Prof. Stefan Zeuzem has been working as a medical doctor with a high reputation for over three decades. As a specialist in internal medicine with a focus on gastroenterology and hepatology as well as endocrinology and diabetology, he has also positioned himself as a pioneer in medical practice and research on an international level. Prof. Zeuzem's public esteem is also demonstrated by numerous scientific awards and his appointment to the Scientific Commission of the German Federal and State Science Council by former German Federal President Horst Köhler in 2010. Prof. Zeuzem has also repeatedly been able to demonstrate professional perspectives on the board of the German Liver Foundation.
The experienced gastroenterologist and endocrinologist can look back on several medical management positions and scientific teaching activities as a professor in his career. After his habilitation in internal medicine at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe University in Frankfurt in 1992, Prof. Zeuzem spent ten years as Senior Consultant for Gastroenterology and Hepatology at the University Hospital Frankfurt am Main. In 2002, Prof. Zeuzem changed his place of work and accepted the appointment to the Chair of Internal Medicine at Saarland University Hospital, where he also headed the Medical Clinic II as Director.
Prof. Zeuzem was reappointed to the Chair of Internal Medicine at the Goethe University Hospital in Frankfurt in 2007. Since then, he has been heading the Medical Clinic 1 of the Johann Wolfgang Goethe University Hospital in Frankfurt am Main with outstanding expertise and always with his patients in mind. He is also the Managing Director of the Center for Internal Medicine. The Medical Clinic 1 is the specialty clinic for gastroenterology and hepatology, pneumology and allergology, endocrinology and diabetology, and nutritional medicine.
In addition to this comprehensive range of specialist medical care, the clinic offers various specialized outpatient clinics for complex diseases, such as acute and chronic liver diseases and tumor diseases of the internal organs. Patients with cancers of the liver, bile, pancreas or gastrointestinal tract will find treatment concepts tailored to their individual needs and comprehensive diagnostic care at the latest standard of medicine. The clinic's private outpatient clinic, which allows patients to have personal contact with Prof. Zeuzem for consultation, diagnosis and therapy, deserves special mention.
Prof. Zeuzem is an expert in the field of hepatology, including liver transplantation medicine, gastroenterology and gastrointestinal oncology. Through the clinic's outpatient clinic, patients have access to new innovative drugs and therapeutic concepts. The interdisciplinary care of diabetes patients and nutritional consultations round off the medical spectrum of the Medical Clinic 1. Chronically ill patients in particular require reliable and regular medical advice and care. Thus, the Medical Clinic 1, under the direction of Prof. Zeuzem, is a respected address for diseases of the liver, bile ducts, pancreas, chronic inflammatory intestinal diseases, all tumor diseases of the gastrointestinal tract and metabolic and hormonal disorders, combining diagnostics and therapy under one roof.
