Department of orthopaedic, trauma surgery and endoprosthesis

The department of orthopaedic, trauma surgery and endoprosthesis at St. Elisabethen Hospital Frankfurt am Main deals with the modern treatment of various musculoskeletal system diseases. With highly differentiated diagnostics, individual support from experienced specialists in the departments and active interdisciplinary collaboration as a backbone, the medical team offers patients professional medical care from a single source. The stated goal is always to restore the greatest possible freedom from pain and freedom of movement for patients after joint disease, especially in the shoulder, hip, knee, foot and ankle joints. Infants, young children, adolescents, and adults are treated up to old age. The department is also authorized and approved by the compulsory insurance system to treat accidents at school, at work, and road.

Doctors specialize in treating the pathology of the foot, spine, and degenerative, rheumatic diseases of the musculoskeletal system. Surgical treatment is always carried out only after all reasonable possibilities of conservative therapy have been exhausted and after individual acquaintance and consultation with the patient. For surgical interventions, modern operating rooms with clean air, tissue-friendly instruments and high-quality implants are available. Postoperative pain is treated closely with the in-house anaesthesia and intensive care unit.
