About the department keyboard_arrow_down

The Department of Internal Medicine at the St. Anna Hospital in Herne under the lead of Prof. Dr. med. Klaus Kisters offers the entire range of diagnosis and treatment of internal diseases. Apart from patients with specific complaints, there are patients, who at the time of presentation in the Department, do not know the origin of their complaints. In such cases, the main focus is the identification of the origin of these complaints, which can be caused by diverse or several simultaneously occurring diseases.

The treatment is carried out by the respective specialist expert of the Department of Internal Medicine or – if required – by the specialist physician of another Department within the St. Anna Hospital in Herne. Every patient is treated from a holistic point of view in order to ensure the best possible treatment.

In addition to an extensive diagnosis, the Department of Internal Medicine also specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the heart, lungs, bronchial system and kidneys as well as, if required, in the intensive and palliative medical care.
