Microtherapy

The Competence Center for Microtherapy at the Wiener Privatklinik offers image – guided and minimal invasive therapy options concerning diseases of various organs or body parts.

In the last years therapy has rapidly developed from open surgery (major surgery) to minimal invasive surgical procedures. So far, the last step of this development has been the new field of microtherapy.

Microtherapy allows leading treatment instruments like needles, catheter and tubes with the help of image – guidance by x-raying, computer tomography and ultrasound precisely to specific parts of the body, without risking to injure important anatomical structures like nerves, vessels or vital organs. For this, only a small pinprick under local anaesthesia is necessary.

The advantages of this treatment are various and range from the avoidance of a general anaesthesia, a very low risk of infection and complication, no actual scarring and clearly reduced post-operative pain to a generally shorter hospital stay and a more rapid convalescence.

In the Competence Center for Microtherapy, patients are attended in close cooperation with the best specialists in the fields of general medicine, surgery, dermatology, vascular surgery, gynaecology, inner medicine (angiology, hepatology, oncology), neurosurgery, neurology, plastic surgery, physical medicine, orthopaedics and trauma surgery.
