At Sporthopaedic Hamburg, we have dedicated ourselves to the challenge of fighting the battle against artificial joints. We focus on conservative therapy for osteoarthritis in order to preserve the patient’s own joint for as long as possible and avoid the need for an artificial joint.

Osteoarthritis can significantly impair your quality of life by causing pain and restricting your ability to move at work and during leisure time. An artificial joint often seems to be the last resort, especially when it comes to the knee joint, where the surgical results are often less satisfactory than with hip joint replacement. Nevertheless, such a decision should never be made solely on the basis of an X-ray image. No artificial joint can match the performance and flexibility of your own joint.

Stammzellentherapie bei Kniearthrose

Our approach to osteoarthritis treatment comprises several key components:

  1. Diagnostics: We use the latest CBCT technology in stress situations and carry out precise leg axis and spine measurements. This enables us to accurately assess the condition of your joint and plan the optimum treatment strategy.
  2. Intra-articular injections: Instead of conventional hyaluronic acid, we use hydrolysed collagen for intra-articular injections. Hydrolysed collagen is better absorbed by the body and can help to improve joint function and relieve pain.
  3. Training and exercise therapy: We use state-of-the-art training equipment and techniques to promote your joint health. This includes the Alter G anti-gravity treadmill, electro-muscle stimulation (EMS), induction therapy and the HUBER 360. These forms of therapy aim to strengthen muscles, improve joint mobility and relieve pain.

Please note that all forms of therapy are customised to the individual patient and are adapted based on the specific type of osteoarthritis, the degree of joint deterioration and the patient’s general state of health. The aim is always to achieve the best possible results and to preserve the natural joint for as long as possible.
