About the department

The Department of Rheumatology at the DKD HELIOS Clinic Wiesbaden offers the full range of diagnostics and treatment of rheumatic pathology. It provides an effective treatment of inflammatory and degenerative rheumatic diseases, diseases of the musculoskeletal system due to metabolic disorders, such as osteoporosis, gout, diabetes mellitus, as well as soft tissue rheumatism. Diagnostics is carried out with the use of the most modern imaging methods and laboratory tests. The Chief Physician of the department is Dr. med. Sabine Gansauge.
