About the department

The Department of Coloproctology at the Vivantes Humboldt Hospital specializes in diagnosis and treatment of the colon and rectum diseases. The diseases treated here include colon cancer, rectal cancer, anal cancer, as well as hemorrhoids, anal fistulas, anal abscesses, stool incontinence, pelvic prolapse, inflammation of the intestine such as diverticulitis and Crohn's disease. By using advanced technology, specialists are able to provide excellent results of treatment. The head of the department is Dr. med. Skander Bouassida.

The department has at its disposal state-of-the-art medical equipment. Advanced visualization systems allow doctors to conduct differential diagnosis. Laser surgery and modern surgical devices are installed in the operating rooms, for example, the robotic assisted surgical system DaVinci. This system operates by using a 3-D video camera and is currently considered the most advanced technology in the field of minimally invasive surgery. For surgical intervention doctors use minimally invasive operations, which are more sparing for patients and do not require large incisions.

The Department of Coloproctology has a team of specialists who provide special medical care in accordance with the individual needs of the patients. Here patients can use the services of a personal contact officer who will accompany the patient from the diagnosis, pre-surgical preparation to the subsequent treatment. Modern treatment concepts are aimed not only at surgical aspects, but also take into account  pain fighting therapy and psychological and social support.

In addition, the employees of the department are active in scientific research in the field of intestinal health. The department is a member of a number of professional societies and working groups.
