About us

Orthopedic conditions and injuries, in particular, of the joints, are part of a wide-ranging specialized medical field. Well-grounded expertise and focused skill are demanded here in order to be able to restore the patient’s quality of life quickly. Patients will find state-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic techniques and individual treatment in a confident atmosphere under the care of the interdisciplinary networked specialists at the SRH Karlsbad-Langensteinbach Hospital. The hospital is an academic teaching hospital of the University of Heidelberg and provides quality-tested medicine in accordance with the most up to date scientific insights and standards. Here, the orthopedic specialist Christian Neuhaeuser is the Chief Physician of the Department of Orthopedics, Traumatology and Endoprosthetics, which is affiliated with the internationally highly respected Center for Spinal Surgery, Orthopedics and Traumatology. The renowned specialist in surgery to the extremities and joints possesses impressive specialized knowledge gained during over 20 years of experience as a surgeon and his extensive experience in the field of endoprosthetics and arthroscopy. As a specialist in orthopedics and trauma surgery, he has many years experience in the treatment of disorders and injuries to the knee, the hips and the shoulder. This includes the care of meniscus injuries, cruciate ligament rupture, hip dysplasias and osteoarthritis (degenerative disorders) of all large joints. Dr. Neuhaeuser provides vital additional emphases with arthroscopy of the hip, for example, for painful impingement syndrome or for painful hip endoprostheses and the surgical treatment of deformities, osteoarthritis and injuries to the foot. In the field of shoulder surgery, rotator cuff defects or impingement are treated by means of arthroscopic surgery. The joint specialist Dr. Neuhaeuser, with his specialized competence, is also able to extend the treatment portfolio of the SRH Karlsbad-Langensteinbach Hospital to foot surgery. One important treatment focus of Christian Neuhaeuser is endoprosthetics, the artificial replacement of joints. For osteoarthritis, degeneration of the shoulder, hip and knee joint, a new prosthetic joint can be inserted here or an existing prosthetic can be replaced (so-called revision surgery). The idea here is to select the most suitable endoprosthesis for the patient individually and ultimately to insert this as gently as possible and minimal invasively. Consequently, the therapeutic range of Christian Neuhaeuser and his specialist colleagues includes the entire range of orthopedic and trauma surgery clinical pictures. Along with in-patient care, a large number of procedures are also provided for out-patients. For Christian Neuhaeuser, the patient as an individual is the focus of the treatment process. Christian Neuhaeuser is your competent and experienced expert for the precise diagnosis, customized treatment and individual aftercare of orthopedic and trauma surgery conditions. Following his medical studies at the University of Cologne, inter alia, he was employed at the CPDU Sports Clinic in Duisburg and as the Principal Consultant at the internationally renowned St. Johanna Etienne Hospital in Neuss, in the fields of orthopedics, surgery and endoprosthetics. Christian Neuhaeuser now supports his patients and individual treatment concepts at the SRH Karlsbad-Langensteinbach Hospital.
