Clinic for Orthopaedics and Accident Surgery: Hip Department

In our clinic we treat patients with various disorders of the hip joint. Our specialities include the treatment of patients with coxarthrosis, hip dysplasia and femoral head necrosis.

We also treat patients with other innate or acquired hip disorders, with complications after prosthetic implants or tumour diseases.

In addition, we treat patients with accident and sports injuries and their later consequences. Here we have compiled the most important information on these disorders.

Overview of main focuses:
Coxarthrosis
Hip joint arthrosis

Coxarthrosis (hip joint arthrosis) is one of the most common arthrosis forms: as the hip is subjected to loads when standing and walking which correspond to many times the body weight, wear symptoms also occur more frequently here than on the arms.

More information.


Hip dysplasia

Hip dysplasia is an innate dysgenesis of the hip joint which is already diagnosed and treated in new-born babies and infants. The acetabular socket in the pelvic bone is steeper and flatter than normal – it cannot therefore completely cover the femur head, the femur head only absorbs the load over a small area and is overloaded there.

More information.

Femoral head necrosis

By necrosis, doctors mean the diseased dying of tissue cells. With femoral head necrosis, the femoral head is insufficiently supplied with blood, parts of the femoral head are destroyed and in the course of the illness can lead to fracture of the surface of the head.
