About the department

The orthopaedics, trauma and spine surgery department at Nordwest Hospital Frankfurt am Main treats all diseases and injuries of the musculoskeletal system. The German Society for Trauma Surgery has certified the department as a regional trauma centre, so medical care for seriously injured patients meets the highest national and international standards. The prerequisites for optimal and effective care for severe injuries are highly qualified staff and cutting-edge equipment. The medical team, which consists of orthopedists, traumatologists and anesthesiologists, resuscitators, neurosurgeons, and vascular and thoracic surgeons, is on duty in the department around the clock. Treatment is provided for both adults and children. All operating rooms have state-of-the-art equipment, including an operating microscope, intraoperative representation in 3D technology and intraoperative X-ray control. Before surgery, surgeons use computer-assisted surgical planning.

The department's orthopaedists and traumatologists are proud of its rich clinical experience in treating diseases of the hand, foot, spine, knee and shoulder joints. The first-line treatment is conservative methods and drug therapy, and specialists only apply surgical treatment procedures in case of ineffectiveness. Open surgery is rarely performed, as surgeons prefer arthroscopic and minimally invasive interventions. In addition to the primary treatment, the department specialists prescribe physiotherapy, physiotherapy exercises and manual therapy.
