About us

Whether due to a bony fracture or a longstanding symptom of chronic wear – shoulder pain can have very different causes and characteristics. For the treatment of the injured shoulder joint, therefore, the experience of a specialist is sought. Prof. Markus Scheibel is a specialist in orthopedics and trauma surgery and is a highly qualified specialist in conditions affecting the shoulder joint and the elbow. From osteoarthritis and impingement syndrome to rotator cuff tear and to tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow, Prof. Scheibel treats all conditions of the shoulder and elbow, which can affect bones, cartilages, tendons and muscles. With positions at the ATOS Hospital (Heidelberg), at the Rechts der Isar Hospital (Munich) and at the Center for Musculoskeletal Surgery (CMSC) of the Charité Berlin, Prof. Scheibel’s medical career verifies the shoulder specialist’s highly esteemed specialist knowledge.

In science and research, Prof. Scheibel can look back on numerous nationally and internationally respected publications, which document his scientific projects and pioneering work. With his wide-ranging expertise, the President of the German Shoulder and Elbow Surgery Association (DVSE) has enriched the Department of Shoulder Surgery and Elbow Surgery at the Schulthess Hospital in Zurich as its Chief Physician since July 2018. The clinical emphases of Prof. Scheibel are in specialized surgery and endoprosthetics to the shoulder and elbow. Here, Prof. Scheibel performs both open and arthroscopic surgery. As minimal invasive techniques, shoulder and elbow arthroscopy are intended to keep the patient’s stress as low as possible. An individually prepared, multidisciplinary accompanied therapeutic concept provides the patient with customized treatment and sustainable recovery.

The therapeutic range also includes endoprostheses, that is, artificial joint replacement for the shoulder and elbow joint. Prof. Scheibel discusses what type of prosthesis is the right one for his patients in the personal consultation. A shoulder or elbow prosthesis is employed when the joint damage is also very advanced and conservative measures do not produce satisfactory results. To be able to participate actively and pain-free in life again or to return to sports following a shoulder injury, it is advisable to know you have an experienced expert by your side. The shoulder and elbow specialist, Prof. Scheibel, is looking forward to your contact request!
