Welcome to the Orthopedics Department at Heidelberg University Hospital
In our endoprosthetics division, we supply approximately 1,200 patients each year with artificial knee and hip joints. Our experienced surgical staff can restore function and mobility by implanting an endoprosthesis.
Depending on your personal situation and diagnosis, various implants, anchoring methods, and surgical techniques are available. We take the time to discuss all the details of these options with you. Based upon our extensive surgical experience, attention to testing for surgical indications, and thorough post-operative care, excellent long term results of 15 years or more can be expected; over 90 percent of our patients are able to move again without pain after their surgical treatment.
Excellent surgical techniques, well-tolerated materials, and specialized physicians also help minimize the risks of surgery. In addition, we plan each surgery on an individualized basis, and with great care.
We specialize in implanting
- artificial knee joints,
- and artificial hip joints.
