Infusion outpatient clinic for rheumatology
The Infusion outpatient clinic is an essential focus of the practice. An increasing number of therapies in modern internal rheumatology are infusion therapies requiring supervision, some of which last up to 6 hours. In order to spare patients a 2 to 3-day inpatient stay, our day clinic offers a comfortable, professional alternative close to home. All approved rheumatological infusion therapies including rituximab, belimumab and cyclophosphamide are carried out here. The day clinic is equipped according to the most modern medical-technical standards, while at the same time it is our special concern to create a comfortable and trusting atmosphere for our patients.
