Complex liver and pancreas surgery in Cairo, Egypt
An institute founded by German doctor Theodor Bilharz lies in Gizeh, close to the Pyramids, and treats patients without means in liver or other gastroenterological diseases. It was established for research on the spread of so-called Bilharziosis in the Nile Delta. Since 2011, Prof. Schmidt performs surgery on liver and pancreas, which cannot (yet) be done by the doctors there, for free. In the course of this commitment, the egyptian surgeons are trained in complex surgery.
At the 2nd International Congress for hepatobilio-pancreatic and transplant surgery in Cairo in 2014, Prof. Schmidt informed the participants about new methods of treatment of metastases in the liver.
