About us

The Department of Orthopaedic and Accident Surgery at Rudolfiner House in Vienna is active in almost all areas of orthopaedics. Above all, routine procedures include surgical procedures on the hand and the foot, as well as procedures across the musculoskeletal system. This type of surgical procedure can be performed both under general anaesthesia and under regional or local anaesthesia.

The patients at the Orthopaedics Department in Vienna are also cared for as in-patients and as out-patients. This is primarily determined by the nature of the planned procedure and the general condition and the life situation of the patient concerned. The specialist orthopaedics team at Rudolfiner House in Vienna will be happy to clarify these options with you in the preliminary consultation.

Two latest generation arthroscopy towers are on hand in the Orthopaedics Department at Rudolfiner House. With the aid of these, the doctors perform minimally invasive arthroscopy procedures. This type of surgical technique is generally necessary due to an orthopaedic requirement and very often as a result of an accident surgery procedure. The work of the accident surgery specialists at Rudolfiner House for the optimal treatment following accidents and sports injuries is of the highest standard. As well as fresh injuries and wounds, chronic injuries are also treated at Rudolfiner House. Classic accident surgery at Rudolfiner House is extended by the disciplines of reconstructive, aesthetic and plastic surgery.

A particular specialist field at Rudolfiner House in Vienna is hand surgery. Here, of course, surgery is always the last method of choice. Nonetheless, it may in fact be the case that a hand is no longer treatable by physiotherapy methods alone. In such cases, where the loss of the function of the hand or the wrist is threatened, hand surgery is unavoidable. At Rudolfiner House, there is now the unique opportunity of obtaining a bona fide team of specialists for the treatment from three different disciplines. This team at the Orthopaedics Department in Vienna consists of the Orthopaedics and Orthopaedic Surgery Department, the Plastic Surgery Department and the Accident Surgery Department. The specialists of all three orthopaedics teams collaborate optimally in order to make your therapeutic success possible. Continual advanced scientific training at conferences and on exchange with medical colleagues worldwide guarantee the optimal treatment and surgical care in the Orthopaedics Department at Rudolfiner House in Vienna.
