Our services and competences

The structure of the foot is incredibly complex. 26 bones are bound by over 33 joints and held together by over 100 ligaments. 20 muscles with strong tendons keep the foot agile, as well as steady.

The foot’s skin, muscles and tendons are connected to numerous nerves, hereby enabling the foot’s owner to sense pressure, muscle and tendon strain and temperature. This makes the foot a sensitive organ that recognises uneven surfaces, can differentiate between soft and hard surfaces, and can tell if something is warm or cold, sharp or blunt. Blood vessels supply the foot with oxygen and nutrients.

Over recent years, considerable progress has been made in the standardised diagnosis and treatment of shoulder complaints. The causes of superficial and congenial complaints can, in reality, differ greatly. As patients enact in more demanding types of sports, as well as increased activity in older age, causes and triggers must be recognised and treated accordingly. The aim of our treatment is not only to ensure that the shoulder is pain-free but also that it can function properly.

There has been a profound shift in the surgical treatment of spinal disorders over the last years. It is comparable with the triumph made in hip and knee arthritis therapy with artificial joint replacement. In spine therapy, this includes minimal invasive catheter and probe technology, endoscopic procedures – so-called keyhole surgery techniques – as well as the implantation of vertebral disc endoprothetics in the lumbar and cervical spine.

Wear of the larger joint due to arthritis, especially in old age, due to rheumatoid arthritis or after an accident does not only result in debilitating and constant pain, but also heavily restricts patients’ mobility and also limits their quality of life.

The knee is the largest joint in the human body and, in terms of its mechanics, the most complex. We bend and stretch our knees millions of times during the course of our lifetimes and thus the knee is, accordingly, put under heavy strain. By a certain age it has often suffered a certain amount of wear; arthritis, as it is called, can lead to intense and continuous pain.

In terms of function, the elbow joint is made up of three bones that are flexibly joined: bending and stretching the lower arm is controlled by the interaction of a hinge joint with a ball joint. Furthermore, the pivot joint allows for lower arm hand rotation. The elbow is a protruding part of the ulna bone and, together with the upper arm bone, forms a hinge joint. This ensures that the lower arm cannot bend backwards.

Hand and foot disorders have always been a particular challenge for orthopaedic doctors. The articulated joints are numerous and the demand placed on hands and feet is very high. Hand surgery comprises of conservative as well as surgical measures to treat hand disorders and injuries, as well as deformities. Hand operations are highly complex and should only be carried out by specifically trained, expert doctors who have gained an additional qualification in ‚hand surgery’.

The upper ankle is made up of 3 bones – the calf bone (fibula), the shinbone (tibia) and the anklebone (talus), which are stabilised by a capsular ligament. Due to heavy strain, injuries to the ligaments as well as broken bones are relatively common in this part of the body. Depending on the type of injury, this can be treated using conservative or surgical interventions.
