Experience and diligence: Prof. Thomas Kalteis’ reputation as a perfectionist for joint replacements precedes him, someone whose top priority during his operations is diligence. Each year, the endoprosthetics specialist from the Orthopedic Surgery Munich implants around 400 artificial hips and 350 artificial knees. He performs these operations himself, from positioning through to suturing.
This means that over the past 20 years, Prof. Kalteis has provided nearly 10,000 patients with an artificial joint. Prof. Kalteis is regarded as a “high volume” surgeon in the endoprosthetics world, one of the pioneers of modern types of prostheses and innovative surgical procedures, and is an active national and international trainer and lecturer.
