"Treatment at a leading international center...

   ...safe, gentle and customized for you."

"Hannover Medical School (MHH) is one of the TOP 50 hospitals worldwide. The Department for General, Visceral and Transplant Surgery at MHH specializes in diseases of internal organs with a particular focus on the complex surgery of tumors and their daughter tumors. As the largest transplant center in Germany, we also offer special expertise in organ transplantation, including living donation. I guarantee you closely coordinated, interdisciplinary patient care in certified MHH organ centers at the highest international level.

Several pioneering treatment methods have been developed at our clinic. We feel committed to this tradition and continue to actively shape progress. As the University Robot Center of Lower Saxony, we have the currently most modern Da Vinci Xi surgical robot at our disposal. In highly specialized teams, we regularly perform even the most difficult operations on the liver, pancreas, esophagus and rectum using minimally invasive techniques. Together with individually tailored surgery preparation and follow-up care, this enables us to offer you state-of-the-art treatment in a gentle and safe manner.

Please feel free to contact me personally for a second opinion!"
