The Department of General, Visceral and Transplantation Surgery is an excellent example of surgical expertise in the field of oncology, offering the whole range of surgical interventions. Over 200 beds in 10 clinical units are provided for inpatient surgery. Functionally, these units are grouped into
- general surgical care units,
- intermediate care units,
- interdisciplinary intensive care units, and
- special units for organ transplantation or, for example, acute dialysis.
The patient treatment is performed at five locations: Heidelberg University Hospital, Salem Hospital in Heidelberg, GRN Clinic in Sinsheim, GRN Clinic in Eberbach, and the District Hospital in Heppenheim. Depending on the type of disease and the patient's place of residence, one of these locations is suggested for surgical treatment.
