Diagnosis: hip replacement

I had a hip replacement in Germany. The operation relieved me of constant pain, and now I can walk normally!

I went to the Orthopedics Center in Germany. The patients here are treated by very good doctors and staff, they surrounded me with care. The operation was carried out using a minimally invasive method, the tissues are less damaged by such an intervention and after such an operation you get back on your feet faster. I am very pleased that I decided to have the operation, which saved me from lameness and constant pain.

For those who have similar joint problems, do not be afraid to get treatment in Germany, the quality of medical care here is very high and the prices are reasonable.

Diagnosis: sports injury

I’m currently in rehabilitation after a sports injury. In Germany I underwent plasma therapy for the joint. I feel much better. According to the orthopedist, the injury will not leave any consequences. Thank you very much for your help in finding a German clinic and doctor.

Diagnosis: treatment of knee joints

For several years I was treated in the orthopedic department of my regional hospital in Russia. After two operations, the condition of the knee joints only worsened. The therapy performed at the German clinic Helios Berlin-Buch relieved me of pain and allowed me to restore the function of my knees. Of course, I had to spend 2 weeks in the hospital, but I am very happy with the result. I feel good. Thank you for choosing the clinic and specialist.

Diagnosis: shoulder arthroplasty

I was fitted with a prosthetic shoulder joint. The examination and preparation for surgery took 2 days. After the operation, I spent the night in the hospital, and 2 days later I had a follow-up examination. After that I went home. After 3 months I came to Germany for control. It feels like the joint has begun to move better, and the range of motion has increased. I hope the prosthesis lasts for a long time. I am more than satisfied with the operation and its results.

Diagnosis: shoulder joint endoprosthesis reconstruction

I had a shoulder joint endoprosthesis reconstructed in Munich, I doubted it for a very long time, but after consulting with a doctor, I made up my mind. I have absolutely no regrets. I am pleased with his work and the clinic in general. Attention to detail, sincere participation, repeated repetition of recommendations – perhaps this is what distinguishes German doctors. After the operation, both of my attending physicians asked me daily about my well-being. Special thanks to them for the fact that my treatment was much cheaper than expected at the very beginning.

Joint diseases: causes, symptoms, types

According to WHO, diseases of the musculoskeletal system are among the most common, including:

  • arthrosis – damage to the joint;
  • arthritis – inflammation of the joint;
  • coxarthrosis is a degenerative lesion of the hip joint.
  • osteoarthritis – damage to the cartilage and bones in the joint.

Joint diseases: causes, symptoms, typesChronic circulatory disorders occur under the influence of degenerative-dystrophic changes, which is the leading cause of joint destruction.

Symptoms that require consultation with an orthopedist:

  • pain of a different nature: acute, chronic, constant, paroxysmal, localized, or widespread;
  • swelling and redness of the skin over the joint, a feeling of warmth, and increased temperature;
  • stiffness that can last from a few minutes to several hours;
  • clicking, crunching, or rubbing when moving;
  • deformation and shortening of the limb due to the destruction of cartilage and bones;
  • limited mobility and loss of joint function.

Among the main causes of illness, doctors at the Beta Clinic in Bonn name:

  1. Degenerative-dystrophic changes. Most often they appear with age and are associated with wear and aging of cartilage tissue. For example, with osteoarthritis, there is a gradual destruction of cartilage and the formation of bone growth.
  2. Infectious processes in which the infection enters the joint through the blood and lymph. A common cause is injury.
  3. Autoimmune processes are characterized by disruption of the immune system and its attack on its tissues. For example, with rheumatoid arthritis, antibodies are formed against the synovial membrane; with psoriatic arthritis, antibodies are formed against the skin and nails.
  4. Injuries that can damage cartilage, bone, ligaments or tendons. They can occur due to a fall, blow, incorrect posture, excessive load, or repetitive movements.
  5. Chronic endocrinological diseases. Promote the deposition of various substances in joints. For example, with gout, uric acid is deposited; with chondrocalcinosis – calcium pyrophosphate; with hemochromatosis – iron.

