ORTHOSPINUM Munich focuses not just on spinal disorders and injuries, but also, due to Dr Oetke’s past involvement in athletics, on general orthopedics and sports traumatology. Regardless of the cause of the complaint (degeneration, trauma or misalignment) to the shoulder, elbow, hand, hip, knee or foot – ORTHOSPINUM Munich can help you.
Depending on the diagnosis, conservative treatments such as anti-inflammatory medication, hyaluronic acid injections, shockwave therapy (ESWT) or physiotherapy may help to alleviate the symptoms. A surgery may be considered if there has been no success with the above mentioned methods over the long term.
Most complaints can be controlled very well using conservative methods. For example, shockwave therapy or localised injections with hyaluronic acid or blood plasma (PRP) can achieve very good results in healing the inflamed tendons in patients with tennis elbow.
Bone and joint damage, irritation or damage to nerve structures, as well as muscular disorders can cause the hands to have limited mobility. Therapy can range from physiotherapy, anti-inflammatory medication to minimally invasive surgery – for example, in severe cases of carpal tunnel syndrome.
We use imaging to determine where your hip pain is coming from and what we can do for you. Conservative therapies are usually successful. Where there is proven osteoarthritis, local injections with hyaluronic acid or blood plasma (PRP) are particularly promising treatment options. More serious damage to the joint cartilage may require gentle and minimally invasive surgical interventions.
Physiotherapy and anti-inflammatory medications are usually good for controlling minor knee problems. In mild to moderate cases of knee osteoarthritis, local injections with hyaluronic acid or blood plasma (PRP) often provide consistently positive results. Only severe injuries (cruciate ligament rupture or meniscus damage) or advanced osteoarthritis require the consideration of surgical measures. Minimally invasive and tissue-conserving techniques are used wherever possible.
Special shoe insoles, shockwave therapy (ESWT), local injections or physiotherapy can help if your feet are no longer functioning properly. If these conservative measures do not yield a satisfactory result, we will talk to you about the suitable minimally invasive surgical methods to help restore your mobility and quality of life.
