About us

At the Darmklinik Exter, proctologic disorders – anal and rectal disorders – gastroenterological diseases which affect the gastrointestinal tract as well as urologic diseases are treated. The causes of these diseases have to be eliminated in order to prevent relapses and to be free of complaints for a prolonged period of time. In our coloproctologic, urological and gastroenterological department, such diseases are treated on the basis of conventional medicine. Most of the time, semi-inpatient treatments for two or three days are successful. In rare cases, surgery is necessary which can also be performed on a semi-inpatient basis. A requirement for each therapy is a certain diagnosis. A therapy concept based on the diagnosis is determined by conventional medicine and, if needed, can be complemented by holistic treatment concepts of natural medicine.
