The Department of General, Abdominal, Transplant, Vascular and Pediatric Surgery covers the whole range of services in these fields. The department specializes in the treatment of diseases of the upper and lower gastrointestinal tract, liver, gallbladder, pancreas, thyroid and parathyroid glands, adrenal glands, as well as overweight. In addition, the department is a recognized Center for Vascular and Pediatric Surgery. The Chief Physician of the department is Prof. Dr. med. Christoph-Thomas Germer.

The department successfully performs treatment of diseases of the upper and lower gastrointestinal tract. In addition to swallowing disorders and other functional disorders of the esophagus and stomach, the department offers the effective treatment of benign and malignant tumors. The department is part of the Comprehensive Cancer Center Mainfranken, thanks to which the treatment meets the highest international standards. The malignant diseases of the colon and rectum are treated within the Colorectal Cancer Center, certified by the German Cancer Society.

Other activities of the department include the treatment of diseases of the liver, gallbladder and pancreas. The department's specialists are experts in the treatment of gallbladder diseases. In addition to the treatment of gallstone disease, the surgical treatment of rare malignant diseases of the gallbladder and biliary tract is carried out here. The department also provides treatment for benign and malignant diseases of the liver and pancreas. Liver transplantation is performed within the Interdisciplinary Hepatology Center.

The spectrum of vascular surgery covers all traditional reconstructive interventions on the vessels below the diaphragm and above the aortic arch.When performing such operations, doctors use minimally invasive, endovascular methods.

Special attention is paid to pediatric surgery. The department's specialists proceed from the fact that children are not small adults and therefore need an individual approach and special treatment methods. A variety of benign and malignant diseases in children are successfully treated using surgical interventions. Along with the interventions on the abdominal organs and surgeries for inguinal and umbilical hernia, it also offers medical care in the field of pediatric traumatology (conservative and surgical treatment of bone fractures and the consequences of accidents).
