Operative treatment areas

Endoprosthetics

In cases of severe joint wear (arthrosis), despite the most modern conservative and minimally invasive therapy procedures, joint replacement or axis correction is often necessary. Your experienced surgeon will advise you on the various treatment options, with regard to your personal needs. All modern procedures, with custom-made, partial / full prosthesis, are offered.

Hip, knee and shoulder implants. The radiological examinations (CT / MRI) necessary for custom-made prostheses are carried out at our clinic. Complex joint replacement operations are also conducted by our orthopaedic team. Peter Braun and Dr. Springorum both have many years of experience as endoprosthetic department heads.

  • endoprosthetic replacement surgery
  • surgery around the knee joint in cases of malposition or arthrosis

Arthroscopy

Arthroscopy is a surgical procedure in which our seasoned experts introduce a probe (arthroscope) into the articular cavity. Compared to open joint surgery, arthroscopy usually results in less pain. In addition, healing usually proceeds much faster and the joint regains mobility and resilience much earlier. Whether arthroscopy or open surgery is suitable / necessary can be clarified during extensive preliminary discussions with our orthopaedists. Dr. Klingenberg is a specialized arthroscopist and is a member of the Society for Arthroscopy and Joint Surgery (Gesellschaft für Arthroskopie und Gelenkchirurgie).
