Trauma surgery in Hamburg

Always there for you in an emergency

The experts at the trauma surgery department at Schoen Clinic Hamburg Eilbek ensure emergency care at our hospital. The consultants are available in shifts around the clock, 365 days a year at the interdisciplinary central emergency rooms and at the trauma centre. We treat all kinds of injuries and emergencies related to the musculoskeletal system. If needed, specialists from other hospital departments and centres are immediately available for your care.

Trauma surgery

Trauma surgery aims to provide an injured patient with the best possible treatment to ensure a return to work and social environment by all means possible. To achieve this goal, our specialists work with tissue-conserving and minimally invasive procedures. In the new operating theatre building opened in 2019, a total of 12 ultra-modern operating theatres with state-of-the-art digital technology - including intraoperative CT imaging - are available to all surgical specialist centres.

Tissue-preserving procedures

When treating injuries, our specialists place special value on tissue-preserving and minimally invasive procedures to avoid further damaging the already injured areas of your body. In this context, our trauma surgery department, in cooperation with renowned companies and other leading centres for trauma surgery, is involved in the development of modern implants for bone healing and fracture endoprosthetics.

Shock room for the treatment of severely injured patients

The shock room at Schoen Clinic Hamburg Eilbek is part of the Emergency Department. This is where our specialists can provide initial diagnostic and therapeutic care for severely injured and polytraumatised patients and then, if necessary, transfer them further. Internal medicine and neurology patients are also treated in the shock room.

Authorised medical examiner

Our hospital is accredited as an authorised medical examiner treating all types of work-related accidents in the central emergency room. Depending on the severity of the injury, patients are transferred to hospitals that provide further treatment.

Hand surgery

We use our hands for daily tasks, making them an essential human grasping organ. Injuries or severe pain, therefore, pose severe limitations in our daily life or in the practice of sports.
To restore hand function in the best possible way, at Schoen Clinic Hamburg Eilbek, our world-class hand specialists treat acute and chronic hand injuries using the latest minimally invasive techniques and state-of-the-art equipment.

Special multidisciplinary care for elderly patients

Our society is ageing. The trauma surgery department of our hospital is facing this challenge and has established, together with the department of geriatrics, a centre for geriatric traumatology. In this centre, the multidisciplinary treatment and care of elderly and very old patients is carried out on a multidisciplinary basis in order to meet the needs of these patients. With weekly accident surgery-geriatric team meetings, we ensure comprehensive and patient-oriented care even after surgery. For age-related injuries typical of older people, such as osteoporotic fractures of the humeral head, the forearm, the pelvis and the hip joint, minimal-invasive techniques and special implants for load-stable treatment of the fracture have been developed.
