Department of Gastroenterology

Department of Gastroenterology

The focus of the Department of Gastroenterology lies on the diagnosis and (minimal invasive) therapy of abdominal diseases.

The nine-member medical team with its comprehensive medical knowledge has a broad medical-technical spectrum at its disposal. This includes high-definition ultrasound, endosonography and video endoscopy procedures plus state-of-the art magnetic resonance and computer tomography technology. For the diagnostics and treatment of diseases of the gall- and pancreatic ducts in particular, endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreaticography (ERCP) is available. This procedure makes use of a special endoscope in combination with an X-ray contrast agent. The diagnostic procedures are complemented by comprehensive laboratory analysis.

The main focus of medical care is on patients with indistinct illnesses of the liver, gall duct troubles, oncologic diseases, and those with complex adenoma of the upper and lower gastrointestinal tract. Due to the close cooperation of the Department of Gastroenterology with the specialist departments of cardiology, neurology, geriatrics and nephrology, patients are assessed and treated holistically.

A special feature of the Department of Gastroenterology is its modern and at the same time personal atmosphere. The facilities are lodged in a new building; the rooms are generously configured and provide the latest standard in medical and esthetic respects. More than 30 nurses and orderlies care for the patients, not only in medical matters - they will also lend personal support. The excellent teamwork provides for a smooth workflow, which spares more time for personal contact. Patient satisfaction rankings regularly show our clinic on one of the top places regarding examination results and personal devotion.

"Our patients can count on us without hesitation. They experience a comprehensive, differentiated and empathic diagnostic workup of their troubles in a holistic medical context."

Dr. Thomas Nordmann, Chief Physician of the Department of Gastroenterology
