About us

Dr Thomas Mansfeld is a specialist in “general, abdominal and special abdominal surgery, coloproctology” and is the Senior Consultant of the “Gastrointestinal Medicine: General and Abdominal Surgery – Gastroenterology and Endoscopy” Department at the Asklepios Hospital, Wandsbek, in Hamburg. Specialising in abdominal surgery, Dr Mansfeld’s department cares for patients with abdominal conditions. In addition, Dr Mansfeld can draw on almost all surgical and non-surgical, diagnostic and therapeutic techniques, as well as a competent, interdisciplinary team consisting of specialist surgeons and specialists in internal medicine (gastroenterology). Their emphases are the conservative and surgical treatment of conditions of the large intestine and rectum, the surgical treatment of abdominal wall hernias and the diagnosis and treatment of pancreatic conditions. Their particular expertise is in laparoscopic surgery (“keyhole surgery”). Dr Mansfeld and his team care for approximately 2,700 patients per year.

Thanks to the centralisation of surgery and gastroenterology under one roof, patients with abdominal complaints are examined by specialists from both medical fields. As a result, the diagnoses are made more quickly and more reliably and the optimum treatment is commenced earlier. Hence, redundant examinations can be avoided. Now, in Dr Mansfeld’s interdisciplinary department, a condition is treated conservatively no longer than necessary and surgery is not resorted to too quickly. Abdominal surgeons, gastroenterologists and internal specialists together determine the ideal treatment for the patient in the course of the daily departmental meeting. This interdisciplinary approach is also most especially advantageous for cancer patients and allows individualised treatment planning. So, the treatment of patients with a tumour condition is discussed and decided during a tumour conference, in which, together with Dr Mansfeld, other specialists such as oncologists and radiologists participate.

The Hamburg-Wandsbek Hernia Centre specialises in the treatment of hernias. A hernia is where a section of an organ protrudes through a weak spot in the tissues, generally externally. In extreme cases, the protruding organ (e.g. the intestine) can become strangulated and become necrotic. This type of strangulated hernia must be immediately surgically treated as a medical emergency, in a hospital such as the Hamburg Hernia Centre. In order to avoid a strangulation, any hernia should be examined at an early stage by a specialist and, if necessary, treatment should be commenced. Thanks to the high level of medical quality in the care of patients with hernias, the Hamburg Hernia Centre has been awarded a Seal of Quality for its surgical treatment of inguinal hernias, umbilical hernias, incisional hernias and abdominal wall hernias. The German Hernia Society has designated the Hamburg Hernia Centre as a Centre of Excellence for hernia surgery. Thanks to this certification, the Hamburg Hernia Centre guarantees that its patients are treated in accordance with the most up to date medical insights by experienced surgeons with particular expertise in hernia surgery.
