Which German clinics are most suitable for the treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease? 12 hospitals with excellent treatment quality are presented in the following article.
Gastroesophageal reflux disease is the abnormal increase in stomach content rising up into the esophagus, leading to heartburn and pain behind the breast bone. The cause is usually the slackening of the lower esophageal sphincter, whereby the esophagus is not sealed sufficiently anymore. Risk factors include diet, stress and alcohol consumption. The reflux disease can be treated with medication or surgery.
For successful treatment, the choice of the hospital is important, because not all hospitals in Germany are specialized in the treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease. Besides good hygiene and high treatment quality, the doctors in the listed hospitals have great experience in the treatment of a reflux disease.

This is how the clinic list was created
- Many patients! At the clinics presented above, doctors have great experience with a gastroesophageal reflux disease (ICD K21), because only hospitals that perform this intervention on an above-average basis have been taken into consideration. Hospitals are obliged to inform about their medical treatment in quality reports and to provide this information to the Federal Joint Committee.
- High Level of Patient Satisfaction! The level of patient satisfaction of the clinics in the list is at least at 80 percent. This is the result of a survey by the German health insurance companies AOK and BARMER in cooperation with the “Weisse Liste”. Every year, almost half a million of insured people are being questioned about their hospital stay. This is the biggest patient survey in Europe.
- Good Hygiene! Many patients suffer from an infection during their hospital stay, which is why good hospital hygiene is important. All the clinics attach above-average value to patient safety. At least 45 out of 55 measures have been taken in order to guarantee optimal hygiene before, during and after surgery.
This is just a small selection of German clinics. Of course, many other hospitals also offer a high quality of treatment.
