About the department
The Department of Orthopedics at the Orthopedic Center Munich East Munich offers the comprehensive diagnostics using high-precision imaging equipment, as well as conservative and surgical treatments for all diseases, injuries and functional limitations of the musculoskeletal system. The department uses the very latest treatment methods, such as acupuncture, autohemotherapy, PRP therapy, shockwave therapy, K-Taping therapy, etc. In the field of surgical treatment, the preference is always given to minimally invasive, endoscopic and arthroscopic operations.
The department is headed by Prof. Dr. med. Peter Diehl. He is a recognized expert in orthopedics and traumatology, as well as in minimally invasive shoulder and knee surgery. The doctor takes part in the development of modern and minimally invasive surgical methods. Thanks to national and international cooperation, his patients receive medical services, which correspond to the modern scientific level, in particular, 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 more than 200 reports at conferences around the world. He has received many international prizes and awards for his outstanding achievements.
The department offers many conservative treatments for joint and spinal diseases, as well as pain therapy. Conservative treatment is provided on an outpatient basis. For this purpose, hyaluronic acid with plasma-rich growth factor, shockwave therapy, infusion therapy (pain management and anti-inflammatory therapy) can be used.
Of particular interest is shockwave therapy. It is a non-invasive method, which is based on the use of high-frequency focused ultrasound waves. With various modes of extracorporeal shockwave therapy, the doctors use a significant success in the treatment of a large number of pathological lesions of the musculoskeletal system. First of all, this method is used to treat "tennis elbow", "frozen shoulder", heel spur, Achilles tendon inflammation and slow-healing bone fractures.
In the field of joint surgery (shoulder, hip, knee, elbow, ankle), the department's specialists prefer arthroscopic interventions (the so-called "keyhole surgery"). When performing such interventions, the surgeon removes some parts of the meniscus and damaged cartilage, and abundantly rinses the joint with saline. As a rule, the manipulation is performed on an outpatient basis, which allows the patient to return home on the same day. Nowadays, minimally invasive arthroscopy is the standard method for the surgical treatment of the knee joint. In most cases, only 2-3 small scars remain after the intervention. Most hip and knee surgeries can also be performed using minimally invasive techniques.
It is worth noting that the department is one of the few in Germany where the patients can undergo stem cell therapy. Prior to regenerative cellular therapy, the patient undergoes a complete examination for the detection of the causes and specificities of the disease, as well as for the assessment of the regenerative abilities of the body. According to the examination results, the doctor selects an individual treatment tactics and determine the possibility of using patient's own stem cells (autologous therapy) or the need to search for donor ones (allogeneic therapy). Each stage of stem cell therapy is personally monitored by the Chief Physician of the department, Prof. Peter Diehl. After the diagnostics, the doctor samples a small amount of the patient's fatty tissue. The obtained material is processed, after which stem cells are released from it. The preference is given to the use of the patient's own cells (autologous cells), as this eliminates the risk of autoimmune complications. Stem cell therapy gives good results in such diseases as osteonecrosis of the femoral head, arthrosis, pseudoarthrosis, damages or injuries of the tendons. Upon the procedure completion, the patient is accurately monitored by the department's specialists and undergoes a course of medical rehabilitation.
