Shoulder and elbow surgery

The shoulder and elbow surgery field has evolved enormously in recent years. There are currently a variety of different available techniques, that usually enable our team of specialists to offer patients with shoulder and elbow pain a high degree of painlessness, mobility and independence.

An accurate diagnosis is essential to ensure optimal treatment. This requires a prompt examination by one of our specialists in the shoulder and elbow joint surgery department. We also deploy a range of state-of-the-art imaging techniques.

We offer a broad range of surgical procedures for the reconstruction of torn tendons and ligaments, but also for instabilities and signs of wear and tear. Most treatments can be performed by arthroscopy, i.e. with keyhole surgery. If the shoulder or elbow joint cannot be preserved because of wear and tear (osteoarthritis of the shoulder or elbow joint) or due to a complex fracture, modern implants can be used to replace the joint. Our orthopaedic surgeons' high degree of specialisation and many years of experience mean that we can guarantee the provision of highly specialised care.
