Internal Medicine at Klinik Dorfen – Gastroenterology
Klinik Dorfen takes care of patients within the full range of internal medicine. The Gastroenterology Department has a special focus on the diagnosis and treatment of cardiac, vascular and cardiovascular diseases, gastroenterological diseases (affecting the esophagus, stomach, small and large intestines, liver, gallbladder, bile ducts and pancreas) as well as metabolic disorders (diabetes mellitus and thyroid diseases).
A wide variety of examination techniques are employed - most well-known being ultrasound, endoscopy and X-ray imaging. These are performed in order to determine which disease the patient is suffering from before discussing the route of treatment and starting therapy. Cancer prevention is just as essential, especially for colon cancer by way of coloscopy.
