About the department

The department of orthopaedics, accident surgery and endoprosthetic at Academic Hospital Koblenz-Montabaur has many years of experience treating all supporting and musculoskeletal system diseases - bones, joints, muscles, ligaments and tendons. Both acute injuries and chronic diseases are treated in the department following the most modern standards. A highly motivated team of specialised doctors and specially trained nursing staff treat 3,500 inpatients and over 17,000 outpatients in close cooperation with the radiology, anaesthesia and intensive care department. All patients receive holistic care, including individually tailored physiotherapy. Doctors treat both adults and children. According to the prestigious Focus magazine, the department ranks among the top German medical facilities specialising in treating orthopaedic diseases.

The department has a comprehensive range of operational services. These surgical treatment methods are completed by complex individual physiotherapy follow-up treatment in the therapy centre and outpatient rehabilitation. A particular focus is on geriatric traumatology, the specific care of osteoporotic bones, and older people's aftercare. In endoprosthetics, the department's specialists often have to deal with operations to replace the knee and hip joints. The spectrum is complemented by revision interventions, which are necessary in case of mechanical complications or displacement of the prosthesis.
