Back & Spine

The spine is the main supporting organ of our body. Back problems and pain therefore often arise from spinal diseases that are related to the spine's ageing or are caused by bone loss.

We are personally committed to providing your highly sensitive spine with the best possible care. The Schoen Clinic Lorsch is one of the leading hospitals in the Rhine-Main region for back problems or spinal diseases. Our concept and many years of experience in treating back problems as well as the specialist treatment for spinal surgery in our clinic, which is personally tailored to you, is the key to success. Our concept and many years of experience in treating back problems as well as the specialist treatment in our clinic for spinal surgery, which is personally tailored to your needs, is the key to success, as confirmed by our satisfied patients.

We also attach great importance to a close exchange with specialist societies.

Before any surgeries, we first carry out diagnostics, give advice and present alternatives. Surgery is not always necessary. However, if there are no other options in your case, we always focus on minimally invasive and movement-preserving surgery. Benefit from the vast experience of our spine specialists – whether you are coming to us with chronic low-back pain or advanced spinal disease.

Hip

Hip problems can severely affect your everyday life. Even short distances on foot or physical work can cause severe hip pain. The Schoen Clinic Lorsch therefore specialises in treating hip problems. We first carry out an accurate diagnosis with you to find the cause of your hip problems and then work out the optimal method for treating you. If your hip pain cannot be sufficiently relieved by conservative means, surgery may be useful. The focus here is initially on joint-preserving and, if possible, minimally invasive methods. For certain conditions, such as advanced hip arthrosis, using an artificial hip joint can also help you better cope with your everyday life without pain. Our goal is always to find the best method of treatment for you. 

Our satisfied patients are proof of our first-class medical care. More than 90 percent of our patients recommend us. In addition, we have obtained the "Top National Orthopaedic Hospital" award from Focus-Gesundheit magazine. This reflects our medical standards as far as treating hips is concerned.

Knee

Knee pain and problems with knee joints can have various causes. With their many ligaments, tendons, muscles, as well as menisci and cartilage surfaces, knee joints are very complex. 

At the Schoen Clinic Lorsch between Darmstadt and Mannheim, we first determine the cause of your knee pain. On this basis, we work with you to develop a targeted treatment plan.

Our goal is to alleviate your knee pain in such a way that you can cope with your everyday life with as little pain as possible. Conservative treatment methods, such as physiotherapy with appropriate knee exercises, can achieve initial positive results. However, once these are exhausted, knee surgery up to installation of an artificial knee joint can be useful. We will discuss with you which treatment method is best for you for having a healthy knee joint.

Shoulder

You use your shoulder joints a lot for everyday activities, but also for sports activities. Shoulder problems can therefore seriously restrict your mobility in everyday life. Your shoulder pain could be caused by a severe shoulder injury or damage related to wear, such as osteoarthritis in the shoulder joint. In order to decide which treatment method is best for you, an accurate diagnosis is important. Whether arthroscopic shoulder surgery, the treatment of shoulder injuries, such as bone fractures or shoulder dislocations, or the installation of an artificial shoulder joint – in our clinic, you receive care at the highest medical standards.

At the Schoen Clinic Lorsch, between Darmstadt and Mannheim, we offer our patients the best possible treatment. Our shoulder specialists initially rely on conservative or joint-preserving treatment methods. Our goal is to always restore the mobility of your shoulder joint and therefore your level of activity as much as possible.
