General Information

The department of orthopaedic surgery at the Uniklinik RWTH Aachen is lead by M. Univ.-Prof. Dr. med. Markus Tingart since 2010.

We care for about 15.000 patients and accomplish 1.500 operations per year.
Meanwhile, we treat all ailments of conservative and operative orthopaedics.

Orthopaedic outpatients' clinic

Generally, you can contact us during our out-patient surgery. Subsequently, further treatment can either be out-patient or stationary. If an operation is required, we will discuss all details with you in advance. Please take along all your medical reports from previous medical examinations (particularly radiographs, computer-assisted tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)).

You can find our orthopaedic outpatients’ clinic on the 5th floor, 2nd corridor. You can arrange an appointment via phone (no. +49 241 80-89589) or our appointment request online form.

Statutory health insurance patients need a letter of referral per quarter year from their general practitioner, casualty surgeon or orthopaedist. Of course, this letter of referral is not required in case of emergency.

Your stay in our clinic – outpatients' care

Our orthopaedic ward is located on the 8th floor of the building. In case of severe complaints, the treatment in our operative intensive-care medicine and intermediate care wards is as well possible.
