About us

Prof. Norbert Lindner is a specialist in Orthopedics and Accident Surgery, Special Orthopedic Surgery, Sports Medicine, Chirotherapy, Pediatric Orthopedics, Physical Medicine and, as its Chief Physician, heads the Department of Orthopedics, Special Orthopedic Surgery and Sports Medicine at the St. Josef Bruederkrankenhaus in Paderborn. In the specialist field of orthopedics, the Department provides a wide range of diagnostic and therapeutic services.

Its focus is on the implantation of artificial hip, shoulder and knee joints, together with follow-up procedures for these, such as in the course of replacement surgery. Here, Prof. Lindner and his competent specialist colleagues rely on minimal invasive techniques whenever possible since performing these is particularly gentle for the patient. Thanks to the comprehensive expertise in the field of endoprosthetics at the St. Josef Bruederkrankenhaus, the Department of Orthopedics, Special Orthopedic Surgery and Sports Medicine has been awarded the Endocert Seal of Quality and has thus achieved certification as a Maximum Care Endoprosthetics Center.

Thanks to this very high endoprosthetics certification standard, Prof. Lindner, as the Chief Surgeon, and his team demonstrate their high level of competence, which is necessary in order to be able to meet the very strict quality requirements of the German Orthopedics and Orthopedic Surgery Association (DGOOC), the Endoprosthetics Working Group (AE) and the Professional Association of Orthopedic and Accident Surgery Specialists (BVOU). By means of the Endocert certificate, the services and results of different endoprosthetics centers can be compared. Maximum care endoprosthetics centers such as the Department of Orthopedics, Special Orthopedic Surgery and Sports Medicine at the St. Josef Bruederkrankenhaus in Paderborn attest a high number of endoprosthetics procedures annually, have a high success rate and document each process transparently and accountably. Thus, patients can be confident of being able to benefit from the wide experience of their surgeons. Further emphases of the Department of Orthopedics, Special Orthopedic Surgery and Sports Medicine alongside endoprosthetics are also sports medical procedures including minimal invasive joint inspection, surgery to the forefoot, the treatment of shoulder conditions, as well as tumor orthopedics.

Although primary bone and soft tissue tumors represent a relatively small proportion of all cancer conditions, bone metastases can also lead to bony instability and, ultimately, to death. Today, however, thanks to intensive cancer research, it is also possible, with the aid of suitable therapeutic approaches, to achieve a substantial tumor-free status. Benign tumors of the musculoskeletal system also occur, which require no special treatment. The investigation of a growth and the development of a treatment require multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary collaboration, which functions outstandingly at the St. Joseph Bruederkrankenhaus in Paderborn.
