Is Helios Hospital Attendorn a good place for knee or hip replacement?
For the department of orthopaedics, joint replacement at the hip, knee, shoulder and elbow joints is a core competency with about 400 surgeries per year. In addition, the clinic is certified as an endoprosthesis centre and has met the high requirements of the society for orthopaedics.
Can I have rehabilitation after my surgery in the clinic?
After the operation, the physiotherapists start mobilizing the patient as soon as possible and provide physiotherapy for inpatients for over ten years. The basic concept is to begin physiotherapy already in a hospital bed, which significantly speeds up the rehabilitation process.
