About the department

The department of internal medicine (gastroenterology, hepatology, infectology) at Helios Hospital Berlin-Buch is a modern world-class medical facility. Gastroenterologists specialize in examining and treating acute and chronic diseases of the oesophagus, stomach, small and large intestine, and pancreas using the latest methods. The station has 24 beds with modern sanitary facilities, radio, and television. Local physicians treat 1,200 patients a year at the department. In 12 modern rooms, the patients receive medical and nursing care around the clock. The department is equipped with devices based on the latest technologies, offering such procedures as Confocal Laser Endoscopy (CLE) and minimally invasive procedures (e.g. RFA, TACE, SIRT). The German Diabetes Society recognized it as a "clinic suitable for diabetics". 

The particular focus is the care of patients with chronic inflammatory bowel disease and patients with tumour diseases of the abdominal organs. Treatment and diagnostic spectrums include gastroenterological, hepatological diseases, liver cancer, and diabetes. Diagnostic possibilities include functional and endoscopic procedures. Cancer treatment includes surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and other evidence-based modalities.
