The explosion happened shortly before 8am and is believed to have been caused by a pressurized oxygen cylinder.
A fire spread through the surgery on the third floor of the building following the explosion, but was put out quickly by firefighters.
The injured patient was waiting for an operation when the cylinder exploded, according to the Münchner Abendzeitung.
