About us

Prof. Robert Rosenberg has longstanding, comprehensive experience in all general and abdominal surgery. He completed his previous training at renowned hospitals, including in the USA. Thanks to his expertise as a surgeon, Prof. Rosenberg has acquired an outstanding reputation in specialist circles. He heads the Department of Abdominal Surgery at the Basel-Country Cantonal Hospital as its Chief Physician and where he also heads the Intestinal Center.

The surgical team in Liestal provides the entire range of abdominal surgery in open, laparoscopic (minimal invasive / keyhole technology) and robot-assisted surgical technique (DaVinci robot). With this wide surgical range, we are able to advise you individually in accordance with the situation and we offer you the best surgical technique. Here, we will counsel you on the basis of the national and international guidelines and recommendations. Our expertise includes the entire range of tumor surgery of the esophagus, stomach, liver, pancreas, as well as the small intestine, the large intestine and the rectum.

We also offer you particular expertise in endocrine surgery (thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal surgery), in proctology (e.g. treatment of hemorrhoids, fistulae, fissures, incontinence and evacuation disorders), in hernia surgery (inguinal hernias and abdominal wall hernias), in reflux surgery, as well as in gallbladder surgery.

Our obesity team will advise and treat you in our Nutrition Center. Today, following the appropriate evaluation, surgical reduction of the stomach (gastric bypass or sleeve resection) provides an outstanding treatment option for treating excessive weight and for diabetes mellitus.

Our Central Patient Management ensures smooth processing of the formalities from the first contact up to the surgery.

The Department of Surgery at the Liestal Cantonal Hospital provides highly specialized surgery. Liestal is approximately 11.2 miles (18 km) from Basle.
