Excellence in endoprosthetics: hip and knee joints

The Department of Special Orthopaedic Surgery and Traumatology at the Vivantes Auguste-Viktoria Hospital, Centre for Endoprosthetics, is a nationally and internationally renowned department for the replacement of artificial joints, in particular for the hip and knee.

The Vivantes Auguste-Viktoria Hospital offers a comprehensive range of services, from minimally invasive arthroscopic joint surgery and primary endoprosthetics to highly complex and lengthy replacement operations. This requires many years of wide-ranging experience in joint surgery, as demonstrated by Professor Heino Kienapfel, Senior Consultant at the Department of Special Orthopaedic Surgery and Traumatology. For many years, Professor Kienapfel chaired the German Endoprosthetics Register association and now heads up the endoprosthetics register working group of the German Society for Orthopaedics and Orthopaedic Surgery. Each patient is examined using digital calibrated X-rays, MRI s and CT s, which provides the basis for planning the joint surgery and precisely determining suitable implants. The team, which includes doctors from the departments for anaesthesia & pain therapy, radiology and physiotherapy & rehabilitation, then work together to draw up a tailor-made concept for each patient. State-of-the-art anaesthetic and pain therapy procedures enable a painfree process of rehabilitation for patients, who can regain their mobility as quickly as possible while making full use of their replacement joint. The implant materials used as replacement joints are chosen for their outstanding performance and durability (ceramic-on-ceramic bearings). Highgrade materials ensure long-lasting results, enabling the replacement joint to function well for more than 25 years. Endoprosthetics is therefore also very appealing to elderly patients as it allows them to live without pain even beyond the age of 80.

Besides the centre for joint surgery, the department has a centre for spinal diseases and a specialist unit for shoulder and foot disorders. As in many other countries, Germanyʼs population is ageing, and people increasingly suffer from multiple problems as they reach old age. Taking an integrated approach, the Department of Special Orthopaedic Surgery and Traumatology uses evidence-based therapies to treat patientsʼ multiple orthopaedic/traumatology disorders simultaneously.

Minimally invasive surgery is increasingly the preferred option for operations at the Department of Special Orthopaedic Surgery and Traumatology as it minimises the incision to be made in the body, prevents pain almost entirely, enables patients to regain their mobility quickly and reduces the length of hospital stays. Nowadays, for example, a slipped disc in the neck area can be operated on using minimally invasive techniques within a few days, with physiotherapy starting just a day afterwards. Minimally invasive surgery is also possible for other joints in the lower and upper limbs. Professor Kienapfelʼs entire team provides patients with expert care, achieving excellent outcomes and ensuring maximum satisfaction for patients from Germany and the rest of the world.

The department has just opened a new luxury ward offering the standard you would expect to find in a hotel rather than a hospital. It also offers state-of-the-art technologies for imaging, anaesthesia, surgery, physiotherapy, rehabilitation and even intensive care.

Zwinger Palace

O Chateau de Versailles de Dresden

O Zwinger Palace é um dos melhores exemplos da arquitetura barroca tardia na Alemanha. Construído entre 1710 e 1728 pelo arquiteto Pöppelmann, o Palácio Zwinger foi usado para grandes festas e torneios. Hoje, o complexo barroco de pavilhões, galerias e pátios interiores é a casa de grandes museus e obras. A Madonna Sistina de Rafael você encontrará lá. O acervo de Porcelana tambem é belíssimo. O Arsenal também é muito interessante se você curte trajes e armas. Se você não quiser entrar em nenhum museu, vá pelo menos para andar pelos jardins e admirar o "Kronentor", que é o portão com a coroa.

Asisi Panometer

Deesden : 1945

Setenta anos depois do bombardeio de Dresden, na Segunda Guerra Mundial, um panorama de 360 ​​graus que mostra a cidade destruída foi revelado na cidade. O artista Yadegar Asisi criou uma imagem circular de 100 metros de largura e 30 metros de altura que mostra Dresden após os devastadores ataques aéreos dos aliados. Entre 13-15 fevereiro de 1945, apenas alguns meses antes do fim da guerra, os bombardeiros britânicos e norte-americanos destruíram mais de 90 por cento do centro histórico da cidade, matando cerca de 25.000 pessoas. Mais de 3.900 toneladas de bombas de alto poder explosivo e dispositivos incendiários dizimaram marcos importantes do barroco em uma cidade que é considerada "a Florença do Elba". O panorama, Dresden: 1945, fica aberto de 24 de Janeiro à 31 de maio de 2015, no gasômetro Panometer. http://www.asisi.de/en/panoramas/dresden-1945/photo-gallery.html

Durante a Segunda Guerra Mundial, a igreja foi bombardeada e ficou em escombros até 1994, quando um programa de restauração foi iniciado. Hoje, é um lembrete dos dias antes da guerra e um dos lugares que você vai ter uma história imparcial sobre a Segunda Guerra Mundial.

