Dr Petra Heizmann, MD

After a 6-year study of human medicine at the Georg-August-Universität Göttingen Mrs. Dr. Heizmann graduated her medical specialist training in internal medicine at various clinics. As a part of her comprehensive training, the emphasis of her work was placed on the fields of cardiology, nephrology, including the care of dialysis or kidney transplant patients and the medical intensive care medicine. Under the stewardship of Professor Schuster, one of the leading intensive care physician and cardiologist at that time, she was employed as a Senior Physician within the Intensive Care Unit of the City Hospital in Hildesheim (Städtisches Krankenhaus Hildesheim).

After her move to the German Heart Institute in Berlin (Deutschen Herzzentrum Berlin) in 2001 she was working under Prof. Hetzer as the Senior Physician intern of Internal Medicine in the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit. During this time she acquired more extensive knowledge on the medicine most complex areas of cardiac surgery and transplantation medicine of organs such as lungs and heart.

Their recognition as an internist acquired Dr. Heizmann 1996, the additional titels "emergency medicine" in 1994 and "senior emergency physician" in 1996 and "Internistic intensive care" in 1998. She completed her further training in 2008 with the award of the sub-specialisation "Cardiology".

Since 2006, Mrs. Dr. Heizmann has held the title of Head Physician of Internal Medicine and since 2009 Medical Director of the St. Wolfgang Clinic (Klinik St. Wolfgang). With the extensive wealth of experience acquired in the past it was possible for her to rebuild the medical care and to arrange comprehensively by using the latest diagnostic methods. Together with her team of experienced specialists acutely ill patients with internal medicine syndromes are treated at a high international level. In the acute stage is a treatment on the "intermediate care" station with continuous monitoring of all vital parameters possible. Cardiac diseases are the focus of acute care. Procedures such as echocardiography of the heart including transesophageal presentation enables using the latest equipment together with a three-dimensional representation of the organ an accurate diagnosis of various cardiac functions. This is essential for successful individual therapy.

A second focus of the department is the care of patients after an acute hospitalization. Also in this area the long experience of Mrs. Dr. Heizmann in the treatment of severely ill patients contributes to direct the healing process and lead it to success.

Examples are patients with cardiovascular diseases such as state after heart attacks or heart surgery (bypass or heart valve replacement), metabolic diseases, in particular diabetes (diabetes mellitus), those with malignant diseases or after transplantation of organs (liver, lung, heart). Together with the team of physiotherapists detailed plans for building individual physical performance have been developed and implemented in the therapy.

Today prevention of diseases and an early diagnosis, eg. of an unnoticed hypertension (high blood pressure) or diabetes are crucial components of a healthy and long life. For this reason comprehensive check-ups are offered that are adapted to the individual medical needs. Comprehensive advice on the basis of the collected parameters is - if necessary - the basis for lifestyle changes in order to obtain the state of health into old age. Turning to patients, a comprehensive diagnosis and the resulting individual customized therapy is crucial for Mrs. Dr. Heizmann!
