Depatment of Orthopaedics and Trauma Surgery


The department for orthopaedics and trauma surgery covers the entire range of services concerning all conditions and injuries of the human musculoskeletal system.

Furthermore the department has been certified as a German centre of maximum care in endoprosthetics (Endoprothesenzentrum der Maximalversorgung).

All conditions and injuries are treated by different teams of qualified specialists.

Each year we take care for more than 4.000 inpatients and more than 10.000 outpatients. Some of the most frequently performed treatments include operative procedures on hip, knee and shoulder joints.

The merger of orthopaedics and trauma surgery under one roof opens the
way to synergies in everyday practice.
