Which clinics in Germany offer hip impingement surgery with high treatment quality? 10 excellent hospitals are listed here.

A hip impingement occurs when there is a conflict between the hip socket and the head of the femur. Possible symptoms are primarily pain in the groin and the thigh as well as restricted mobility and rest pain. Besides surgery, conservative treatment possibilities are also available.

Not all patients need an artificial joint. Sometimes, only the cartilage is injured and can be conserved. That’s why it is recommended to visit a specialist center where the doctors have great experience with the therapy of hip impingement syndrome. Below, some top clinics for hip impingement surgery are listed. Besides good equipment and high treatment quality, the doctors there 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, doctors have great experience with hip impingement surgery (M24), 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 of the hospitals mentioned above have been 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, that’s 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.
