About us Prof. Dr. med. Gerald Zimmermann

Located in the middle of Mannheim, right next to the Collini Centre, is a top-class address for anyone who has problems with the musculoskeletal system. The orthopaedic private practice of Prof. Dr. med. Gerald Zimmermann inspires with a holistic approach that stands for two things in modern high-performance medicine: scientific progress with innovative therapies and an absolutely patient-oriented approach. As founder and head physician of the pioneering institution, Prof. Zimmermann has specialised in the preservation of joints - for example by developing complex transplantation methods for cartilage cells and new approaches in stem cell therapy. His motto is clear and unequivocal: The regeneration of the natural joint always takes centre stage!

With more than two and a half decades of experience in orthopaedics, over 12,000 operations performed, around ten years as head physician, Prof. Dr. med. Gerald Zimmermann is one of the proven specialists in his field. However, the experienced specialist has not only gained an excellent reputation through his successes in everyday clinical practice: After his habilitation at the University of Heidelberg, he was awarded the title of associate professor - with a teaching assignment through which he passes on his expertise to subsequent generations.

Prof. Zimmermann became internationally known above all for his important research findings - and for his successes in autologous cartilage cell transplantation. Since 2003, he has been using this method in the therapy of cartilage damage caused by injuries as well as for limited degenerative changes - in all joints. That made him one of the pioneers of this method, in which his private orthopaedic practice still occupies a leading position in Europe today with more than seventy transplants per year.

Regeneration in focus: Joint preservation even in critical cases

When it comes to joint preservation, Prof. Dr. med. Gerald Zimmermann always exhausts all conceivable possibilities. For many people who have already resigned themselves to a knee prosthesis due to an injury or illness, for example, this often opens up new hope: Can the joint actually be preserved through additive biological therapy options - with the result of regaining unrestricted pain-free mobility? In Mannheim, the chances are often very good - because it is precisely in this field that Prof. Zimmermann has dedicated himself to research and also application. Often this is even possible without surgery.

Special form of stem cell therapy - with special approval

The medical repertoire of Prof. Dr. med. Gerald Zimmermann also includes stem cell therapy, which can be used to treat osteoarthritis in the knee joint, hip or shoulder, for example. In this therapy, which uses the body's own stem cells, the specialist is one of the pioneers of a special form of treatment - the "SVF therapy". In 2017, Prof. Zimmermann received approval from the Baden-Württemberg Regional Council for stem cell therapy with the Stroma Vascular Fraction, a fat cell treatment established in the USA. Since then, it has become an integral part of his treatment spectrum for sports injuries and osteoarthritis - with impressive results, as evidenced by a study that highlights a "significant improvement in mobility and a reduction in pain".

Everything for joint preservation and regeneration - that is the motto in Mannheim, but of course not every joint can be preserved. It is particularly in such cases that it is good to be treated by a specialist who has tried everything - and has an extremely high level of expertise, especially in knee joint operations. With Prof. Zimmermann’s experience, patients of the orthopaedic private practice in Mannheim can expect equally wonderful results. In addition, he is always at the cutting edge of modern technology in the provision of artificial knee joints and knows exactly which solution offers the greatest possible mobility, such as the use of robotics and ceramic high-tech implants.

Biological cell therapy with the patient's own plasma and fat cells for the treatment of arthrosis, muscle and ligament injuries, cartilage cell transplants and a great deal of experience in knee surgery and knee endoprosthetics - with Prof. Dr. med. Gerald Zimmermann and his orthopaedic private practice, people in the Rhine-Neckar region have a real top address for innovative orthopaedics.
