During each visit, I provide a thorough discussion about causes, course (prevention?) and treatment options. This is in conjunction with a thorough physical examination. Only when a patient correctly understands their situation can they make a reasonable decision about their health.
A “clean” diagnosis is important for successful therapy. In order to maintain this, a detailed medical examination, a thorough physical examination and purposeful diagnostics are required. From this, a concept for treatment is defined together.
A modern, high-resolution ultrasound device is available in practice for imaging procedures. Our own digital X-ray machine is planned to be installed in March 2017. Until the implementation, both conventional X-ray and MRI as well as CT examinations can be reached within a few minutes of the practice at “radiomedicum Mainzer Landstr. 191”.
All wounds, which do not require hospital treatment on account of the extent and need for narcosis, can be supplied lege artis (sutures, bandages, etc.). These include e.g. bruises, cuts, tears or lacerations, etc. The exception to this rule are accidents at work. Thy must be handled by an “accident insurance physician” (German: “Durchgangsarzt”).
Modern treatment methods are used and ensure a regular healing process for fractures, inflammation-induced immobilisation, post-operative aftercare or injuries.
For many injuries, orthopedic devices are necessary to allow the damaged structures to heal or to allow sufficient stability and relief. Depending on the situation and necessity, medical devices can be prescribed. Their use and duration of use are determined together.
