Dr. Erich Bielesch has been the Chief Physician of the Department of General and Intestinal Surgery at the Intestinal Center of the HELIOS Hospital, Munich West since 2015. Following his studies in Human Medicine at the Ludwig Maximilian University in Munich, Dr. Bielesch remained true to his Bavarian homeland and, in 2004, completed his training as a specialist in surgery, focusing on intestinal surgery, at the Pasing Hospital. In 2007, he was appointed Chief Resident in the Department of General and Intestinal Surgery at the Pasing Hospital in Munich and the Coordinator of the Intestinal Center Munich West shortly afterwards. He completed additional training in special intestinal surgery in 2012, which, in addition to qualification as a specialist, includes the prevention, identification, treatment, follow-up care and rehabilitation of disorders, injuries, infection, malformation of internal organs, in particular of the gastrointestinal and endocrine organs.
Dr. Bielesch’ interdisciplinary team always treats its patients individually and in accordance with the latest medical insights. Great importance is attached to close collaboration with specialists in other disciplines for the provision of tailored treatment for intestinal cancer patients. Whenever possible, as a specialist in oncological surgery, Dr. Bielesch performs surgery using gentle, low-risk keyhole surgery, in which the surgery takes place within the more or less enclosed abdominal cavity or thoracic cavity, which ensures less interference with patient’s gastrointestinal function, less potential pain and a cosmetically better result. Many procedures in abdominal surgery can be performed both as open procedures and as minimal invasive / laparoscopic procedures. Together with his medical treatment team, Dr. Bielesch carefully weighs up the pros and cons here in order to be able to preclude potential risks as much as possible. The “full-blood physician”, Dr. Bielesch, is not just extremely technically adept but, above all, he is available to his patients and is committed to them so that a good foundation of trust develops – vital for any successful recovery process.
