Institute for Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation

The staff of the Institute for Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Döbling Private Hospital are the perfect partners to help you preserve and restore your physical capabilities.

All treatments can be received during an inpatient stay or as an outpatient. Refunds can even be obtained from your insurer if you have a doctor’s prescription.

Individual care

Personal and individual care for our patients is at the heart of everything we do. We also place the greatest emphasis on good multidisciplinary collaboration.

Another quality factor is that, as an outpatient, you will be continuously assisted by the same team of therapists. We work with you to set goals and create a specially tailored training plan to reach those goals as quickly as possible.

Flexible appointment scheduling makes it easier for you to quickly find the best path to your recovery.
