Rehabilitation

In Rehabilitation, Dr Christiane Rörig and her team provide cutting-edge medicine and first-class therapy combined with the greatest comfort. Patients who have had an accident, suffer from acute or chronic diseases of the musculoskeletal system or have undergone surgery really appreciate the expert personal care. In addition to continuing the nursing and therapeutic measures following a surgical procedure, the return to familiar surroundings is of prime importance.
