About the department

The Department of Orthopedics and Trauma Surgery at the Academic Hospital Schlosspark Berlin offers all modern therapeutic options for the treatment of various diseases and injuries of the musculoskeletal system. It has special competence in the field of hip and knee endoprosthetics, arthroscopic interventions on large joints, and correction of foot deformities. Also, an important clinical focus is the conservative and surgical treatment of spinal diseases. In the field of trauma surgery, particular attention is given to the surgical treatment of fractures and injuries of tendons and ligaments.

The department is headed by Prof. Dr. med. Ulrich Böhling. The specialist has long successful experience in the treatment of orthopedic pathologies and injuries of varying degrees of severity, has many additional qualifications to guarantee patients the optimal therapy result.

The surgical treatment is provided in state-of-the-art operating rooms equipped with high-precision computerized systems and instruments. For example, in joint replacement surgery crucial role is played by the most precise location of the implant and the surgical technique, which allows not to damage the surrounding healthy tissues. In the field of hip endoprosthetics, the department’s specialists prefer the innovative minimally invasive technique AMIS. During such an intervention, the surgeons manage to avoid cutting tendons and muscles, since the anatomical gap between the muscles is used to access the hip. The AMIS technique contributes to minimal scarring, which in turn simplifies and speeds up the process of patient’s rehabilitation.

Another department’s priority is spinal surgery. Herniated intervertebral discs and chronic lesions of the intervertebral discs are treated using high-precision neurosurgical operations with a surgical microscope. The doctors of the department have excellent qualifications in the treatment of spinal stenosis. The scope of tasks of the spinal surgeons also includes spine stabilization in spondylolisthesis, the treatment of spinal fractures, inflammations and tumors. The therapeutic options range from kyphoplasty, vertebroplasty to total vertebral body replacement with an implant.

  • Joint replacement surgery
