About

Dr. Rolf Schlumpf MD is a specialist in visceral surgery, focusing on visceral tumour surgery, bariatric surgery (obesity surgery), and thoracic surgery. He deals with the surgical treatment of the internal organs of the abdomen and chest cavity. To guarantee an optimal result with the best care, Dr. Schlumpf collaborates with a wide range of disciplines. This multidisciplinary team also includes radiology, gastroenterology, oncology, and anaesthesia. This ensures the patient the best possible care.

Dr. Schlumpf is a leading and globally recognised specialist in the field of visceral surgery. In 1995, Dr. Schlumpf introduced the laparoscopic gastric band in Switzerland. Over the last 30 years, he has gained considerable experience in the field of visceral surgery and has received numerous awards for his research. For example, he received first prize for excellence in experimental research at the Fifth Congress of the Union of Swiss Surgical Societies, Lucerne. In 1997, Dr. Schlumpf became a consultant in the Department of Surgery at the Cantonal Hospital of Aarau. In 2012, he became a partner of the Centre for Surgery Zurich at the Hirslanden Clinic.

The wide operating range of Dr. Schlumpf guarantees comprehensive care. In addition to being a partner at the Centre for Surgery Zurich at the Hirslanden Clinic, Dr. Schlumpf works part-time as senior consultant at the Männedorf hospital. Patients benefit from this successful cooperation between the two hospitals, which has led to new standards in complex visceral surgery, thoracic surgery and tumour surgery.

Visceral surgery, also known as abdominal surgery, can be divided into pancreatic surgery, liver surgery, oesophageal surgery, hernia surgery, bariatric surgery, and intestinal surgery. Both benign and malignant diseases are treated by an interdisciplinary team. Because Dr. Schlumpf is a proven specialist in both visceral and thoracic surgery, he can cover this interdisciplinary range and safely perform complicated operations.  A speciality of Dr. Schlumpf is intestinal surgery, which mainly deals with malignancies such as colon cancer.

To protect the patient, most surgical procedures are minimally invasive (keyhole surgery). The body cavity is only opened when absolutely necessary.

More information about Dr. Schlumpf can be found on the website of the Hirslanden Clinic as well as on his own website.
