Mrs. V. (68), Australia, knee patient: "The multilingual doctors each are specialized in various areas and I have been very impressed by their expertise"
Date of surgery: January 2015, April 2015
The Joint Clinic/ Gelenk Klinik in Gundelfingen, Germany was recommended to me by a friend who has been successfully treated for various joint problems.
Having also a variety of joint problems (knee, hip and foot) I have been extremely satisfied with the high quality of care.
The clinic is small and with modern equipment. I was impressed with the friendly welcome and competence of Ms Ponert and Ms Perez who coordinated my appointments for doctor's consultations, X-rays and MRIs as well as physiotherapy so as to limit my traveling unnecessarily.
The multilingual doctors each are specialized in various areas and I have been very impressed by their expertise. I appreciate that at the Gelenk Klinik natural treatment methods are also proposed, joint preservation being the primary object. I was helped by such treatment for some time. It was only some time later when such treatments no longer worked did I need two surgeries.
The knee replacement operation proposed was less invasive than that which had been proposed in my home country. Two years later I am walking very well and have excellent movement in my knee.
During my hospital stay I found the staff very professional and attentive. Being a small clinic there is a very personal and caring atmosphere. My family traveled to stay with me during my hospitalization and we were very grateful to be able to rent the well-equipped appartment, belonging to the clinic, for a reasonable price.
I have since recommended the Clinic to many friends and all have been equally impressed with the high standard of medical care.
