Gastroenterology Department

The Department of Gastroenterology at the German Medical Institute (GMI) offers expert medical services, which cover a wide range of digestive diseases.

Part of our services focus on diagnosing and treating oncology patients, mainly patients with tumors in their digestive system.

Our services include:

•   Gastroscopy (endoscopy of the esophagus, stomach, and duodenum) with or without collecting biopsies.

•   Colonoscopy (endoscopy of the colon and the terminal ileum) with or without taking biopsies.

•   Polypectomy/EMR or removal of other benign or malignant tumors of the upper and lower digestive tract.

•   Endoscopic hemostasis (treatment of digestive bleeding)

•   Cauterization of angiodysplasias of the digestive tract using Argon-plasma.

•   Drainage of esophageal varicose veins

•   Balloon dilatations of esophageal, gastric, duodenal, ileal, and colonic strictures.

•   Placement of bare metal stents under fluoroscopy in esophageal strictures

•   Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) or change of PEG in patients who are unable to be fed orally.

•   Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS) for the staging of upper digestive cancers, investigation/monitoring of submucosal digestive/cystic and other pancreatic tumors, diagnosis of stones and the investigation of extrahepatic bile vessel abnormalities.

•   ERCP with sphincterotomy and the removal of stones from the bile vessels/stenting of bile vessel stenoses.

•   Small bowel capsule endoscopy (investigation of iron deficiency anemia, suspected small bowel bleeding/tumor).

We closely collaborate with other GMI departments, including Medical Oncology, Radiation Oncology, Radiology, Histopathology and Nuclear Medicine. Our department is part of the weekly GMI Gastroenterology Oncology Board, where a multidisciplinary team comes together to ensure that the treatment plan, we devise for each patient is optimal.


The Department of Gastroenterology is equipped with the latest high-definition endoscopes, allowing for the best possible imaging and therefore most accurate diagnosis, leading to better medical care.
