Gastroenterologie und Hepatologie

All our clinical efforts focus on the human being! We strive to provide you with comprehensive individual counseling and guidance and constantly work hard to advance our diagnostic, therapeutic and nursing standards.

The subspecialty gastroenterology and hepatology is very dynamic and broad, encompassing rapidly evolving diagnostics and therapy for all diseases of the digestive tract. These diseases include common infectious diseases, inflammatory diseases of the digestive tract and its glands as well as tumors, functional disorders and metabolic diseases. Highly qualified specialists and diagnostic and treatment teams that provide sound basic care are available in all of these different areas. Thanks to the high internationality of our treatment team, we have access to the most state-of-the-art therapeutic strategies in our discipline.

We have our own specialized bed ward and modern endoscopy that we use to treat our patients. In addition, special outpatient clinics address chronic inflammatory bowel diseases, liver diseases, diseases of the pancreas and bile ducts, esophageal diseases, rare metabolic diseases, hereditary tumor syndromes that affect the gastrointestinal tract and neuroendocrine tumors.

The variety and complexity of diseases of the digestive tract require great interdisciplinarity with other medical disciplines. We are constantly working hard to drive forward this collaboration with our related subspecialties in order to improve your care! Networked with a large number of institutes and divisions at University Hospital Graz, the team of the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology provides you with state-of-the-art diagnostics and therapy befitting a tertiary university healthcare center.

The uniqueness and the added value of our division are the result of the symbiosis between patient care, research and education. The division is jointly operated by the Medical University of Graz and the Styrian Hospital Association (KAGes). This interdisciplinary cooperation between both providers at the University Hospital Graz site is also reflected on our website. More information on patient care can be found at the University Hospital Graz website.
