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.