Christmas Markets in Cologne

Christmas in Germany

Christmas may be over, but 11 months from now the season will be upon us and you should spend 2015 in Germany! Why? The Christmas season is in Germany is like no other. There is no other place in the world where you can experience countless, and famous, Christmas markets that will without a doubt, put you in the holiday spirit. While the markets are open all day, it’s best to visit at night. Many towns across Germany have decorated the streets and market squares with evergreen-lined stalls, twinkling lights and religious (and not so religious) statues to kick off the holiday season as festively as possible. If you are a foreigner in Germany at this time of year, it's difficult to miss home when Germany puts on an excellent show at Christmas time. No matter what German city you are in, you can find families and friends of all ages, walking around shopping for unique and traditional gifts, sipping on mulled wine and indulging in delicious German food. You will hear laughter amongst the Christmas carols that will make you forget about your toes and fingers tingling from the cold temperature at this time of year. It’s truly a traditional delight for all of the senses. No trip to the German Christmas markets is complete without trying a class of glühwein, which is a combinations of red wine, spices and sugar. This traditional drink will keep you cozy and happy. Hungry? No problem! There are many stalls that sell traditional German Christmas Market food and snacks for you to enjoy such as bratwurst, mutzen, schmachtlappen and reibekuchen. In a world where Christmas present shopping consists of the latest technology and thoughtless gift certificates, it’s nice to be able to find traditional hand carved gifts at several stalls. Not to mention, mountains of oranges and nuts, the original gift that St. Nicholas gave to people hundreds of years ago at this time of year. While many countries around the world celebrate Christmas, no other place does it like Germany. So, if you feel that this time of year has been lacking in holiday spirit, take a trip over to this European country and be reminded what Christmas time is all about.

Canadians First Time at a Traditional Co-ed Spa

Visiting a co-ed spa was a foreign concept to me, being born and raised in Canada. Nudity in my culture is reserved for your own home where some have issues looking at themselves in the mirror. The gym change room is another publicly acceptable nude room, many of us have mastered the art of undressing by using a towel without exposing our private parts. My wife, Kristen, and I walked into that spa and let go of our Canadian mentalities. I undressed in the co-ed change room next to a woman in her 60s. She had kind eyes, a warm smile and no knowledge of nude shame as she stripped down without embarrassment. Kristen and I entered the spa, dropped our towels and were liberated, free for all to gaze upon! There were adults of all ages and body type, casually conversing as if being nude was more comfortable than being clothed. I had to constantly remind myself that people are not judgemental of bodies here, something I have never experienced in North America. Nudity is very much a part of the culture here. This German spa was the first place I have experienced harmony and equality among class, age, sex. Nobody knows whether you walked in with an Armani suit or a ripped t-shirt, you are all equal, beautiful and free. I immediately felt unjudged and part of the community. The architecture and decor of the spa was heavenly. Stone tiles lead the way to a large open room with lounging chairs and a marble swimming pool. The ambiance is zen, with only the sound of calm conversations and light background music. Buddha heads, candles, bamboo designs and waterfalls decorate the many rooms with relaxation and beauty. The outdoor rooftop contained hot tubs and saunas to keep you warm and steamy as well as cold pools and a bucket of snow used to cool your body down before jumping back into the hot tub. I left with my body relaxed, my skin clean, and my mind at peace. I learned that the human body is a beautiful gift which should be appreciated and accepted. Nudity is our original state and should be more widely accepted.

Herrenhauser Gärten Grotto

Niki the St.-Phalle at her best

A couple of years ago a very wealthy friend of mine, who owns an work of art by French artist Niki de St.-Phalle, told me included Hannover in a trip to Europe just to see Nikki's art in town. I had totally forgotten this until I came to Hannover and found out that Niki's works are all over the place. There are three Nanas in the Sculpture Mile downtown and an ancient grotto at the Herrenhauser Gardens was redone by Niki, who filled with her Nanas, a colorful Ganesha and a myriad of kaleidoscopic mirrors. Before her death, she donated her private collection to Hannover's Sprengel Museum, and will appear in the new wing due to open late in 2016.

Elbphilarmonie

The next big thing

Due to open in 2017, the Elbphilarmonie is a ~very~ controversial project among Hamburg's taxpayers. But its sheer originality and generous public spaces will definitely put Hamburg on the map of people who've never thought of visiting this vibrant town. The building will contain three concert halls, two hotels, apartments, shops and a public square between the base of the bulding (a former wharehouse) and the new, Gaudí-esque top. You can count on Hamburg becoming as popular with foreign travelers as it is among German visitors.
