The patient was treated of habitual dislocation of the shoulder

Operation Laterzhe to eliminate habitual dislocation For 10 years I suffered from the usual dislocation of the shoulder joint - damage to the card. In early March of 2019, after another dislocation, I decided that it was time to get rid of this ailment and immediately began searching for the clinic. Moreover, I wanted to find the best surgeon and the best clinic where I would receive high-quality care. Bookimed Somewhere in 2-3 hours after I left a request on the bookimed site, Maxim Voloshin contacted me and we discussed my situation in great detail with him - we talked, I must say, for about 20-30 minutes. After the conversation, I began to collect all the necessary analyzes - MRI and CT. On readiness, he sent them to Maxim, and he, in turn, sent requests to pre-arranged clinics. During the week, plans of operations and their cost from all clinics were received. Maxim and I chose the most adequate clique in our opinion, which showed a truly individual approach exactly to my shoulder. I want to note that Maxim was always in touch, even on Sunday he gave me 15-20 minutes of communication, which I must say is very nice. About Helios Krefeld in more detail: room I went to the operation with a girl, so we chose a comfortable room with additional accommodation. Extremely comfortable, with its own toilet, shower, sink. Very reminiscent of the standard hotel room Hilton :) Food A huge range of dishes, you choose what you eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner. In addition, in the lobby there is a coffee machine and tea with fruit, sometimes there are desserts. Care I liked very much that they are really watching you. No need to run around the clinic to pass some kind of analysis and stand in queues. Upon arrival, right in my room they took blood for analysis, checked the pressure and temperature. Then I was recorded for a conversation with an anastasiologist and for regentgen. No queues - you are called to the appointed time. Later there was a conversation about the operation, where they explained to me what they would do and how. The next morning, I had an operation, but after that I was also observed for 4 days. At the moment, 3 weeks have passed since the operation, and I can already draw some conclusions about its quality. Already now I can do those exercises that according to the plan only after 3-4 weeks, which is very cool in my opinion. The pains of the movements go away and the freedom of movement returns. If I knew that everything could pass so easily and naturally, I would have performed the operation 3-5 years ago. Thanks to Professor Clayton N.Kraft and Operating Surgeon Klaus Sternemann

The patient was treated of coxarthrosis

I wanted to mention separately the responsive employee who helped everyone in everything and everywhere, without leaving a single question without attention - Varvara Avotinsh (if I do not confuse her last name). The Germans, of course, great. In this clinic, they don’t take it for sure. A couple of weeks after discharge, I received a final bill in which I was informed that there was a balance following the expenses, and it turned out to be not small)) of course, I was very bribed. Besides the fact that the operation, ugh, ugh was successful, and the recovery is fast, I made sure that money in this clinic is not put in the first place. In general, I am not afraid to recommend. Well, at least that hip arthroplasty can be trusted to Dr. Kraft.

Main features of orthopedics treatment in Germany

Germany takes the leading place in the quality of medical services and the application of new techniques in the field of orthopedics and traumatology.

80% of adults feel the back pain during their lives. No wonder why orthopedics in Germany are in the top of leading directions of German healthcare system. German specialists perform complex spinal operations with the help of minimally invasive methods under the video control.

The set is one of the most effective in the world: 65% of patients after the treatment get an improvement.

Diagnostics of orthopedic and traumatology injuries in German clinics:

Before a final diagnosis and prescribing the necessary treatment, German orthopedists provide diagnostics which include:

  • Clinical examination of a patient (a doctor evaluates the work of joints, tendons and muscles, mobility and amplitude of movements in the joints, the presence of changes in functions and so on);
  • X-ray studies (allow a doctor to see changes in bones tissue and cartilage and assess the degree of joint damage;
  • Computer and magnetic resonance imaging (show the smallest changes in the structure of muscles, tendons, ligaments and bones);
  • Arthroscopic examination of joints (visualization of the joint cavity using modern computer technology).


Treatment of orthopedic and traumatology diseases in German clinics:

The successful treatment of orthopedic diseases in German clinics is due to the comprehensive approach. The choice of the method of treatment depends on the nature of the illnesses, medical indications and recommendations of doctors. The priority method is the operation, but German specialists begin the treatment with non-surgical methods (manual therapy, osteopathy etc).

