About the department

The Department of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Pulmonology at the University Hospital Halle (Saale) offers the full range of diagnostics and treatment in its fields of specialization. The department specializes in the diagnostic and interventional endoscopy, gastrointestinal cancer, treatment of liver, pancreatic diseases, as well as chronic inflammatory bowel diseases. In the field of pulmonology, the focus is on the diagnostics and treatment of obstructive, interstitial lung diseases, lung cancer and cystic fibrosis. The Chief Physician of the department is Prof. Dr. med. Patrick Michl.

To diagnose gastroenterologic and hepatologic diseases, the department uses the very latest endoscopic and ultrasound methods. The special focus is made on gastroenterological oncology. The department is engaged in the diagnostics and treatment of all cancers of the gastrointestinal organs, including the esophagus, stomach, pancreas, liver, biliary tract, colon and small intestine, etc. The local ablative methods (for example, radiofrequency thermoablation, percutaneous ethanol injection) and transarterial chemoembolization are used for the endoscopic diagnostics and treatment of precancerous stages (for example, polyps, intestinal adenomas), as well as the initial stages of esophageal and stomach cancer.

The treatment of oncological diseases involves the use of all modern treatment methods, such as chemotherapy, antibody therapy and modern types of targeted therapy. The participation in national and international clinical trials contributes to the achievement of optimal treatment outcomes in patients with gastrointestinal cancer.

Similarly, the department offers the best conditions for the treatment of pulmonary pathologies. For example, along with drug therapy for COPD, the department offers all methods for the treatment of pulmonary emphysema, including the implantation of endobronchial valves and coils, bronchoscopic thermal vapor ablation (BTVA). The decision on a treatment plan is made at the interdisciplinary consultations. These take place with the participation of pulmonologists/oncologists, thoracic surgeons, radiation therapists, radiologists, specialists in the field of nuclear medicine, etc.

In addition, the department is the Center of Excellence for Pulmonary Hypertension, the certified Cystic Fibrosis Center. Also, it is actively involved in sports medicine and supervises both professional athletes and amateurs of all sports.

  • Gastroenterology/hepatology
