Centre for Joint and Sport Surgery
The work of the Centre for Joint and Sport Surgery at the Pyramid Clinic is varied and extensive. The range of therapies and surgical procedures includes trauma surgery, orthopaedic surgery, endoprosthetics (artificial joints), shoulder surgery, hand surgery and foot surgery. Whenever possible, operations are carried out in a minimally invasive manner (arthroscopy, hip replacements, knee replacements).
With Dr Alessandro Rustia (I), highly-trained specialist in spinal surgery and pain management with a focus on minimally invasive and modern surgical techniques, the center for joint and sports surgery also covers the entire neurosurgical spectrum as well as the treatment of injuries and degenerative diseases of the spine.
Soft tissue-oriented, minimally invasive surgery
Our centre specialises in minimally invasive and soft-tissue-oriented joint replacement and offers innovative and proven surgical techniques and products in cooperation with leading implant manufacturers. Our aim is to optimise our range of services and products together for your benefit, whether through new implants or improved surgical techniques. The Centre for Joint and Sport Surgery has been offering minimally invasive and soft-tissue-oriented surgery for knee and hip conditions for many years with great success.
It has the following benefits:
- Minimal injury to soft tissues
- Smaller incisions and thus smaller scars
- Less pain and fewer complications
- Faster and better mobilisation with optimal joint stability
- Fast recovery phase
- Shorter hospital stay and thus lower costs
- No blood donations required
The hip joint is the second-largest joint in the body. If your hip hurts, the cause should be investigated. A hip replacement can help if there is advanced wear on the cartilage. more
The cost of treatment depends on the nature and extent of the procedures involved. Private or semi-private insurance is required. An upgrade as a self-paying patient can be arranged at any time. more
Cruciate ligament tears, meniscus damage or osteoarthritis of the knee: the knee is our most vulnerable joint. Treatments include physiotherapy, treatment for injuries caused by accidents and knee replacements. more
