About us Bone Clinic

Situated in the middle of Mannheim, a renowned clinic treats functional limitations in mobility, with several proven specialists working simultaneously. Appropriately named “Die Knochenklinik” (The Bone Clinic), a highly specialised team offers specialised surgical treatments and therapies for all issues relating to the musculoskeletal system – all coordinated in close cooperation with clinics and departments for neurology, physiotherapy, angiology, geriatrics, pain therapy, orthopaedic technology and rehabilitation.

In the summer of 2021, the prestigious Clinic for Orthopaedics, Trauma and Reconstructive Surgery at the Diako Mannheim made headlines: As a newly established “Bone Clinic”, the flagship department at Mannheim's Diakonissenkrankenhaus now bears its innovative approach to state-of-the-art high-performance medicine directly in its name.

The team led by distinguished Head Physician Dr med. Henning Röhl knows exactly how to find the right solution for ideal mobility based on the latest research and technology. All limitations of the locomotor organs are treated here at an international level.

High-class sports orthopaedics: networked in the region

All specialists in the team attach great importance to a balanced and extremely thorough diagnosis. For each individual joint of the musculoskeletal system, the Bone Clinic has a highly competent expert. It is not only numerous sports clubs and sports associations that benefit from this multi-shouldered expertise, relying on the enormous expertise of the Clinic’s doctors. But also non-organised athletes and numerous people active in sports in the entire Rhine-Neckar region have top-class care through the Bone Clinic – for instance in the treatment of typical sports injuries to the joints and tendons. This also includes cruciate ligament replacement operations, tendon sutures or reconstructive procedures on the shoulder and elbow joints.

Young and older patients: empathy required

The specialists also offer outstanding experience with the still growing skeleton of children and adolescents – for example, in the context of emergency first aid for fractures and dislocations. The orthopaedic specialists at the Bone Clinic are all familiar with the unique situations among young patients. This naturally includes the corresponding empathy – a crucially important factor here.

A great deal of empathy and special expertise is also required in the treatment of older people: That is why the in-house centre for geriatric traumatology also works closely with the department of geriatrics. When it comes to therapies for the consequences of accidents in senior citizens, the often limited resilience and any accompanying diseases must also be taken into account. The Bone Clinic Team takes advantage of the proximity to the Geriatric Rehabilitation Clinic at the Diako Mannheim. In this way, the hospital with its interdisciplinary approach meets the special challenges of an adapted recovery of everyday abilities.

Mobility for all: individual therapy planning

To ensure that mobility has a firm basis, instabilities and malpositions of the feet and ankles play a major role in the Clinic’s treatment spectrum. Whether it is age-related changes or damage caused by an accident: the Bone Clinic covers the entire range of therapies in foot and ankle surgery – all with adequate partners in orthopaedic technology. In order to leave nothing to chance when planning the therapy, a detailed foot surgery consultation is held after the diagnosis.

Of course, the spine is at the centre of mobility. So it should come as no surprise that the treatment of degenerative diseases and acute injuries of the spine receives special attention in the Clinic. In order to provide all patients with comprehensive treatment, the Bone Clinic takes the very best interdisciplinary approach. This includes cooperation with the neurologists, neurosurgeons, pain and physiotherapists at the Diako Mannheim.

The specialists at the Bone Clinic all have a high level of expertise – and enormous versatility. And yet they all have their designated areas of expertise – having focused in detail on these during their studies. Because today, more than ever, highly specialised doctors make a real difference in care.

Meet the team:

Dr med. Henning Röhl is Head Physician of the Bone Clinic. He is a specialist in orthopaedics and trauma surgery with the additional qualifications of special trauma surgery and special orthopaedic surgery. Dr Röhl is also the main surgeon and head of the Endoprosthesis Centre, which distinguishes him as an experienced specialist in this field. He is familiar with both the primary implantation of endoprostheses on the shoulder, hip, knee and ankle joints, as well as with the complex prosthesis exchange operations in the case of prosthesis loosening and prosthesis infections. As an orthopaedic surgeon and trauma surgeon, Dr Röhl can claim comprehensive knowledge of primary endoprosthetics and revision endoprosthetics and boast above-average operation figures in this field. He also specialises in the restoration of joint functions where patients might otherwise be at risk of stiffening. When it comes to accident surgery reconstructions or axis corrections on the extremities, his expertise is in demand nationwide.

