The Gelenkpunkt difference

We are what we repeatedly do

We emphasise the holistic care of our patients. We perform outpatient treatments before and after surgical procedures at our medical practice at the Tivoli stadium. For surgical procedures including an inpatient or outpatient stay, our services as attending physicians are available at the Privatklinik Hochrum near Innsbruck.

Our team’s goal is to provide our patients with the highest quality treatmentand care focused on evidence-based science and using the latest surgical techniques and implants. Our commitment to scientific research and teaching  forms the foundation of our medical activities.

Gelenkpunkt believes in introducing and developing the latest treatment and diagnostic options for injuries and diseases of the musculoskeletal system.

Our areas of focus

Knee

The knee joint forms the moveable connection between the thigh bone and the tibia. The knee, a joint gear of sorts, is the largest joint in the human body. The bending is composed of rolling and sliding motions. Rotation in a bent state is possible. Sliding, rolling and turning motions are enabled. During its lifetime, it may bend and stretch millions of times.

Ankle joint

Amongst the foot joints, one can distinguish between the upper and lower ankle joint. When we speak about the ankle joint in daily life, we actually mean the upper ankle joint. This joint is formed by the knuckles of the tibia and fibula and by the talus (ankle bone). It allows for lifting and lowering the foot around an axis that runs from the inner to the outer ankle. The lower ankle joint is composed of the talus on the one side and the heel bone and the navicular bone on the other side. It enables the inner, medial margin (supination) or the outer, medial margin (pronation) of the foot to be lifted from the ground.

Hips

The hip socket and the head of the thigh bone (femur head) are connected by the hip joint. Half of the femoral head is surrounded by the hip socket. This provides the hip joint with good, bony stability. This stability is additionally supported by a cartilage seam, a joint lip.

Shoulder

The shoulder joint is formed by the humeral head and the shoulder blade. It forms the connection of the arm to the torso. It is the most flexible joint in the body with largest range of motion.

Childhood sports injuries

In addition to joint surgery for adults, the team of doctors at the Gelenkpunkt medical practice have established consultation services for childhood sports injuries. This aim of focusing special attention on the unique needs of young patients is to make visiting the doctor less intimidating and to offer the most positive rehabilitation programme possible in combination with physiotherapy.
