About us

The specialist in surgery, abdominal surgery and vascular surgery, Assoc. Prof. Asst. Lect. Dr. Emanuel Sporn, is a specialist in abdominal and breast surgery in Vienna, where he runs two private offices. He focuses on hernia surgery, breast cancer surgery, gastric and intestinal surgery (including examination of the stomach and intestine), oncological surgery and gallbladder surgery. Prof. Sporn has also attained additional qualifications, such as in vascular surgery, for example. These help him, on the one hand, better to evaluate disorders, and hence, on the other hand, to manage major procedures for tumor patients more reliably and to come to grips more confidently with critical situations during a procedure.

He has conducted research at a renowned university and hernia center in the USA during his medical career and has thus played a significant role in the development of a new surgical technique in the field of minimal invasive surgery. Numerous scientific papers and presentations before a specialized medical audience at national and international conferences testify to Prof. Sporn’s authority in his specialist field.

After 20 years at the University Surgical Hospital at the Medical University of Vienna, Prof. Sporn has now resolved to devote himself entirely to the treatment of his private patients. He runs two private offices in Vienna and performs surgery for his patients at the best private hospitals in Vienna and in Europe.

Patients can consult Prof. Sporn at one of his offices for the initial discussion and examination. If Prof. Sporn recommends a surgical procedure, he will perform this at one of the hospitals with which he collaborates as a partner. Interdisciplinary collaboration with colleagues in other specialist fields complements and completes his range of medical services and guarantees the optimum treatment for his patients.

The personal care of the patient from the initial consultation to the follow-up care is close to his heart because the abdominal and breast specialist in Vienna knows how important it is to give the patient a feeling of security during a stressful period. Thus, he is always available to answer questions and gladly takes the time to build a stable basis of trust between doctor and patient. In addition, Prof. Sporn is available for a request for a second opinion.

Since minimal invasive surgery was a research emphasis of Prof. Sporn early on, he also focused on the application of laparoscopic surgical techniques in the clinical setting at an early stage and has perfected these over the years. Prof. Sporn has established a reputation as an internationally recognized expert in the field of hernia surgery and is now sought after by patients from across the world who would like to benefit from his expertise and undergo surgery by him in Vienna.

He is also considered an acknowledged expert in the field of breast cancer surgery and intestinal surgery and is the first port of call for patients from across Austria and, above all, from eastern Europe and Russia.
