Dr. Ulf Nahrstedt
General and abdominal surgery
From the oesophagus to the rectum - that is the area of expertise of our general and abdominal specialists. They treat your problems in the entire abdominal area and gastrointestinal tract with modern procedures. Treatments are interdisciplinary, with the expert team from Internal Medicine.
From comprehensive diagnostics, for example via endoscopy, to surgical treatment: Specialists from the Surgical and Internal Departments will jointly treat you in our Abdomen Centre. You can come to our interdisciplinary abdomen consultation hours at Schoen Clinic Hamburg Eilbek where experts from both specialist fields will assess your condition and co-ordinate the next steps of your treatment. That means you do not need to introduce yourself to various consultants.
What else makes us stand out? We carry out an above average proportion of minimally invasive procedures, so-called key hole surgery, of excellent quality. This enables us to take care of complex surgical procedures. We are the only hospital in Hamburg to be certified as a competence centre for minimally invasive surgery by the German Association for General and Abdominal Surgery (DGAV) as well as by the Surgical Consortium for Minimally Invasive Surgery. You can therefore be sure that your abdomen is in good hands with us.
Whether inguinal hernias, groin hernias, incisional hernias, umbilical hernias, pelvic floor hernias or internal hernias - as a centre certified by the German Hernia Association, we specialise in the surgical treatment of various hernias. Whenever possible, we use minimally invasive surgery. We also employ stabilising plastic nets to establish quick and lasting resilience of the area being operated on and a faster recovery for you.
