In a society that gets older and requires more mobility, orthopaedic symptoms gain on greater significance.

The orthopaedic clinic of the Uniklinik RWTH Aachen stands in the tradition of its founder Professor Dr. med. Dr. h.c. Friedrich Pauwels. In October 2010, Professor Dr. med. Markus Tingart has assumed the control of the clinic after having operated as the consultant and deputy director of the orthopaedic clinic of the University of Regensburg.

The new medical team of the orthopaedic clinic at the Uniklinik RWTH Aachen has set its objective to develop further the existing orthopaedic focal points and establish new innovative techniques in cooperation with other disciplines.

Our aim is to open the orthopaedic clinic over a long period of time and to cooperate more and more with resident physicians and hospitals in the region of Aachen and on a national basis.

Every year we care for about 15.000 patients and accomplish 1.500 operations. All ailments on the whole range of the conservative and operative orthopaedic discipline are treated in the individual departments and specific surgeries based on recent knowledge.

We would be pleased to welcome you as a patient in our clinic.

Univ.-Prof. Dr. med. Markus Tingart
