About us

The ENDO Clinic Hamburg is a specialist clinic for bone, joint, Sport and vertebral surgery and has achieved worldwide recognition by reason of its high expertise in the treatment of muscular-skeletal disorders.Since the founding of the ENDO Clinic in 1976, their doctors have implanted more than 165.00 joint prostheses. Every year, more than 7.000 people from all over the world place their trust in our medical know-how and the skills of our staff, which make this Clinic a special center of expertise. With many more than 8.200 endoprosthetic operations per year, the ENDO Clinic is the largest specialist clinic of its type in the world. With their specialist knowledge, their considerable experience and matching accuracy, their routine and their high quality standards, the staff all distinguish themselves by having as their supreme aim the well-being of our patients.

Diseases of the joints cannot only be very painful, but can also deprive us quickly of our freedom of movement and of our independence. It has been our task for more than 40 years to reestablish these. This represents teamwork between the patients, doctors, nurses and physiotherapists, and finally all staff members, who also work for our patients in the background. They contribute to the success of the treatment and thereby help the patients to regain (afresh) their zest for life. This task and our success in it give us the motivation to advance our effectiveness constantly in this specialized area of modern medicine.
