Congenital joint deformities, injuries, metabolic diseases such as rheumatism or gout as well as overweight and constant overloading can lead to wear and tear of the joint cartilage. The arthrosis is associated with limited mobility and severe joint pain.
A lasting pain relief and thus improvement in mobility can often only be obtained by the implantation of an artificial joint. The affected joint is either completely or only partially substituted by an implant. These implants or prostheses, which remain in the body permanently, are called endoprostheses and are primarily used in the hip and knee area.
We would also be pleased to be of assistance to you personally for a detailed consultation on the subject of hip and knee endoprosthetics!
