The department employs highly qualified staff and advanced equipment for the quick and competent treatment of both minor and severe injuries. The diagnostic and therapeutic services comply with the latest medical standards. Alongside comprehensive trauma management, the department particularly focuses on the surgical treatment of degenerative joint diseases by means of shoulder, hip and knee joint replacement. Another main therapeutic focus of the department is the application of arthroscopic techniques for the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of large joints (“keyhole surgeries”). Injuries and damage caused to the shoulder, knee, ankle and other joints by wear and excessive stress can be treated while preserving soft tissue to the greatest possible extent. In addition, Hand Surgery at Klinikum Landkreis Erding is integrated in the Department of Trauma and Orthopedic Surgery. Even minor injuries may involve substantial functional disorders. Aside from the consequences of accidents, degenerative diseases, rheumatism, spasticity and paralysis, congenital deformities as well as constricted nerves can diminish the function of hands.
