In which German clinics do the doctors have the best experience with the implantation of an artificial hip joint? 17 excellent hospitals are listed here.
The implantation of an artificial hip is amongst the most common medical interventions in Germany. In 2017, more than 200,000 patients got a hip replacement. After the surgery, it is possible for many people to stay active, do sports or to pursue another hobby.
Thanks to minimally invasive surgical techniques, for the implantation of an artificial joint, doctors have to set cuts that are only a few millimeters long and thus are able to install implants more precisely than before. But also the support before and after surgery is important. Furthermore, the experience of the surgeon plays a role. The more experience, the better – this applies to the insertion of an artificial hip as well as to any other medical area.

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 intervention on an above-average basis have been taken into account. 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 published a list of the best hip centres in Germany. All the clinics mentioned are listed in the Clinic List 2021 as top clinics in the field of hip surgery (endoprosthetics).
- Good Hygiene! All of the clinics listed attach above-average value to patient safety. At least 45 out of 55 measures have been taken in order to assure optimal hygiene before, during and after surgery.
Besides the doctors and clinics mentioned, there are many other physicians who guarantee excellent treatment. Also, there are of course orthopedists that specialized in knee surgery, shoulder surgery or spinal surgery.
