Importantly, both facilities are part of the Interdisciplinary Colon Center and the Interdisciplinary Endoscopy Center.

The team at the Department of Gastroenterology, Infectiology and Rheumatology focuses on the treatment of diseases of the liver, bile ducts and pancreas, on infections and metabolic diseases and on rheumatic diseases.

The Medical Department, Division of Hepatology and Gastroenterology which is part of the Interdisciplinary Metabolism Center focuses on diseases of the hypophysis, thyroid gland, esophagus, gastrointestinal tract and the gonads.

As facilities of Charité Universitätsmedizin both departments are intensively involved in research, development and teaching.

Interdisciplinary Colon Center

The center focuses on the early detection, treatment and follow-up of colorectal carcinoma. The concentration on these tasks in one single center increases the interdisciplinary cooperation of all relevant teams and the definition of the therapy path in diagnosis and therapy in the context of interdisciplinary tumor boards.

Interdisciplinary Endoscopy Center

This division is specialized in the endoscopy diagnosis and therapy of the esophagus, stomach and duodenum (esophageal, gastrointestinal and duodenal endoscopy), examination of the colon (coloscopy) and the rectum (rectoscopy), as well as the endoscopic assessment and treatment of the bile ducts and the pancreas (ERCP). Endosonography combines endoscopy and ultrasound and allows the visualization of changes in the upper and lower gastrointestinal tract.
