About us

The Vivantes Klinikum Spandau has nine medical specialist departments and 525 beds. Every year, just fewer than 43,600 patients are treated, of which around 26,000 are treated in outpatients and about 16,000 as inpatients.
144 doctors and 377 nurses look after the patients' well-being. In all, 705 staff members work in the hospital.

Among others, the Klinikum Spandau also includes the North Tumor Center, the Center of Minimally Invasive Surgery, the Center for Severe Skull and Brain Injuries, the North Vascular Unit, the Orthopedic Unit and the Memory Clinic.

The Vivantes Klinikum Spandau is a teaching hospital of Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin. The Clinic of Abdominal and Vascular Surgery specializes particularly in minimally-invasive surgery, hernia surgery, colorectal surgery and obesity surgery. The Vivantes Endoscopic Training Center at Spandau represents the high point of specialization in the area of endoscopic surgery.
In addition to endoscopic routine operations, such as gall bladder removal, appendix removal, diagnostic laparoscopy and adhesiolysis, the endoscopic repair of incisional, incitional, abdominal wall and hiatal hernias is carried out. Likewise, benign and malignant colorectal diseases are operated on with minimal invasion. This applies also to benign and malignant gastric diseases.
In addition, rectal surgery is carried out with ultrasound. The endoscopic treatment of extremely overweight patients is also provided by means of stomach reductions and gastric bypass surgery.

Together with the North Tumor Center and the radiotherapy with the cutting edge equipment, multimodal therapy methods are applied to gastrointestinal malignant tumors using the latest scientific knowledge.

We are also extremely experienced in the treatment of complicated proctological diseases, such as anal fistulas with sphincter involvement, anal prolapse, recurring diseases and weakness of the sphincter.
