Possibilities and perspectives of modern day endoprosthetics

Patient information day at the Urania: modern joint surgery

On Saturday, 10th September from 11:00 bis 15:00 o'clock Elizabeth Hospital together with the department of orthopedics and trauma surgery invites to the patient information day in Urania.
We invite you to inform yourself about the subject of joint degeneration and its treatment.
Our experts give answers to frequently asked questions such as:

  • abraision-related joint diseases: what treatment options exist instead of an artificial joint? Or is an endoprosthesis the only way out?
  • is there an individual prosthesis (artificial joint)? What technology, what material comes into question for which patient?
  • What distinguishes a knee endoprosthesis from other artificial joints?
  • How does an endoprosthesis carrier gets back on his feet? How important is the professional post-operative treatment in physiotherapy and rehabilitation?

The lectures is followed by an open discussion, which gives visitors the opportunity to share their experiences with our speakers.

To accompany the lectures and discussions, there will be a small gallery with practical advice on physiotherapy and follow-up treatment.

Location: Loft at the Urania, An der Urania 17, 10787 Berlin

We are looking forward to your visit! Admission is free.
