Which clinics for orthopedics are the best in Germany? Ten excellent hospitals are listed here.

Today, orthopedists and orthopedic surgeons can successfully treat even complicated injuries thanks to minimally invasive techniques. However, the doctor’s expertise is no less important than state-of-the-art equipment, because as a good surgeon, experience is essential. The clinics presented in the list below are excellent clinics for endoprosthetics (hip replacement). The surgical implantation of an artificial hip joint is the most common orthopedic surgery in Germany.

In addition to the doctors and clinics mentioned here, there are orthopedists that specialized in another area of expertise, for example in hand surgery, shoulder surgery or spinal surgery. In Clinic Compass’ clinic list, all specialist clinics are listed.

This is how the clinic list was created

  • Many patients! At the clinics presented above, the doctors have great experience with the implantation of an artificial hip joint (OPS 5-820), because only hospitals that perform this surgery on an above-average basis have been taken into consideration. Hospitals are obliged to inform about their medical treatment in quality reports and to provide this information to the Federal Joint Committee.
  • High Level of Patient Safety! All of the clinics attach above-average value to patient safety. At least 45 out of 55 measures have been taken in order to guarantee optimal hygiene before, during and after surgery.
  • Excellent Equipment! All clinics have the equipment that is necessary for the treatment at their disposal which guarantees a successful therapy. At least 14 out of 17 criteria are fulfilled in the equipment of the hospital.

This is just a small selection of German clinics. Of course, many other hospitals also offer a high quality of treatment.
