Medical specialisation is the driving force behind progress – for one clear, simple reason. Highly specialised medical specialists are proven to deliver the highest quality because usually they have focused on a speciality from an early stage and pursue it with all their passion. Dr George Saada is an outstanding example of this.

Highly specialised consultant: endocrine surgery in all its facets
As an endocrinology specialist, Dr Saada has an in-depth understanding of all issues relating to hormone levels and hormone-producing organs. He is familiar with all kinds of disorders, be they growth, development or reproduction-related. It is important to consider the whole picture when making a diagnosis – hormonal disorders are often reactions to stress and strain in patients' private or professional lives. It is important to find a specialist who is able to listen carefully and empathetically.
Dr Saada began focusing on the multifaceted field of thyroid-related complex diseases at an early stage – he became passionate about the subject during his medical studies at the University of Damascus. When he came to the Marienhospital in Hamm, Westphalia, in 1999 for further gastroenterological training, he deepened his knowledge – and extended it further over seven years of further training in general, visceral and vascular surgery at the Franziskus Hospital in Bielefeld. He became Senior Consultant at the Clinic for General, Visceral and Endocrine Surgery at Klinikum Stadt Soest Scenic in 2019 and eventually moved to the scenic area of Gehrdener Berg just outside Hanover.
The range of possible symptoms and diseases is extremely diverse and widespread – diseases of the thyroid gland can be detected in almost one in three people in Central Europe! Whether it is Struma nodosa, a nodular enlargement of the thyroid gland, Graves' disease or Hashimoto's disease – the specialist is familiar with every variation. As the thyroid gland and cervical lymph nodes can play an important role in cancers, timely intervention by an experienced specialist can be crucial. With his diagnostic and surgical expertise, patients with all types of thyroid and cervical lymph node malignancies and carcinomas are guaranteed the best treatment with Dr Saada.
Enormous expertise: thyroid, parathyroid, pancreas and adrenal gland
Endocrinological diseases not only affect the thyroid and parathyroid glands, they can also affect the pancreas and adrenal glands for example. It is extremely important to be able to have access to a knowledgeable and empathetic specialist.
The adrenal glands are closely connected to the thyroid and parathyroid glands. Dr Saada is one of the foremost experts in minimally invasive surgery in this area – including using a surgical robot. The specialist often has to deal with issues related to obesity. Morbid obesity is an officially recognised chronic disease and is closely related to thyroid problems, such as hypothyroidism.
High precision: oncological visceral surgery
An important aspect of the daily routine of the senior consultant of the Clinic for General, Visceral and Endocrine Surgery at the KRH Klinikum Robert Koch Gehrden is cancer surgery. This includes the entire field of oncological visceral surgery – i.e. the abdominal cavity, as well as the entire digestive tract – from the oesophagus to the anus. With his high precision, Dr Saada also focuses on preventing relapse – the recurrence of tumours or other carcinomas.
Dr George Saada is not only listed in the Leading Medicine Guide as a specialist who is always passionate about his focus on endocrinology and thyroid diseases, he is also listed as a member of the German Thyroid Centre. In addition, he is a member of numerous scientific societies, such as the German Society of Surgery (DGCH) and the German Society for General and Visceral Surgery (DGAV). Many surgical working groups – from Minimally Invasive Surgery (CAMIC) to Endoscopy and Sonography (CAES), Endocrine Surgery (CAEK) and the Surgical Working Group on Oncology (CAO-V). His outstanding profile in these professional societies is due in no small part to his numerous publications, in which Dr Saada has addressed topics such as bariatric surgery, oesophageal surgery and issues relating to surgery of the adrenal glands. His recognition as a senior bowel surgeon by the German Cancer Society is a reflection of this expertise.
This high-level networking is a perfect match for the innovative approach with which Dr Saada leads his clinic as Senior Consultant, which always focuses on interdisciplinary cooperation. It perfectly complements the basic idea that this hospital on the outskirts of Lower Saxony's state capital has prescribed to. Here, all aspects of modern healthcare are fulfilled at the highest level – with top-class clinics and centres that do everything for the rapid recovery of their patients.
