About University Hospital Dusseldorf

Düsseldorf University Hospital is a maximum-care hospital, and as such, at Düsseldorf University, or UKD, are a byword for international top-quality service in all areas of medical care. One particular strongpoint is the integration of clinical service and research – a necessity when it comes to patient care with the best possible standards that medical science has to offer. The close integration between patient care, research and medical training in one place presents decisive advantages for our patients – you will not only benefit from modern, high-performance equipment in the individual clinics and speciality departments, but also from the latest results from medical research, right from the source.

Apart from that, our many individual clinics work together in a close network, giving you the benefit of a united source of knowledge and experience from all medical disciplines. This is how we lay the groundwork for effective treatment in the future to benefit patients with diseases that cannot currently be cured, at best relieved. We work closely with partner universities based inside and outside Germany, helping us gain new knowledge and improve our understanding of diseases, leading to new, innovative methods in diagnostics and therapy.
