About the department
The Department of Trauma Surgery and Orthopedic Surgery at the Academic Hospital Eichsfeld under the direction of Dr. med. Axel Blasi offers a wide spectrum of medical services with a special focus on joint replacement surgery, minimally invasive surgery of large joints (arthroscopy), as well as hand and foot surgery.
Trauma surgery at the Academic Hospital Eichsfeld focuses on both acute injuries and long-term consequences of accidents. All the injured can receive first aid here, even patients with severe traumas / polytraumas. A team of experienced trauma surgeons is available 24 hours a day for this purpose. The Department is a certified Trauma Center and a member of the Trauma Association of Göttingen-Kassel. In cooperation with the Department of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine, there is provided both conservative and surgical treatment of all injuries and bone fractures in childhood.
In the field of orthopedics, the Department under the direction of Dr. med. Axel Blasi is focused on the repair of worn joints (shoulder, hip, knee), as well as hand and foot surgery. In addition to artificial joint replacement surgery, the Department also applies the methods that can activate the most of the body's own resources for restoration. In particular, doctors always check whether it will be possible to achieve a lasting improvement of the patient’s condition by means of corrective surgery (e.g. axial correction of bone deformities). Thus, patients can avoid artificial joint implantation.
If conservative measures are ineffective and there is no need to perform a major surgery, doctors will use arthroscopy. Shoulder surgery is another focus of the Department.
