Clinic for Orthopaedics and Accident Surgery: Knee Department

Dear visitor,

The Clinic for Orthopaedics and Accident Surgery at the Waldkrankenhaus Eisenberg is a nationally and internationally recognised clinic for the treatment of orthopaedic disorders on the knee joint. Every year we treat almost a thousand patients with symptoms of wear of the knee joint (gonarthrosis), inflammatory joint disorders (rheumatic arthritis) or osteonecrosis (bone infarction). In addition, we help people with fractures after accidents or sports injuries.

Here we have a wide range of diagnostic methods: In addition to standards such as X-ray, ultrasound, MRI examinations and bone density measurements, if required we record the movement patterns of our patients with a digital gait analysis and can thus answer specific questions on diagnosis and therapy.

During treatment, our patients benefit from a wide range of conservative and operative possibilities: in addition to specific physiotherapy measures, we carry out corrective operations which should maintain the function of the joint as long as possible. Only when these measures to maintain the joint have been exhausted do we recommend an artificial knee joint to our patients.

Our hospital is one of the most experienced clinics in Germany in this field: Every year we perform around 900 total endoprosthetic operations including revisions on the knee. For several years, our doctors have also been using new methods for these operations as required, such as a computer-aided navigation system, which can optimise the operating results.

We would like to briefly introduce ourselves here: Thus you learn which ailments we mainly treat and which therapeutic methods we use for this. In addition, you meet the most important doctors and care personnel on our wards.
