About the department

The Department of Trauma Surgery and Orthopedics at the Academic Teaching Hospital Luisenhospital of the Aachen University in Aachen under the direction of Dr. med. Fridtjof Trommer offers a wide range of treatment for the whole musculoskeletal system ranging from the ankle joint up to the spine. The service range of the department is complemented by the state-of-the-art medical equipment, such as navigation in the diagnosis / treatment of the knee joint or 3D image conversion systems that provide an accurate diagnosis and work processes with millimeter precision.

Among the key focuses of the department is the surgical treatment of injuries and diseases of the spine. In addition to classical spine stabilization operations and decompression interventions, there are also used minimally invasive and endoscopic treatment methods. The department can monitor the intervention by means of a 3D converter. Thus, it is possible to make an accurate implantation and to control the position of the implant – directly during the surgery. As a result, safety during the surgery is increased, while the number of radiological postoperative examinations is reduced.  

Another important focus of the department is the implantation of prostheses. The department is part of the certified Center for Endoprosthetics. This center offers the full range of joint replacement surgeries. A professional team of doctors of the department will accompany each patient starting from the moment of making a decision about prosthetics up to the postoperative rehabilitation. 

The service range of the department includes:

  • Cartilage repair
  • Spine surgery
  • Trauma surgery
  • Joint surgery and endoprosthetics
  • Foot surgery
  • Treatment of osteoporosis (osteology)
  • Trauma Association
  • and other diseases
