We’re happy to help!

During our daily consultation hours, we focus entirely on your health concerns. After making a thorough diagnosis, we’ll try and find solutions to suit you. Whether your problems are big or small, we don’t discriminate. Our range of services covers virtually the full array of symptoms in the areas of orthopaedics, trauma surgery and general surgery.

We can tailor our care to your individual symptoms, either conservatively or with surgery, as it is possible for us to treat inpatients in Waiblingen Zentralklinik and outpatients in the state-of-the-art operating theatres located in our clinic.
What’s more, our comprehensive range of services extends to include prosthetics (knee joint/hip), treatment for fractures and laparoscopic procedures (TAPP, gall bladder, appendix, etc.).

FAQs

When are stitches removed?

Generally speaking, stitches are removed after 10-12 days.

Do I need to be referred?

A referral is only required if a patient has opted for the family doctor model. But please don’t forget to bring your health insurance card even if that is the case.

Do I have to bring my own walking aid?

If you don’t have your own walking aid, we can provide one for you.

Sports injuries at the weekend

If any medical emergencies happened over the weekend, you can be seen during the consultation hours for athletes on Mondays between 8am-12pm.

Patient stories

What does an Achilles tendon rupture have to do with a pregnancy in the ninth week?

Chantal (our patient’s name for the purposes of this story) knows the answer, because she’s lived through both. And it also explains why surgeon Dr. Karsten Reichmann learned about her pregnancy even before the gynaecologist – and anybody else.
