About us

Associate Professor Dr Andreas Dacho, with his Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery Practice, serves as the Medical Director at the ATOS Hospital, Heidelberg. He is one of six medical practitioners in Germany, who approach plastic facial surgery as a specialist both in plastic and aesthetic surgery and in otolaryngology. Dr Dacho favours neither of the two disciplines above the other, but consciously chooses to combine the methods and expertise of both fields.

For this reason, he has completed a variety of advanced and postgraduate courses, both in plastic surgery and in the ENT area and has worked with experts within both disciplines during his medical career. In this way, Dr Dacho combines his knowledge of two different disciplines and can therefore make the best provision for his patients in respect of both aesthetics and function.

Thanks to his renowned expertise, Dr Dacho is a popular scientific speaker and chairman of important medical conferences and a valued member of a variety of national and international specialist associations. As well, he has published a large number of articles in various publications. Dr Dacho is also active in training: as an Associate Professor, he has lectured in human medicine and otolaryngology at the Leipzig University Hospital since 2008.

In his Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery Practice in Heidelberg, too, Dr Dacho always has a sympathetic ear for the concerns and the needs of his patients. The face naturally conveys a person’s identity to the outside world and plays a prominent role in an individual’s self-image and hence in his contentedness. A natural, healthy appearance stands for self-confidence, vitality and reliability.

For Associate Professor Dr Dacho and his team, it is always a desire to help their patients to achieve this goal, regardless of whether the restoration of their own appearance following an accident or surgery or its adaptation for personal reasons is concerned. At the same time, the modern, pleasantly furnished practice areas, with their bright, natural materials, reflect our aspiration to naturalness. The contentment of the patients he has treated is also clearly apparent in the outstanding patient evaluations Dr Dacho has been given on an online patient evaluation portal and in the social media.

From the doctors to the care personnel, the entire highly motivated team at the ATOS Hospital works together for your recovery. So, each individual patient can feel confident of always being provided with the best treatment possible and, at the same time, of being cared for competently and with kindness. The medical specialists take the time for their patients, answer their questions and take your concerns and fears seriously. Here, using gentle techniques, the objective is invariably to permit the patient to return to his daily routine as quickly as possible.

Together with the outstanding care, a further feature of the ATOS Hospital and of each of its specialist departments is the very high standard of hygiene. All in-patients are screened prior to surgery in order to be able to commence the adequate treatment for possible acute or chronic infections beforehand. Independent monitoring confirms that the standards of hygiene and the hygiene management at the ATOS Hospital far exceed the criteria set by statute.
