The Department of Orthopedics and Traumatology at the Sana Hospital Duisburg under the direction of Dr. med. Christian Rülander is a maximum care medical center and specializes not only in traumatology, but also in arthroplasty, especially in knee and hip replacement. There are annually performed from 50 up to 100 operations to implant knee joint and about 100 hip replacements, especially in elderly patients. Hip replacement is preferably performed by means of conservative standard methods. 

The physicians of the Department under the direction of Dr. med. Christian Rülander have a long experience, especially in knee and hip replacement. Through the use of sparing techniques, in many cases joint function can be restored without any prosthetics. If surgery is necessary, the Department uses computer navigation to make a precise planning and axial correction. In addition, standard surgery also includes revision operations in case of loose prostheses and unstable joints in order to replace some components or to make a total prosthesis replacement. The Sana Hospital Duisburg uses the most advanced minimally invasive techniques to perform arthroplasty.
