In addition to endoprosthetic treatment, the competent orthopedics team also offers other services that concern the entire musculoskeletal system. These include joint-preserving interventions and conservative, i.e. non-surgical therapies, in order to avoid or delay the implantation of an artificial joint.
As specialists in endoprosthetics, the experienced surgeons implant replacements for the large joints. These include the so-called total hip endoprosthesis, total knee endoprosthesis as well as partial endoprostheses. Other special treatment focuses of the team also include hip arthroscopy or tibiaosteotomy.
Using these methods, the team in Münsterlingen can treat diseases such as hip arthrosis or diseases of the knee joint.
The endoprosthetics specialists in Muensterlingen always work at the highest technical level. Both in conservative and surgical treatments. The safety and well-being of the patient is always the top priority. Especially the prosthetics of the sacroiliac joint to treat osteoarthritis is a specialty in Muensterlingen. The symptoms of this condition must be distinguished from those affecting the lumbar spine. The pain caused by osteoarthritis of the sacroiliac joint is comparable to pain in the intervertebral discs or so-called nerve pain. The causes of pain in the sacroiliac joint are manifold and can be caused, for example, by instability of the ligaments, muscular weakness or as a result of an accident.
The therapy used by the team includes conservative measures such as physiotherapy in combination with anti-inflammatory drugs. Special belts are used for instabilities and the administration of cortisone is also considered a conservative method.
Only if the pain caused by the osteoarthritis of the sacroiliac joint continues to be severe and leads to severe disabilities, the team will consider a surgical intervention. In this surgical method, the barely movable sacroiliac joint is immobilized, which is considered a good treatment alternative to those mentioned before.
