Cardiology is the science of the heart and therefore concerned with the structure, functioning and diseases of the heart as well as their possible treatments.
Our practice offers all kinds of profound cardiologic diagnostics and therapy. In order to prevent or diagnose heart diseases, we are able to use methods such as echocardiography (sonography of the heart), electrocardiography (ECG), exercise-ECG (ergometry), long-term-ECG and long-term measuring of the blood pressure.
We attend to patients with various cardiac irregularities or coronary circulation problems and offer the necessary support after a cardiac infarction. We develop individual therapeutic plans and monitor the success of our therapy.
Gastro-Enterology is the science of the digestive organs including the gastro-intestinal tract, the liver, the gallbladder and the pancreas. The most common complaints of our patients are abdominal pain, heartburn, diarrhoea, flatulence and bleeding of the gastro-intestinal tract.
Medical checkups designed to prevent cancer of the stomach or intestinal tract are also a very important part of our work.
Apart from patients with acute problems and illnesses, we also deal with patients suffering from chronic intestinal diseases (Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis) and chronic liver diseases. We plan the necessary diagnostics in close cooperation with the patient and together we develop a modern concept of therapy.
Especially for patients with chronic diseases it is of the highest importance to be in the continuous care of an experienced gastro-enterologist. Only the close cooperation of doctor and patient will enable the physician to make the right therapeutic decisions in difficult phases of the disease or in the case of acute episodes and sudden complications.
Pulmonology is concerned with the diseases of the lung.
In our practice, we attend to patients suffering from acute or chronic lung diseases. Various lung function tests (spirometry) and blood gas analyses are used to identify these diseases and help us to control the success of the therapeutic measures taken during the course of the disease.
Sleep Apnoea Syndrome
In our practice, we also offer diagnostic procedures to help identify sleep apnoea. The sleep apnoea syndrome consists of a number of symptoms that are normally caused through the cessation of breathing during sleep. It is mainly characterized by strong sleepiness during daytime or even the compulsion to fall asleep during the day. Apart from this, patients may also suffer from a number of other symptoms or secondary diseases.
Allergiology is concerned with the origin, symptoms, development and treatment of allergic reactions.
Allergiology is closely connected to other medical disciplines, e. g. diseases of the ear, nose and throat as well as dermatology. In these areas, we can resort to a close cooperation with very experienced specialists.
When it comes to allergies, the gastro-intestinal tract plays an important role, especially in distinguishing between allergic reactions and other diseases or intolerance phenomena.
Health Checkup, Prophylaxis
A health checkup provides us with a complete picture of the current physical condition and fitness of the patient.
Prophylaxis also means early identification of risk factors or malignancy, which can help to prevent advanced and often incurable stages of a disease.
Dependent on your individual risk factors, we will recommend therapeutic measures or further diagnostic measures.
In our practice we offer all diagnostic means to provide you with a complete aftercare program after a tumour operation or chemotherapy.
Preparation for Surgery
Before a patient can undergo an operation, it is necessary to make sure that the patient is not suffering from any other organic diseases. The extent of these post-operative diagnostics depends on the type of operation and the age of the patient. If all necessary tests can take place before admission to the hospital, the patient's stay in the hospital will be considerably shorter.
We will be pleased to inform you about all possible vaccinations and to help you make a sensible choice for your personal needs.
In advance of a journey abroad, we can check and complete your vaccination status according to the presently recommended standard. We will provide information on malaria prevention and other necessary protective measures.
We will advise you on nutrition problems resulting from certain diseases or intolerances.
We will provide you with your individually designed program to reduce your weight.
e. g. diagnosis of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS).
Various factors may help to slow down the process of aging: healthy nutrition and physical activity, a sensible lifestyle, avoidance of negative stress situations, administration of vitamins (e. g. vitamin E) and trace elements (e. g. selenium), substitution of hormones.
Diagnosis of bone structure and drug therapy.
We use approved methods of naturopathy.
We provide medical support if you want to give up smoking.
