ORTHOPARC

– one of the leading European centres of excellence for orthopaedic surgery

Welcome to the ORTHOPARC Clinic in Cologne. We are an orthopaedic private clinic in which demanding patients can expect operative and conservative orthopaedic care at the highest level.

Our main focuses of treatment are hip and knee endoprosthetics, foot and ankle surgery, sports medicine as well as knee, shoulder and spinal surgery. With our own intensive care ward, four operating theatres, an outstanding range of medical equipment and our comprehensive range of services, we are among the leading European centres of excellence for orthopaedic surgery.

Specialised head physicians for all specialist fields

Orthopaedics is a very complex medical field. Therefore, several head physicians are needed to meet all of its requirements. In our clinic, we have at least one specialist chief physician for each field of orthopaedics. The close-knit exchanging of technical knowledge, unrivalled cooperation and good availability of the head physicians are equally important reasons for this “on-site principle”.

Our doctors and nursing team are specialised in the Rapid Recovery® Programme and we were one of the first private clinics in Germany to receive certification for acute pain therapy.

Personal and positive atmosphere for your smooth recovery

The most essential aspects of our service are not visible to the eye: exceptional attention, warmth and intensive personal care by our doctors and the whole clinic team are central elements of our concept. More obvious aspects include the sophisticated surroundings, due to modern architecture, and the perfect catering, which round off your stay in the ORTHOPARC-Clinic.

ORTHOPARC Clinic

– one of only two European reference centres for the Rapid Recovery® Programme in Germany

The Rapid Recovery Programme has been specially developed for patients who have undergone the insertion of an artificial hip or knee joint. At the ORTHOPARC Clinic, we have optimised the whole treatment process so that patients who are safely operated upon and almost free of pain can go home or into rehabilitation after only a few days.

As patient, your health and well-being are at the forefront in all elements of this state-of-the-art programme. You are an active partner in your treatment process – together with your doctors, nursing personnel and physiotherapists.

Testimonial

“I awoke entirely free of pain and was already standing about four hours later to take my first steps.”

Physiotherapie-Patientin-gehend-5358

Swift recovery thanks to acute pain therapy

The aim of pain management is the amelioration of pain to an easily tolerable minimum with the slightest possible medicinal side effects. We attach great importance to ensuring that a stay at our clinic involves little pain. Specially trained nurses – our so-called pain nurses – are here to see to your freedom from pain, in close cooperation with the doctors.

Our motto is: you are not ill; you have only had an operation!

By not experiencing pain, the patients feel considerably better and strengthened – physically and psychologically. In combination with the Rapid Recovery® programme, patients thus recover more quickly and more safely.

Acute pain therapy certificate

The ORTHOPARC Clinic in Cologne is one of the first private clinics in Germany to be awarded the acute pain therapy certificate of TÜV Rhineland  (Technical Control Board). The certificate guarantees our patients strict quality management.

Ambience – a therapeutic environment with positive effects on your recovery

Orthoparc Clinic terrace

The word “ambience” comes from the Italian “ambiente”, meaning “going around, surrounding, enclosing”. For us too, “ambience” means a lot more than just things looking nice – because a pleasant and stress-free environment has a positive influence on the recovery process and supports healing. Friendly colours and our personal all-round service are intended to ensure that you feel entirely comfortable.
