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).

Shoulder Pain

Shoulder pain can have many different origins and cause a variety of ailments.

Shoulder prothesis

If there is irreparable damage, the joint function is impaired and the associated pain cannot be treated.

Broken shoulder

A fracture is usually caused by falling directly onto the shoulder or straight arm. A bone fracture can also result in connection with a dislocation.

Impingement Syndrome

Impingement syndrome is the functional impairment of joint mobility. It is mostly caused by degeneration or entrapment of capsular or tendon material.

Frozen Shoulder

A restriction of the active and passive mobility of the shoulder. The cause of this is an inflammation of the synovial membrane and joint capsule.

Rotator Cuff Rupture

The rupture of one or more muscles or tendons of the rotator cuff, a muscle group in the shoulder area, is called a rotator cuff rupture.

Shoulder Dislocation

In the case of a shoulder dislocation, the humerus head dislocates from the joint socket. As a result of one or more shoulder dislocations, injuries can occur, which lead to persistent instability of the joint.

Break of Collarbone

In most cases, the collarbone breaks as a result of a direct fall on the shoulder girdle, for example when mountain biking or skiing and snowboarding.

Lime Shoulder

In the so-called "calcareous shoulder", the tendinosis calcarea, calcium deposits are deposited in the shoulder area for reasons that have not been fully clarified.


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.
