Orthopedic sports medicine means the investigation and treatment for all people interested in sport, be it for general fitness or high performance sport, but also in possible sports activity after orthopedic diseases or operations (rehabilitation sport, health sport).
The sports medicine should not only treat acute sports injuries, from our perspective it is particularly important to understand sports medicine care especially in terms of prevention of early and late complications.
For Sports Clubs
On appointment we perform team and squad investigations including the necessary fitness examinations for sports clubs.
Both physicians in our practice are a member of the German Society for Sports Medicine and can look back on many years of experience in sports medicine care for almost all popular sports. We serve currently on the TV Hoesel in Ratingen, the Wuppertal Football Club "Greyhounds" and the North-Rhine Westphalia figure skating center in Dusseldorf.
In the summer of 2007, our practice has been awardes sports medical unit of the German Olympic Sports Confederation. This nomination, which we have been given as the only practice in the district of Mettmann, makes us very proud!
