Centers and Other Facilities at Klinikum Landkreis Erding
The Outpatient Surgery Center of Klinikum Landkreis Erding has been in place since the spring of 2006 and performs a great number of outpatient procedures.
The expertise of various special disciplines is consolidated under the roof of the Erding Bowel Center, certified by TÜV Süd, to offer patients assistance from one source. Alongside optimum individual medical treatment, the Erding Bowel Centre offers wide-ranging medical, social and psychological support and, together with local general practitioners and specialists, contributes to educating people about colon cancer and the possibilities of prevention.
The Vascular Surgery Department of Klinikum Landkreis Erding was certified as a Vascular Center by the German Society for Vascular Surgery for the first time in December 2006. The Vascular Centre takes care of patients suffering from acute and chronic arterial and venous diseases.
The Erding Hypertension Center aims to provide the best possible care for patients suffering from hypertension. We believe that this level of care can only be accomplished in close collaboration between general practitioners, specialists and hospital physicians.
The Erding Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory provides diagnostic and therapeutic services to patients suffering from a wide range of diseases of the blood supply to the heart, the cardiac muscle or the cardiac valves. These include coronary angiography, coronary interventions and medical care for patients who suffered an acute myocardial infarction.
Owing to the close collaboration of various disciplines, patients with pulmonary diseases receive comprehensive treatment at the Pneumology Center of Competence of Klinikum Landkreis Erding. In the case of pulmonary diseases, especially tumour and interstitial pulmonary diseases, prompt diagnosis and the initiation of a specific treatment is of particular importance. Patients suffering from other common diseases, such as severe forms of bronchial asthma and chronic obstructive bronchitis with emphysema, receive comprehensive medical treatment, if necessary, including long-term oxygen therapy and home ventilation.
In order to ensure the best possible treatment for stroke patients from our region, we established a Stroke Unit at Klinikum Landkreis Erding on 1 June 2013. The availability of a neurologist specialising in stroke treatment on 365 days a year round the clock is guaranteed through our connection to the TEMPiS project (Telemedical Project for Integrated Stroke Management in South-East Bavaria). This TEMPiS team consisting of the Stroke Centre in Munich-Harlaching and Regensburg University Hospital already provides advice to 15 regional hospitals via a digital network.
To round off the service portfolio, Klinikum Landkreis Erding has its own Therapy Center – because physical therapy, ergotherapy, speech therapy and podology are important supplements to medication and surgical treatment. During their inpatient stay, patients receive treatment on the ward; if they wish so, patients at Klinikum Erding can receive additional treatment directly at the Therapy Centre. Following inpatient stay, the treatment can be continued at the Therapy Centre on an outpatient basis.
The Erding Spine Center has been established to provide competent medical treatment to patients with back problems at Klinikum Landkreis Erding. All spinal trauma surgeries are performed by Chief Consultant Prof. Dr. Gerhard Konrad and his department. By contrast, degenerative diseases of the spinal column are treated by the specialists of the Apex-Spine Centre in Munich, with which Klinikum Landkreis Erding maintains close cooperation.
