Which clinics are suitable for the treatment of patients after heart surgery? Several excellent rehab clinics are listed here.

Examples of cardiovascular diseases are coronary heart disease, heart attack or mitral valve stenosis. They rank amongst the most frequent diseases in Germany. However, they can be treated very well, because doctors have great expertise and the clinics are well-equipped. Typical interventions such as a bypass operation are carried out about 70,000 times per year in Germany. After such a major surgery, the patient stays in the hospital for several weeks, followed by a rehabilitation program.

All of the rehab clinics listed below are specialized in the treatment of patients suffering from a cardiovascular disease. Therefore, they offer measures that aim at recovering the patient’s physical performance. Besides physiotherapy and health training, mental support and further measures such as nutrition counseling are offered as well.

This is how the rehab clinic list was created

  • Focus Award! Every year, the big German weekly magazine DER FOCUS honors the best rehab clinics. According to the rehab clinic list 2020, all of the listed clinics are specialized in the treatment of cardiovascular diseases.
  • Certificates! In-patient rehab clinics are obliged to obtain certification. All of the clinics listed above hold the certificate of an official organization, for example the Deutsche Rentenversicherung Bund (QMS Reha, German Pension Insurance Union) or the TÜV Süd or TÜV Nord (system QM, Technical Inspection Association).
  • Comprehensive Help! Especially for rehabilitation, it is important that experts from different areas take care of the patient, for example occupational therapists, physiotherapists and sports therapists. All of the clinics listed above have interdisciplinary teams with experts from at least five specialist areas.
  • Accompanying Person! For many people, it is important to have a close relative or friend with them after a serious surgery. Therefore, only rehab clinics which allow patients to bring an accompanying person are listed.
