Meet the Doctor
I am a clinical gastroenterologist and have the privilege of treating patients with all kinds of GI disorders. And yes, I am passionate about health benefits of food. I do care about your gut feeling.
Your and my aims are similar. Up-to-date and personalized treatment provided in an efficient and pleasant manner. I provide these services in the Gastroenterology Group Practice in Bern, Switzerland.
Special clincial expertise
Besides the routine GI clinics and cancer screening, my areas of special expertise are:
Effects of food (nutrition): food intolerances as well as health-boosting effects of food ingredients.
Functional gastrointestinal disorders, think irritable bowel and related syndromes.
Pelvic floor disorders, such as incontinence, constipation and pain syndromes..
Oesophageal disorders, including reflux, swallowing disorders, dental erosions, voice disorders & chronic cough.
Food: the good, the bad and the ugly
Eating should be enjoyable and healthy. Sadly, many individuals have negative reactions to food. On the other hand, food contains many nutrients with highly benefical effects. Both aspects are of special relevance to my practice, consulting and start-ups.
To aid people with negative reactions to food I have created an extensive platform at www.foodintolerances.org to assist in the recognition of intolerances and their treatment. The identification of food intolerances is an important aspect in the treatment of pain, changes in bowel habits, bloating and other symptoms associated with gastrointestinal disorders.
