At our sports cardiology department at LANS Medicum, we work with an interdisciplinary approach combining the fields of cardiology, orthopaedics, performance diagnostics and sports science. Whether you are a heart-healthy athlete, a patient with high blood pressure or an active individual with a heart condition, we treat you individually and holistically. We help you increase your heart health with or without cardio workouts.

Our cardiologists help you to go higher, faster and further

Cardiology and sports medicine specialist Dr. Markworth and her team consult recreational and professional athletes who suffer from all kinds of cardiac conditions (cardiac arrhythmias, coronary heart disease, heart muscle inflammation, cardiac insufficiency etc.). In addition to developing a suitable training plan, we support our patients during competitions and physically straining events like marathons or high altitude trips.

A special feature we offer at LANS Medicum is a high altitude chamber, which simulates high altitude conditions of up to 4,500 metres. During hypoxia training without a mask, you can benefit from the numerous compensation mechanisms of your body as it adapts its lung, heart, blood and cell functions to the oxygen deficiency you encounter in high altitudes. Constant one-on-one support by our sports scientists ensures a positive experience and outcome.
