Which are the best rehab clinics for breast cancer patients? Suitable hospitals in Germany are listed here.

For breast cancer, the chance of cure are very good today. Thanks to modern therapy, complicated breast cancer diseases can be treated successfully, says Prof. Dr. Kümmel, director of the Clinic for Senology of the Essen-Mitte Clinics. However, the treatment, for example surgery or chemotherapy, is always associated with big physical and mental stress for the patient. Therefore, patients usually stay at a rehab clinic after their therapy.

These do not only offer physical measures such as sports or physiotherapy. Mental support as well as further measures such as nutrition counseling is important, too. The clinics listed below are suitable especially for patients with breast cancer or who have overcome breast cancer, as it is one of the clinic’s focus. The clinics are arranged by size.

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 2021, all of the listed clinics are specialized in the treatment of breast cancer.
  • 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 (German Pension Insurance Union, QMS Reha) or the TÜV Süd or TÜV Nord (Technical Inspection Association, system QM).
  • 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.
