Experts in university geriatric medicine
At this clinic location, geriatric, multimorbid patients with acute internal, neurological and orthopedic diseases are treated in the sense of early geriatric rehabilitation by an interdisciplinary team of doctors, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, geriatric trained nursing staff and social workers. Frequent diagnoses of our patients are apoplexy, hip endoprosthesis after femoral neck fracture, decompensated heart failure and pneumonia. The focus of our rehabilitation is the reintegration of elderly patients after illness into their familiar environment, taking into account individual resources such as physical and psychological skills. We have many years of expertise in the treatment of geriatric patients.
