About us Dr. med. Diego de Ortueta, FEBO

The Aurelios Eye Center Recklinghausen was founded with a focus on providing innovative health services. The Ophthalmic Group Practice Recklinghausen offers the complete spectrum of conservative and surgical treatment in ophthalmology and thus is able to offer the highest level of patient care and the best services possible for patients in the northern Ruhr area and its surrounding regions.
In the practice’s own surgery department in Recklinghausen, equipped with modern technology, our eye surgeons, who can look back on over 50,000 performed surgeries, work closely with a well trained team.
Surgeries are performed on an outpatient as well as an inpatient basis at the St. Vincenz Hospital in Datteln.
A close cooperation with other consultants furthers the steady medical improvement of our staff which is necessary for any progress in research in order to offer the best medical treatment and care. 

The practices’ spacious rooms are all equipped with modern diagnostic and therapeutic devices and thus make it possible for our eye surgeons to collaborate in different medical activities and research.
