About us

OCM, Orthopaedic Surgery in Munich, specialises in the treatment of patients with injuries and conditions of the musculoskeletal system. Our objective is to provide our patients with comprehensive care of the highest medical standard; diagnostic evaluation, treatment and rehabilitation from a single source. 
For us, good care begins with the diagnosis. We rely on the latest therapeutic techniques, our own research and advanced equipment and technology. As a result, surgery can frequently be performed as an out-patient service or an in-patient admission can be reduced to a minimum

For all orthopaedic disorders, such as injuries and conditions of the shoulder, the elbow, the hand, the spinal column, the hips, the knee, the ankle and the foot, our own specialists are available at the OCM in Munich, to restore function and freedom from pain. Together with minimally invasive procedures such as the endoscopic removal of a herniated disc, complex surgery such as the implantation of total endoprostheses can also be performed at the OCM.

The OCM enjoys an outstanding reputation in medical specialist circles; its 20 specialists are acknowledged, experienced specialist medical practitioners, who specialise in one or more orthopaedic fields.
