About us Dr. med. Ralf Theermann
If you are looking for a specialist in orthopedic surgery in Hamburg, you will quickly find two outstanding addresses: on the one hand, there is the Helios ENDO-Klinik, Europe’s largest specialized endoprosthetics, sports orthopedics and spinal surgery clinic. On the other hand, the city on the Elbe also hosts the Muehlenkamp Orthopedics Healthcare Center, which has a great number of convincing arguments in its favor in trauma surgery, rheumatology and sports medicine. The good news for the patient is that both facilities are closely linked together because an outstanding specialist at both facilities contributes to their extensive national reputation as the Executive Physician and Medical Director: Dr. Ralf Theermann.
Dr. Ralf Theermann has made a name for himself in multiple specialized fields. Initially, he specialized in arthroscopic and open shoulder and elbow surgery, which also includes endoprosthetics in this field of activity. Likewise, he focuses on arthroscopic surgery to the knee and to the ligaments of the knee, as well as surgery to the cartilages. No wonder that his expertise enriches two first-class clinics with the highest quality at the same time.
Versatile specializations and additional training
His constant endeavors to deepen his specialization have already involved a number of additional qualifications and approvals. And so, he ranks as an outstanding specialist, not only in the fields of orthopedics and trauma surgery but also in such fields as rheumatology and special orthopedic surgery. A number of certificates and diplomas attest to his exceptional range of expertise.
Dr. Ralf Theermann has already been closely associated with the present Muehlenkamp Orthopedics Healthcare Center in Hamburg, which specializes in innovative treatment concepts within conservative as well as surgical orthopedics, for a number of years. In 1991, the year if its founding, he became a partner in the orthopedic joint practice. At the time, he had just arrived in Hamburg from Munich, where he had been employed at the Ludwig Maximilian University as a Resident in the University Orthopedics Clinic and in the Department of Rheumatology of the LMU. He then worked at the Muehlenkamp Orthopedics Clinic as an in-patient physician and visiting physician for a long period, until he ultimately assumed the position of Medical Director in the summer of 2018, when the facility was certified as a Healthcare Center.
Healthcare Center: Strictly partnership-based specialization
As Medical Director, Dr. Theermann also maintains the concept of the specialized clinic: even in the surgical field, the specialist clinic fosters a strictly partnership-based specialization, which has enormous advantages for all patients because this guarantees that the team with the ideal specialization for the respective individual diagnosis is always called into action. If it is a matter of arthroscopic and open shoulder and elbow surgery or of knee surgery and particularly surgery to the ligaments of the knee, of course, that means Dr. Ralf Theermann himself.
Above all, out-patient and short-stay in-patient orthopedic, rheumatology, traumatology and sports medicine surgery is performed in the ENDO-Klinik. With Dr. Theermann as its Executive Physician, Europe’s largest specialized endoprosthetics, sports orthopedics and spinal surgery clinic has an established skilled practitioner who best suits the philosophy of the facility. Thanks to clear specialization, the patients here are given the highest quality medical care they could conceive of. In fact, the Helios ENDO-Klinik is the only officially recognized Center for Endoprosthetics in the whole of Germany.
So, patients can count on it: Dr. Theermann and his team will facilitate, inter alia, a top-class joint replacement, without equal across the globe. And in sports orthopedics, every patient is treated like a top athlete, even if it is “only” a matter of regaining mobility.
Individual treatment – only in this way are high expectations fulfilled
The support given by Dr. Ralf Theermann to his patients is always exceptional. This begins with the first consultation: already prior to the surgery, Dr. Theermann takes a great deal of time for his patients so that their high expectations can also be effectively fulfilled.
First-class expertise – constantly optimized
Whether the surgery is performed at the Helios ENDO-Klinik or at the Muehlenkamp Orthopedics Healthcare Center, whether it is a matter of a shoulder, knee or ligament, elbow or cartilage, Dr. Ralf Theermann invariably guarantees a high level of medical care. In order to optimize his first-class expertise, Dr. Theermann has already completed a number of additional training courses – and he relies on a solid network of specialized physicians, with whom he regularly exchanges views.
So Dr. Ralf Theermann, who studied and earned his doctoral degree in Munster, also serves as a specialist committee member of the Hamburg Medical Association. He is also a member of the leading organizations, such as the Professional Association for Orthopedics and Trauma Surgery (BVOU), the Federal German Outpatient Arthroscopy Association or the German Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Association. If you live in the metropolitan area of the city on the Elbe or you would like a consultation for a specific procedure in the metropolis of Hamburg, the ENDO-Klinik is the best within reach – and it also provides in-patient rehabilitation.
