I can't think of a better place for our daughter's birth. With the team at Klinik Im Park, I felt that I was in the best hands at all times. In the newly renovated rooms in the maternity ward, you feel like you are in a 5-star hotel. An all-round perfect start for our daughter and her parents ;-)

    Gastroenterology is the field of medicine focused on the normal function and diseases of the digestive system or the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, including the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, pancreas, gallbladder, bile ducts, liver, as well as colon and rectum. Doctors who specialize in gastroenterology are called gastroenterologists. They are trained to diagnose and treat conditions of the digestive system. Some of the conditions that these specialists can treat include:

    • Ulcers
    • Acid reflux
    • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
    • Polyps or growth that can occur in the large intestine (colon)
    • Hepatitis C
    • Jaundice (yellowing of the skin)
    • Bloody stool
    • Hemorrhoids
    • Colon and bowel cancer
    • Pancreatic cancer
    • Esophageal cancer
    • Gastric cancer
    • Colitis
    • Pancreatitis 

    While gastroenterologists can treat diseases of the digestive system, they do not perform surgery. If surgery is required they will work with or refer patients to a gastrointestinal surgeon. The following are a range of nonsurgical procedures that gastroenterologists perform:

    • Colonoscopy to detect colon polyps and colon cancer
    • Endoscopic ultrasound to examine the upper and lower GI tract
    • Sigmoidoscopy to assess blood loss or pain in the bowel
    • Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography to identify tumors, gallstones, or scar tissue in the bile duct
    • Capsule endoscopy to examine the small intestine
    • Liver biopsy to examine fibrosis and inflammation
    • Polypectomy to remove a polyp.

    How Long Should I Stay in Switzerland?

    The type of procedure that you undergo determines your length of stay in Switzerland. Most procedures are performed on an outpatient basis, meaning you can leave the hospital or clinic on the same day. However, you generally need to stay in Switzerland for around a week for follow up appointments and to let your body recover before you can travel. If you undergo a diagnostic procedure, your doctor will discuss the results and create a treatment plan during the follow-up appointment.

    What's the Expected Recovery Time?

    Recovery time for gastroenterology procedures range from a day to 2 weeks, or sometimes longer, depending on the type of procedure. During the recovery period, it is important to avoid any strenuous activities. Your gastroenterologist will let you know the specific time you can resume your normal activities, go back to work, and perform vigorous exercises.

    What Aftercare is Required?

    It is crucial that you follow all of the instructions closely, to prevent the problem from getting worse or from reoccurring, you may need to make some dietary and lifestyle changes. You may also need to attend follow-up checkups to monitor your condition. You can have the checkups at home with your local doctor, or with your gastroenterologist in Switzerland.

    What's the Success Rate?

    Advances in gastroenterology have increased the safety and success rate of treatments. The diagnostic procedures offer high accuracy in finding problems within the gastrointestinal tract, and the treatments are found to be highly successful to treat conditions in the digestive system. For example, a colonoscopy now has a 94% success rate in capturing all colorectal cancer. Still, there are some risks to the procedures that you will need to be aware of, such as a tear in the intestine’s lining, excessive bleeding, adverse reaction to the equipment or medication used during the procedure, organ perforation, infection, and incomplete removal (for removal of polyps).

    Are there Alternatives?

    In most cases, there is no alternative to seeing a gastroenterologist if you experience problems in your digestive system and it is found to be caused by something else that is outside the gastroenterologists’ scope of practice, they will refer you to the relevant specialist.

    Whilst the information presented here has been accurately sourced and verified by a medical professional for its accuracy, it is still advised to consult with your doctor before pursuing a medical treatment at one of the listed medical providers
