Dr Philipp Heuberer is a specialist in orthopaedics and orthopaedic surgery and is the proprietor of the Dr Heuberer & Heuberer Orthopaedics, Regenerative Medicine and Evaluation Practice in Vienna. His focus, in particular, is shoulder and elbow surgery. In addition, he is designated President of the German Society for Arthroscopy and Joint Surgery.
Hence, Dr Heuberer is an established specialist in the effects of wear and tear, injuries and medical conditions of the human musculoskeletal system. A surgical procedure is not always required here, however; conservative treatments can also be very effective and successful. Today, if surgery is required, Dr Heuberer can frequently perform this minimally invasively by means of arthroscopy. As a result, tissue damage is minor and the patient recovers again more rapidly from the procedure. More and more, arthroscopy enables further advances in reconstructive surgery. Employing an artificial joint, then, can more frequently be avoided.
Nor does research stand still in the field of endoprosthetics. The joint specialist, Dr Heuberer, uses certified prostheses, in which only the highest quality materials are used. These continue to achieve better quality in terms of stability, tolerance and reliability. In the process, the surgical application of an artificial joint no longer represents as great a burden for the patient as it still did just a few years ago. Gentle procedures enable more rapid healing, a substantial improvement in the quality of life due to a greater freedom of movement and, after the regeneration, even athletic activity. The concern of Dr Heuberer in Vienna is invariably to assist his patients to achieve this goal.
The Viennese shoulder specialist, Dr Heuberer, has also been a judicially sworn and general certified referee for orthopaedics and orthopaedic surgery in the specialist field of shoulder and elbow surgery since 2016. As a medical consultant on behalf of the courts, insurance companies or legal practitioners, he assesses orthopaedic conditions or injuries and supports these bodies in their decision-making, for example, in matters involving physical injuries or mistreatment.
Minimally invasive and reconstructive surgery
Whenever possible, we strive to preserve the patient’s own joint for as long as possible. Development and implementation of a large number of new and minimally invasive techniques for the restoration of joint function, such as:
arthroscopic joint replacement – Partial Eclipse,
knot-free anatomical reconstruction of the rotator cuff – Cinch Bridge technique;
knot-free anatomical reconstruction for shoulder instability – Labral Bridge technique,
restoration of the glenoid anatomy for shoulder instability – arthroscopic J-Span technique,
ligament surgery for elbow instability due to overlooked tennis elbow
