Orthopaedics and sports traumatology. Endoprosthetics Knee and shoulder surgery. Our specialisations

The following diseases and injuries are treated in the clinic for orthopaedics and sports traumatology, endoprosthetics, knee and shoulder surgery:

 

Endoprosthetics

  • individually adjusted endoprostheses
  • Joint replacement operations with the help of computer-aided navigation systems
  • Surface replacement operations (on younger hip patients)
  • Use of endoprostheses to treat bone fractures near joints
  • Use of minimum-invasive operating techniques
 

In the field of endoprosthetics, joint replacement operations are performed on the entire musculoskeletal system. Close cooperation between the clinic for anaesthesiology and intensive medicine ensures that, in addition to straightforward initial operations on the hip and knee joints, more serious replacement techniques can be safely carried out.

The range of services covers:

  • Individually adjusted endoprostheses
  • Joint replacement operations with the help of computer-aided navigation systems
  • Surface replacement operations (on younger hip patients)
  • Use of endoprostheses to treat bone fractures near the joints
  • Use of minimally invasive operating techniques
 

General Orthopaedics

  • Joint preserving operation on the locomotive system (corrective osteotomies, leg axis corrections)
  • Cartilage treatment
  • Bone / cartilage transplant
  • Cartilage cell transplant following biotechnological cartilage cell cultivation in the laboratory (biological reinstatement of the disturbed joint functions)
  • Minimum-invasive operation methods for forefoot deformities (Hallux valgus, spread foot)
 

General orthopaedics covers all available standard surgical procedures:

  • Joint preserving operation on the musculoskeletal system (corrective osteotomies, leg axis corrections)
  • Cartilage treatment
  • Bone / cartilage transplantation
  • Cartilage cell transplantation following biotechnological cartilage cell cultivation in the laboratory (biological reinstatement of the impaired joint functions)
  • Minimally invasive surgical methods for forefoot deformities (Hallux valgus, spread foot)

A standard at the orthopaedic clinic is our own bone bank. Preoperative donation of one's own blood is possible prior to scheduled interventions.

 

Shoulder surgery

  • Reconstruction of tendons and muscles
  • Stabilisation operations following shoulder luxations and acromioclavicular joint fractures
  • Care of fractures
  • Minimum-invasive, arthroscopic procedures
  • Widening of the Fornix humeri and acromioclavicular joint resections
  • Revision operations
  • State-of-the-art therapy facilities for post-operative treatment
 

Shoulder surgery encompasses all established techniques, as far as endoprosthetic treatment:

  • Reconstruction of tendons and muscles
  • Stabilisation operations following shoulder luxations and acromioclavicular joint fractures
  • Treatment of fractures
  • Minimally invasive, arthroscopic procedures