Hereditary factors play an essential role in the occurrence of diseases. Therefore, for people whose relatives suffer from various pathologies, consultation with an orthopedist is extremely necessary.

Diagnosis of joint diseases in Germany

One of the advantages of German orthopedics is a wide range of research methods using the latest generation medical equipment. In German clinics, patients are given a personal examination plan, which may include: arthroscopy, x-ray examination, CT, MRI, ultrasound, scintigraphy, blood test.

Advanced joint treatment methods in Germany

German specialists use the entire arsenal of the most effective techniques for treating joint diseases.

 

Conservative methods of treating joints in GermanyConservative treatment methods

Used for moderate pain and minor cartilage damage. In addition to the usual medication and physiotherapy, the following are available in Germany:

  1. Biological preparations with monoclonal antibodies for the treatment of arthrosis and arthritis. They allow you to stop the process of destruction of cartilage tissue even with 40% of joint damage.
  2. Injections of preparations based on hyaluronic acid. They penetrate deep and act on the principle of joint lubrication. Thanks to this, the inflammatory process is eliminated, cartilage tissue is restored, and further destruction is prevented. The course of injections consists of several cycles.
  3. Laser therapy. Especially recommended for patients with osteoarthritis. The cycle of procedures involves exposure to a red or infrared laser. Biological processes are stimulated in the human body, the regeneration of cells and tissues is enhanced, and the condition improves.

 

Surgical methods for treating joints in GermanySurgical methods of treatment

In German hospitals, foreign patients are offered surgical treatment of the joint with its preservation or replacement. Surgical treatment of joints in Germany includes:

  1. Arthroscopy. A modern minimally invasive method, during which the surgeon can carry out simultaneous diagnosis and, if necessary, treatment. The intervention is performed through small punctures into which the doctor inserts an arthroscope and microsurgical instruments. The doctor examines and washes the joint and removes damaged cartilage and tissue. Arthroscopy does not require hospitalization. According to German clinics, doctors use arthroscopy in more than 90% of cases.
  2. Transplantation of cartilage cells. The essence of the procedure is to inject the patient’s cells. At the University Hospital Leipzig, doctors extract cells from a patient’s healthy cartilage tissue and grow them in a unique laboratory for 30 days. Once in the body, they replace damaged cells and stimulate healthy cartilage tissue growth.
  3. Endoprosthetics. Replacement of the affected joint with an artificial one. Recommended after unsatisfactory conservative therapy or in case of significant damage. They use high-quality prostheses from well-known manufacturers in Germany: OHST (Germany) MATHYS (Switzerland). These are the most modern endoprostheses made of durable materials: titanium steel, ceramics, and polymers, lasting over 20 years. Depending on the indications, doctors can install a partial or complete denture.

Before the operation, the patient undergoes computer planning. The doctor determines the type of prosthesis and the method of its fixation (cement, cementless, hybrid).

Treatment of the shoulder joint in Germany

Treatment of the shoulder joint in GermanyIn the early stages of the disease, German doctors managed to completely restore shoulder mobility and eliminate the cause of pain using conservative methods. In later stages, shoulder joint surgical treatment is performed in Germany using advanced minimally invasive techniques. The range of possible interventions includes:

  • shoulder arthroscopy;
  • reconstruction of ligaments;
  • implantation of cartilage grafts;
  • rheumatological operations;
  • partial and complete shoulder arthroplasty.

Shoulder joint implantation in Germany is performed using a particular CAT computer system. It provides for an individual selection of a prosthesis that will allow the shoulder to function reliably and durable. The doctor carefully removes damaged cartilage and bones and replaces them with hypoallergenic, high-strength implants. The replacement duration is 30-90 minutes.

One of the leading specialists in treating the shoulder joint in Germany is Professor Christopher Ranger, chief physician of the department of orthopedics at the Northwest Clinic in Frankfurt. Has category D (performs operations of increased complexity). He has over 25 years of experience and is a member of prestigious international communities.

