The Department of Trauma, Hand, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (Department of Surgery II) at the University Hospital of Würzburg under the direction of Univ.-Prof. Dr. med. Rainer H. Meffert offers the full range of trauma and reconstructive surgery, plastic and aesthetic, as well as hand surgery. The Department is in the Operative Medicine Center (ZOM). 

The Department of Surgery II at the University Hospital of Würzburg is the main part of the Trauma Center, which provides consultations for seriously wounded (polytraumatic) patients. For the postoperative treatment, there is a physiotherapy unit with the latest training equipment, including a thermal pool. The Department also has its private Section of Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery.     

The University Hospital of Würzburg annually performs over 3,000 operations on both outpatient and inpatient basis, as well as about 15,000 interventions for 8,000 outpatients (emergency and planned treatments). 

The focuses of plastic surgery at the University Hospital of Würzburg cover the whole body without any limitations. These include reconstruction of the body surface after accidents / neoplastic diseases, treatment of damaged functional structures, as well as female breast surgery. With the use of special techniques, such as microsurgery, the doctors of the Department provide treatment of the most diverse clinical pictures. With the most sparing surgery, these techniques allow to conceal considerable defects of the skin, soft tissues and bones.
