Overview of services offered in Arthroplasty
Depending on the patient’s age and degree of physical activity, various artificial joint models are used. Any malposition can be corrected during the same procedure. Minimally invasive techniques are used for both hip replacement and partial knee joint replacement. Computer-assisted navigation is an integral part of artificial joint implantation, and the materials used comply with the highest standards.
Shoulder joint replacement
Depending on the patient’s age and degree of physical activity as well as the extent of joint damage, shoulder surgery employs various replacement techniques, ranging from condyle replacement to what is referred to “reverse shoulder replacement”.
Hip joint replacement
A fracture of the femoral neck frequently gives rise to hip problems. If – due to the patient’s age or the degree of joint wear – stabilization via screws is no longer possible, the implantation of an artificial joint is the method of choice. Depending on the patient’s age, bone condition and degree of physical activity, various replacement techniques, such as cementless or cemented prostheses, are employed.
Knee joint replacement
The treatment methods for knee diseases include partial and total joint replacement. When implanted correctly, a prosthesis can reach a service life of more than 15 years. Again, our primary goal is to preserve the joint as much as possible; in the event of considerable wear, however, the implantation of a total artificial knee joint is reasonable.
Depending on the patient’s age, bone condition, axial malalignment and degree of physical activity, various replacement techniques, such as surface replacement or axis-guided prostheses, are employed. The artificial joints are implanted using advanced computer-assisted navigation techniques.
