A nurse caring for a patient in bed

Offer

For us today, quality of life means, among other things, being able to remain active and independent into old age. With age, however, patients have more and more accompanying illnesses such as cardiovascular problems or frailty. These complicate treatment and make interdisciplinary help essential.

Research

Thanks to research, we can constantly improve ourselves and our services, gain new scientific knowledge for the benefit of our patients and continue to develop.

Teaching

The teaching activities extend to the clinic's internal training (specialist trainees), the musculoskeletal system (students) and the training of colleagues in private practice. In future, the focus will be on the Orthogeriatric Fellowship. This will be open to specialists from various disciplines. This will create an opportunity to acquire "cross-over knowledge".
