About us

Together with a competent team of trained physiotherapists, Dr Florian Dirisamer and Dr Christian Patsch, both specialists in orthopaedics, provide orthopaedic surgery and sports orthopaedics and treat all conditions of the musculoskeletal system at the Orthopaedics and Sports Surgery Practice in Puchenau near Linz.

One particular focus of the Orthopaedics and Sports Surgery Practice in Puchenau is the diagnosis and treatment of conditions and injuries in the region of the knee joint. So, as specialists in reconstructive knee surgery, Dr Dirisamer and Dr Patsch have a high degree of experience in the treatment of instabilities of the kneecap and in performing meniscus transplantations. Further treatment emphases in the area of the knee also include ligament reconstruction (cruciate ligaments, lateral ligaments) and axial correction (adjustment osteotomy).

Endoprosthetics of the knee and hip is also a specialist field of both orthopaedic surgeons. Here, the gentlest route towards the new joint is particularly important to the surgeons. Attention is paid to the highest quality and durability in the selection of the implants used.

If surgery is necessary, the procedure is performed by both orthopaedic surgeons as a team. Two specialists working together at the operating table ensure the optimal surgical process. By this means, complex procedures can also be performed quickly and safely.

Here, the range of services of Dr Dirisamer, Dr Patsch and their team includes both conservative and surgical treatment techniques. In determining the therapeutic concepts, Dr Dirisamer and Dr Patsch are always guided by the individual needs of the patients and the respective phase of the condition.

The Orthopaedics and Sports Surgery Practice has state-of-the-art medical equipment. The practice team arranges appointments at short notice for examinations which are not possible on site (e.g. MRT). Dr Dirisamer and Dr Patsch invariably take the time during their examination and treatment to be able to counsel and care for their patients optimally.

Thanks to their international lecturing and instructing activities, as well as their numerous publications (scientific articles, contributions to books) and advanced training, treatment of the highest possible standard is assured.
