Dr. Michael Peters
Dr. Michael Peters specializes in the treatment and prevention of digestive and metabolic diseases.
Using state-of-the-art technical equipment such as ultrasound (GE and Toshiba) and Pentax endoscopes (HD+ video gastroscopes and coloscopes from the i10 series), as well as capsule endoscopy, the organs of the abdominal cavity are examined. These include particularly the liver and pancreas, the stomach and esophagus, as well as the small and large intestines.
As the former chief physician of the Department of Internal Medicine – Gastroenterology and Diabetology – at the Jewish Hospital Berlin, Dr. Peters has the necessary experience to select from the abundance of technical possibilities available today the one that is best suited to make a safe diagnosis or to successfully treat a disease.
He places particular emphasis on gentle examination methods, the chances and risks of which he explains in detail in a prior conversation. Therefore, the performance of gastric or colonoscopy practically always takes place under sedation by one of our experienced specialists in anesthesia in the practice clinic set up specifically for this purpose in the center of Marbella, the German Clinic Marbella. As one of the few endoscopy units on the Costa del Sol, we have an endoscope washer (SteelCo Ew1) capable of not only disinfecting flexible endoscopes but even sterilizing them. We gladly accept the slightly increased time and higher costs involved so that our patients can benefit from this increased safety. Compliance with European and German hygiene standards and guidelines is therefore guaranteed at all times.
The German group practice in the center of Marbella offers not only excellent transport connections but also the opportunity for interdisciplinary collaboration with specialists from other fields. Since 2018, you can find us at Calle Calvario 6, right next to Hotel Baviera, whose parking garage our patients can use.
