Foot and ankle joint

Foot and Ankle Surgery / Pediatric Orthopedics

    Did you know that your feet really do the distance?
    In a way, they carry you around the world three times in your life. That's why it's so important to be on good footing from an early age. That is why at the Sportklinik Hellersen we pay the greatest attention to children's feet.

    Starting with the surgical correction of children's flat feet, corrections of malpositions of the feet and forefoot such as hallux valgus, through ankle interventions to the use of ligamentoplasty to stabilize the joints.

    Our foot and ankle surgery team has many years of experience in the conservative and surgical treatment of diseases and deformities of the foot and ankle - in children and adults.

    Individual treatment tailored to the patient is always the focus of our work.
