In order to maximize the healthcare, the range of services of the university clinic and Department of General and Abdominal Surgery at Ulm University Clinic covers both scheduled surgeries and emergency medical care in the field of General and Abdominal Surgery.

The clinic office of follow-up care of cancer patients, in close cooperation with the tumor center proposes a structured post-operative follow-up of cancer patients. From here you and your attending physician will automatically receive reports about the reception time. Minimally invasive surgery is also a component of the regular working practice of the clinic. Its concept is reduced to the fact that the surgery is performed with a camera through a minimal aperture in the stomach (or chest cavity, etc.), while leaving only minor external scars. Besides, the surgical trauma, i.e., tissue damage and pain, are minimized.
