The university hospital is a certified trauma center to ensure that each type of injury is taken care by experts.

Our close cooperation with adjoining departments and our efficient intensive care unit enable us to serve patients with multiple and/or severe injuries of all kinds, particularly those with serious concomitant injuries involving damage to the head, chest, abdomen and blood vessels. Staff in the Department of Traumatology are divided into special treatment teams to ensure that each type of injury is taken care of by experts.

We perform joint replacement surgery in injuries to the shoulder and hip joint.

Another team provides follow-up treatment after injuries, rehabilitation and revision surgery.

We have experts trained to deformities, nonunions (pseudoarthrosis), and soft tissue or bone infections.

Our services include advice on professional reintegration to help our patients to come normal active life as quickly as possible.

Please contact us by email if you need a second opinion.

We cover many aspects of trauma care ourselves.

In addition the Department of Traumatology offers numerous contacts to adjacent departments in which patients are treated by certified specialists (such as cardiac, thoracic, abdomen and others):
