For us, quality is more than just a word

Back and joint pain – a global problem

Experts estimate that up to 80% of the population will experience back pain at some time in their lives, it can affect people of all ages. Worldwide, years lived with disability caused by low back pain have increased by 54% between 1990 and 2015. Joint pain affects millions of people who suffer from a wide variety of ailments and conditions. We specialise in the treatment of back and joint pain. Our Nobel Prize-winning diagnostic technology makes it easier to diagnose spine, knee and hip problems, so we offer the right treatment, at the right time for our patients every time.

Number one for mental health treatment

Eating disorders across cultures is increasing in prevalence and awareness, with millions of people affected worldwide. Since 1985 we have recognised how complex this condition is and how we can utilise our experts to specialise in this area. In Germany, we were the first provider to dedicate a specialist hospital for the treatment of eating disorders. Today we continue this legacy and provide treatment to one in six people who undergo mental health treatment in Germany at Schoen Clinic – making us the number one provider of choice. We have developed personalised treatment pathways for our patients, this ensures our patients receive exactly the right treatment for their individual needs.

There may come a time when our patients conservative treatments no longer help their back or joint pain. This may mean it’s time to think about a joint replacement.

In Germany, Schoen Clinic is one of the top three endoprosthetics specialists, with seven certified centres nationwide. Our program, Endo Aktiv - uses gentle anaesthesia procedures, small incisions and customised pain treatment to aid a faster recovery.

Similarly, in the UK our model has been designed and pioneered to include pathways and protocols that give the best out outcomes for our patients by being the best-in-class for post-operative anaesthetic regime that make joint replacement, such as knee surgery almost pain-free and minimally invasive which enables the patient to benefit from a rapid recovery and return to normal life. Resulting in a reduced risk of complications and our patients being mobile just a few hours after their surgery.
