All surgical interventions are carried out, considering children's constant growth. Minimally invasive procedures such as arthroscopic and microsurgery are used for surgical treatment. When necessary, doctors also use pharmacotherapy, manual therapy and physiotherapy.
The highly qualified team of the department treats inflammatory, autoimmune and degenerative diseases of the knee and hip joint, foot and wrist, as well as the back. The department surgeons are proud of their success in hip and knee arthroplasty, replacement and revision of prostheses, treatment of oncological diseases of the musculoskeletal system, foot surgery and problems with the patella.
