In most cases arthrosis is the root cause of joint diseases. Arthrosis affects at least one joint in more than half of the 50-year-old people in Germany. They experience pain and are unable to move the way they would like to. This places a burden on their everyday routines and well-being. Patients benefit from our long-standing experience in the treatment of joint diseases.
A wide variety of conservative methods such as medication or special physiotherapy techniques are available for the initial treatment of joint diseases. But if these options prove inadequate, an artificial joint can ensure absence from pain and greater quality of life.
We are certified as an endoprosthetics centre, which means the quality of the care we provide is audited regularly by external specialists. Our patients receive all necessary diagnostic and therapeutic measures based on the current guidelines. We sit down with the patient, the GP, the practising surgeon or the orthopaedic surgeon to discuss treatment in our Endoprosthetics Centre.
... are initially asked to describe your precise symptoms in a consultation during our surgery hours. This way the doctor can acquire a precise impression of your personal restrictions and the extent of your suffering. We also perform extensive physical examinations, analyse X-rays or even CT or MRI images if necessary. The doctor uses all of this information to produce a diagnosis together with recommendations for future treatment. You will be referred back to your GP or specialist if you are to continue receiving conservative treatment. But the doctor will explain the various methods to you if surgery is necessary. This is followed by surgery planning and scheduling, as well as information about the relevant contact persons.
Besides regular visits by the doctor, you will also receive extensive physiotherapy. Patients are trained to manage their new joint in everyday situations. They can then be discharged, depending on their state of health and mobility situation. The doctors and nurses on the ward are on hand to answer questions relating to treatment and care. Our partners from Social Services provide competent advice on questions of social law, rehabilitation and possible assistance.
