Interdisciplinary Medical Center

Clinic for Orthopaedics and Trauma Surgery

Our clinic provides trauma care including treatment of work accidents and sports accidents and offers the entire range of modern conservative and surgical orthopaedic therapy. Joint damage and injury are treated via the latest biotechnological procedures (e.g. matrix-connected cartilage cell transplantation, ligament replacement plasty, meniscus suture), if requested – in combination with axis correction.

In case of arthrosis, state-of-the-art prosthesis are implanted using minimally invasive techniques for joint replacement. We attach special importance to anatomically correct reconstruction. We use anatomically custom-manufactured knee endoprosthesis cutting blocks and hip prostheses among others. Apart from endoprosthetics of the knee and the hip, we also perform endoprosthetics of the shoulder, elbow and ankle joint. Here, we emphasize interdisciplinary treatment of rheumatism patients. Another focus is on revision endoprosthetics.

Regarding the spine, we provide kyphoplasty in case of fractures. Additionally, we offer the whole range of modern foot surgery.
