Guidelines for orthopaedics and trauma surgery

  • The field of orthopaedics and trauma surgery includes prevention and detection, conservative and surgical treatment, follow-up treatment and rehabilitation of injuries of all kinds and their consequences, as well as of congenital and acquired deformities, maldeformities, functional disturbances and diseases of the organs related to posture and movement.
  • This includes interdisciplinary competence and applies to all age levels.
  • The specialised fields of medicine adapt to the changing requirements for fulfilling these tasks in the best interests of our patients. We guarantee competence from one single source only.
  • As orthopaedic and trauma surgeons, we strive for the well-being and survival of our patients and ensure treatment that considers the individual needs of each single person within the framework of human rights and patient rights. 
  • Our selection of treatments is based on current scientific evidence, good clinical practice as well as all resources available for economically responsible measures.
  • We are obliged to participate in education, advanced training and specialisation.
  • We support research and teaching as well as the practical implementation of any results at the highest possible level.
  • We treat colleagues from other disciplines as partners and strive for constructive, interdisciplinary discussion to ensure and develop competent, interdisciplinary cooperation.
  • The patients entrusted to us are always at the centre of all our efforts.
