Personal information


In the rheumatology consultation hours at Medicover Munich East and Munich am Viktualienmarkt, experienced specialists in internal medicine and rheumatology offer rheumatological diagnostics and therapy according to current scientific standards, taking individual needs into account.

Due to the various causes of these diseases and their different courses, a differentiated selected therapy must be chosen. The initial goal of treatment is to relieve patients of pain and restricted mobility and prevent the destruction of joints or severe damage to internal organs.

State-of-the-Art Diagnostics and Therapy for Inflammation of the Joints (Arthritis)

Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic rheumatic disease. It involves autoimmune diseases in which the immune system turns against the body's tissue. In particular, the mucous membranes lining all joint cavities are affected by progressive inflammation. This causes movement-induced pain in the affected joints, swelling, and morning stiffness. Furthermore, the inflammatory processes can spread to other tissues in the body, so tendons, eyes, blood vessels, and internal organs are also affected. Such severe systemic manifestations are expressed in more general symptoms such as listlessness and weakness. Therefore, the earlier the disease is diagnosed, the better the course of the disease can be influenced positively by medication. Otherwise, there is a risk of complete loss of function of the affected joints.

Medical Expertise in Inflammatory Spinal Diseases (Spondylarthritis)

Spondylarthritis is also an inflammatory disease of the rheumatic spectrum. In this case, the small joints of the spine between the single vertebras are affected by the autoimmune inflammatory processes without being infected by a pathogen. However, if the disease progresses untreated, ossification of the spine occurs, which manifests as a typical ankylosing spondylitis hump, a stiffened, bent-forward curve of the spine.

MEDICOVER's internal medicine and rheumatology specialists have the clinical experience to diagnose the disease in time to prevent chronic stiffening of the musculoskeletal system.

Diagnosis and Treatment of Connective Tissue Disease (Inflammatory Connective Tissue Diseases)

Connective tissue diseases, such as lupus erythematosus, are autoimmune processes that affect the body's collagen, i.e., the primary substance of connective tissue. Since there is plenty of connective tissue in all organs, basically every region of the body and every organ can be affected by this disease. However, systemic manifestations in internal organs are most common. Raynaud's phenomenon stands out as a particularly striking symptom. A cold stimulus causes the supplying arteries of the hand to constrict, causing the fingers to appear white, like the finger of a corpse. Combined with more general symptoms, such as fatigue, fever, muscle and joint pain, and skin and mucous membrane changes, these signs point to the correct diagnosis.

Patients can be treated with immunomodulating drugs to avoid severe organ damage or complications if the diagnosis is made in time.

Specialists for Vasculitis (Inflammation of the Blood Vessels)

In rheumatoid vasculitis, the wall structures of primarily arterial blood vessels are initially damaged, resulting in a limited supply to the supply area of the affected conduit. As a result, headaches in the temporal region are typical, indicating giant cell arteritis. In this rheumatologic emergency, blindness is imminent, so a rheumatology specialist should be consulted immediately. As a result of the inadequate blood supply to affected vessels, damage to all organ systems can consequently occur. Through blood tests and imaging procedures using ultrasound and Computer tomography, the specialists at MEDICOVER find the correct diagnosis. They can prevent the progression of chronic disease through the timely administration of immunosuppressive or immunomodulating drugs.

Treatment of Polymyalgia Rheumatica (Inflammatory Soft Tissue Rheumatism)

Inflammatory soft-tissue rheumatism also severely limits the quality of life, as all muscles can cause pain due to autoimmune inflammatory processes. These restrictions occur primarily in the shoulder and pelvic area and lead to morning stiffness in a clustered fashion. Giant cell arteritis of the temporal artery is also frequently associated with these symptoms, which carries a high risk of blindness and requires specialist clarification. In most cases, cortisone therapy can prevent the progression of the disease and improve the patient's quality of life.

Specialists for Osteoporosis in Munich

Osteoporosis occurs more frequently in women after menopause due to hormonal changes. It can be explained by a decreasing estrogen level, a hormone that generally inhibits the constant bone resorption by osteoclasts. Due to the increasing porosity of the bones, fractures can occur spontaneously without significant trauma. The deficient estrogen can be replaced with medication to prevent spontaneous fractures in this situation.
