- "Open" surgery via abdominal incision
- "Closed" operation via laparoscopy
Hardly any other discipline of medicine has contributed as much to the positive development of modern healthcare in recent years as hernia surgery. Particularly in the case of hernias and abdominal wall hernias in their many manifestations, much has been achieved - for example, with minimally invasive surgical methods, with plastic meshes or with so-called keyhole surgery. After all, such a weak point in the tissue, which leads to protrusions on the abdominal wall or in the diaphragm and ultimately also to pain, can only be eliminated by a surgical procedure - hernia surgery. It's good to be able to turn to a specialist who is not only familiar with this development, but who himself has contributed a great deal to hernia surgery playing a prominent role in medicine today - namely to senior physician mag. dr. Jurij Gorjanc, dr. med., FRCS, FEBS AWS in Klagenfurt.
Senior physician mag. dr. Jurij Gorjanc, dr. med., FRCS, FEBS AWS is an exceptional specialist in several respects. He is one of the hand-picked physicians who, as a non-Brit, has been accepted into the elite surgeons' association "Royal College of Surgeons of England", for which you have to be recommended by three international members at once. In addition, you have to undergo examinations at regular intervals and prove your high level of expertise. Thus, dr. Gorjanc is a "Fellow" of the oldest surgical association in the world and is entitled to bear the title "Fellowship of the Royal Colleges of Surgeons" - FRCS.
In addition, the highly specialized surgeon, who came to Austria from Slovenia in 2011, was president of the Slovenian Hernia Society for well over a decade. However, senior physician dr. Gorjanc ended this at his own request in order to devote all his energy to the further development of hernia surgery - and to his patients in the region around Klagenfurt.
High international honors: Renowned hernia surgeon
The fact that senior physician mag. dr. Jurij Gorjanc, dr. med., FRCS, FEBS AWS is one of the pioneers of high-performance medicine in the field of hernia surgery can also be seen in his second name affix: "FEBS AWS" stands for a new European specialist title in hernia surgery: "Fellow of the European Board Surgery - Abdominal Wall Surgery". This title, jointly established in 2021 by the European Board of Surgery and the European Hernia Society, is awarded to outstanding European specialists in abdominal wall surgery who have attracted attention through significant scientific publications, high surgical numbers and the positive assessment of national and international peers.
It is therefore no wonder that the Klagenfurt physician is in demand far beyond the region as an extremely sought-after hernia specialist. Dr. Gorjanc has gained additional international renown and a high profile in the professional world through his great commitment: As a member of the "Hernia International" organization, he completed numerous international aid missions and operated on people all over the world on a voluntary basis. His stations included Tanzania, Madagascar, Ghana and Liberia, as well as Mongolia and India, where he mostly treated patients with hernias.
