About the department

The patients' health is in the safe hands of an interdisciplinary team of experienced specialists consisting of internists, cardiologists, rehabilitation therapists, nutritionists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, psychologists and other doctors. In addition, a psychologist works with the patient during the rehabilitation. The task of the psychologist is to overcome high-functioning anxiety, stress and depressive disorders in patients who have suffered severe pathologies and heart surgery. The department is headed by Dr. med. Herbert Kesting.
The main goal of the specialists of the medical facility is to restore good health after suffering cardiac pathologies or other diseases, improve physical endurance, restore work capacity and prevent recurrence of the disease. Both vast clinical experience of the department's doctors and access to all modern rehabilitation methods allow the specialists to achieve excellent results and give patients a chance for a full life.
The department's medical team gives preference to an individual approach to each clinical situation. From the very first visit, the patient feels attention and understanding from doctors and nursing staff. During the initial consultation, the attending physician studies the patient's medical history and listens to his complaints, after which appoints him the required diagnostic tests to assess his current health status and determine the rehabilitation potential. Based on the clinical data obtained, the specialists develop an optimal rehabilitation program with particular goals that the patient will achieve during the course of treatment. The doctors also pay great attention to the favorable psychological climate in the department, so that the patient does not experience any discomfort or worries, but can fully focus on his rehabilitation.
The department's internists and rehabilitologists have been restoring the health of patients who have undergone complicated heart surgery, serious cardiovascular diseases and other internal diseases for many years.
