About the department

The department of orthopaedics, trauma surgery and sports medicine at Academic Hospital Sachsenhausen Frankfurt am Main specialises in treating patients with acute injuries and degenerative diseases of the musculoskeletal system. Surgeons always give preference to tissue-saving surgical interventions, minimally invasive techniques and surgical procedures, which make it possible to restore the functions of the organs as quickly as possible. The department is equipped with the latest MRI scanner, which allows for an accurate diagnosis without dangerous radiation exposure for the patient. Thanks to highly experienced surgeons, caring nursing staff and state-of-the-art equipment, medical care is provided following the latest national and international standards. 

The speciality of the department includes prosthetic replacements, fractures, and kyphoplasty. Kyphoplasty helps to restore the structure of damaged vertebrae and vertebral fractures. Above all, it helps to reduce the sensation of pain. The orthopaedic surgery department also offers a joint replacement to remove pieces of a joint with arthritis or injured joint and replace them with a prosthesis made of metal, plastic, or porcelain. In addition, doctors perform various replacements, including knee, hip, and shoulder replacements.
