Shoulder surgery has developed into an independent specialist field in orthopedic and traumatological surgery since the late 1990s. Their development is based on three factors: Improvement of diagnostic imaging (MRI and MR arthrography), development of minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery, reliability of shoulder prostheses, the effectiveness of rehabilitation protocols. The most common shoulder diseases are: lesions (damage) of the rotator cuff tendon, the actual "motor" of the shoulder, ankylosis of the shoulder (frozen shoulder), also known as capsulitis Shoulder arthrosis, centered or eccentric Lesions in athletes: dislocation (dislocation) of the shoulder, dysfunction of the shoulder joint, fracture of the collarbone, fracture of the greater tuberosity (protruding bone on the humerus).
Rotator Cuff Tear

Rotator Cuff Tear occurs when one or more muscles or tendons in the rotator cuff are either torn, worn, or impinged. The tendons gradually weaken and wear out.


Arthrosis is a disease that occurs when the cartilage is not well lubricated or is overly strained, so that the surfaces rub against each other and the cartilage deteriorates. This can lead to an inflammatory reaction in the joint.


Impingement translates to ''pinching''. Tendons run between the humeral head and the acromion, which are very important for the mobility and function of the shoulder.

Long Biceps Tendinitis

Biceps Tendinitis is an inflammation or tear of the upper biceps tendon, also called the long head of the biceps tendon. It connects the biceps muscle to the bone in the shoulder socket.

Calcific Tendinopathy

In the case of the disease known as "Calcific Tendinopathy", calcium is deposited in the shoulder area causing an inflammatory reaction.

Frozen Shoulder

Frozen Shoulder is also known as shoulder stiffness because of the resulting 'freezing' of the shoulder joint. In other words, the shoulder joint becomes increasingly immobile and stiff.

Shoulder Instability

Shoulder Instability arises when the ligaments or the labrum around the shoulder joint are stretched, torn, or detached, allowing the shoulder head to move fully or partially out of the socket.

AC Joint Arthritis

Acromioclavicular Joint Arthritis refers to an injury to the ligamentous apparatus that can cause misalignments or dysfunctions in the joint.


Tennis / Golfer Arm

In tennis elbows, the irritation at the origin of the tendons in the extensor muscles of the wrist causes pain, while in golfers' arms the flexors in the wrist and muscles on the inside of the elbow are affected.


In the case of chronic pain, the arthroscopy also offers extensive diagnostic and therapeutic options on the elbow.

Prosthetic elbow

Compared to the knee joint, the corresponding joint of the lower extremity, osteoarthritis of the elbow joint is rare. In most cases, an accident with a joint fracture is the cause of later osteoarthritis of the elbow.
