Welcome to the Department for Interdisciplinary Endoscopy

The Department for Interdisciplinary Endoscopy forms a bridge between gastroenterology and surgery. We strive to provide optimal standards of care, whether through multidisciplinary professional cooperation or through the development of new techniques. The findings from the departments’s own scientific tests, combined with the introduction of new methods, add to our arsenal of effective diagnostic and therapeutic tools. Ultimately they benefit patients by making treatment more comfortable and effective. Our close collaboration with referring physicians and other Medical Centers underlines the lead position played by Hamburg in endoscopy and medical technology. We are eager to follow in the pioneering footsteps of our former director Prof. Nib Soehendra, who made important international breakthroughs in this field of medicine. Our department offers an impressive array of tried and tested, as well as innovative techniques in endoscopy.
