Department of Trauma, Hand and Reconstructive Surgery (274450)
Specialized in: trauma, hand and reconstructive surgery
The Department of Trauma, Hand and Reconstructive Surgery at the University Hospital Jena under the direction of Prof. Dr. med. Gunther Hofmann is a maximum care medical center. The scope of the department's tasks includes the treatment of patients with polytrauma, pelvic surgery, endoprosthetics, cancer surgery, reconstructive surgery and hand surgery. The high quality of medical care is evidenced by the following certificates: "Interregional Trauma Center" (German Trauma Society (DGU)) and "EndoCert".
One of the main focuses is endoprosthetics, in particular, knee joint replacement surgery. The specialists of the department believe that not each arthrosis is an indication for joint replacement surgery. In certain cases, e.g. mildly pronounced or unilateral arthrosis, it is reasonable to perform either partial joint replacement or correcting osteotomy. As an academic center, the department has a broad range of various endoprosthetic models. When performing surgical interventions, surgeons use an auxiliary navigation system, which facilitates the most accurate endoprosthesis implantation.
