About the department

The department of orthopaedic and traumatology at KCM Clinic Wroclaw offers a full range of diagnostic and therapeutic services to treat acute and degenerative diseases of the musculoskeletal system. The department has modern devices for magnetic resonance imaging and multislice computed tomography so that doctors can quickly and accurately make a diagnosis. When possible, doctors use conservative therapy but often use surgical interventions. The department performs knee and hip replacement surgeries, minimally invasive hip surgery, arthroscopy and reconstructive surgery. Doctors use world-class ARTHREX endoscopic medical equipment and ZIMMER implants. There is a rehabilitation team that provides comprehensive post-operative care and fast recovery.

The department's surgeons specialise in the treatment of autoimmune, degenerative, and infectious diseases of the musculoskeletal system and traumas and injuries. For example, patients may seek medical attention for pain in the knee, elbow or wrist joint, with damage to the menisci or cartilage. A caring medical team guarantees the high quality of the services provided following international standards.
