Rehabilitation - Postoperative care

At Sporthopaedic Hamburg, we are committed to efficient and effective postoperative treatment and rehabilitation. Our primary goal is to help you to return to your usual performance level as fast as possible and regain an active lifestyle.

Our specialised team comprising an orthopaedist and trauma surgeon, sports scientists and medical professionals is eminently equipped to support you throughout the entire rehabilitation process. We offer detailed and personalised support based on your specific needs and the requirements of your respective surgery.

One main concern held by many patients after an operation is the question of when they can return to sports and the training level they should start at. Our “Return to Sport” / “Return to Competition” programme aims to answer these questions and permit a safe and effective transition back to sports activity.

During the therapy, we apply state-of-the-art therapeutic equipment and techniques to support and accelerate the healing process. Our approach includes measures to prevent muscle breakdown, restore range of motion, and optimise body sensation, balance and coordination after surgery. We attach great importance to meeting the individual needs of each patient and work closely with surgeons to achieve the best possible results.

Our specific aftercare programmes include, but are not limited to:

  • Rehabilitation after knee endoprosthesis: Our goal is to relieve pain, restore range of motion, and improve overall mobility.
  • Rehabilitation after hip replacement: We work to improve muscle strength and flexibility, optimise joint function, and enable pain-free walking.
  • Rehabilitation after disc surgery: Our focus is on pain relief, improving spinal stability, and restoring functionality.
  • Rehabilitation after anterior and posterior cruciate ligament reconstruction: We aim for full restoration of knee joint function, stability and strength.
  • Rehabilitation after meniscus surgery: Our programme aims to reduce swelling, relieve pain, restore range of motion, and strengthen muscles.
  • Rehabilitation after shoulder stabilisation and rotator cuff repair: We work to relieve pain, restore range of motion, and improve shoulder function.
  • Rehabilitation after femoral neck fracture: Our aim is to restore mobility and independence and minimise the risk of complications.
  • Rehabilitation after ankle surgery: Our programme aims to relieve pain, restore range of motion, and improve overall mobility.
  • Rehabilitation after bone fracture at all extremities and of the spine: We aim for full restoration of joint function, mobility and strength.

In each case, our aftercare is individualised after consultation with your surgeons and according to the latest early rehabilitation algorithms. Our holistic and patient-centred approach ensures that you receive the best possible care and support to accelerate your recovery and return to an active and healthy lifestyle. In the course of rehabilitation, we coordinate constantly with the patient’s physiotherapist.
