Helios Hospital Hildesheim
Department of Orthopedics and Traumatology
The Department of Orthopedics and Traumatology offers effective treatment for the patients suffering from musculoskeletal diseases and injuries of any severity. The department's doctors have in their arsenal both conservative and surgical treatment methods. The department's operating rooms are equipped with the very latest technology, and therefore most operations on the joints, bones, muscles, ligaments and other anatomical structures of the musculoskeletal system are performed using sparing minimally invasive surgical techniques. Such an approach allows the patients to more easily undergo treatment and recover after surgery as soon as possible. One of the key focuses of the department's clinical practice is joint replacement surgery. The medical facility has the most prestigious certificate in Germany in this field (endoCert) and has the status of the Maximum Care Endoprosthetics Center. The department's surgeons successfully perform surgery to replace hip, knee, shoulder, elbow and ankle joints, as well as revision interventions to replace worn-out endoprostheses. In addition, the department is recognized as a regional Trauma Center – its doctors provide effective treatment for all kinds of injuries, including multiple ones (polytrauma).
