The Department of Orthopedics at the Orthopedic Center Munich East offers both conservative and surgical treatment options for all diseases, injuries and functional abnormalities of the musculoskeletal system. It uses the very latest treatments, such as acupuncture, autohemotherapy / PRP-therapy, shockwave therapy, K-Taping, etc. In the field of surgical treatment, the focus is placed on minimally invasive and endoscopic / arthroscopic operations. 

The department is headed by Prof. Dr. med. Peter Diehl. He is a recognized expert in orthopedics and traumatology, minimally invasive shoulder and knee joint surgery. The doctor participates in the development of modern and minimally invasive surgical techniques. Both national and international cooperation contribute to the fact that his patients receive medical services and information corresponding to the current state of scientific progress, in particular, in the field of stem-cell therapy. Dr. Peter Diehl is actively engaged in scientific activities and  has more than 100 publications in journals and books, as well as over 200 reports at conferences worldwide. The doctor has received many international prizes and awards for his outstanding achievements.

The department has a variety of conservative methods for the treatment of diseases of the joints, spinal column and pain therapy. The conservative treatment is provided on an outpatient basis. This involves the following methods: cartilage therapy (hyaluronic acid therapy), platelet-rich plasma therapy (with growth factors), shockwave therapy, infusion therapy (analgesic and anti-inflammatory).

Among other things, much attention is paid to shock wave therapy, which is a non-invasive method based on the use of high-frequency focused acoustic waves. With various forms of extracorporeal shock wave therapy, the specialists now make significant advances in the treatment of a large number of clinical pictures of the musculoskeletal system. First of all, this method is applied for the treatment of tennis elbow, calcified forearm, calcaneal spur, inflammation of the Achilles tendon and slow-healing bone fractures.

In the field of joint surgery (shoulder, hip, knee, elbow or ankle joint), the department gives preference to arthroscopic interventions (so-called keyhole surgery). In particular, arthroscopy is used for the treatment of cartilage defects, as well as for the removal of some parts of meniscus. During the procedure, the knee joint is washed and, if necessary, the fragments of the cartilaginous tissue that interfere with the joint are removed. As a rule, this procedure can be performed on an outpatient basis, so that the patient can go back home immediately after it. Today, minimally invasive arthroscopy is a standard surgical procedure for knee that basically leaves only 2-3 small scars on the sides of the knee. Likewise, most hip and knee replacement surgeries are performed with the use of a minimally invasive technique.
