A wide range of chronic and acute injuries and diseases are treated at the University Hospital for Orthopedics. In addition to the classic orthopedic clinical pictures, one of the main focuses is on the care of sports orthopedic / traumatological clinical pictures. In sports medicine, we treat sports injuries and help athletes get moving again quickly. Sports medicine examinations and performance diagnostics are also part of our services.


From Acute Care to Rehabilitation

In the event of injury, misuse or overuse, the holistic care of professional or amateur athletes is essential. In the Department of Sports Medicine at the Orthopaedic University Hospital Magdeburg, we therefore focus on interdisciplinary care. We accompany our patients from acute care to the "Return-to-Play" test, also called "Return-to-Competition" test.

Within this framework, the Department of Sports Medicine offers a wide range of surgical treatments, such as.:

The Knee Joints


The Shoulder Joint

  • Impingement-Syndrome
  • Calcareous shoulder (Tendinits calcarea)
  • Rotator cuff lesion
  • Long biceps tendon injury (SLAP lesion)
  • Frozen Shoulder
  • Shoulder dislocation (luxation) and chronic shoulder instability
  • Shoulder corner joint dislocation


The Ankle Joint

  • Anterior and posterior impingement syndrome
  • Cartilage damage to the upper ankle joint
  • Chronic ankle instability
  • Syndesmosis injury


The Elbow Joints


Sports Medical Tests and Performance Diagnostics

Our services also include sports medicine tests. Individually tailored performance diagnostics help athletes minimize health risks and optimize physical performance with the right training. We also advise sports clubs as well as teams and athletes with and without disabilities from the national and international amateur and professional sectors.
