The Department of Surgery at the University Hospital Bonn provides patients with medical care and treatments in the full range of general, visceral, thoracic and vascular surgery including emergency care. Another focus of the Department is transplant surgery (of liver and pancreas). A particular focus for interdisciplinary cooperation is on cancer and its metastases treatment. The head of the Department is Univ.-Prof. Dr. med. Jörg C. Kalff. 

As the Department of maximal care with 99 beds, the Department of General, Visceral, Thoracic and Vascular Surgery is a supra-regional center in this field. About 40 physicians as well as 100 nurses, medical staff members and other workers under the direction of Univ.-Prof. Dr. med. Jörg C. Kalff take care of patient health here. Apart from inpatient treatment, the Department also provides care to about 15,000 outpatients every year. 

In the outpatient clinic and during special consultations patients are prepared for the planned surgical procedures and receive aftercare after the release from the hospital. Patient care is also carried out in close cooperation with other departments / units of the University Hospital Bonn. A particular focus for interdisciplinary cooperation is on cancer treatment (esophagus, stomach, intestines, liver, pancreas, lungs, thyroid, adrenal glands, skin and soft tissue) and treatment of their metastases. The multidisciplinary treatment concepts are developed for the patients in the interdisciplinary tumor conferences of the University Hospital Bonn according to the latest scientific findings. Moreover, the Department of General, Visceral, Thoracic and Vascular Surgery maintains intensive cooperation with the Center for Integrative Oncology of the medical faculties of Cologne and Bonn (CIO), which was founded in 2008.
