Internal medicine

In the field of internal medicine, patients benefit from state-of-the-art, non-aggressive methods of treatment. Highly flexible, miniaturised endoscopes can now be gently manoeuvred around the stomach and intestines without causing pain, enabling doctors to see inside the human body. Interventional procedures that do not involve surgery or a direct incision into the body also minimise the risks for patients with diabetes, heart conditions or obesity.
