When Prof. Dr. med. Dr. habil. Thomas Carus FACS took over as head of the Department of General and Visceral Surgery at the Bassum Clinic on 1 January 2023, this announcement also attracted attention beyond Lower Saxony. This is because the Klinikverbund Landkreis Diepholz (Clinic Association for the District of Diepholz) has been able to attract a renowned specialist who is one of the proven specialists in minimally invasive surgery of the entire abdominal cavity, including bariatric surgery, vascular surgery and thyroid surgery. With several additional designations and as a graduate health economist, he is considered a prime example of a highly specialised, yet extremely versatile representative of modern high-performance medicine.
Prof. Dr. med. Dr. habil. Thomas Carus FACS as Head of the Department of General and Visceral Surgery at the Bassum Clinic - that's a perfect fit. What spoke in favour of the specialist with his comprehensive performance spectrum was that the range of abdominal operations, which is known far beyond the district of Diepholz, is to be further expanded in the future. The versatile specialist himself was inspired not least by the fact that the team he was to work with at the clinic in Bassum is a well-coordinated and highly competent team: Thanks to the top-class equipment with latest medical technology, this team has a great deal of experience in applying guideline-based treatment concepts with gentle treatment methods such as innovative keyhole surgery.
The fact that people in the region between Bremen and Osnabrück traditionally rely on receiving optimal quality treatment in Bassum also persuaded the renowned specialist to commit himself to work in this clinic located in the northernmost part of the Diepholz district. With an extensive team of surgeons, anaesthetists and nurses, Prof. Carus can make full use of his expertise, and that is something to be proud of, the more so because as specialist in general surgery, visceral surgery and vascular surgery he has additional training in special visceral surgery and proctology, as well as in sports medicine and emergency medicine, in addition to his experience in palliative medicine.
All-round top level performance: Enormous competence in many areas
In addition to his vast experience, the Wuppertal-born health economist has the ability to organise processes in all areas of medical care, nursing or social issues with a trained eye. Of course, his patients also benefit from his knowledge in areas such as management, demand planning or quality management.
Before coming to Bassum, Prof. Dr. med. Dr. habil. Thomas Carus FACS, being head physician of visceral and vascular surgery in Thuine, Emsland, had already set new accents in the treatment of obesity and chronic wounds - something he is doing at the new location as well. Even before that, one of his medical focuses during the time he was head physician at the Asklepios Westklinikum Hamburg, was on obesity and metabolic surgery.
In the professional world, Prof. Carus is not only known as an accomplished practitioner in everyday clinical practice, but also as the author of numerous scientific publications. One textbook in particular has brought him great international renown; that is his textbook "Atlas of Laparoscopic Surgery" which has already gone through several editions.
There was already great anticipation about the new chief physician in the Diepholz Clinic Association, which includes the clinic in Bassum as well as the clinics in Sulingen, the health centre in Twistringen and the facility in Diepholz itself. This is because his surgical skills as well as his interdisciplinary approach had already made rounds. Therefore, not only the people in the Lower Saxony region stand to benefit from the cross-location expertise of this proven specialist, but also the clinics in the surrounding area.
