General and Abdominal Surgery Department

Doctors of the Department specialize in the surgical treatment of abdominal cavity, endocrine system pathologies, and obstetrics.


What is minimally invasive surgery?

Minimally invasive surgeries are carried out through the 5-10 mm incisions. Doctors use special instruments and a mini camera to remove the tumor, cysts or polyps. The medical team controls the surgery process on the monitor. It allows a doctor to operate with high accuracy without damaging the healthy organs.

Among the advantages of the method are:

  • boosted injury recovery
  • minimal painful sensation after the surgery
  • an absence of big scars
  • the admission term is shorter than after traditional intervention.


Minimally invasive surgery training

Oncological surgery

Doctors specialize in stomach, colon, liver, pancreas, and esophagus cancers treatment. Surgical tumor removal is combined with chemo- and radiation therapies.

The treatment plan is developed individually for each patient, doctors discuss the advanced cases during the consilliums. Oncologists, radiologists, chemotherapists, hematologists and others meet together to consider the patient’s case. It allows choosing the most effective and safe treatment plan.

Specialists of the Department apply a minimally invasive surgical method to treat such diseases:

  • esophageal cancer
  • a stomach tumor
  • duodenal cancer
  • small-celled intestinal cancer
  • a tumor of the colon or rectum
  • pancreas cancer
  • metastases in the liver.

Cancer Center

Doctors of the Center specialize in the therapy of breast, colon, prostate, head and neck cancers.

Oncologists use such methods as:

  • Chemotherapy — cancer treatment with drugs. Doctors apply special “cold cap” to avoid hair loss during the treatment.
  • Targeted therapy — application of the drugs which directly influence a particular type of malignant cells. Targeted therapy causes much fewer side effects than standard chemotherapy.
  • Immunotherapy is a treatment with medicines that activate own patient’s immune system to kill cancer cells.
  • Combined chemotherapy is a simultaneous cycle of chemo- and radiotherapies. This method is more effective for cancer treatment than chemo- and radiation treatments separately.

Heart Surgery Department

Doctors of the Department specialize in the treatment of cardiovascular diseases. The surgeries are conducted in the hybrid operating theatres, where all the necessary equipment for open and minimally invasive operations is available.

TAVI — transcatheter aortic valve implantation without big skin incisions

Cardiac surgeons have been performed TAVI since 2010. The procedure is carried out through a fine tube (catheter), which is inserted in the femoral or carpal arteries. The implant is placed at the fine tube edge. Doctors control the intervention process using X-ray apparatus.

The procedure is less traumatic in comparison with the open surgery. A patient is discharged from the hospital in 1-3 days after TAVI.

Valve replacement applying Japanese Dr. Ozaki’s method

It is a state-of-the-art operation during which doctors place biological valve made of patient’s pericardial sac.

The procedure is conducted through a small incision between ribs in most of the cases.

The biological valve replants better than mechanic one, and a patient does not need to take the anti-clotting medicines for a lifetime.

"If I knew that everything could pass so easily and naturally, I would have performed the operation 3-5 years ago
image image image image
Operation Laterzhe to eliminate habitual dislocation For 10 years I suffered from the usual dislocation of the shoulder joint - damage to the card. In early March of 2019, after another dislocation, I decided that it was time to get rid of this ailment and immediately began searching for the clinic. Moreover, I wanted to find the best surgeon and the best clinic where I would receive high-quality care. Bookimed Somewhere in 2-3 hours after I left a request on the bookimed site, Maxim Voloshin contacted me and we discussed my situation in great detail with him - we talked, I must say, for about 20-30 minutes. After the conversation, I began to collect all the necessary analyzes - MRI and CT. On readiness, he sent them to Maxim, and he, in turn, sent requests to pre-arranged clinics. During the week, plans of operations and their cost from all clinics were received. Maxim and I chose the most adequate clique in our opinion, which showed a truly individual approach exactly to my shoulder. I want to note that Maxim was always in touch, even on Sunday he gave me 15-20 minutes of communication, which I must say is very nice. About Helios Krefeld in more detail: room I went to the operation with a girl, so we chose a comfortable room with additional accommodation. Extremely comfortable, with its own toilet, shower, sink. Very reminiscent of the standard hotel room Hilton :) Food A huge range of dishes, you choose what you eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner. In addition, in the lobby there is a coffee machine and tea with fruit, sometimes there are desserts. Care I liked very much that they are really watching you. No need to run around the clinic to pass some kind of analysis and stand in queues. Upon arrival, right in my room they took blood for analysis, checked the pressure and temperature. Then I was recorded for a conversation with an anastasiologist and for regentgen. No queues - you are called to the appointed time. Later there was a conversation about the operation, where they explained to me what they would do and how. The next morning, I had an operation, but after that I was also observed for 4 days. At the moment, 3 weeks have passed since the operation, and I can already draw some conclusions about its quality. Already now I can do those exercises that according to the plan only after 3-4 weeks, which is very cool in my opinion. The pains of the movements go away and the freedom of movement returns. If I knew that everything could pass so easily and naturally, I would have performed the operation 3-5 years ago. Thanks to Professor Clayton N.Kraft and Operating Surgeon Klaus Sternemann

Bookimed is a company of a good modern level, in any case do not think not to trust
I want to evaluate the work of Bookimed as a whole on the results of organizing the treatment of a father well. After examining the results of the surveys, we were presented with options for treatment. Despite the fact that initially we practically had a clinic for treatment selected (on our own), we revised and made a decision to undergo treatment at a clinic in Germany, which Bookimed offered. For all organizational issues, both Bookimed and the logistics company from the clinic offered support. We did everything on our own, but still it is nice when they want to help you. There were minor inconsistencies in organizational issues. But with the mines that provide support, always in touch and help them solve. But as for the treatment process at Helios Krefeld, everything is on the level. The result is satisfied. Of the minuses - the discharge process is not fully organized, the time for receipt of documents is not specific and rather long. A translator is needed. After we returned from treatment, we are awaiting the receipt of documents (conclusions) from the clinic, we have not left us on this issue either. Bookimed is a company of a good modern level, in any case do not think not to trust. The main thing is to keep the level and only raise it.

"I was very pleased
He underwent a replacement of the t / b joint. The clinic is good, the rooms are comfortable and spacious. I was with my wife, both were satisfied with the accommodation. Professor Kraft operated, it was at the highest level, he was very pleased, there were no complications, they put him on his feet that evening, on the third day he was already walking along the corridor, on the 5th day he was sent for rehabilitation. healed quickly, the pain from the suture didn’t really bother, after 3 weeks everything went away. Professor Kraft is very attentive, he came in person, answered questions, told the nuances. The junior staff did not speak English well, which caused problems. Rehabilitation is very intense and sensible. Gymnastics, fitness equipment, massages, walks, procedures - everything was selected individually and contributed to a quick recovery. Thank you Bookimed, everything is organized well, quickly and on time. I was very pleased.
