Internal medicine is concerned with prevention, diagnostics, various internal medical treatments as well as rehabilitation and aftercare of complaints of the internal organs.
Prevention, so that complaints do not arise in the first place
The field of internal medicine is used by us mainly for preventive medical check-ups and diseases of the internal organs. As a preventive measure, a comprehensive picture of the current health of the internal organs can be drawn using the examination possibilities of internal medicine.
This allows the first signs of illness and any complaints arising to be recognised at an early stage. This is important in that early detection allows for rapid action to be taken, thus significantly increasing the chances of success.

Our goal: Your overall physical and mental health
Often we also carry out additional internal examinations due to other diseases or pain. These findings are combined with further examination and therapy results to form an all-embracing patient picture. Our interdisciplinary view also strengthens the holistic medical understanding.
