About the department
The Department of Orthopedic Rehabilitation at the MEDIAN Rehabilitation Clinic Bernkastel-Kues specializes in comprehensive rehabilitation of patients after diseases and injuries of the musculoskeletal system, including pathological lesions of bone and muscle tissues, joints. Prior to elaboration of an individual rehabilitation program, the department's doctors study the patient's medical history, carry out laboratory diagnostics, as well as X-ray and ultrasound examinations for the comprehensive assessment of the patient's musculoskeletal system. Such types of rehabilitation treatment as therapeutic exercises, physiotherapy, medical training therapy, ergotherapy, psychotherapy and others are successfully applied in clinical practice. The Chief Physician of the department is Dr. med. Slavi Evdokimov.
The main task of the department's doctors is to restore the patient's mobility and ensure his maximum independence in everyday life. During the entire therapeutic process, the doctors and nursing staff surround the patient with care, motivate him for achievement of the best results and return to his usual everyday life as soon as possible.
The therapeutic techniques and a set of procedures are selected for each patient individually, depending on the particular diagnosis, the patient's current condition and his rehabilitation potential. The department's specialists most often have to deal with the rehabilitation treatment of patients after joint replacement surgery and joint arthroplasty, surgery to treat spinal disc herniation, spinal fusion, as well as patients with arthrosis, osteoporosis, chronic pain and other pathologies.
