The Berufsgenossenschaftliche Unfallklinik Frankfurt am Main (BGU) is one of nine casualty hospitals for members of institutions in Germany responsible for statutory accident insurance and prevention (Berufsgenossenschaften).
From its foundation in 1962, the clinic has developed into a leading center for trauma and orthopedic surgery in Germany. It has 348 beds. With nine specialist departments, the BGU Frankfurt am Main provides a comprehensive medical range of services and treatment options, as well as offering medical know-how that guarantees treatment of injured patients at the highest level, in a 24 h stand-by service. Over and above this, all of the joint replacement operations (endoprosthetics) on hip, knee and shoulder joints following injury or due to wear as well as the extensive endoprosthetic replacement operations that we perform are of the highest possible quality. The treatment is not only available to patients who have suffered accidents at work, but also to patients under national insurance cover and privately insured patients.
Being where the Christoph 2 (RTH) rescue helicopter and the 11/82 (NEF) emergency doctor's car are principally housed, as well as the location of an additional helicopter landing pad, the BGU Frankfurt am Main has specialized for decades in the treatment of patients suffering multiple trauma and the most severe injuries.
The services of the clinic include the whole range of conservative and operative casualty interventions and post-traumatic reconstruction surgery as well as concentrating on orthopedic operations. This involves the latest methods for treating bone fractures, including joint injuries, the care of injuries to capsular ligaments and joint fractures, and the reconstruction of severe pelvic and spinal cord injuries.
The artificial replacement of hip, knee, shoulder, elbow and ankle joints is a special area in our range of treatment.
We also concentrate on foot surgery, sports orthopedics, especially knee and shoulder surgery, manual and reconstructive plastic surgery, and septic surgery.
