Orthopaedics is the specialist area concerned with the body's mechanisms of support and movement, from the topmost bone in the neck to the bottom-most bones in the toes. The Schön Klinik has been engaged in the field of orthopaedics since the mid 1990s, and have since then attained an indisputably high level of expertise recognised even within the field thanks to enormous commitment and substantial investment.

Most of the about six thousand serious injuries of the spine each year in Germany affect the thoracic and lumbar sections of the spine.
