This is how the clinic list was created:

  • Focus Award! Every year, the big German weekly magazine Der FOCUS awards the best specialist hospitals for hand surgery. All the clinics mentioned are listed as top clinics in the field of hand surgery in the Clinic List 2021.
  • Private vs. Public! German patients with private health insurance and patients from abroad can choose their clinic freely. They can also receive their treatment at a private clinic, which is why apart from public hospitals, private clinics are presented as well.
  • International Reputation! Doctors at the clinics mentioned below are well-known internationally, because they give specialist lectures there or because they are recommended by local colleagues. Therefore, all of the clinics in the list have an International Office for patients from abroad.
