About the department
The Department of Adult and Pediatric Trauma Surgery, Hand Surgery at the St. Remigius Hospital Opladen Leverkusen offers all therapeutic options for the treatment of injuries of any severity and their consequences. It deals with the treatment of injuries sustained at work, at school, during road traffic accidents and home accidents. The spectrum is complemented by the treatment of hand diseases, injuries and defects. Depending on the specific clinical case, both conservative and surgical methods can be applied. In addition, once treatment is completed, the patient will be offered the rehabilitation aimed at the functional restoration. The Chief Physician of the department is Dr. med. Peter Stolze.
The treatment of bone fractures in elderly people often poses difficult tasks for doctors. It should be noted that geriatric traumatology is one of the department's priorities. The main stage of treatment is followed by the training for relatives of elderly people on how to provide proper care at home. For excellent results in this field, the department is certified as the Center for Geriatric Traumatology by the German Trauma Society.
Another field of competence of the department's doctors is the treatment of injuries sustained during the accidents at work, at school or kindergarten, as well as their consequences. For this purpose, the department employs the best professionals with rich clinical experience. In addition, the medical team provides outpatient medical care around the clock for injuries caused by traffic accidents.
Hand surgery is also among the priorities of clinical practice. The spectrum of the department's medical services includes fractures, arthroses, nerve compression syndrome, trigger fingers, benign diseases of the connective tissue of the inner surface of the hand (Dupuytren's contracture), epicondylitis (tennis elbow, golfer's elbow), as well as congenital deformities. The department widely applies microsurgical interventions, minimally invasive surgeries, which are characterized by the minimal recovery period of the patient and low postoperative risks. Some operations of this range can also be performed on an outpatient basis.
A specially trained team of doctors is responsible for the treatment of hand injuries and defects in children. The specialists regularly demonstrate excellent results in the treatment of injuries in children, including in particularly complex clinical cases. Admission to the hospital for children and their parents is often associated with a number of difficulties, and therefore the department offers specially equipped patient rooms for children.
