This is one of the leading hospitals worldwide for the treatment of pancreatic conditions and, thanks to extensive research, development projects and new interdisciplinary collaboration, St. Josef’s Hospital can continue to maintain this expertise.
At the same time, Prof. Uhl works at the Pancreatic Centre in Bochum, absolutely at the cutting edge of science and integrates the entire range of St. Josef’s Hospital and the hospitals of the Ruhr University into the treatment of his patients, as well.
In addition, the Pancreatic Centre in Bochum is certified as a Centre of Excellence for surgical conditions of the pancreas and Prof. Uhl was once again listed in one of the most prestigious physicians’ listings in Germany in 2014.
As a specialist pancreatic surgeon, Prof. Uhl in Bochum focuses on the patient with his condition and his relatives at the University surgical hospital: We want you and your relatives to feel that you are in good hands here.
As a maximum-care hospital, we offer services focusing on general and abdominal surgery. This guarantees care of the highest clinical-scientific and technical instrument-based standard. Predominantly, patients with all benign and malignant tumours of the digestive tract (oesophagus, stomach, small and large intestine and rectum, liver, gallbladder, pancreas) and endocrine organs (thyroid gland, parathyroid glands and adrenal glands) are treated.
The treatment is given in accordance with established standards and international guidelines, which are adjusted to the individual patient in each instance. In 2006, our hospital was the first bowel cancer centre in all of Germany to have been certified by the German Cancer Association. An interdisciplinary Tumour Board meets to discuss all malignant tumours in the gastrointestinal contract, in order to provide the patient with the best possible individual pre-treatment and/or follow-up care.
The certified interdisciplinary Pancreatic Centre is also one of the largest centres in the field of benign and malignant pancreatic conditions in Europe.
The hospital structure is felt to be very comfortable for both patients and relatives, with its almost “domestic character”. This guarantees that all appointments are organised starting with the central patient management: from the admissions ward, to the operation, to the intensive care ward and, subsequently, the general wards. This structure guarantees that a capable surgeon and professional nursing staff are always on hand for the patient.
