In addition to general surgery, at Rudolfinerhaus you will find many subspecialties of surgery – and the appropriate surgeon for your problem.
Our operating rooms are provided with the most modern equipment for surgery, supported by a comprehensive infrastructure. Our on-site histology laboratory ensures rapid reporting of biopsy specimens and frozen section diagnostics. Thus, the surgeon is able to discuss the findings with a histopathologist even during the operation.

Endoscopic and radiological investigations can also be performed directly at the hospital by the respective expert. Regardless of whether your intervention is performed as a day-clinic procedure or during a hospital stay – afterwards you will receive the best medical and nursing care.
