Center for General Surgery

Surgery has a long tradition at Wehrle-Diakonissen Private Hospital, location Andräviertel.

The Center for General Surgery not only offers a focus on classic and venous surgery, but also on all established forms of minimally invasive surgery. With respect to priorities all established forms of minimally invasive surgery are implemented.
