Dr. Moursy completed his residency at the Center for Orthopedics and Trauma Surgery at Mannheim University Hospital and the faculty of Heidelberg University in Germany. He then headed the shoulder and elbow section, highlighting his extensive experience and leadership skills. An experienced specialist in orthopedics and trauma surgery with the additional designations of traumatology and sports surgery, he is dedicated to specializing in the shoulder joint and elbow. It is fortunate for the people of Austria that they can find this proven high-performance physician at two locations at once. Because Associate Lecturer Dr. Moursy is available with his enormous expertise not only in the heart of Salzburg, but also in Vienna.
When a young medical institution has earned a reputation that extends far beyond the region in a very short time, there must be something special about it. In fact, its founder stands for a pioneering form of modern medicine: The experienced orthopedist focused on two joints early on and is therefore considered a prime example of a highly specialized expert. This means that anyone who has problems with the shoulder or elbow has absolute certainty: Here, patients are dealing with a specialist who is familiar with all the details of these joints and includes even the rarest and most complex diseases and injuries in his diagnosis from the very first contact.
Salzburg: Perfect location, pleasant atmosphere, great competence
Anyone who enters the premises of ORTHOCHECK in Salzburg is already taken by the beautiful surroundings. Directly at the Mirabellgarten with its unique baroque atmosphere is the highly modern and barrier-free surgery, in which Dr. med. univ. Mohamed Moursy offers his expertise gathered at the most renowned special clinics in the world, which he backs up with years of experience. He has been in the USA at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, in Reading, England, in France, Belgium and Italy.
Even though as a specialist he offers the entire spectrum of orthopedics, trauma and sports surgery - it is the shoulder and elbow for which he is particularly well known. Especially when the shoulder, our joint with the greatest freedom of movement of all, causes problems, this quickly affects the entire mobility. In order to achieve this high degree of mobility in the long term, a number of things have to be right - which is why injuries and diseases of the shoulder are usually associated with major challenges for the specialist. Whether high stress leads to shoulder pain, a muscle injury, an inflammation or even pathological changes in the shoulder bones, the joint capsule or the joint cartilage: Associate Lecturer Dr. med. univ. Mohamed Moursy quickly recognizes what is the issue with his trained eye. And he is just as familiar with the symptoms of arthritis, rheumatism and gout at university level as he is with an impingement syndrome, a rotator cuff injury or a calcified shoulder.
The elbow joint requires a high degree of specialization on the part of the treating physician, not only because of its proximity to the shoulder - numerous nerves and blood vessels are located in this region. From strain to dislocation to fracture, from arthritis to rheumatism: the shoulder and elbow also have many diseases and injuries in common. Associate Lecturer Dr. med. univ. Mohamed Moursy, as founder of the first special outpatient clinic for elbow surgery in the province of Salzburg at the University Clinic for Orthopedics and Traumatology, however, also has a great deal of experience with tennis elbow and golfer's elbow and other conditions, which comes into play particularly in complex surgical procedures on the elbow with its three partial joints.
Location Vienna: Elective medical practice in the medical center
With his elective medical practice in Vienna, Dr. Moursy also provides people in the Austrian capital with a top-class point of contact for all questions relating to the shoulder and elbow. As an active member of the DVSE Elbow Committee and holder of the DVSE Expert Certificate for Shoulder and Elbow Surgery, he makes a special contribution to the further development of the specialty. Here, in Vienna's first interdisciplinary medical center for exercise medicine, the focus is on sports orthopedics and sports medicine in addition to orthopedic surgery, but rheumatology is also an important topic here. As in Salzburg's ORTHOCHECK, the motto here is that from the onset of symptoms to recovery with mobility that is as pain-free as possible, the focus is on an interdisciplinary interaction of medical and therapeutic expertise - with a holistic approach and sufficient time in each treatment phase.
