Workplace accidents, traffic accidents and sports accidents often result in extremely serious injury to bones and the skeletal system, as well as to muscles, tendons and skin. In many cases, a patient will be suffering from several types of injury at once – treatment of such “polytrauma” patients is particularly complicated. Facilities such as a shock room and specialized systems for positioning trauma patients are just as important as highly-specialized doctors and nursing staff.
Hamburg offers trauma medicine on a highly specialized level. Services available in the city include not only conventional operations, but also plastic and reconstructive surgery, hand surgery and treatment of serious burn injuries and quadriplegic patients. Hospitals work on an interdisciplinary and inter-department basis, also offering patients post-surgery rehabilitation services to help them return to normal life.
As well as providing emergency treatment of injuries of the musculoskeletal system, we specialize in the typical injuries suffered by older people, using particularly gentle and interdisciplinary treatment strategies.
