Neurogastroenterology

In the Devision of Neurogastroenterology we deal with functional disorders of the digestive tract caused by nerves.

You have irritable bowel, irritable stomach, functional constipation, diarrhoea, flatulence or unclear chest or abdominal pain? Our Division of Neurogastroenterology is well-known all over Germany, over 60 percent of our patients come from far away.

By means of suitable functional examinations, the functional disorders – often motility and nutritional disorders – can be recorded and treated.
