascular lesions of all parts of the body. In addition, kidney transplantation and pancreas transplantation are part of the surgeons' tasks. Whenever possible, operations are performed using minimally invasive techniques that have several advantages over classical interventions.

The department is headed by Prof. Dr. med. Detlef K. Bartsch. According to the rating of the Focus magazine, the doctor is on the list of the best specialists in the field of endocrine and abdominal surgery!

The department pays particular attention to cancer surgery. It performs surgery in patients with malignant tumors of the entire digestive tract (esophagus, stomach, liver, biliary tract and gallbladder, pancreas, small and large intestine), lungs and mediastinal organs, as well as endocrine glands (thyroid gland, adrenal glands, pancreas). In 2017, the department’s specialists performed more than 3,700 operations on the abdominal organs.

Another important focus of ​​the department’s work is endocrine surgery. The department has an excellent national and international reputation in the field of research on the etiology and treatment of endocrine diseases. Due to the high treatment efficiency and excellent results of surgical interventions, the department is one of 4 Reference Centers for Endocrine Surgery certified by the German Society for General and Abdominal Surgery and the Center of Competence (1 of 20 in Europe) of the European Neuroendocrine Tumor Society (ENETS).

Many extensive interventions are performed on an outpatient basis. The most common indications for outpatient surgery are inguinal and umbilical hernias, installation or removal of catheters for chemotherapy, diagnostic removal of lymph nodes, removal of superficial tumors, etc.

More and more operations are performed using laparoscopic or robotic techniques, minimally invasively. The advantages of laparoscopy are not only in the cosmetic aspect. After such interventions, pain is less pronounced, patients can quickly return to their normal motor activities and they are less likely to suffer from wound infections or ventral hernias.
