Medical Departments

Gastroenterology, Oncology, Diabetology

This department focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and tumours of the oesophagus, the gastro-intestinal tract, the pancreas and the liver, as well as the treatment of diabetes mellitus.

We have 86 beds for in-patient treatment, as well as an oncology outpatient clinic and a diabetes day clinic. The department has an endoscopy unit, where all diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopic tests and functional tests of the gastro-intestinal tract are performed. A 24-hour endoscopy readiness enables the rapid treatment of bleeding. In our modern ultrasonic unit, we can carry out all the sonographic examinations of the digestive tract and thyroid.

There is close collaboration with other departments, in particular with General and Visceral Surgery, for example, through the Intestinal Cancer Centre.
