About the department

According to the Focus magazine, the Department of General, Abdominal and Vascular Surgery at the Charite University Hospital Berlin ranks among the top German medical facilities specializing in the treatment of bowel and lung cancer!

The department offers all the modern surgical options for the treatment of diseases of the abdominal cavity and blood vessels. The department's doctors have expert knowledge and vast experience in the treatment of colorectal cancer, stomach, esophageal, pancreatic cancers, liver metastases, inflammatory bowel diseases (diverticular disease, Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis). Also, they specialize in the surgical treatment of vascular pathologies and thyroid diseases. The department is headed by PD Dr. med. Katharina Beyer.

The department's medical team provides first-class medical care using the very latest scientific achievements and demonstrates understanding of the needs and wishes of each patient. The excellent technical equipment plays a significant role in the successful clinical practice of a medical institution as well. The department offers modern operating rooms with high-precision computer equipment, monitoring systems, devices for robot-assisted surgery, etc. In addition, the department has a hybrid operating room.

The department's surgeons widely practice both classical surgical interventions and modern surical procedures, including minimally invasive surgery ("keyhole surgery") and robot-assisted surgeries (surgery using the da Vinci Surgical System). In the field of vascular surgery, the  doctors also offer endovascular interventions. Due attention is paid to interdisciplinary cooperation, for example, with the Departments of Gastroenterology and Oncology. Thanks to cutting-edge equipment for endoscopic and radiological examinations, the department's specialists can make the most accurate diagnosis, determine the stage of the pathology and its localization, and also accurately plan the surgical treatment.

  • Surgical oncology
    • Bowel cancer
