About the department keyboard_arrow_down

Various digestive diseases and stomach disorders are the most common reason for seeking medical care. The Gastroenterology and Hepatology Center of Klinik Im Park employs only the most qualified doctors. Their experience and knowledge allow effective treatment of digestive diseases, stomach disorders, diseases of the bowel, and liver. If necessary, we work closely with visceral surgeons, oncologists, intensive care physicians, radiologists and radiotherapists.

Our medical experts take the wishes of our patients very seriously. In addition to a high level of expertise, personalized patient care is extremely important to us. Our friendly and experienced team of endoscopists received special training. Endoscopy procedures are considered to be an extremely effective diagnostic method, and the doctor is able to see the status of the internal organs. At our hospital, endoscopy procedures are performed using advanced equipment with very high resolution (zoom, HDTV, narrowed spectrum endoscopy procedures). Diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy procedures can be performed in an inpatient unit of Klinik Im Park or on the outpatient basis in our cozy facilities with advanced equipmen

In order to treat digestive diseases and stomach disorders (including chronic inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn's disease, Kolitis ulzerosa (ulcerative colitis), irritable bowel syndrome) more effectively, our doctors conduct consultations and receive second opinions (opinion of another doctor).
