In orthopedic surgery experience counts

Should the mobility of knees, hips or shoulders be restricted due to a sports injury, an accident or attrition, the correct measures need to be initiated in order to conserve your joints and to maintain a high level of activity for as long as possible. The correct evaluation of the situation and the case-specific, optimal therapeutic steps are crucial for the quality of your future life. Together, the patient and his or her physician will decide what shall be done at what time.

Whoever has to decide for or against surgery needs to be sure that his or her chances have been assessed correctly and that he or she can count on an improved situation in future. In many cases it is advisable to obtain a neutral second opinion. My long-term experience as head physician of the Clinic for Orthopedics of the Cantonal Hospital in Luzern, Switzerland, may be useful in such circumstances.
