Which clinics in Germany are specialized in the treatment of intestinal diseases? In this article, some excellent hospitals with high treatment quality are listed.

Intestinal diseases can be acute or chronic. Acute intestinal diseases which are caused by viruses, bacteria or a food intolerance can show temporary symptoms such as nausea, stomach aches or diarrhea. Examples for chronic intestinal diseases are the irritable bowel syndrome or chronic inflammatory diseases like Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis. Possible symptoms are stomach aches, diarrhea or weight loss.

For a successful treatment, the choice of the hospital is important because not all hospitals in Germany are specialized in the treatment of intestinal diseases. Besides good hygiene and high quality of treatment, there is medical staff in the listed clinics that has extensive experience with patients suffering from intestinal diseases.

This is how the clinic list was created

  • Many patients! At the clinics presented above, doctors have great experience with intestinal diseases, because only hospitals that treat diverticulosis (ICD K57), the most frequent intestinal disease, 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.
  • 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.
