The complete spectrum of rheumatological disorders are treated either stationary, in a hospital setting, or on an ambulatory basis.


Medication adjustment and immunosuppressive therapy require, especially at first, a tightly woven clinical and chemical/laboratorial surveillance. Interdisciplinary services for patient education, physical, ergo-, art and music therapies, are solid components in the ambulatory and stationary therapy concepts.


The model for integrated care in rheumatology ensures continuity between the ambulatory, stationary and rehabilitative treatment of the patient. Innovative therapy assessment is surveyed by the Center for Rheumatic Research.
