We provide our medical services in an inpatient or part-inpatient setting and within the framework of special surgery hours, depending on the type of condition and the individual requirements. In addition, we cooperate closely with our outpatient colleagues and consultants, as well as with other partners, within the framework of special contracts (integrated care).

Patients benefit from the close collaboration with our partners inside and outside the clinic. Together we ensure an individually aligned treatment.

We diagnose and treat patients who have suffered or are suspected of having suffered a heart attack. To do this, we use state-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic methods.

Conservative/non-invasive cardiology

  • Transthoracic/transoesophageal echocardiography
  • Stress echocardiography
  • Tilt table tests with/without provocation
  • Cardioversion
  • Cardiological monitoring
  • Ergometry
  • ECG and long-term ECG
  • Ultrasound


  • Pacemaker implants and aftercare
  • Implantable cardioverter/defibrillators (ICD)/event recorders

Left heart catheterisation

The chances of surviving a heart attack are extremely good thanks to progress in modern medicine. But every second nevertheless counts in an emergency. Our doctors use a modern angiography system with left heart catheterisation function for the treatment of acute heart attacks. Our doctors acquired the technical expertise to perform left heart catheterisation treatment in the recent years through their strong collaboration with the heart specialists at University Hospital Dresden.

  • Invasive electrophysiological examinations of the heart and ablation
  • Coronary angiography/PTCA/stent
  • Right heart catheterisation at rest/under stress

In nephrology, we look after the diagnosis and treatment of kidney diseases. To do this, we conduct laboratory analyses of blood and urine, apply special ultrasound methods and perform renal biopsy were necessary. The tissue specimens are examined without delay at the clinic's Institute for Pathology. We treat patients suffering from acute kidney failure in the Intensive Care Unit. Moreover, we cooperate closely with the KfH Kidney Centre where treatments like dialysis are necessary.

  • Diagnosis and treatment of acute or chronic disorders of the renal functions, as well as their secondary and follow-on conditions (autoimmune diseases, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, anaemia, metabolic disorders of the bones), including implementation of renal function tests and kidney biopsy, as well as treatment with immunosuppressants
  • Performance of blood purification methods in cases of acute or chronic kidney failure, as well as for detoxification (haemodialysis, filtration, diafiltration, peritoneal dialysis)
  • Preparation and training of patients in peritoneal dialysis
  • Implementation of plasmapheresis and immunadsorption for selected pathologies
  • Close technical and personnel collaboration with the KfH Kidney Centre at Städtisches Clinic for inpatient and outpatient dialysis (including holiday dialysis), as well as surgery hours for kidney diseases, kidney transport aftercare and peritoneal dialysis

We diagnose and treat the entire spectrum of diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, the bile tract, the pancreas and liver.

  • Transit time determination
  • Breathing tests (H2 breathing test, C13 breathing test)
  • Manometry (oesophageal manometry, anal manometry)
  • Long-term ph-metry

This department is specialised in all diseases of the airways. Among the main focus areas is the provision of support to patients with obstructive pulmonary diseases as well as tumour-related diseases of the lungs. Within this framework, we cooperate closely with Fachkrankenhaus Coswig as part of the Competency Network for Pulmonary Diseases. As a certified competence centre for thorax surgery and a certified lung cancer centre, Coswig is one of Germany's pre-eminent establishments in the treatment of pulmonary diseases.

  • Thoracic drainage
  • Pleurodesis
  • Allergy diagnostics
  • Body plethysmography / CO diffusion / spirometry
  • Spiroergometry
  • Right-heart catheter
  • Sleep apnoea screening
  • Home respiration
  • EOT
  • Oxygen concentrator care
  • Bronchoscopy
  • Thorax surgery (in cooperation with Fachkrankenhaus Coswig)

Our team has long-standing experience in the field of diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy:

  • Oesophagogastroduodenoscopy
  • Rectosigmoid/colonoscopy
  • Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography
  • Percutaneous transhepatic cholangiography, -scopy
  • Endosonography of the upper and lower digestive tract
  • Endoscopic polypectomy and mucosectomy
  • Endoscopic tumour treatment (APC, stenting)
  • Bronchoscopy and thoracoscopy

We have the following ultrasound treatment methods at our disposal

B-mode image ultrasound

  • Ultrasound (including high-resolution ultrasound of the gastrointestinal tract)
  • Lymph gland
  • Lymph nodes
  • Thorax and pleura

Doppler ultrasound of the

  • Extracranial arteries supplying the brain
  • Peripheral veins
  • Peripheral arteries with Doppler pressure measurement at rest and during stress

Duplex ultrasound of the

  • Extracranial arteries supplying the brain
  • Peripheral veins and arteries
  • Arteries and veins of the trunk (e.g. portal vein assessment, renal artery stenosis, assessment of the mesenteric arteries and veins)

Interventional ultrasound

  • Ultrasound-controlled puncture and drainage (liver, kidneys, obscure mass, lymph nodes, cysts, abscesses, ascitis)

Contrast agent ultrasound

  • Especially to clarify focal findings in the liver
