About us

Joint conditions and injuries often have varied backgrounds and affect the entire musculoskeletal system. So the combined competence of specialized physicians and therapists helps patients quickly to be able to walk through life again, active and able to move. Located in the restful Lower Bavarian Spa Triangle, the Asklepios St. Wolfgang Hospital, as a specialized hospital, provides a comprehensive range of treatments for patients of the Department of Orthopedics and Sports Medicine. The Medical Director of the Orthopedics Department, Dr. Heinz-Juergen Eichhorn, is an internationally renowned physician. The sports physician and orthopedic surgeon Dr. Eichhorn is an acknowledged knee joint specialist. With his longstanding medical experience and specialist orthopedic expertise, the former competitive handball player today also treats many international top athletes. The same major objective applies for all of his patients: the best possible patient satisfaction and the restoration of mobility and quality of life. As a pioneer in interdisciplinary specialist collaboration, Dr. Eichhorn not only cofounded the orthopedic-surgical joint practice (OGP) but also the ideally networked orthopedic-surgical center of excellence, “sporthopaedicum”. The medical coalition can look back on longstanding experience in the treatment of conditions of the spinal column and of all joints.

Dr. Eichhorn also merges theory and practice in the operating room by utilizing mainly self-developed instruments in his procedures (such as double-bundle navigation), himself. Whether for accidents and injuries or degenerative wear conditions such as osteoarthritis, cartilage damage, meniscal injury or cruciate ligament and lateral ligament tears of the knee joint, Dr. Eichhorn and his team of specialist physicians in the Orthopedic Department of the Asklepios St. Wolfgang Hospital provide their patients with holistic therapeutic concepts. Right from the outset of the patient’s hospital stay, these include the precise diagnosis, targeted surgery and controlled follow-up rehabilitation care. Surgical procedures are performed as gently as possible and minimal invasive surgery is also employed. Thanks to the extensive range of conservative treatment, physical therapy and alternative therapies, in addition to the highly qualified orthopedic treatment, patients at St. Wolfgang will find beneficial convalescence for body and mind under one roof. Since the hospital employs its own physical therapists and qualified sports instructors for the customized therapy design, a longer in-patient rehabilitation following the surgery is generally no longer required. Postoperative follow-up treatment (AHB) can be directly incorporated as required in the same location. The St. Wolfgang Specialist Orthopedics Hospital provides its patients with an optimal balance between rest and recovery-promoting activity. This is represented by therapy in multiple segments, which, with their evenly distributed workouts, prevent overload and mental underload. In this way, a rapid return to their daily routine is made possible for the patients at St. Wolfgang.
