First, patients must present themselves in person at our practice in order to review the findings and determine the optimal therapy.
For this purpose, you can conveniently book an appointment online via our DOCTOLIB appointment calendar as a new patient for abdominal wall and inguinal hernias.
After the presentation in our hernia consultation with our specialists, an appointment for an outpatient or inpatient surgery will be made with the attending physicians.
We perform outpatient surgeries in our practice on a weekly basis. Patients must have good mobility and no risk factors such as blood thinning medication or severe cardiopulmonary disease.
During the consultation, patients are given a surgical folder, which includes the anesthesia information sheet. This form must be filled out and brought to the surgery.
The anesthesiologists call the patients 1-2 days before the operation to clarify important details. Therefore, we need a working cell phone number.
On the day of outpatient surgery, patients must be sober. This means that no meals or liquids may be taken up to 6 hours before anesthesia. An exception is non-carbonated water, which may be drunk up to 2 hours before a general anesthesia.
After about 1 hour, you will be fully conscious again and can leave the practice accompanied by a trusted person. You will receive prescriptions for pain medication and wound dressings, if necessary, as well as a certificate of incapacity for work. In case of emergency, you will always have an emergency phone number from the surgeons and the anesthesiologist.
The first follow-up appointment is the day after the operation in our practice. Here we change the first dressing and discuss wound care with you once again. Of course you can ask us all important questions.
The second control appointment is after 4-5 days. If the wound looks good, no complications are to be expected, so that a final control takes place only after 8-12 weeks. If the patient does not have any complaints, it is not necessary.
In case of worsening of wounds or increasing pain, you can visit our practice after consultation from 09:00 to 17:00. After 17:00 and on weekends, please contact the nearest hospital.
We currently operate on inpatient hernias using minimally invasive techniques at the Schöneberg Clinic and the Havel Clinic. These operations include an overnight stay.
In these cases, too, patients must present themselves in person at our practice in order to review the findings and determine the optimal therapy procedure. For this purpose, you can conveniently book an appointment online via our DOCTOLIB appointment calendar as a new patient for abdominal wall and inguinal hernias.
After the presentation in our hernia consultation with our specialists, an appointment for the inpatient surgery is made with the attending physicians and a follow-up appointment for a surgical consultation is scheduled.
Currently, all patients must undergo a Corona PCR test 48 hours prior to surgery. This is usually done at the appropriate hospital.
You are welcome to book an appointment online in our appointment calendar DOCTOLIB under the specialty "Visceral surgeon and proctologist" with our doctors. We are looking forward to it.
