Specialized in: foot surgery
About the department
The Department of Foot Surgery at the Academic Hospital Schlosspark Berlin offers the full range of medical services in this field. Particular focus is on the surgical correction of foot deformities. All interventions are performed in well-equipped operating rooms, in strict accordance with international surgical standards. Prior to treatment, the doctors carry out extensive consultations and X-ray diagnostics, which allow them to select the optimal therapeutic technique. The medical team aims to provide the patient with high-quality medical services and improve his quality of life, as pain in the foot is often associated with a significant limitation of a person's motor function.
The department is headed by Dr. med. Cornelius Salich. Thanks to his qualifications and successful long-term clinical practice, the specialist was awarded with the certificate of Expert Physician of the German Society for Foot Surgery. In addition, the prestigious Tagesspiegel Gesundheitsstadt Berlin newspaper recommends the doctor as the best specialist in hallux valgus treatment.
Depending on the complexity of the clinical case, surgery can be performed both on an inpatient and outpatient basis. In the case of inpatient treatment, the patient usually stays in the hospital for 2-3 days. Upon the operation completion, an X-ray examination is mandatory for the monitoring of the result of the intervention, and the patient will be prescribed a special course of physiotherapy for the restoration of foot mobility.
The department's range of medical services includes:
- Surgical correction of hallux valgus
- Surgical correction of hallux rigidus
- Surgical correction of hammer toes
- Surgical correction of Taylor deformation
- Surgical treatment of Morton's neuroma
- Surgical treatment of Haglund's syndrome
- Surgical treatment of other foot diseases and deformities
