Which clinics in Germany are most suitable for the treatment of arthrosis of the hip joint? 38 hospitals with high treatment quality are listed here.

Hip arthrosis, also called coxarthrosis, defines the damage to the cartilage of the femur head or the hip socket. This leads to restricted mobility and pain in the hip area, which has an impact on daily life.

For a successful treatment, the choice of the hospital is very important because not all hospitals in Germany meet all quality criteria. Besides good equipment and high treatment quality, doctors at all clinics in the list have been awarded for their expertise in the area of hip surgery.

This is how the clinic list was created

  • Many patients! At the clinics presented above, the doctors have great experience with arthrosis of the hip joint (M16), because only hospitals that perform this intervention 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 Satisfaction! The level of patient satisfaction of the clinics in the list is at least at 90 percent. This is the result of a survey by the German health insurance companies AOK and BARMER in cooperation with the “Weisse Liste”. Every year, almost half a million of insured people are being questioned about their hospital stay. This is the biggest patient survey in Europe.
  • Focus Award! Every year, the big German weekly magazine FOCUS awards the best hip centers in Germany. All the hospitals mentioned are listed as top clinics in the area of hip surgery (endoprosthetics) in the Clinic List 2021.
  • Good Hygiene! Many patients suffer from an infection during their hospital stay, which is why good hospital hygiene is important. All 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.

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