Aside from the established imaging methods like digital x-ray, MRI and ultrasound, our diagnostics department also has a CT scanner available. This way we can diagnose fractures and joint injuries even faster and more accurate.
Using clinical examinations and complex imaging, our specialists diagnose the injury as quickly as possible. We then discuss the various conservative, surgical andtherapeutic possibilities with the patient – normally all within one day.
The first visit and diagnostics take place at the (public insurance) practice, and are thereby accessible to all insured patients.
The CT and x-rays services in the ordination are not covered by the health insurers and are considered private services.
The safety of the patient is the main priority at the outpatient anesthesia department. We also take care to create a pleasant atmosphere before and after surgery. During surgery, skilled and independent anesthetists using the most up-to-date anesthetic methods care for our patients.
The operating rooms comply with the highest international standards in regards to technical, hygienic and safety needs. Because of the wide range and high patient frequency (120 000 patients during the first 10 years), our medical teams have collected immense wealth of expertise and experience in treating traumas and conditions of the musculoskeletal system.
We work with state-of-the-art technical tools in fully digitalized operating rooms. All procedures are recorded (photo and video) for transparency and quality control purposes. This way, we can supply physicians and therapists who do follow-up treatment with important documentation.
The medical team can even change the lighting, the color, and the sound in the operating room to create an ideal working ambiance.
The costs for the out-patient and specialist treatments are the responsibility of the patient or his/her private health insurance. Patients are given an estimate after the first examination at thepractice, where all costs are listed.
After surgery, the patient is cared for by his or her own team of nurses, orderlies and physicians in the recovery room. After the post-op recovery phase, the patient spends the following hours at a private aftercare unit.
Individual meals in accordance with medical needs and patient’s wishes, satellite TV, and bedside Internet are medalp conveniences that make the days spent in recovery as pleasant as possible. Peace and quite, good service and the opportunity to have visitors anytime are other things that contribute to general well-being and quicker recovery.
The costs for the post-surgery treatments are the responsibility of the patient or his/her private health insurance.
