About us

Algesiologikum is an interdisciplinary working institution, concentrating on cross-sectoral care of patients with chronic pain.
Outpatients diagnosis and treatment takes a prominent place. A detailed diagnosis of chronic pain usually requires a multi-professional assessment which, normally takes place outpatient, and comprises a detailed diagnosis by a doctor and a psychological pain therapist, as well as a medical training therapist.

  • Anesthesiology, special pain therapy
  • Psychiatry
  • Neurology
  • Neurosurgery
  • Medical psychotherapy
  • Clinical geriatrics
  • Psychological psychotherapy (behavioral therapy)
  • Physical and rehabilitative medicine

The expertise of doctors of different disciplines, of psychological psychotherapists, of physiotherapists, of medical training therapists, of ergotherapists and of specially trained carers guarantee a high standard of diagnosis and treatment.
