About Dr Thomas Stock
Dr Thomas Stock is a specialist in orthopaedics and sports medicine with focus on endoprosthetics and foot surgery. He is Leading Physician in orthopaedics at the Cologne MediaPark Clinic. In addition to excellent medical care, his special guiding principle concentrates on treating patients with an open, personal, and trustworthy manner.
Dr Thomas Stock's activities as an instructor in the field of endoprosthetics, foot surgery (Arthrex, Stryker, DAF), and several non-surgical procedures emphasize his professional expertise.
Since Dr Stock's team consists of varied specialists, they are capable to offer a wide range of services at the highest level. Treatment focus includes conservative and surgical therapy of acute and degenerative muscle, tendon and ligament injuries, joint problems, as well as sports accidents.
Experienced Specialist in Implantation of Artificial Hip and Knee Joints
Osteoarthritis refers to wearing of the joints and is caused, among other things, by long-term improper strain or injuries. Dr Stock’s speciality is arthrosis surgery and endoprosthetics. He reduces patients’ pain and gets back fullest possible joint function, thus improving quality of life. During this surgical procedure, the individually adapted prostheses are precisely positioned and fixed in a minimally invasive way. Fixation can be achieved either through cementation or by using the so called "press-fit technique" where the bone grows into the prosthesis.
When joint replacement is necessary, today's patients no longer just wish to be able to resume daily activities free of pain but also to return to sporting activities. In order to be able to give his approval for certain sports, Dr Stock also uses biomechanical movement analyses in order to be able to identify improper load distributions or joint overstraining objectively from an early stage on or ideally, to even rule them out altogether.
Expert in Foot Surgery in Cologne
Abnormal biomechanical stress on the foot, unfavourable hereditary factors or neuromuscular changes can lead to foot deformities. Hallux valgus (deformity of the big toe) for example, can lead to limited movement as well as to pain. After non-surgical therapy, Dr Stock and his team at the MediaPark Cologne offer various extensive surgical techniques for optimal therapeutic success, including procedures on both soft tissue and bone. Dr Stock performs both, corrective surgeries (according to Reverdin) as well as larger hallux valgus deformities with the splayfoot osteotomy procedure (SFO surgery). By applying joint-stiffening lapidus surgery, he fixes arthrosis, instability of the joint, and severe misalignments with the use of special angle-stable plates.
Team Physician in Professional Sports
Providing orthopaedic care to international competitive athletes requires knowledge of new trends in orthopaedics and sports medicine as well as the ability to understand and evaluate scientific operating principles. Dr Thomas Stock has been active as the team physician for the Kölner Haie (Cologne Sharks) at the German Ice Hockey League since 2004. Dr Stock uses his many years of experience in professional sports to find the optimal therapy for every patient.
The MediaPark Clinic in Cologne has ten specialist departments, enabling close collaboration between the various areas of expertise. This medical network allows Dr Thomas Stock's team to provide a direct transition from therapy planning through possible surgical interventions right up to rehabilitation and physiotherapy. Thanks to close cooperation with the Institute for Functional Diagnostics, patients and athletes are able to use biomechanical-orthopaedic movement analyses during rehabilitation in order to return to their personal athletic strain level at the best timing stage.
