According to the Focus magazine, the Department of Orthopedics and Traumatology at the University Hospital Marburg UKGM ranks among the top German medical facilities specializing in the treatment of injuries of any severity!
The department offers the full range of diagnostic and therapeutic services to patients with diseases and injuries of the musculoskeletal system. The department has been certified by the German Society of Traumatology as a supra-regional Trauma Center. In addition, the medical institution is a certified Center for Gerontological Traumatology, the Center for Arthroscopy and Joint Surgery. The department is headed by Prof. Dr. med.
