Welcome to the Medical Clinic II

Dear visitors,

Welcome to the homepage of the Medical Clinic II of the Municipal Clinic of Braunschweig.

The main focus of our clinic is the diagnostics and therapy of heart diseases, lung and respiratory diseases, vascular diseases and intensive care medicine. The Medical Clinic II, together with the Department of Cardiac, Thoracic and Vascular Surgery, is the cardiological center of the Municipal Clinic of Braunschweig.

In cooperation with the other medical clinics, we also offer the full spectrum of internal medicine diagnostics and therapy.

The Medical Clinic II has 149 beds, including 17 intensive care and ventilation beds on a large conservative intensive care unit, as well as a 14 beds "Intermediate-Care" station for critically ill patients. Each year more than 7000 patients are hospitalized in our clinic. In addition to the chief physician, the physician team consists of 6 senior physicians and 28 assistant doctors.

The cardiological area is equipped with all modern installations. Approximately 4000 examinations, more than 1100 of which are coronary interventions, are carried out each year in the two cardiac catheter labs. Further diagnostic and therapeutic possibilities of our clinic are presented on the following pages.

The Medical Clinic II is part of the Center of Internal Medicine. Our common goal is the optimal therapy of our patients, the well-structured training of our medical staff and the committed training of our students.

Regardless of the professional commitment, we strive for a trusting cooperation with you. In the hope to arouse your interest, I invite you to browse our homepage.

For further questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
