Special Joint and Trauma Surgery

    Whether sports injury, accidental injury, fracture of the upper or lower extremity, consequence of injury or wear-related disease - our team of experts at the Center for Special Joint and Trauma Surgery will be happy to advise you on injuries or diseases of the shoulder, elbow, knee or ankle joint. After careful analysis of your complaints, we will draw up a treatment concept tailored to your individual needs. The most modern surgical and treatment methods are used, taking into account the latest scientific findings. Thanks to the extensive experience of our specialists, you benefit from the highest level of routine and expertise.

    If surgery becomes necessary, we use minimally invasive or arthroscopic procedures. Most joint injuries or diseases can be treated extremely precisely by arthroscopy. As a patient, you benefit not only from the smaller skin incision, but also from less pain, faster rehabilitation and a better functional result due to less scarring as a result of the tissue-sparing procedure.

    Our primary goal is the preservation of the joint or the restoration of joint function. We can also offer joint-preserving procedures for incipient osteoarthritis.

    If joint preservation is no longer possible, bone-saving endoprostheses that can be individually adapted to you are available.
