About the department

The Department of Orthopedics and Traumatology at the HELIOS University Hospital Wuppertal offers the full range of  treatment of injuries and diseases of the musculoskeletal system, including medical care for patients in life-threatening situations after accidents and sports injuries. The department specializes in shoulder surgery, treatment of arthrosis, joint inflammations, sports injuries, etc. The Chief Physician of the department is Dr. med. Armin Olaf Scholz.

In the treatment of injuries and diseases of the musculoskeletal system, preference is given to minimally invasive (arthroscopic) surgical techniques. In severe cases, for example, in severe forms of arthrosis or joint suppuration, arthroscopy  cannot be applied. Then the joint is opened and, in some cases, replaced by an artificial one. As a rule, many interventions are performed on an outpatient basis.
