Preventive examination

The goal of a preventive examination is to detect existing illnesses at an early stage and to minimize or avoid potential health risk factors.

A key focus of preventive examinations is on cardiovascular and cancer diseases. Additionally, the latest insights from modern lifestyle medicine, including core topics such as nutrition, exercise, and smoking, are also incorporated into the preventive examination.

Let's work together on prevention - for the sake of your health!"

Resting ECG

An ECG (Electrocardiography) is used to record all the electrical activities of the heart. With the help of an ECG, various heart parameters, including heart rate, heart rhythm, and heart position, can be determined. An ECG provides indications of various heart conditions, including arrhythmias, coronary artery disease, heart attack, pericarditis, and myocarditis.

I routinely perform ECGs as part of preventive examinations or when there is suspicion of a heart condition.

Blood Draw / Laboratory Tests / Rapid Tests

In my medical practice, I perform not only blood draws but also rapid tests for diagnostic purposes.

  • Troponin Test

The Troponin test primarily serves for the rapid and reliable diagnosis of a heart attack.

  • Combur Test®

Combur Test strips are used to detect even minor pathological changes in urine. A Combur Test® is conducted, among other reasons, when there is suspicion of a urinary tract infection or kidney disease.

  • INR Measurement

The so-called INR value (International Normalized Ratio) is a laboratory parameter used to assess blood coagulation.

  • Lactose - Fructose Test

The Lactose or Fructose test is used to diagnose intolerances to lactose and fructose, respectively, found in milk and fruit sugars.

  • Lactose – Fructose Test

Der Lactose- bzw. Fructose Test dient der Diagnostik von Unverträglichkeiten gegenüber Milch- und Fruchtzucker.

Individual Pain Therapy

Individual pain therapy is used for the treatment of acute or chronic pain. In addition to medication-based treatment, I also offer my patients infusion and infiltration therapies. Physiotherapeutic measures are carried out in close collaboration with orthopedically trained physiotherapists.

  • Pain Infusions

As part of pain management, pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory medications (sometimes supplemented with muscle relaxants, as well as vitamin B and vitamin C supplements) can be administered in the form of intravenous infusions.

  • Injections

Depending on where the medication needs to be injected, there are different types of injections, including intramuscular, subcutaneous, intravenous, and intra-articular injections.

  • Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy is used both in prevention and in the treatment of medical conditions, including musculoskeletal disorders.

Surgical Clearance

Prior to planned surgeries, a surgical clearance, often referred to as an "OP-Freigabe" in German, is frequently required. Its purpose is to assess whether the anesthesia necessary for the surgery or the surgery itself poses any risks to the patient.

For surgical clearance, a blood test, an EKG (electrocardiogram), and a clinical examination are conducted. In some cases, patients may also require a chest X-ray, echocardiogram (heart ultrasound), or a lung function test.

  • Lactose - Fructose Test

The Lactose or Fructose test is used to diagnose intolerances to lactose and fructose, respectively, found in milk and fruit sugars.

Diabetes Mellitus / 
Blood Sugar Monitoring / 
Diabetes Consultation

Diabetes mellitus, also known as diabetes, is a chronic metabolic disorder characterized by elevated blood sugar levels due to insulin deficiency or reduced insulin effectiveness.

The causes of diabetes mellitus include hereditary predisposition, as well as factors such as obesity, lack of physical activity, an unhealthy diet, and smoking.

There are two main types of diabetes, Type 1 and Type 2, with nearly 90% of all diabetics suffering from Type 2 diabetes.

Diabetes is diagnosed through blood sugar measurements. A diagnosis of diabetes is made when the fasting blood sugar level is above 126mg/dl.

While Type 1 diabetics need to start insulin injections immediately upon diagnosis, lifestyle changes often lead to a reduction in blood sugar levels in Type 2 diabetics in the early stages of the condition.

I am available for comprehensive consultations and would be happy to assist you with any questions or concerns regarding diabetes management.

Evaluation of Cardiovascular Diseases

When there is suspicion of a cardiovascular disease, a precautionary EKG (Electrocardiogram) is performed. An EKG graphically represents not only heart rate and rhythm but also the electrical activities of the atria and ventricles of the heart.

  • Hypertension (High Blood Pressure) / Blood Pressure Measurement

Hypertension, or high blood pressure, is diagnosed when blood pressure values exceed 140/90mmHg. High blood pressure is one of the most common cardiovascular diseases and is primarily caused by an unhealthy lifestyle (lack of exercise, high-fat diet, obesity, excessive alcohol consumption, stress).

