About us Dr Thomas Brohm
Dr Thomas Brohm specialises in the health of the digestive organs and has now established a new practice in the Würzburg region where people can take advantage of the full range of state-of-the-art gastroenterology at the highest level: The Kitzingen internal medicine practice has gained a first-class reputation in a very short time.
Dr Thomas Brohm knows the region very well. He grew up here, studied here and did his doctorate at the Institute of Immunology and Virology at the University of Würzburg. And it was here that he decided early on to make the field of gastroenterology his medical hobbyhorse - that is, the diagnosis, therapy and prevention of diseases of the gastrointestinal tract and the organs associated with this tract. He settled in Kitzingen after his time as senior physician at the Juliusspital Würzburg. Incidentally, 2007 was the year he acquired the specialisation in gastroenterology.
By taking the step to establish the Internal Medicine Practice in Kitzingen, he has been able to give those living in the surrounding area peace of mind about any issue they might have concerning the gastrointestinal tract. In addition to the stomach and intestines, Dr Brohm's practice team also attend to matters relating to the oesophagus, liver, gall bladder and pancreas. The central - and holistic - approach that the highly specialised physician focuses on, however, is and remains preventive care in the area of the stomach and intestines.
Gentle procedures: Colorectal cancer screening
Bowel cancer screening is what Dr Brohm is especially advocating for: The screening programme is important from the age of fifty at the latest, and even earlier if there is a family history or medical conditions involved. "Actually, no one should die of bowel cancer," he says - because the opportunities to detect early bowel cancer are at their highest level. State-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic methods, such as a painless, gentle endoscopy in HD quality, offer gentle ways of undergoing a colonoscopy. Thus, at the Kitzingen Internal Medicine Practice, bowel cancer is detected in its preliminary stages or at the earliest possible stage. If an intestinal polyp is detected and immediately completely removed with the help of an electric snare or forceps, bowel cancer is prevented before it takes hold. By the way, Kitzingen is also the right place to be for patients with chronic inflammatory bowel diseases - as evidenced by its certification as a CED specialist practice.
Anyone who suffers from discomfort in the upper abdomen, a feeling of fullness or loss of appetite, who suddenly has to burp frequently or complains of flatulence or vomiting should also contact Dr Thomas Brohm and the Internal Medicine Practice Kitzingen directly. These are all symptoms that can occur with stomach cancer. Dr Brohm can establish whether a stomach tumour is present during a gastroscopy - a highly professional process that also uses the most modern and gentle innovation of diagnosis. And if stomach cancer is detected at an early stage, the chances of a cure are very good.
Safety around the gastrointestinal tract
In addition to a colonoscopy and gastroscopy, the internal medicine practice in Kitzingen offers many other methods of preventive care - and also numerous therapies for diseases of the stomach, intestines, oesophagus, liver, gall bladder and pancreas. For example, screening for aortic aneurysms is available. The journey to the classic wine trading town of Kitzingen, which immediately captivates people with its beautiful location on the River Main and its authentic charm, is therefore also worthwhile for anyone experiencing discomfort around the gastrointestinal tract - or for those who want the best possible safety, especially when it comes to bowel cancer screening.
