About us

The Department of Orthopedic Surgery at the Rudolfinerhaus in Vienna is active in very nearly all areas of orthopedics. Routine procedures include, above all, surgery to the hand and foot, as well as procedures along the musculoskeletal system. These types of surgical procedures can be performed under a general anesthetic, as well as under local or regional anesthesia. Patients in the Department of Orthopedic Surgery in Vienna are also cared for as in-patients or as out-patients. This largely depends on the nature of the scheduled procedure and the general condition and life situation of the patients concerned.

The team of orthopedics experts at the Rudolfinerhaus in Vienna is happy to clarify these options with you in the preliminary consultation. Two state-of-the-art arthroscopy towers are available in the Department of Orthopedic Surgery at the Rudolfinerhaus. With the aid of these, the physicians perform minimal invasive arthroscopic procedures. This type of surgical technique is generally required due to orthopedic necessity, and very often as follow-up for trauma surgery. The trauma surgery specialists at the Rudolfinerhaus work at the highest standard for the optimum care following accidents and sports injuries. Together with fresh injuries and wounds, chronic injuries are also treated at the Rudolfinerhaus. Classic trauma surgery at the Rudolfinerhaus is augmented by the disciplines of reconstructive, esthetic and plastic surgery. One particular specialist field of the Rudolfinerhaus in Vienna is hand surgery. Here, of course, surgery is always the last means of choice. Nevertheless, it may be that a hand can no longer be treated by physical therapy techniques alone. In such cases, where the function of the hand or of the wrist is at risk of being lost, hand surgery is absolutely essential.

The Rudolfinerhaus now has a unique opportunity to develop a team of specialists from three different disciplines for this treatment. This team at the Department of Orthopedics in Vienna is comprised of specialists in orthopedics and orthopedic surgery, plastic surgery and trauma surgery. The specialists of all three orthopedics teams collaborate optimally in order to make your therapeutic success possible. Continual advanced scientific training at conferences and in exchange programs with medical colleagues across the world guarantees the optimum treatment and surgical care in the Department of Orthopedics at the Rudolfinerhaus in Vienna.
