What examinations are offered in the Central Interdisciplinary Endoscopy?
How can I be examined in the Central Interdisciplinary Endoscopy?
Endoscopic examinations and treatments are available on an inpatient and outpatient basis. Details on planning an inpatient stay can be found here. Outpatient examinations can be organized via one of our special consultation hours, our MVZ or the private consultation hours. In special cases, outpatient examinations can also be performed after prior referral. For this purpose, we recommend that your attending physician contact our department.
What do I need to bring to an outpatient appointment?
In any case, we need your health insurance card. The other documents required differ between the individual examinations:
- Colonoscopy: referral for outpatient surgery
- Gastroscopy, rectoscopy and endosonography: hospital referral with cost coverage stamp of the health insurance company
- Sonography: referral
In any case, you should know which concomitant diseases you suffer from and which medications you take regularly. You should bring important previous findings from previous examinations with you if they were not obtained in our clinic. In addition, we require current blood values (platelet count, coagulation) for some examinations.
