That's why this site cannot offer any form of therapy for patients.
Please consult your doctor who will offer you a personalised treatment.
This page is intended for

Objectives of our concepts
early surgery - anatomical reduction - less surgical trauma - stable fixation - early functional treatment
Fracture analysis and classifikation
The final method of reduction and osteosynthesis is determined on the basis of the individual fracture analysis!
Requirements for success
consider the complete process.
Plan, train and standardise all prozedures
