A highly specialized center that offers "cutting-edge medicine and patient orientation" in the treatment of all diseases and injuries of the joints, as it says on its own website: PRAXISKLINIK 2000 Orthopedics in Freiburg im Breisgau gathers a top-class team of specialists with immense experience that treats joint pain and sports injuries seamlessly according to the latest scientific standards. Whether it's people with foot or knee problems, hand or shoulder pain, or a hip injury, here recreational athletes receive the same comprehensive medical care as professional athletes.
The fact that the renowned orthopedic practice clinic in the South Baden metropolis does not serve any common patterns can be seen as soon as you enter: A generously inviting room concept, which comes to fruition perfectly with well thought-out light structures, proves the clear orientation towards patients. It is immediately apparent that anyone who turns to the team of proven experts can feel that they are in good hands.
People with numerous problems of the musculoskeletal system turn to the Freiburg joint specialists. Whether it is a matter of joint instabilities at the knee and shoulder, degenerative or inflammatory damage such as advanced arthrosis at the knee, shoulder or hip joint, or whether it is a matter of foot problems and deformities - the renowned institution always strives for the best individual treatment. Both tried-and-tested procedures and modern therapies based on international developments are used.
Wherever possible, diseases of orthopedics and trauma surgery are treated without surgery. For this purpose, the team of specialists has a wide range of conservative therapies - from acupuncture to neural therapy or shock wave therapy to plasma injections or treatment with hyaluronic acid. In this way, the Freiburg practice clinic has repeatedly succeeded in delaying surgeries, often by years, even in cases of far-advanced diseases such as joint degeneration. This allows patients to continue using their own joints - as painlessly as possible and without restrictions. Therefore, the motto here is: surgical intervention is the last option for treating a disease - after all, it cannot be easily reversed.
Of course, not every disease can be treated conservatively. But at the PRAXISKLINIK 2000 Orthopedics, everyone is aware that a surgery is always a special challenge - for both sides. Therefore, the personal conversation is always the most important thing, in which the affected person is comprehensively informed about chances as well as risks. As a result, patients in Freiburg can always be sure that they will be treated by proven experts who have specialized in the particular condition - with clear advantages in terms of the prospects for success: The highly specialized approach guarantees that treatment is always of the highest standard and that therapy is based on the latest medical research.
