Septic and Reconstructive Surgery
Our team is specialized in rehabilitation of infections (e.g. osteitis, prosthesis infection) and reconstruction of resulting defects e.g. segment transport (elongation of intramedullary nail, ring fixator) or flap surgery.
Every year we treat numerous patients with septic complications, mainly from the southern part of Germany.
Besides the method of callus distraction with a ring fixator which has been used for some time we offer the more comfortable method (if indicated) of medullary nail elongation.
Our department also has an emphasis on science and clinical research in order to continue septic and reconstructive surgery at the highest level.
