A clinic director who is an absolute expert not only in all matters relating to the gastrointestinal tract, but also in diseases of the pancreas, the esophagus and the liver - that is Professor Lutz Mirow. This high-performance physician, who is as committed as he is competent, is regarded as a prime example of the development of modern healthcare: Under his leadership, the Clinic for General and Visceral Surgery at the Chemnitz Hospital became a recognized top address in the entire region.
Since Professor Lutz Mirow took over the management of the Clinic for General and Visceral Surgery of the Chemnitz Hospital at the Flemmingstraße site in April 2018, the already great reputation of the clinic has expanded enormously. With the experienced specialist, a specialist could be recruited who, with tireless commitment, ensured that the clinic always keeps abreast of the international state of scientific innovations - and thus regularly ensures that new standards are set, for example in surgical procedures.
For Professor Mirow, the decision to manage the clinic in Chemnitz was motivated not only by the high-caliber team, but also by the modern, well-equipped surgical areas with integrated high-tech medical technology. The high standard has been continuously expanded under the medical director, who was born in Waren on the Müritz: With the pioneering Versius system, the Chemnitz Clinic soon provided a milestone in German surgical history - as the first surgeries with the novel surgical robot on German soil took place in the Saxon metropolis on the northern edge of the Ore Mountains. So Prof. Mirow is one of the pioneers of the Versius system, whose robotic arms can be rotated in all directions so that the relevant region can be reached with extremely high precision. Today, the renowned clinic director is one of the most experienced surgeons in this field - and has completed numerous surgeries on the gallbladder, intestine, stomach, esophagus and pancreas with Versius.
Top-equipped clinic: plenty of experience with robotic surgery
However, the high level of equipment in the department was only one argument in favor of the Chemnitz clinic: the interdisciplinary cooperation with partner clinics and the competence of the medical and nursing staff are also among the absolute plus points of the clinic. Thus, the complete range of interventions corresponding to the service spectrum as well as emergency surgeries can be performed at a consistently high level.
Whether it concerns diseases of the thyroid or parathyroid gland, the esophagus, the stomach, the liver or the pancreas - Professor Lutz Mirow is familiar with all the details, from diagnostics to individual therapy and follow-up treatment. Whether it's reflux, a hernia, problems with the rectum or the liver, anyone who turns to the Chemnitz Clinic is always in the right place. Professor Mirow is also one of the pioneers of the Alfa pump system, which can be used to eliminate fluid accumulation in an innovative way, for example in the case of ascites.
Oncological surgery: Enormous expertise in cancer diseases
The Clinic for General and Visceral Surgery in the Saxon metropolis also has a high reputation when it comes to cancer: It specializes in the surgical treatment of all malignant tumors of the gastrointestinal tract - and is known for the balanced use of multimodal therapy concepts, which today enable a particularly long preservation of quality of life even in metastatic tumor diseases. This applies to tumors of the esophagus as well as to those of the pancreas, intestine or stomach. Here too, the more experienced the surgeon, the higher the quality of the surgery and the better it is for the patients. With his experience in minimally invasive surgical techniques and his exceptional knowledge of computer-assisted surgery, Professor Lutz Mirow and his surgical team naturally rank among the most sought-after physicians. There is no question about it: The clinic is clearly considered a locational advantage in the "European Capital of Culture 2025".
