THE SHOULDER

The shoulder is the ball joint with the largest movement radius in the body. For everyday life as well as for sports activities, it is essential that it can function without pain. When all standard procedures have failed, our differentiated, varied operating methods can restore the function of the shoulder, thus improving the quality of life of the patient.
