Plastic Surgery & Hand Surgery

To the contacts

Plastic surgery is an extensive and diverse surgical speciality. The restoration of form and function, e.g. after accidents or tumour diseases, are just as much a part of the tasks of plastic surgery as aesthetic surgery and hand surgery.

For this reason, the Department of Plastic Surgery and Hand Surgery offers a wide range of operations and therapeutic options in reconstructive surgery, breast surgery, aesthetic surgery, burn treatment and hand surgery.

The operations are performed on an inpatient or outpatient basis, depending on the extent of the procedure required.

For the best possible individual treatment, we attach particular importance to the cooperation with other medical departments in our hospital and to a close and collegial cooperation with board-approved physicians.
