About the department

The department of internal medicine, cancer and post-COVID-19 rehabilitation at Rehabilitation Clinic Jagerwinkel Bad Wiessee carries all diagnostic and therapeutic measures of cardiac and internal medicine. According to Focus Magazine, the department ranks among the best medical facilities specialising in cardiac rehabilitation in Germany. Thanks to different disciplines' multimodal and interdisciplinary cooperation, the department can make precise diagnoses and find a therapy that optimally supports the healing process. All equipment supports high-precision diagnostics and enables the use of the most modern, highly effective therapy procedures. Furthermore, doctors pay special attention to preventive diagnostics and examinations to detect the development of malignant tumours in time.

The particular focus is on cardiological rehabilitation and prevention. The main goal is to restore cardiac and pulmonary function and guide people to a healthy lifestyle. In addition, doctors, therapists and nurses create the best possible conditions for patients with thyroid disorders, liver diseases, immune system weaknesses and other pathological conditions. The specialists also have developed comprehensive rehabilitation programs for patients who have coronavirus infections.
