About us Prof. Thomas Gruenberger

Professor Thomas Grünberger is Head of the Department of Surgery at the Klinikum Favoriten in Vienna. This hospital is the Vienna Hospitals’ (Wien Kliniken) center for the treatment of hepatic, pancreatic, and biliary tract tumors. As a specialist in surgery who also specializes in abdominal surgery, the expert in tumors of the liver, the pancreas, and the biliary tract and gallbladder has an outstanding reputation in the field of abdominal surgery in Vienna.

Professor Grünberger has specialized in the field of hepatic and pancreatic surgery since 1998. While he worked at hospitals in Australia, Professor Thomas Grünberger also developed skills which make him a very experienced hepatic and pancreatic surgeon. Since then, Professor Grünberger has performed more than 3,000 hepatic operations and over 700 pancreatic surgeries, which underscores his leading position in abdominal surgery in Vienna. Aside from his clinical work at the Klinikum Favoriten, Professor Thomas Grünberger is also an active member of the Austrian Society of Surgical Oncology (ASSO) and of the European Society of Surgical Oncology (ESSO), as well as a member of numerous other specialist associations. He also trains prospective physicians and nursing students and is a much sought-after consultant, both at home and abroad. Professor Grünberger conducts intensive research work in the field of oncology, which is published in numerous scientific publications.

He also holds the Chair of Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary (HPB) Surgery at the Sigmund Freud Private University in Vienna, which recently entered into an intensive teaching and research collaboration with the Vienna Hospitals (Wien Kliniken), with the Klinikum Favoriten serving as the leading surgical hospital.

Professor Thomas Grünberger’s special fields at the Klinikum Favoriten include caring for patients with hepatic tumors, liver metastases, pancreatic tumors, carcinoma of the pancreas, carcinoma of the gallbladder, and carcinoma of the biliary tract. The chronic liver conditions treated by Professor Thomas Grünberger and his team at the Klinikum Favoriten in the Vienna Department of Abdominal Surgery, provided they require surgical treatment, include hepatitis (inflammation of the liver) and cirrhosis of the liver (shrunken liver).

A typical surgical procedure at the Klinikum Favoriten in Vienna in the field of liver surgery is resection of the liver (or partial resection of the liver). Partial removal of the liver may be necessary for various benign and malignant diseases. If secondary tumors have formed in the liver of a patient with a malignant tumor condition (cancer), the experts at the Klinikum Favoriten refer to this condition as “liver metastases.” Depending on the primary tumor (i.e., the position of the main tumor), Professor Grünberger and his team will attempt to remove the metastases in the liver surgically. The metastases may, however, also be susceptible to a drug treatment or to radiotherapy.

Since the establishment of robot-assisted HPB surgery, patients with tumors in the liver, bilary tract, and pancreas have increasingly been treated with this minimally invasive surgical technique, the main advantage of which is that patients can be discharged from hospital earlier and in better physical condition due to the reduced surgical trauma and have a better aesthetic result thanks to the small incisions.

Partial or total removal of the pancreas is another typical surgical procedure. The tumor-bearing part of the pancreas (head, body, tail) is removed via an abdominal incision in the central upper abdomen and, at the same time, the severed portions of the upper abdomen (stomach, biliary tract, remaining pancreas) are reconnected in order to reestablish normal digestion.

In an interdisciplinary team with the specialists in other disciplines, Professor Thomas Grünberger will invariably develop the most promising treatment concept for the patient.
