About the department

The department of orthopaedics and orthopaedic surgery, joint replacement and sports traumatology at Beta Clinic Bonn focus on the disorders of the musculoskeletal system. New methods and techniques are constantly implemented. The department is the first practice in Germany to use the SkillCourt for the screening and training of patients. In addition to strength and flexibility improvement with the SkillCourt, the brain is also trained. The department is equipped with two state-of-the-art Class 1 operating theatres with intraoperative 3D X-ray diagnostics. Postoperative monitoring occurs in the interdisciplinary monitoring station, where intensive care units are also available upon request. Whether before or after an operation, physiotherapy can be carried out in the rehabilitation centre Beta Sport & Reha.

Conditions prioritized by the department are congenital or acquired joint and extremity malpositions, sports injuries in children and adults, or degenerative joint diseases (arthrosis). Treatment is conservative (non-surgical) and surgical (outpatient and inpatient).
