Centres for Orthopaedics

Orthopaedics deals with acute and chronic diseases and malformations of the musculoskeletal system. This includes the bones, joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments.

The most common joint disease is osteoarthritis, a progressive loss of cartilage that leads to increased joint pain and impaired movement over the course of the disease. Symptoms can be kept under control with modern therapy options. An early start to treatment may delay the progression of the disease and thus avoid the need for an artificial joint to be implanted. If conservative therapies fail to achieve the desired results and the pain and impairments significantly reduce the patient’s quality of life, surgical intervention may need to be considered. This includes joint arthroscopy, joint-preserving surgery or replacement with an artificial joint.

Our centres

With its two joint practices – the Gelenkzentrum and the Arthrose Clinic – the Privatklinik Bethanien has several specialists in residence who look after the shoulder, hip, elbow, knee, ankle or joints in the foot, with the aim of relieving pain and restoring mobility. Western surgery is combined with acupuncture from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
