Prof. Robert Ehehalt is an experienced gastroenterologist and is the proprietor of the Gastroenterology Practice in Heidelberg. As a specialist in internal medicine and gastroenterology with additional qualifications in diabetology, emergency medicine and infectology, he specialises in the field of gastrointestinal medicine, which deals with all medical conditions of the oesophagus, the stomach, the small and large intestine and the pancreas and the liver.
In his work as an adjunct professor of internal medicine at the University of Heidelberg, Prof. Ehehalt passes his extensive experience on to prospective medical practitioners. The gastroenterologist also gives presentations in his specialist field before experienced colleagues. Thanks to his membership in the American Gastroenterological Association, Prof. Ehehalt also has very good international connections with his colleagues.
The Gastroenterology Practice in Heidelberg is certified by the Professional Association of Licensed Gastroenterologists, Germany as a specialist practice in the field of chronic inflammatory intestinal conditions (CED). In 2016, an independent physician comparison portal honoured Prof. Ehehalt as a recommended medical practitioner in the field of gastroenterology and CED and he is also given consistently top marks by patients for his treatment. The gastroenterology specialist is also given top marks in the area of personal consideration, for his kindness, the patients’ confidence in this physician and for the amount of time he takes for each patient individually, for example. One particular diagnosis and treatment focus of the Gastroenterology Practice in Heidelberg is endoscopy. With the aid of an endoscope, Prof. Ehehalt inserts small cameras via the oesophagus or the anus and, in this way, the entire gastrointestinal tract can be examined in real time via video transmission, with no surgical incisions at all!
This method, also known as gastroscopy or colonoscopy, is particularly important for bowel cancer screening since suspicious tissue changes become evident at an early stage. Using small instruments, Prof. Ehehalt can remove polyps immediately during the examination. As a result, further development into a malignant tumour can be prevented in many cases.
As the Head of the Study Centre for CED, Prof. Ehehalt has access to innovative medications which are not yet on the market and which benefit many patients. A further focus of the Gastroenterology Practice is nutritional medicine and counselling, which, in association with the medical treatment, often represents an additional optimisation of the treatment.
