About the department
The Department of Gastroenterology at the Max Grundig Clinic Buehl offers the full range of high quality medical services in this medical field. The department's doctors specialize in the diagnostics and treatment of gastrointestinal diseases, including stomach, bowel, esophageal, liver, gallbladder and pancreatic diseases. The department has an excellent medical and technical base to provide the patients with top-class medical services. The department cooperates closely with the doctors from other medical disciplines, including specialists in the field of psychosomatics, thanks to which the patients benefit from comprehensive medical care. In addition, the department effectively cooperates with the renowned Colon Cancer Center Mittelbaden. The Chief Physician of the department is PD Dr. med. Alisan Kahraman.
The medical facility has an in-house Endoscopy Unit, which performs a variety of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. For example, it performs more than 1,000 colonoscopies every year. Recently, the department has successfully used the method of video capsule endoscopy for the diagnostics of the large and small intestines. This diagnostic method is especially important and effective when a patient needs non-invasive and safe screening for colorectal cancer, which is currently ranked among the most common types of cancer worldwide. The essence of the method is as follows: the patient swallows a special capsule equipped with one or two miniature cameras. When moving along the gastrointestinal tract, the device reproduces images and transmits information to the recording receiver. The doctor analyzes the data obtained and makes a conclusion. After some time, the capsule will be naturally excreted from the human body.
The department offers its patients a unique opportunity to undergo post-hospital rehabilitation after the basic treatment of gastrointestinal diseases. Such rehabilitation treatment plays a particularly important role for the patients who have undergone surgery. Post-hospital rehabilitation is most often indicated for the patients who suffer from pain after gastrectomy or removal of a part of the intestine, functional disorders and impaired wound healing after interventions on the liver, gallbladder, pancreas, poor health after chemotherapy, chronic visceral hyperalgesia, etc.
