Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD)

The very different clinical courses of patients with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis require a high degree of professional competence and empathy. Thanks to extensive experience with conventional treatment strategies and modern biological therapies, patients can benefit from optimized treatments. In addition, treatments are possible within the framework of clinical studies.

Help for chronic inflammatory bowel diseases

Due to the close cooperation with the clinics for rheumatology, surgery, dermatology, radiology and nutritional medicine, patients receive comprehensive interdisciplinary care.

In addition to the usual endoscopic examination procedures of the intestine with high-resolution video endoscopes, the following are also available for special questions

  • chromoendoscopy (early detection of cancer),
  • capsule endoscopy (small intestine diagnostics),
  • magnetic resonance imaging of the intestine (fistula imaging, imaging of the small intestine),
  • ultrasound of the intestine and
  • bone densitometry

are available.
