About us

Prof. Guenther Winde is a specialist in abdominal surgery, special abdominal surgery and vascular surgery with additional training in the field of proctology. As such, he specialises in the prevention, diagnosis and surgical treatment of conditions, injuries and malformations of the internal organs, in particular, the organs of the digestive tract. At the same time, Prof. Winde’s specialist fields include, above all, oncological surgery, the surgical treatment of cancer conditions such as cancer of the colon, cancer of the stomach, liver cancer, pancreatic cancer, cancer of the oesophagus and thyroid cancer, and minimally invasive surgery, also called keyhole surgery. One further specialist field of Prof. Winde is the treatment of polyposis syndromes such as rectal polyps.

As its Senior Consultant and Director, Prof. Winde heads the Department of General and Abdominal Surgery, Thoracic Surgery and Proctology at the Herford Hospital, which provides the entire range of surgical procedures in the area of the neck, the abdomen and the thoracic cavity, and which is certified both as an Intestinal Centre and as a Pancreatic Centre. Specialists in a variety of specialist fields, including gastroenterologists, surgeons, oncologists and radiotherapists, work together in an interdisciplinary fashion under Prof. Winde at the Intestinal Centre of the Herford Hospital certified by the German Cancer Association, in order to provide patients with colonic cancer with the best possible treatment of the highest medical standard.

At the same time, the therapeutic and diagnostic emphases of the Intestinal Centre include surgery for colonic and rectal cancer, new treatment techniques such as antibody therapy and diagnostic techniques such as colonic inspection (colonoscopy), the examination of tissue samples (biopsies) and positron emission tomography (PET-CT). In the certified Pancreatic Centre at the Herford Hospital, Prof. Winde and his team address the preventative care, treatment and follow-up care of all conditions of the pancreas. These include, for example, acute and chronic pancreatic inflammation and pancreatic carcinomata and pancreatic metastases.
