You can assign patients with non-urgent diseases for an initial examination and to make an appointment for surgery (e.g. gallstone disease, hernias, etc.)

1) at the telephone number:+43-512-504-22511 on weekdays from 7:00 to 18:00, stating the name, date of birth and the (suspected) diagnosis of the patient. This would be the most pleasant way for both patients and us.


2) also send them directly to the appointment outpatient clinic of surgery.

For both ways, please note on the assignment: TERMINAMBULANCE of VTT and the (suspected) diagnosis. In this way, the patient can be cared for administratively effectively and thus quickly. The background is that patients who are registered or assigned to the appointment outpatient clinic are/are preregistered at a defined time. This ensures that waiting times are kept to a minimum.

3) Patients of the special class can also use the office of the clinic board (every Monday and Thursday 12:00) by appointment at +43-512-504-22602

You will find guidelines for the individual surgical diseases, which findings you can determine yourself beforehand and which we need to ensure patient safety, please refer to the individual focal points..

ALL patients receive an AMBULANCE SHEET for the inpatient stay after the initial examination and after an appointment for surgery has been made. On this form, important data, such as type and dosage of regularly taken medication, allergies, etc. are to be noted, which serve to increase patient safety. Please help the patient to fill out this part correctly. A confidential section must be filled in by the patient himself/herself. Thank you very much for your support!
