Surgical treatment of degenerative joint conditions of the lower extremities
Artificial joint replacement of the hip and knee-joint
Surgical correction of axial malalignments of the hip and knee-joint
At the Joint Centre, located at the Hygiea Hospital in Berlin, we specialise in the correction of the deformities of the forefoot, hallux valgus and hallux rigidus, using the unique Rahmanzadeh surgical technique. Thanks to this technique, on the one hand, the patient is enabled to mobilise immediately, even following bilateral hallux surgery, and, for hallux rigidus (osteoarthritis of the metatarsophalangeal joint of the great toe restricting movement), the patient is spared the otherwise conventional ankylosis surgery. This means that, in spite of existing, even severe, arthritis, pain-free walking is made possible for the patient, with distinctly improved movement.
On the other hand, we perform artificial hip and hip and knee-joint replacement (total endoprosthesis) with a high degree of success at our facility. In particular, resurfacing the hip joint (Derek McMinn BHR), replacement of the hip-joint preserving the head of the femur, is performed at the Hygiea Hospital particularly frequently and successfully.
