INFORMATION ON THE FIELD OF Orthopaedics

At PRIMO MEDICO you will find only experienced doctors and specialized clinics available in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland.

What is Orthopedics?
Orthopedics is a medical discipline specializing in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases or disorders of the bones, joints, muscles, and tendons, the so-called musculoskeletal support system. The field of orthopedics is independent in many hospitals in Germany, yet the training of doctors is the combined specialist for orthopedics and trauma surgery. Training as a specialist takes six years.
Which Orthopedic Diseases are treated by Orthopedics or Orthopedic Clinics?
Orthopedics was originally developed as a purely conservative field at the time of many existing disabled folks due to Second World War. Today, orthopedic therapies range from merely conservative treatment methods to the surgical treatment of joints, muscles, tendons and bones. A specialization in the treatment and operation of individual body parts such as the foot, shoulder, knee, hip and back has become a trend in modern orthopedics and thus provides greater experience in the respective field.
Common Orthopedic Diseases are:
- Degenerative diseases like arthrosis (joint wear)
- Congenital and acquired deformities such as knock knees, o-knees, scoliosis, joint or ligament injuries
- Inflammatory bones and joint diseases like bone necrosis, rheumatic diseases and bacterial inflammation
- Tumor diseases of bones and joints
- Sport injuries and traumas
Partial Specializations in Orthopedics
Although orthopedists are responsible for the holistic treatment of the musculoskeletal and supporting system, more part specializations have emerged in recent years.
Orthopedic specialists are increasingly concentrating on one or more body parts for improved performance and to further perfect their expertise and surgical techniques or to apply new treatment and surgical procedures.

Orthopedic Rehabilitation and Aftercare
In the field of orthopedics and trauma surgery, special attention is paid to rehabilitation measures together with physiotherapy and orthopedic techniques (eg making insoles for shoes).This approach, in collaboration with the orthopedist during and after treatment, allow the best possible recovery of the joint and musculoskeletal system functions.
Which Medical Experts and Hospitals are Specialists in Orthopedics in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland?
If you need a doctor, you want the best medical care. That is why the patient asks himself: “Where can I find the best possible orthopedic clinic in Germany, Austria, or Switzerland?” Since this question cannot be answered objectively and a reputable doctor would never claim to be the best, patients can only rely on the physician´s expertise. The more treatments or surgeries a doctor has done, the better of an expert he should be!
