At 3.5 months, our son was diagnosed with Vest epilepsy syndrome, the treatment lasted for 2 months in the clinic, we were picked up by the necessary medications and the son was no longer suffering from terrible seizures. We are already 2 years old and we have already caught up with our peers in development. Many thanks to Martin Heusler! В 3,5 месяца у нашему сыну поставили диагноз Синдром Веста эпилепсия, лечение в клинике длилось 2 месяца, нам подобрали нужные медикаменты и сына перестали мучить страшные приступы. Нам уже 2 года и мы уже догнали своих сверстников в развитии. Огромное спасибо Мартину Хойслеру!

The science park and the hospital are facilities of the medical faculty of Rheinisch-Westfälische Technische Hochschule Aachen.

Many patients who have visited University Hospital Aachen happily call this hospital a real medical town. Specialized centers are ready to help people with any medical problem at any stage. A regular blood test or a comprehensive body examination which other hospitals fail to provide can be completed here. High standards of preliminary diagnostics are proven just by the fact that an institute for nuclear medicine, radiology department and neurosurgery clinic are parts of University Hospital Aachen. A sophisticated navigation system for surgeries in difficult-to-reach areas is successfully used in the neurosurgery clinic. It is extremely popular with the patients who suffer from late stage neurosurgical diseases. The same system can be used for the spine or adenoma. Radiological surgery is performed with a cyberknife which is not very often used in European hospitals.
University Hospital Aachen includes the following specialized divisions:
- invasive and intensive cardiology
- several research units specializing in airway disorders
- cardiovascular surgery
- orthopedic unit
- urology clinic
- radiotherapy clinic
- neurosurgery clinic
- neurology department
In addition to doctors and research fellows, about 50 masseurs and physiotherapists work at the hospital. A therapy plan is designed for inpatients at the stage of admission when tests, course of medical treatment and diet are administered. The therapy plan includes physical exercises outdoors, massage or additional physiotherapy in case of serious internal diseases or bone disorders. This contributes to general recovery, immunity boosting and quick rehabilitation.
