Medical Focus Areas

The Medical Clinic II is focused on treating patients with diseases and tumors of the digestive organs, the liver and the pancreas. Furthermore, we provide comprehensive treatment for patients with diabetes mellitus together with the Medical Clinic I and are the central contact point for nutrition-related queries. Our excellently equipped endoscopy and ultrasound department enables us to conduct all established diagnostic and therapeutic interventions on the esophagus, stomach, small and large intestine as well as the liver and the pancreas.

Department for Oncology
The Department of Oncology at the Diakoniekrankenhaus was founded in February 2011. In cross-departmental terms it serves to optimize the care of oncological patients at the Diakoniekrankenhaus. All the oncological patients at the Diakoniekrankenhaus are cooperatively discussed during a weekly interdisciplinary tumor conference and an interdisciplinary treatment strategy is determined in accordance with the guidelines of professional medical societies.

Gastroenterology and Hepatology
The main focus of gastroenterology and hepatology is the diagnosis and treatment of all diseases of the esophagus, the gastro-intestinal tract, the bile ducts, the pancreas and the liver. Therefore we are equipped with the newest generation of technical endoscopic devices. At the same time, we also have the newest so-called high end ultrasound devices by means of which even the tiniest lesions can be depicted in the abdominal cavity and if so required, also diagnostically tapped.

Nutritional Medicine and Diabetology
Our diabetes and nutrition team consists of nutritionists, diabetologists, ecotrophologists and diabetes advisers. They support in and out-patients with artificial nutrition (enteral and parenteral) and conduct individual consultations for patients with gastroenterological and metabolic diseases, particularly for diabetes patients.

In-patient Alcohol Withdrawal
In our department we have, for several years, been providing patients with the possibility of in-patient alcohol withdrawal. The withdrawal is voluntary and usually lasts between one to two weeks within the context of an in-patient stay in our two gastroenterological wards. During this time we work closely together with the central institute for mental health.
