Hospital Lindberg Winterthur
Department of Orthopedic Surgery and Traumatology (260)
Specialized in: orthopedic surgery, traumatology
The Department of Orthopedic Surgery and Traumatology at the Multispecialty Hospital Lindberg under the lead of Dr. med. Barna Boldog treats congenital and acquired diseases, injuries and inflammations of all parts of the musculoskeletal system and spine. These include bones and joints, ligaments, tendons and muscles which are responsible for movements.
The orthopedic team of the Department around Dr. med. Barna Boldog offers treatment for a broad range of clinical cases: limbs bone and spine fractures, joint dislocations, muscle strains, bone tumors and infections as well as advanced arthroses (knee and/or knee joint), in which the joint is totally or partially replaced with a prosthesis.
A focal point of the Department is treatment of patients with knee complains. If conservative means cannot provide a sufficient result in case of arthrosis, joint-preserving surgeries and artificial knee joints placements can be performed. These options ensure reliable pain relief, a better joint flexibility and a more secure walking ability. Depending on the extent and position of the wear of the joint, joint parts (so-called unicompartmental sliding prostheses), kneecaps-joints with friction bearing (femoropatellar prostheses) or surface joints (total knee prostheses) are implanted.
Due to approved surgical procedures and the state-of-the-art equipment, specialists of the Multispecialty Hospital Lindberg guarantee the high level of precision and the greatest possible safety to all patients of the Hospital.
