Message from the clinic director
Orthopedic University Hospital and University Hospital for Trauma Surgery
Christoph Lohmann and Felix Walcher
The Clinic for Orthopedics and the Clinic for Trauma Surgery offer musculoskeletal care services in accordance with their treatment mission. What does this mean for you?
In addition to other emergencies such as tumors, infections, dislocations or periprosthetic fractures, acute painful inflammations of the joints - such as hip, knee, foot, elbow or shoulder - are also treated.
Furthermore, acute painful conditions of the spine with and without nerve loss are also treated. All sections of the spine are treated, i.e. cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine. We also work closely with the Department of Neurosurgery.
Similarly, various types of instabilities of joints should also be examined and treated if necessary.
In addition to acute injuries, it is also important to treat pain conditions that may lead to immobilization of the patient or require a high intake of painkillers - here it is important to reduce any resulting complications and their risks by means of adequate therapies.
Within the scope of care in the supra-regional trauma center and participation in the severely injured type procedure of the professional associations, the entire care of injuries, whether work accidents or private accidents up to polytrauma, is available.
During the corona crisis, elective interventions (such as metal removal) are critically considered together with the patients in the context of the need to save resources and, if necessary, postponed to a justifiable later date.
We thank you for your confidence.
