The special strength of the University Hospital Düsseldorf lies in the interdisciplinary treatment of patients and the close integration of clinical operations and research. Modern, safe and accurate methods of diagnostics and therapy help in the fight against many diseases and their consequences.
More than 60,000 patients annually receive inpatient care at the University Hospital Düsseldorf. In addition, every year about 300,000 patients are treated on an outpatient basis. Düsseldorf University Hospital is the largest hospital in North Rhine-Westphalia and one of the largest institutions in Europe. It consists of 34 separate clinics, as many research institutes, which, together with 6,000 of their employees, provide the maximum amount of modern assistance in four dozen areas.
As a result of the research work at the clinic, new methods and treatment regimens appear on a regular basis, which the clinic doctors immediately use in practice, helping patients in cases in which the rest of the doctors are powerless.
Another secret of successful treatment in the clinic is the academic training of their own doctors, whose level of knowledge and skills significantly exceeds the level of experienced doctors in other countries.
