Knee Specialist Dr Becher: “Knee Surgery is Often Not Necessary”
As orthopedist and sports physician, Dr Becher practices joint-preserving treatment of the knee-joint. Often, individually tailored conservative healing methods are sufficient to restore a pain-free functioning of the knee. Prior to each therapy, the comprehensive diagnosis bases on latest medical developments. Subsequently, a plan for medical care is specifically tailored to the individual patient`s needs by Dr Becher who holds certification in diagnostics and treatment of knee osteoarthritis.
State of the Art Knee Surgery in Heidelberg: "As Much as Necessary and as Little as Possible"
Dr Becher and his colleagues commit themselves to a qualified assessment of the knee-joint and best possible joint-preserving surgical methods. Many years of experience in knee surgery have proven doctors should preserve and maintain the joint’s own function as long as possible. For this purpose, surgical procedures of the leg axis correction, cartilage replacement processes, meniscus and ligament operations are available.
Knee Prosthesis Expert: "If possible, Apply Partial Implant Prosthesis"
Depending on the specific condition of the knee-joint, if a joint-preserving therapy can no longer be useful, Dr Becher will insert a partial or full prosthesis pending on the personal situation. Dr Becher offers many years of experience in artificial knee-joint implantation. He always strives for an ideal solution and determines the patient's specific needs.
Further Focal Points of Dr Becher's Work: "Ankle Joint and Achilles Tendon"
In addition to his outstanding experience in knee surgery and knee therapy, Dr Becher has extensive experience handling Achilles tendon diseases and ankle joint problems. As in the case of knee disorders, Dr Becher remains true to his philosophy of always striving for a conservative or joint-preserving therapy.
