The service range covers arthroscopy, bone interventions and endoprosthetic replacement surgery. The department performs about 900 joint replacement surgeries every year.

There is offered the entire spectrum of services in trauma surgery, including spine surgery, as well as interventions on the pelvic ring and acetabulum.

Another focus of the department is spine surgery for degenerative changes, such as herniated discs and strictures of the spinal canal. The standard treatments include microsurgical techniques (the use of an operating microscope with the appropriate instruments). 

The medical team of the Department of Trauma and Orthopedic Surgery has everything to treat both rare and common clinical pictures. In addition to the professional qualifications, the department, first of all, appreciates a warm human attitude and keen attention to patients.
