As the largest joint of the human body, the knee joint is the most frequently injured one in the event of a sports accident. Meniscus, cross and side ligament injuries as well as consequent damage to the cartilage are seen in all winter sports as well as in all ball, contact and running sports.
In addition to the patella, bony injuries refer mainly to the tibial plateau (shin bone head) and the lower limbs. In this case, torsional forces are the decisive factors for the severity of the injury.
The specialist provides the exact diagnosis of the injury by clinical examination, assisted by X-ray and possibly magnetic resonance imaging (MRI); so that the appropriate treatment can be initiated without delay …

Ankle and foot
Tendon injuries in the ankle area are typical injuries in the ball and jumping sport, and mainly affect the ligaments on the outer nostrils. Achilles tendon injuries are seen above all in the case of pre-existing overloads and sudden sprinting or jumping. Ankle fractures, hip and heel bone fractures are also frequent and usually followed by severe injuries, which require optimal specialist treatment.
The specialist team of foot surgery around Dr. Gurndin covers the entire conservative and surgical treatment spectrum.

Hip and pelvis
Discomfort in the area of the hip joint occurs mainly in advanced age. Typically, a hip arthrosis is diagnosed, which in most cases is treated with a joint replacement, so-called prosthesis. However, young patients may also be affected by persistent hip pain or severe injuries resulting from sports injuries at a higher speed. Our specialist Dr. Demetz, who over the years has acquired a profound expertise in hip surgery and especially in hip prosthesis, mainly treats abnormal changes in the hip joint.

- Treatment of pelvis and hip fractures
- Endoprosthesis of the hip
- Revision and change of prosthesis
- Hip arthroscopy
Back pain has become the popular disease of the 21st century and occurs in both young and elderly patients. The specialist team of the spinal column around Dr. Kamjunke treats back pain conservatively by osteoptic therapy, infiltration and adaptation of shoes.

Upper and lower leg
The thigh bones carry the weight of the upper body and are the heaviest and longest bones of the human body. The thigh muscles stabilize and are responsible for knee flexion. Injuries in the thigh muscles are triggered by overloading and abrupt movements, where a muscle fiber rupture often occurs. This is also often the case in the lower leg, especially in the calf area. On the other hand, upper or lower limbs are usually seen within the framework of high-speed trauma, such as in the case of car and motorcycle accidents or skiing.
Disease patterns of the upper and lower leg
Surgical treatments in the field of femoral and lower leg surgery
- Closed or open reduction and internal fixation of fractures
- Corrective osteotomies of deformities and defective positions
Injuries to the shoulder may affect both the actual shoulder joint (joint between the upper arm and the shoulder blade socket), or the shoulder-joint or acromioclavicular joint (joint between the sacrum and scapular procession = acromion).
Typically, injuries such as AC-luxation, shoulder dislocation, clavicle fracture, upper arm head fracture occur during the crash on the prolonged stretched arm as in the fall off the bike, from the horse, but also during ski and snowboard crashes or downhill or motorcycle sport.
The earlier a suitable treatment begins, the faster and better the function of the shoulder strap can be restored.
