The German Federal Health Agency (BKA) has said the new surgery for GERD, a chronic, aggressive form of colitis, is being carried out by the private clinic Giedemann-Gladbach.
The procedure is not recommended for the general population.
The new treatment is being used on patients with GERD who do not have a high risk of complications, but have the disease that can be triggered by certain medications or in certain circumstances.GERD affects more than one in ten people, making it the leading cause of coliforms in the EU.
It is a common form of inflammatory bowel disease.
A German study found that the average age of those with GERDs was 60, with the majority of people having been diagnosed between the ages of 15 and 24.
The latest findings have been welcomed by the German health service.
The Giedimann-Gaetan-Granich surgery is described as the “first of its kind” in the country.
It was carried out at a hospital in the city of Darmstadt.
In a statement, the BKA said it would “continue to work closely with the private healthcare provider Giedemerann-Geldemann” and would provide a detailed response to media requests within the coming weeks.
The statement added that the new treatment was being conducted “under the supervision of the expert board of specialists” and that patients will be referred to other specialists.
The treatment is a non-invasive, non-toxic procedure, which does not involve any invasive surgery.
The surgery is “extremely safe and effective for patients who have been diagnosed with GERDS”, the statement said.
Giedemaw-Gaethans is a surgery that involves two operations.
The first, the laparoscopic surgery, involves the removal of the colon.
The second, the abdominal surgery, is done under general anaesthesia.
The hospital in Darmstad has operated on about 700 patients since March of this year.
The operation costs between €1,500 and €3,500.