Patrik Krol, Senior Physician at the Bone Clinic and Main Surgeon at the Endoprosthesis Centre, is a specialist in orthopaedics and trauma surgery and holds the additional title of special orthopaedic surgery. He has specialised in the fields of minimally invasive artificial joint replacement and prosthesis replacement operations on the shoulder, hip and knee joints. The highly experienced surgeon also has a high level of expertise in the field of joint-preserving arthroscopic surgery of the shoulder and knee joint. Another of his specialities is traumatology – the treatment of particularly complex bone fractures.

Dr med. Ralf Kotsch, Senior Physician at the Bone Clinic, is a specialist in surgery and trauma surgery with the additional title of special trauma surgery. At the Bone Clinic, Dr Kotsch heads the Centre for Geriatric Traumatology. His focus is on the complex trauma surgical care of the elderly. Thanks to his experience in this field, his specialised view and wealth of experience, the complex concomitant diseases of the elderly are also taken into account and treated accordingly in close cooperation with the accompanying internal medicine department.

Dr med. Sebastian Schmitt, Senior Physician at the Bone Clinic, is a specialist in orthopaedics and trauma surgery. At the Bone Clinic, he covers the entire spectrum of conservative and surgical therapy for the ankle and foot. He specialises not only in open surgery but also in arthroscopic minimally invasive therapy methods. Within his field of activity, Dr Schmitt looks after patients with diabetic foot syndrome, whose therapy he coordinates with corresponding specialist departments on an interdisciplinary basis – thereby ensuring all-round care. Complementary to this, Dr Schmitt is very familiar with arthroscopic and open surgery of the shoulder joint. In addition to accident surgery fracture care, he actively participates in the emergency medical service of the city of Mannheim.

Dr med. Jürgen Kaiser, Senior Physician at the Bone Clinic, is a specialist in orthopaedics and trauma surgery with the additional title of special orthopaedic surgery. His speciality is the treatment of acute injuries and degenerative complex diseases of the spine. Not only his
surgical skills, but also his strict indication, precise therapy and operation planning, as well as his close follow-up care of patients distinguish him in particular. Dr Kaiser's therapeutic skills cover the entire spectrum of spinal surgery, from conservative therapy to minimally invasive diagnostics and minimally invasive surgical procedures to complex positional corrections. In doing so, he can draw on his wealth of experience, which is far above average.

All these highly specialised physicians pursue essential common goals at the “Diako Mannheim”: The aim is always to achieve freedom from pain as quickly as possible and to restore the function of joints to a high level. And they all use biologically reconstructive procedures that cause little trauma in their orthopaedic and accident surgery therapies. The benchmark here is always surgical precision in perfection, based on therapeutic foresight.

The Bone Clinic’s speciality: joint replacement

So whether it's the shoulder, the spine or the hip, the foot or ankle, the arm or hand – in the Bone Clinic, patients benefit from a highly specialised team of experts who excel in absolute professional competence. This also rings true for joint replacement: endoprosthetics is always about restoring or maintaining the functionality and circulation of the body structures. With an enormous wealth of experience and combined expertise, the team around Dr med. Henning Röhl offers absolutely competent solutions – and, of course, precisely fitting prostheses that usually allow the greatest possible mobility after a very short time. When implanting artificial joints – especially at the large joints, and especially in complicated replacement situations of loosened or infected prostheses – the Bone Clinic reconstructs lost bone substance at the highest level.

Whether it is a long-planned therapy or acute accident surgery care – the field of activity of the Bone Clinic at the Diakonissenkrankenhaus Mannheim truly is broad. So it is good that you can rely on its versatility, commitment and tremendous experience. This applies not only to the team of highly specialised medical specialists, but also to the nurses and carers – and to all those who day after day in physical therapy, in patient administration and in social services lend vitality to the Bone Clinic’s holistic approach. Indeed, no detail is ignored in patient care – thanks to the expert direction of Head Physician Dr med. Henning Röhl.
