The department of sports orthopaedics is located in the Klinikum rechts der Isar on the ground floor of building 524. The associated ward R1a is located directly above the section on the second floor.

The outpatient appointments are organised at time intervals which ensure a detailed consultation for each patient. Each patient is examined by a junior doctor as well as the senior physician on duty to verify a surgical indication or to initiate an individualized management plan. If necessary, further examinations (X-ray, CT, MRI) are carried out in the radiology department of the hospital or elsewhere on an outpatient basis.

Dear patient,

The new surgery centre at the “Klinikum rechts der Isar” opened in January 2010. This provides our department with two state-of-the-art operating rooms, where arthroscopic, minimally invasive and conventional operations take place.

Our nursing team consists of staff nurses, surgical assistants and nursing staff with special training as operating room nurses. Through continuous further training and cooperation with other specialties (e.g. anesthesia) as well as close cooperation with the sports orthopedic surgeons, we are able to treat you according to the latest medical and technical standards.

You will receive continuous care from us before, during and after the operation.

After arriving from the ward to the operating theatre, the anaesthetist will begin the anaesthesia. You will then be positioned in a way specific to the operation to ensure optimal access to the limb which is to be operated. Following disinfection and sterile draping, the agreed operative procedure will take place. After the end of the operation and anaesthesia you will be monitored in our recovery room. When you have recovered from the anaesthetic, you will be taken back to the ward.

We will accompany and guide you throughout your stay in the operating theatre in order to relieve potential feelings of nervousness.

With kind regards

Your OR-team
