Prof. Dr. med. Axel Hillmann - Head of the Department of Orthopedics and Traumatology and leading spesialist at the Center for Sarcoma and Musculoskeletal Tumors.

Prof. Hillmann masters a complex surgical procedure that allows patients to have greater mobility and a problem-free everyday life after a tumor removal on the leg: rotationplasty.

Rotationplasty is an alternative surgical procedure to limb sparing surgery. It is most commonly advocated for young patients with bone cancer. It has been undertaken in older patients and in other skeletal locations such as the hip and shoulder. For distal femoral tumours it involves removing the section of cancerous bone.

After such an operation, however, not only the body, but also the brain must be trained. Because the impulse, which is actually responsible for the ankle, now moves the prosthesis, which replaces the lower leg.

The patient was treated of strabismus

There was a slight misunderstanding in the treatment process; after a month, there was no apparatus for assessing visual acuity. At the consultation, we managed to ask all the questions we were interested in, but the consultation went very quickly, and in general we are satisfied.

The patient was treated of west syndrome

Good day. Thanks to Dmitry, because we closed our question through a Skype conference. Initially, we only needed a doctor’s consultation. As a result, we spoke precisely with the professor that we needed. And he answered all our questions.
