As a specialist in surgery with a focus on gastroenterology and minimally invasive surgery, I am well aware of the uncertainty and concerns that patients might have when facing an examination or operation.
Surgical procedures in the abdominal region are a focal point of my specialist work. I use minimally invasive (laparoscopic) surgical procedures whenever possible, which involve less recovery time after the procedure and offer cosmetic and aesthetic advantages.
Whether it be for a gallbladder or appendix removal, repair of inguinal hernias and operations on the oesophagus, stomach or intestines, I regularly opt for minimally invasive procedures. Thanks to the exceptionally high image quality of the internal video footage providing a good overview of the procedure from inside the body, operations and preparative procedures are usually much gentler and cause far less bleeding than traditional surgery. The time that it takes for patients to make a full recovery is also generally much shorter.
