Helios Baltic Sea Hospital Damp

General Info

Helios Baltic Sea Hospital Damp is a hospital specialising in the treatment of joints and the spinal column for more than 40 years. Every year, more than 10,000 patients from Germany and abroad rely on our outstanding expertise, especially in the fields of joint replacement and spine surgery.

Our renowned surgeons, rheumatologists and anaesthetists, the specialised therapists, the competent care staff as well as the possibility of acute treatment and subsequent rehabilitation from a single source make the hospital situated in the far north of Germany one of the prime addresses when it comes to diseases of the locomotor system.

Medical Care

Helios stands for high-quality medical care, using both the most up-to-date and the least intrusive methods. Our mission is to provide the finest medical treatment using both state-of-the-art procedures and technology. The inter-disciplinary approach of our highly skilled and experienced medical/nursing teams guarantees the best possible care for you.

Helios Baltic Sea Hospital Damp provides the following medical departments:

  • Anaesthesiology
  • Internal medicine/rheumatology
  • Neurosurgery/spine surgery
  • Surgical and conservative orthopedics


Besides excellent medical care, we also strive to offer good service. We would like to tailor your stay at the clinic to your individual needs and personal preferences in order to facilitate your well-being and quick recovery. From your balcony you can enjoy the marvellous view of the Baltic Sea or the idyllic landscape of Schwansen. All rooms are generous in size and furnished appealingly.

Naturally, we also have rooms that are accessible for people with impairments/disabilities.


For our guests with higher demands, we offer accommodation in our newly opened optional services area. The concept behind the furnishing is to combine the comfort of a hotel with all potential medical requirements. The selected colours, materials and premium equipment with integrated media technology, as well as the elegant bathroom furnishing, create a pleasant atmosphere in which your recovery can proceed smoothly.

You will almost forget that you are in a clinic, considering the impressive views of the Baltic Sea from the café lounges and thanks to the personalised and competent care of our special service personnel.

We offer a wide range of optional services so that your stay can be customised to your personal requirements. Besides treatment by the doctor of your choice, we offer a particularly comfortable accommodation with many additional services such as a single room, a fridge and a balcony.

The billing will take place conveniently via your private or additional insurance, or, if you do not have such insurance, with you directly.

In order to avoid heavy pain following the surgery, Helios Baltic Sea Hospital Damp offers all advanced anaesthetic techniques, such as nerve blocks or patient-controlled analgesia pumps. Moreover, patients who have just undergone surgery have our team of eleven specially trained pain nurses at their disposal round the clock.

Surgery and rehabilitation from a single source

Subsequent rehabilitation is strongly recommended following many surgical procedures. To this end, Helios Baltic Sea Hospital Damp closely collaborates with the adjacent Helios Rehabilitation Hospital Damp. The two hospitals are connected via a glass pedestrian tunnel with disabled access. At the Rehabilitation Hospital Damp, you will find physicians and therapists who specialise in the rehabilitation of patients following joint and spine surgeries. Independent studies have shown that patients who received treatment at the Helios Rehabilitation Hospital following joint replacement recover more quickly and can leave the hospital earlier and in a better general condition. Your surgeon is immediately available in the event of any complications. In case of concomitant diseases, you can receive medical treatment from the specialists of the Departments of Cardiology, Nephrology, Orthopaedics, Neurology and Psychosomatic Medicine. A dialysis department is available as well.

Help with language problems

In the event of communication problems, we will be happy to provide an interpreter. This way, you can ask any questions concerning your disease, the surgical procedure and the anaesthesia, provide information on your medical history and any physical discomfort and tell us about any concerns and worries in your native language without any language barriers.
