Range of services

Along with the personal consultation, modern diagnostics are indispensable for making treatment at a high level of quality possible. Medicine and technology work together to provide a gentle and effective treatment. In order to better integrate the patient into the decision-making process, the patient as a rule has his own “patient monitor” in the surgery. With us, you are, on request, “live on air.”

Here is some information about our range of services:
