Our goal is to provide the best possible medical-surgical care to our patients with pancreatic diseases.
The European Pancreas Center is not only the leading surgical center in Germany and Europe, but also occupies a top position in pancreatic surgery worldwide. With the experience of well over 600 pancreatic operations per year, combined with the highest personal commitment of our medical colleagues and nursing staff, we can guarantee our patients the best possible treatment results. In the Surgical Clinic, we have the most modern infrastructure and innovative surgical techniques at our disposal for this purpose. Two DaVinci robot systems are used daily in our department.
Scientifically, too, the European Pancreas Center is one of the most renowned research institutions worldwide and, in particular, has significantly shaped the surgical therapy of pancreatic cancer by introducing new surgical techniques and radial resection procedures, and has significantly improved the prognosis.
In all of this, the patient is at the center of our efforts.
A patient suffering from pancreatic disease receives comprehensive support in Heidelberg for the treatment of their disease. The necessary specialists are all on site - diagnostics, perioperative clarification, surgery, postoperative follow-up, as well as nutritional counseling and socio-medical care are discussed and coordinated as an interdisciplinary and interprofessional team - for the benefit of our patients.
