About us

The specialist surgeon and abdominal surgeon, Assoc. Prof. Asst Lect. Emanuel Sporn specialises in abdominal and thoracic surgery in Vienna, where he operates two private practices. His emphases are gastric and intestinal surgery, oncological surgery, hernia surgery, gallbladder surgery and gastroscopy and colonoscopy. Prof. Sporn has also completed additional training, such as in vascular surgery. This helps him, on the one hand, better to evaluate conditions and, on the other hand, unfailingly to gain control of critical situations during a procedure.

Together with his practice as a doctor of choice, Prof. Sporn is also employed as a consultant at the Medical University of Vienna. During his medical career, he has also engaged in active research within the context of several projects and studies and he has been a leader in the development of a new surgical technique in the field of minimally invasive surgery. A considerable number of scientific papers and lectures before audiences of medical professionals at national and international conferences testify to Prof. Sporn’s authority in his specialist field.

Patients can see Prof. Sporn in one of his practices for the initial consultation and for examinations. If Prof. Sporn recommends a surgical procedure, he will perform this at one of the hospitals with which he collaborates as a partner. The personal care of the patient, from the initial consultation to the aftercare, is close to his heart because the abdominal specialist in Vienna knows how important it is to give the patient a feeling of security in a stressful period. Thus, he is always available for questions and he takes the time to establish a stable foundation of trust between the doctor and the patient. Furthermore, Prof. Sporn is also available for a second opinion.

Since minimally invasive surgery represents a research focus of Prof. Sporn, he prefers to utilise this, and with a high level of dependability. Minimally invasive techniques are based on very small surgical accesses, through which surgical instruments, a light source and a camera are introduced. In this manner, the surgeon operates directly on the organ concerned, without having to expose this by means of a large incision. For the patients this means less pain, more rapid healing and less risk of infection.
