Dr. Dirk Hömig, MD, Orthopaedist and Trauma Surgeon"I greatly enjoy working with a variety of age groups. In paediatric orthopaedics in particular, conditions can sometimes be treated with simple measures within weeks in order to avoid future surgery."

Our health is our greatest asset. Particularly in orthopaedics it’s very possible to improve a patient’s health through various treatment options. It’s a very satisfying and diverse professional task.

I already took an interest in natural sciences in school. I particularly wanted to understand the complex processes and connections of the human body and wanted my profession later in life to give me purpose.

The combination of working with my hands and providing advice is a particularly satisfying task. I immensely enjoy working with people in different age groups. In paediatric orthopaedics in particular, conditions can sometimes be treated with simple measures with a matter of weeks. This can help to spare the infant numerous possible surgeries over the course of its life. One example is the Tübingen hip flexion and abduction orthosis used in the case of an incorrectly developed hip joint (dysplasia). Even helping to significantly improve the quality of life for people who have been suffering from arthritis pain for years is a wonderful part of my job.

Here at Gelenk-Klinik we have access to all modern medicine has to offer. The specialised orthopaedic medical practice offers modern treatment concepts in a comfortable environment with extremely competent staff.
