Specialized in: traumatology

The Department of Trauma Surgery at the Hannover Medical School under the lead of Prof. Dr. med. Christian Krettek offers a broad range of services: from medical care of patients with simple injuries – up to care of patients with complicated multiple trauma injuries and corrective operations. A special focus is put on treatment of oncological diseases of bones and soft tissues. Every year, more than 200 surgeries are performed in this field.

In particular, the Department encompasses a broad variety of operative methods in the area of knee joint treatment. Specialists of the Department carry out arthroscopic interventions, in which the surgeon is able to determine the situation of the joint through a small incision (key hole) by using a camera. In operative treatment, joint-preserving techniques are preferred (for instance, meniscal suturing, cruciate ligament replacement, cartilage transplantation as well as corrective osteotomies). If required, an artificial joint replacement is performed (by using various prosthesis types of the knee joint and its parts) as well as joint prosthesis replacement or revision surgeries.

Apart from that, the Department also offers such medical services as: hand and feet surgery, rheumatic orthopedics, sports trauma surgery, hip joint surgery (endoprosthetics), treatment of spinal column injuries, shoulder / elbow joint, bone extension, correction of deformities and care of severely injured patients.

  • Hand and foot surgery / rheumatic surgery
