Abdominal surgery / Gastrointestinal diseases

Center of abdominal Surgery admits patients both with and without referral from their general medical practitioner. On primary contact, an interview and objective examination is carried out. If surgery is required, this is planned in collaboration with the patient which means that all paperwork has been completed by the end of the preliminary examination. If needed there is quick acces to CT, MRI and Ultrasound scan. Examination, treatment and follow-up are carried out by the same specialist medical practitioner.

The specialty is offered in: Vejle Aarhus København
