The Department of Orthopedic Surgery focuses on the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases and injuries of the musculoskeletal system. The department offers specialty consultation hours for the hip/pelvis, spine, shoulder and elbow, knee as well as the ankle/foot.
Each of these teams conducts weekly consultation hours for outpatients. The surgical spectrum includes arthroscopy, prosthetic replacement, tumor surgery, osteosynthesis, computer-assisted surgery, soft tissue reconstruction, osteotomy and ligament reconstruction. As a result of continuous research, new treatment methods are being developed on an ongoing basis.
