This is how the clinic list was created
- Many patients! At the clinics presented above, doctors have great experience with the knee joint replacement (OPS 5-822), because only hospitals that perform knee joint replacement 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, including the qualification of staff. In the clinics mentioned above, not only the necessary equipment is at disposal, there are also doctors with different supplementary qualifications necessary for knee treatment.
- Focus Award! Every year, the German weekly magazine Der FOCUS publishes a list of the best Knee Centers in Germany. All hospitals mentioned are listed in the Clinic List 2021 as top clinic in the area of knee surgery.
This is just a small selection of German clinics. Of course, many other hospitals also offer a high quality of treatment.
