About us

The Department of Orthopedics, Trauma and Reconstructive Surgery provides its patients with an advanced range of treatment options for all conceivable injuries and medical conditions of the human musculoskeletal system. Chief Physician Dr. Dietmar Kumm’s team is optimally trained and treats around 10,000 trauma surgery patients each year in the Surgical Emergency Room alone. Dr. Kumm has headed the Department of Orthopedics, Trauma and Reconstructive Surgery for around 15 years. He is a specialist in orthopedics, as well as in orthopedics and trauma surgery and is consequently highly competent in the treatment of musculoskeletal medical conditions and accidental injury to bones, muscles and joints. Dr. Kumm also heads the Department of Physical Medicine and Physical Therapy and the Department’s in-house bone transplantation bank. In an independent physicians’ evaluation portal, Dr. Kumm is invariably given the best grades by his patients, both in the evaluation of his competence and of his treatment success, and in empathy and kindness.

Each year, the specialists of the Department of Orthopedics, Trauma and Reconstructive Surgery implant over 500 artificial hip, knee and shoulder joints. Alongside the endoprosthetic treatment of the major joints, the service portfolio of Dr. Kumm and his team also includes the application of intervertebral disk prostheses. This procedure is performed extremely gently by means of minimal invasive surgery and the patient is already able to stand again the day after surgery. The procedure utilized relieves the patient of his disk-related pain and restores full mobility. Further emphases of the Department are pediatric orthopedics, tumor orthopedics and trauma medicine generally. Minimal invasive techniques, which cause the patient less stress and substantially reduce his hospitalization, are utilized for surgical procedures whenever possible. We have 75 beds available in the Department for in-patient accommodation. 12 physicians and numerous other optimally trained medical professionals are continuously on duty for you. DW295OU
