Personalised care for young and old
Hip complaints have a variety of possible causes. A detailed clinical examination and precise radiological clarification is the basic prerequisite for diagnosis. Wherever possible, conservative (non-surgical) treatments are used first (physiotherapy, manual therapy).
If conservative measures do not show the desired success or are not advisable, an operation can possibly solve your problem.
Whether it is age-related wear and tear or an injury caused by an accident, we cover the entire spectrum of hip surgery. In addition, all operations are minimally invasive, i.e. using a gentle technique without damaging muscles or tendons. This should enable all patients to return to their daily routine, their accustomed life, work or exercise as quickly as possible.
To achieve this, the surgeon always provides the patient with detailed information. Multimodal anaesthesia is performed during the operation. After the operation, rapid mobilisation by our highly trained physiotherapists is important.
In the case of advanced arthrosis, many patients are plagued by pain despite intensive physiotherapy. If clinically and radiologically other causes of pain are excluded, minimally invasive joint replacement is recommended. This procedure is carried out via an anterior (anterior) access without detachment of muscles or tendons.
In 50-60% of the cases, an incarceration syndrome of the hip (femoroacetabular impingement) is the cause of wear and tear of the hip joint. As long as the wear and tear of the cartilage is not too far advanced, one can try to preserve the hip joint, to extend its "life span". This can be done by arthroscopic surgery, which corrects the causal bone deformity and repairs the existing cartilage damage. It may also slow down or even stop further damage to the joint as well as avoid or delay a joint replacement.