  • Coronary Artery Disease / Heart Attack

Coronary artery disease is caused by stenoses (narrowing) in the coronary arteries (heart vessels). These narrowings lead to insufficient oxygenated blood supply to the heart muscle. If blood flow is completely interrupted, it results in a heart attack.

  • Heart Failure

In the case of heart failure, the heart is no longer capable of pumping enough blood throughout the body. The weakening of the heart muscle results in oxygen and nutrient deficiency, leading to a gradual decline in physical performance. Additionally, chest pain and shortness of breath occur.

With timely initiation of treatment, the progression of the disease can be slowed, and both life expectancy and quality of life can be improved.

Gastrointestinal Tract Disorders - Diagnosis and Treatment

A comprehensive medical history, including information about current symptoms (such as location, timing, frequency, aggravating or relieving factors, and associated symptoms), plays a central role in diagnosing gastrointestinal tract disorders.

  • Gastritis

Gastritis refers to an inflammatory condition of the stomach lining. There are two main forms of gastritis: acute and chronic. Acute gastritis presents with sudden upper abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting, while chronic gastritis develops slowly and may cause no symptoms or nonspecific discomfort.

  • Reflux

The backflow of stomach acid into the esophagus is known as reflux. The hallmark symptom of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is heartburn.

  • Crohn's Disease

Crohn's disease is classified as a chronic inflammatory bowel disease. Although it most commonly affects the small and large intestines, it can potentially involve any part of the digestive tract.

  • Ulcerative Colitis

Ulcerative colitis is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease that exclusively affects the colon and is characterized by bloody, mucus-filled diarrhea and cramp-like pain in the left lower abdomen.

  • Esophagitis

Esophagitis often presents with symptoms such as pain while swallowing, a burning sensation behind the breastbone and upper abdomen, as well as heartburn. The inflammation can have various causes, including viral or fungal infections, but it is most frequently triggered by gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), where acidic stomach contents flow back into the esophagus.

Evaluation of Conditions in the Head, Nose, and Throat Area

For examinations in the throat area, headlamps or reflector mirrors are often used. Magnification allows for an accurate assessment of the mucous membranes. Ear examinations are conducted using an otoscope, which enables the viewing of both the external ear canal and the eardrum. Nasal examinations are performed with a nasal speculum.

  • Otitis Media (Middle Ear Infection)

Sudden onset ear pain, reduced hearing, along with a general feeling of illness accompanied by fever and ear noises are common signs of acute otitis media. Young children are often affected by middle ear infections. The primary cause is typically a viral infection.

  • Laryngitis (Inflammation of the Larynx)

Acute laryngitis is frequently caused by a viral infection, while chronic inflammation of the larynx often results from smoking or excessive vocal strain.

  • Tonsillitis (Inflammation of the Tonsils)

Tonsillitis involves painful inflammation of the palatine tonsils or the lymphatic ring in the throat. Tonsillitis can be triggered by viruses (such as influenza viruses) or bacteria (including streptococci). Symptoms manifest as high fever, throat pain, difficulty swallowing, and swollen lymph nodes.

  • Viral Infections

The most common viral infections include the common cold, followed by influenza (caused by influenza viruses), and acute bronchitis.

Lung Diseases - Diagnosis and Treatment

At the beginning of any diagnosis, a thorough medical history is taken. Additionally, a clinical examination is conducted, and oxygen saturation is measured (pulse oximetry). Sputum analysis is also significant, where the patient's sputum is microscopically assessed and examined for pathogens. In some cases, patients with lung diseases may require lung function testing (spirometry) as part of the diagnosis.

  • Bronchial Asthma

Bronchial asthma, commonly referred to as asthma, is a chronic inflammatory condition of the airways. Individuals with asthma respond to various triggers with sudden breathlessness, often accompanied by wheezing.

  • Chronic Bronchitis

Chronic bronchitis is characterized by permanently inflamed bronchial tubes. The primary symptoms of chronic bronchitis are cough and sputum production. Smoking is considered the most significant risk factor for its development. Without quitting smoking, chronic bronchitis can progress to COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease).

  • Pneumonia

Pneumonia, also known as lung inflammation, involves inflammation of lung tissue (pulmonary parenchyma). Bacteria are usually the causative agents, less commonly viruses or fungi. Pneumonia often follows a bout of the flu or a cold. Symptoms range from cough and fever to headache, muscle pain, and shortness of breath.

Mother-Child Passport Examinations

The examinations specified in the Mother-Child Passport are designed to ensure the health and well-being of both the mother and child. This comprehensive examination program aims to ensure a safe pregnancy and prevent developmental disorders and illnesses in the child up to the age of 5.
