The upper extremities/sports injuries team led by Dr Florin Allemann specialises in the surgical treatment of diseases and injuries of the upper extremities suffered by patients of all ages from young to very old.
The upper extremity/sports traumatology clinic treats common sports injuries of all parts of the musculoskeletal system. These can be acute injuries following a sports accident or chronic musculoskeletal problems caused by overuse. Our patients include both amateur and professional athletes.
Following a detailed examination and appropriate diagnostic procedures, our main priority is to initiate the treatment most suited to the patient’s needs.
In most cases, the injury can be completely healed by following a differentiated, primarily conservative treatment regimen. Optimised, performance-oriented rehabilitation is provided in close cooperation with the highly specialised sports physiotherapists in our group of sports medicine experts.
Cutting-edge, evidence-based operations can also be performed at our hospital if surgery is required. Most joint surgery in the field of sports medicine can now be performed using minimally invasive procedures (arthroscopy). The aim of both surgical procedures and sports physiotherapy is to enable the patient to resume their sporting activities and return to peak performance as soon as possible.
Our team is on hand to provide clarification, advice, treatment, second opinions or follow-up treatment for patients referred by the physicians who have been treating them to date. You can also come to our emergency department if you have pressing questions or concerns, or make an appointment with our upper extremities/sports traumatology clinic if the problem has become chronic.
