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.

Osteoarthritis of the hip: Joint Preserving Surgery through Hip Arthroscopy

Hip specialist approach to treating osteoarthritis of the hipHip specialist approach to treating osteoarthritis of the hip ©Viewmedica

Hip arthroscopy is a procedure which allows the hip specialist to examine (and at the same time treat) the bones, ligaments and cartilage of the hip joint.

Hip arthroscopy is performed as minimally invasive surgery. Two or three small incisions allow microsurgical instruments to access the hip joint. Hip arthroscopy can identify (and often remove) the causes of osteoarthritis of the hip.

Total Hip Replacement Surgery (Hip Prosthesis)

Total hip replacement surgery is advised in patients for whom the hip joint has been so severely damaged by osteoarthritis, that it is no longer possible to preserve the natural joint through hip resurfacing. In this case, both the femoral head and the socket of the hip joint are replaced by metal and polyethylene components designed to restore pain free mobility. At the Gelenk Klinik our hip specialist is able to offer different designs and materials for the replacement joint and will advise on the most suitable for each individual case. The quality and durability of hip replacement is largely dependant on the expert diagnosis, the skill and experience of the hip specialist. However total hip replacement surgery is one of the most tested and successful joint replacement procedures available today.

Hip Resurfacing: Bone Preserving Treatment (Birmingham Prosthesis/McMinn-Implant)

Hip resurfacing has the potential to give a high degree of pain free mobility, particularly to younger patients with severe hip arthritis, who are otherwise in good health. © Gelenk-Klinik

Hip resurfacing surgery or partial hip prosthesis replaces the damaged cartilage and bone of the hip joint. These implants are designed to restore function to a hip joint affected by osteoarthritis.

Dentists have known for a long time that a small area of damage to a tooth is no longer a reason to replace that tooth, instead they fill or crown the damaged area. This restorative principle has finally been applied to hip replacement surgery.