Treatment of the hip joint in Germany

Treatment of the hip joint in GermanyMost often, foreign patients turn to German specialists for hip replacement surgery. It is exposed to heavy loads every day, and damage is widespread. Replacement is indicated for the following pathologies:

  • severe coxarthrosis with complete destruction of cartilage;
  • congenital dysplasia;
  • severe dislocations and fractures of the femoral neck in patients of all ages;
  • aseptic necrosis of the femoral head;
  • tumors, bone wear, and severe osteoporosis.

Treatment of the hip joint in Germany with endoprosthetics is performed mainly using minimally invasive methods using navigation systems.

The University Hospital of Düsseldorf is certified by the German Society of Orthopedic Surgery. Doctors try to preserve most of the patient’s bone and install a minimal implant. For the hip joint, prostheses with a short rod with a ceramic friction pair of cementless fixation are used. Doctors install the implant through a 5-8 cm incision, in contrast to the traditional method, in which the incision reaches 25 cm. This minimizes damage to surrounding tissues and speeds up the rehabilitation period.

The surgical intervention is planned using a 3D visualization system: doctors select the optimal shape and size of the prosthesis to determine its position, taking into account the anatomical structure of the hip.

After the operation, orthopedic rehabilitation is carried out, which allows you to recover and return to full mobility quickly.

Among the advanced surgical techniques that are used in the treatment of the hip joint in Germany:

  1. AMIS technology. It involves the installation of a prosthesis through an incision in the front of the thigh, leaving the muscles and tendons intact. The procedure allows the patient to restore mobility almost painlessly and quickly.
  2. Robotic technology MAKOplasty. Allows you to install the implant as accurately as possible (up to 0.1 mm). With this method, postoperative complications are practically not recorded, and a high service life of the endoprosthesis is noted.

Treatment of the hip joint is performed at a high level in Germany at the Helios Krefeld clinic. Surgeries for adults and children are performed by leading sports medicine specialist Clayton Craft. The doctor is a world expert in the field of surgery for severe injuries and the author of over 60 scientific papers. Since 2015, he has headed the Department of orthopedics and Traumatology. The clinic has a package offer that includes consultation and surgery with Clayton Craft.

Treatment of the knee joint in Germany

Treatment of the knee joint in GermanyThe knee joint is one of the most loaded and susceptible to damage in the human body. Its diseases can lead to pain, inflammation, deformity, and impaired mobility. German orthopedists eliminate deformation processes, treat inflammatory and tumor diseases, and restore mobility and functionality of joints after injuries.

The Schon Clinic in Munich is recognized as one of Germany’s best hospitals for knee joint treatment. Leading German experts in the surgical treatment of shoulder, knee, and ankle joints work here: Sebastian Altenberger Professor Markus Wolter. They do:

  1. Arthroscopy. During the intervention, a set of procedures is carried out to restore the statics of the knee joint:
  • washed;
  • perform surgery for a torn meniscus using an arthroscopic suture;
  • eliminate roughness;
  • remove exfoliated particles of bone and cartilage tissue.

Regenerative treatment of the knee joint in Germany using the MIBRAR method. The doctor injects an autoconcentrate from the patient’s cartilage tissue cells to stimulate the growth of new cartilage.

  1. Endoprosthesis replacement using a minimally invasive method.

During the replacement, an important point is the accurate installation and fixation of the endoprosthesis. In this case, the knee will not experience stress from body weight in the future, and the prosthesis will not become loose. For this purpose, orthopedic surgeons at the Helios Clinic Berlin-Buch use the latest modification of a computer navigation system. This allows an endoprosthesis to be manufactured, taking into account a person’s anatomical characteristics and installed correctly.

With partial prosthetics, surgeons replace only damaged cartilage tissue. In this way, they preserve the patient’s tissue structures, reduce rehabilitation time, and improve the quality of life for 20-30 years.

Treatment of the knee joint in Germany at the Charite clinic in Berlin is carried out using unique proprietary technologies. The procedure involves the reconstruction and transplantation of bone cartilage and bone tissue. In addition, the clinic performs tendon reconstruction, knee osteotomy, arthroplasty, and other methods to restore function and prevent joint destruction.
