Department of general internal medicine

 

General internal medicine includes the treatment of diseases of the internal organs as well as diseases which effect the entire organ system. In general internal medicine, the key to diagnosis and treatment is the interdisciplinary networking of doctors. When specialist treatments are required, the specialist in general internal medicine refers his or her patients to specialists with the requisite advanced training.

 

The Klinik Im Park centres cover the entire range of internal medicine and work closely with one another across disciplines. In this way, Klinik Im Park guarantees that its patients will receive comprehensive care and treatment from proven specialists.

Specialities

General internal medicine

The branch of internal medicine comprises a very wide range of medical know-how about disorders that can afflict the young, adults and the elderly. This specialist knows about all the common ways of testing for disorders, such as blood and urine tests and the use of X-rays, and determines which method should be used. He is able to select the correct mode of treatment. Where necessary he looks after his chronically-ill patients over a long period of time, even at home or in a hospice or care-home. An internist can also carry out minor operations, such as the stitching of wounds under local anaesthetic.

 

Where special treatment is needed, he hands his patients over to other specialists who have the appropriate training. Internist training often represents the basis for further training in areas such as cardiology, rheumatology or gastroenterology.

Infectology

Infectology is the science and study of conditions that are caused by an invasion of the human body by pathogens such as bacteria, viruses, parasites or fungi that then multiply and cause damage to the organism.

 

The infectologist knows the various ways a human can pick up infectious diseases, and the tests that are needed to diagnose them. The patient is then prescribed the medicine that is appropriate to treat the viral, bacterial, parasitical or fungal infection.

 

The infectologist plays an important part in combating serious viral diseases such as AIDS or hepatitis. He selects the correct drug or combination of drugs for these patients, constantly monitors the outcome of the therapy and adjusts it as and when necessary.

 

The infectologist also knows how infections are disseminated in the environment. He adopts the procedures that are needed to prevent this from happening, such as immunisations or the disinfection of rooms and equipment.

Nephrology

A nephrologist is a specialist in the medical problems of the kidneys. He is an expert in the different causes of kidney disorders, their consequences and forms of treatment. He can, for example, arrange for and supervise dialysis. This treatment has to be carried out regularly if the kidneys are unable to cleanse the blood of toxins on their own.

 

The nephrologist also advises patients on points to watch out for in their daily lives, such as the dietary requirements needed to alleviate their illness.