German orthopedic clinics and centers develop own methods of treating muscles, bones, joints, ligaments and tendons, which are adopted by specialists from all over the world.

Types of treatment that are carried out in orthopedic and traumatology departments and clinics in Germany

  • Minimally invasive treatment (carrying out arthroscopic operations on the joints and the locomotive apparatus);
  • Reconstructive surgery for the restoration of bone tissue and cartilage;
  • Open surgical operations on the joints and spine (in the cases of complex combination of injuries);
  • Endoprosthetics of joints;
  • Restorative treatment after orthopedic surgery.

Leading specialities of orthopedic and traumatology treatment in Germany

Sports medicine deals with the treatment of diseases and the consequences of sports injuries. It is a leading branch in the treatment of orthopedic diseases in Germany. Many world-famous athletes (Klitschko brothers, Steffi Graf) undergo treatment and preventive examinations in German orthopedic centers and clinics.

Sports traumatology in Germany is one of the leading directions of medical services. Government of Germany creates favourable conditions for development of sports traumatology and implementation of new technologies and methods of orthopedic treatment.

For the treatment of patients with sports diseases and injuries, German doctors apply:

  • Conservative therapy;
  • Operative methods of treatment (basically this is minimally invasive joint surgery - arthroscopy);
  • Intensive rehabilitation programs (a set of procedures for rehabilitation which include medicines, physiotherapy, massage and diet).


Endoprosthetics in Germany

Endoprosthetics of joints is a procedure of the replacement of the joint or its parts. Specialists provide endoprosthetics in cases when conservative and surgical methods of the treatment of orthopedic diseases is ineffective or in order to reduce the pain syndrome and improve the quality of life.

Orthopedists of German clinics offer to replace the joints of knee, hip, shoulder, ankle, hand and spine. Knee treatment in Germany is the most often type of the orthopedic medical care.

To choose the type of endoprosthetics, German doctors take into account many aspects of the patient's condition: age, weight, the type of disease and the nature of the patient's usual physical activity.

There are such types of endoprosthetics in Germany as:

  • Partial endoprosthetics (only a part of the damaged joint is replaced);
  • Superficial endoprosthetics (only the surface of the joint can be replaced);
  • Complete (total) endoprosthetics (replacement of all parts of the articulation with an artificial prosthesis);
  • Replacement of the previously established endoprosthesis.

German endoprosthesis are made from the modern materials (ceramics, alloys of steel, chromium, cobalt and titanium, which are coated with a biocompatible material, compatible with the human tissues). Most of them are modular and consist of replaceable parts. German implants are distinguished by high strength, wear resistance and can serve up to 25-30 years.

The patient was treated of arthrosis

The treatment took place in the orthopedic department of prof. Floating. After two operations in Russia, the condition of the knee only worsened. Conducted in the clinic of Solingen therapy relieved me of pain and restored the function of the knee joint. Many thanks to Maria for her help in the organization of treatment, selection of a specialist and support throughout the treatment.

The patient was treated of hip fracture

With a calm heart I can recommend the orthopedic department of the city clinical clinic in Solingen and especially its head prof. Floating. The situation before going to the clinic was critical. In Russia they refused to treat, all previous operations failed. During the therapy I was in good hands. Assistance was provided at any time of the day. All problems were solved quickly and competently. After a short enough time after the operation, I feel better, and I owe this not only to the professionalism of the doctors but also to the high level of organization of this trip. Very satisfied. Many thanks to all!

    Пациентка рассчитывала получить оперативное лечение в Германии. Результатом консультации с Проф. др. Мюллер (хирургия) явилось отсутствии показания к операции, что разочаровало пациентку. Консультации и обследования у Др. Шеффлера (ортопедия) и у Проф. Др. Панкоу (пульмонология) состоялись вовремя.

The patient underwent breast reduction

The team was just amazing! Everything went so quick and the procedure was done just next day up on my arrival. Airport Pick up and drop off organised and the hotel left me without a word. Abdul was so supportive all the way through: he will check on me every day to ensure that everything is fine and will remind me of my appointments and if he was there to answer any question I asked. Very good quality of care. I’m still recovering and trying to rest as much as I can. I definitely will recommend my relatives!
