Specialized Center for Orthopaedic, Robotic and Weight Loss Surgery

This private Hospital is located about 2 hour driver form Prague. Highly qualified team of experts can offer specialized treatment. Among them: the replacement of large joints or robotized reconstructive surgery of the prostate, bowel surgery and kidney surgery.

Orthopedics deparment
The orthopaedics ward treats patients with problems, illnesses and injuries of the movement apparatus. During the examination, we evaluate the overall status as well as the range of joint damage and in indicated cases, we arrange for a surgery of these patients (arthroscopy, corrective osteotomy, arthrodesis or artificial joint replacement).
Orthopedics is equipped with rehabilitation equipment that allows for subsequent rehabilitation after surgery.
Together with the subsequent rehabilitation care facilities, the orthopaedics ward has 28 beds overall, plus additional 3 intensive care beds on the intensive care unit.
The following surgeries are carried out on the orthopaedics ward:

•    Endoprosthesis replacements of large joints (hip, knee, shoulder)
•    Revision surgeries of large joint replacements
•    Arthroscopic surgeries (shoulder, knee, ankle)
•    Foot surgery
•    Cubital and carpal canal syndrom surgeries
•    We remove benign bone or movement apparatus tumours
•    Rheumatic surgery
•    Traumatology

We use these so-called mini-invasive treatments as often as possible, and in indicated cases the PC navigation is being applied. We use the post-surgical blood collection ORTHOP A.S. system or the so-called autotransfusion, modern implants and endoprosthesis. All this lowers the burden put on the patient, improves and fastens up the healing process as well as the post-surgical rehabilitation, shortens the hospital stay and the subsequent recovery phase. Mini-invasive methods also lower the post-surgical pain and smaller scars present an optical advantage.
