Overview of Our Services

Visceral Surgery – What is it?

The term Visceral Surgery covers the surgical treatment of the abdominal organs, such as the stomach, the intestines or the liver. However, organs outside the abdominal cavity, like the thyroid or parathyroid gland, also belong to the field of Visceral Surgery. This area of Surgery used to be called General Surgery.

Hernias of the abdominal cavity (diaphragmatic hernias, umbilical hernias, inguinal hernias or incisional hernias) are treated by Visceral Surgery. The clinical pictures include both chronic and acute phenomena such as intestinal obstruction, inflammation or tumours.

In general, the first step is to clarify the cause of the symptoms and, if possible, to treat them conservatively, i.e. without surgery.
If a surgical intervention is necessary, it is carried out in a minimally invasive way if possible. This so-called keyhole surgery uses endoscopic camera technology and is used, for example, to remove the gallbladder. It involves minimal tissue trauma and small skin incisions.

Ayurveda Medicine – what is it?

Ayurveda literally means “knowledge of life” and encompasses all areas of life in addition to the teaching of diseases and their treatment.

Ayurvedic Medicine is based on traditional Ayurvedic pulse diagnosis and aims to restore or maintain the health of the organism so that it is in harmony with oneself and nature.

The balance of the five elements Air, Fire, Earth, Water and Ether in the Body is at the core of Ayurveda. These Elements are also the ones that make up the three body types or Doshas in Ayurveda.

Treatment methods include diet, lifestyle patterns, detoxification, mindfulness and marma therapy, the Ayurvedic vital point massage. The healing art of Ayurveda, also called the mother of medicine, which has been practised for over 7000 years, originated in India.

It is a great pleasure for us to be able to implement the ancient Ayurvedic knowledge in a modern setting and the background of conventional medicine in our clinic. In this way we transfer the ancient principles of Ayurvedic Medicine into our modern times and help you to regain well-being and inner balance. On request, we also combine Ayurvedic Therapies with surgical Treatments.

Your Stay at the RKM 740

In general, the first step is to clarify the cause of the complaints and, if possible, to treat them conservatively, i.e. without surgery. If a surgical therapy is indicated, we will explain to you in comfort how the intervention will be carried out and how the further treatment will proceed. All operations take place in our clinic’s own facilities. If an operation requires inpatient care, you will also be accommodated in RKM 740’s own patient rooms.

Questions & Answers

Before an Operation

The Surgical and Anaesthesiological preparation for an outpatient or inpatient operation takes place in advance in the specialist consultation hours. Both your surgeon and your anaesthetist will take plenty of time to answer your questions in a personal conversation. It is not necessary to come fasting for every operation. Your anaesthetist will discuss this with you in advance.

Clinic Suitcase Checklist

What you should bring with you: Bathrobe, comfortable clothes, comfortable shoes, nightwear, toiletries. What you don’t need: hairdryer, mobile phone charging cable, towels.

On the day of the Operation

On the day of the surgery, you will be in the reception area of the clinic on the 5th floor at the appointed time. We will welcome you there and accompany you to the surgical area. If you come with an attendant, he or she can wait for you in the waiting area of the Clinic.

After an Operation

After an outpatient operation, you can recover in the lounge or waiting area until you can be discharged home. Your surgeon will give you an appointment for a wound check in his consultation room.

After an inpatient operation and the recovery time or monitoring time in the recovery room, you will be taken back to your room. There you will also find a mobile phone charging module so that you do not need a charging cable. If you would like to use your time with us for deceleration or digital detox, tell us what you would like to read: we will place your book of choice on your bedside table. So that you don’t have to think long and hard about what to pack for your stay with us, we have put together a little checklist for you. On the day of discharge, your surgeon will give you an appointment for a wound check in his consultation hours.


Our range of meals is based on the latest nutritional findings. Both you and your relatives can choose from a selection of cold and warm dishes on our daily menu.
