Main focuses

Clinic for Orthopaedics and Accident Surgery: Foot surgery

In our clinic, we mainly treat people after accidents, with wear symptoms on hand and foot joints (arthrosis), nerve bottleneck syndromes on the wrist and rheumatic changes on the hand. Here we have compiled the most important information on these disorders.

Overview of specialist areas:

Arthrosis refers to joint wear beyond the age-related extent. The causes may be strain, malpositioning of the joints, bone disease or genetic pre-disposition.

Nerve bottleneck syndrome

With nerve bottleneck syndromes, surrounding tissue presses against the supplying nerves and thus damages them. The most well-known of them is carpal tunnel syndrome: Patients suffer from pain, feelings of numbness and a reduction of strength in the hand.

Rheumatoid arthritis is the most frequent inflammatory-rheumatic disorder: It is characterised by painful swellings of the joints and as it progresses leads to destruction of joints and increasing restriction of movement.
