Exploring new dimensions in surgery

When you enter Operating Theatre 3 of the new central operating department at Pius Hospital Oldenburg, Germany, the first thing you notice is the large, three-part mural on the back wall: a dreamlike landscape of white dunes, a tranquil sea and blue sky. "We believe that an attractive environment significantly improves the workplace atmosphere," says Dirk Weyhe, Professor of Visceral Surgery at the University and director of the University Clinic for Visceral Surgery at Pius Hospital Oldenburg. And that, he stresses, is indispensable for the success of the operations that are performed here on a daily basis.
