Prof. Dr. med. Lukas Konstantinidis, Facharzt für Orthopädie und Unfallchirurgie"Every patient has a right to perfection when it comes to replacing a painful joint. "

Even during my first internship when I started studying, I was fascinated by the incredible options of endoprosthetics. This speciality combines great craftsmanship with a deep knowledge in anatomy. During my time at university I realized that an artificial joint is not the final stop in treating a patient but instead the beginning of a chapter with a new quality of life and enjoying being active and sports.

Before the artificial joint I always explore the options of a joint-preserving procedure. This includes repositioning the bone, procedures on the joint capsule, thigh and the labrum. My primary goals are achieving pain-free mobility and avoiding osteoarthritis of the hip in my patients.

I have set high standards for myself as a specialist in endoprosthesis with accuracy down to the millimeter. Every human has a slightly different anatomy and even the smallest deviations in hip or knee replacement determine success or failure. Precise planning beforehand, the possibility of computer-assisted navigation and gentle AMIS technique for hip surgeries help me implement this philosophy.

The AMIS technique is an innovative surgical method in which a hip is replaced particularly gently using a minimally-invasive port from the front. As a surgeon, I don't damage important muscle groups or nerves in the groin area in the process. The risk of post-op hip pain, limping and instability is low, and patients can be mobilized quickly. I am a primary care doctor for the AMIS technique and regularly instruct hip surgeons in this technique.

Defects in the implanted prostheses can arise even years after the procedure, noticeable by pain. I offer every patient who is not satisfied with their implant the option to investigate the problems and provide them with treatment options. My recommendations are always based on scientific findings and experience, and are far from being influenced by unfounded opinions or economic factors.

The satisfaction of my patients, particularly in joint-preserving hip surgery, resulted in me making the Focus list of physicians in 2021 and 2022, which I'm quite proud of.
