The shoulder is the most flexible joint of the body - and thus unfortunately also exposed to   special   stress.

The shoulder itself is poised between mobility and stability.Younger patients  complaint more of dislocation or instability.

Older patients mainly suffer from wear of the rotator cuff and cartilage.

 Significant progress has been made in the standardized diagnosis and treatment of shoulder     disorders over the last couple of years. Superficially - similar complaints may have various true     causes; however, due to ever more complex sports activities pursued by patients and their   increased activity in older age, the causes and triggers need to be identified and treated   appropriately. 

 Shoulder defects can be classified into two categories. The first pertains to accident related   injuries suffered in particular by patients that actively pursue sports. The second covers wear   related or spontaneous shoulder injuries that are not the result of an accident. 

 

 • Once the causes are accurately classified, most shoulder complaints can be treated     conservatively and without surgery.

 • If surgery becomes necessary, today it is often arthroscopic (minimally invasive) possible   through the smallest portals.

 The aim of every individual treatment is the restoration of quality of life through a painless and   functioning shoulder.
