Treatment in Germany and Switzerland

The symbol of perfection, mastery, prestige and innovations

In this section you will learn about some types of therapy in Germany. Here we put the following fields of medicine as cardiology, cardiosurgery, orthopedics, general surgery, vascular surgery, gynecology, urology, and maternity in Germany.

Dentistry. Dental treatment in Germany

Today, healthy and beautiful teeth are a business card of a modern man. Dentistry helps the people, who do not have healthy and white teeth, to achieve good results. But we all have a fear complex of the dentist's chair, whether you need esthetic dental treatment or sever surgical treatment.

Hip replacement surgery for coxarthrosis

Coxarthrosis is one of the common hip joint diseases that is characterized with molecular hyaline cartilage degradation. As a result, the joint cartilage looses its elasticity, ages and gets thinner. Arthrosis also causes bony lumps formation (osteophytes) and joint inflammations. 
The joint performance efficiency reduces with the course of time and osteophytes formation causes severe pains on movement. The worsening cartilage condition can result into the joint inflammation with pains on movement. First they appear after the rest period and then every movement gets painful.

Hip displasia, corrective osteotomy

Hip dysplasia is an inborn hip deficiency characterized with the size and form disproportion of femoral head and acetabulum resulting at the leg dysfunction. It’s often related to the increasing angle between the femoral head and the stem: as a result, the joint capsule cannot hold the femoral head in the joint capsule and moves upward and laterally (outside). If you don’t undergo any therapy you may suffer from early arthrosis and may need the hip joint replacement in the future.

Ankle cartilage damages

Traumatic injuries can cause the cartilaginous tissue detachment (the pieces of 1-2 cm in diameter). As a rule, the cartilage on the whole remains in the normal condition and the bones are not damaged. These damages respond well to treatment as the cartilaginous  tissues have a good regeneration potential. But the ankle joint needs arthroscopic therapy (the methods are described below) for quick and correct healing process.

Ankle joint arthrosis, endoprosthesis replacement

With the course of time, osteoarthrosis brings about total cartilage destruction, ankle joint deformation and immobility. Bone lumps appear and get visible. These processes are accompanied with pains that get stronger and more acute and with the course of time become continuous even if the patient rests. That inevitably results into immobility. That’s why the therapy should start as early as possible.

Ankle joint instability

The damages of the rearfoot inside and outside ligament structures are the most common traumas. First, conservative treatment methods with the application of stabilizing splints and ortheses (braces) are used in such cases.
Surgical methods are recommended when the patient suffers acute pain, swells and instability after occasional sprains and tension. The treatment is necessary to prevent the ankle joint arthrosis. Successful surgery requires good knowledge of the correct position of three collateral ligaments. German surgeons study it using 3D visualization. The leading German clinics also have great experience in this field that is also mandatory for such kind of surgery.

Contracture (Dupuytren’s disease) treatment

Dupuytren’s disease is palm subcutaneous tissue over-thickening (palmar fibromatosis) that results into the fixed flexion contracture (fascia) can result in partial fingers immobilization when the fingers cannot be fully extended. 
This fibromatosis brings about the fibrous tissue plexus and lump formations that many people mistake for calluses. While the disease is progressing the finger complications appear: they get bent at the angle of 90 degrees, you can hardly move your fingers and they get less sensitive.

Ankle joint arthroscopy

The arthroscope development for minor joint treatment made the ankle joint arthroscopy possible. The joint damages can be caused by sport traumas or degenerative changes. Pain, swells, partial or complete immobility, instability and bleeding are the surgical indications. One of the most popular causes is the second distortion damage accompanied by pain in the tension condition. Arthroscopy is applied for synovium inflammation and deformation resulting into less mobility caused by the soft tissues damage.
Bony bumps (osteophytes) in the ankle joint anterior can cause pain, swells and less mobility especially when doing sports. In such cases arthroscopic osteophyte resection is performed.

Spinal disk treatment by percutaneous endoscopic nucleotomy

This spinal disk herniation treatment is an outpatient method performed under local anesthesia through a small cut made by a special endoscope. A small spiral is let in the spine disk: it swirls and dissects the part of spinal disk hernia that presses on the nerve. The operation lasts for 15 minutes. This spinal disk herniation treatment method efficiency is over 85%. No rehabilitation period is required.
This method can be applied for any disk hernia type but it’s mostly applied for the spine disk herniation in the dorsal and lumbar spine, especially for lateral localization. Depending on the endoscope type, the endoscopy methods can be slightly different.

Spinal stenosis treatment my microscopic laminectomy

Spinal canal stenosis causes continuous acute pains in your back often accompanied with convulsions. A part of a vertebra narrowing the canal and compressing the nerve is removed under local anesthesia. Endoscopic operation is performed under control of the surgical high-resolution microscope.
