Professor Rüdiger von Eisenhart-Rothe: From minimally invasive treatment to major surgery

The Clinic and Department for Orthopaedics and Sports Orthopaedics has extensive experience in treating musculoskeletal disorders and specialises in a wide range of treatment. The clinic's new Medical Director, Professor Rüdiger von Eisenhart-Rothe, aims to continue expanding the current areas of expertise.

In the orthopaedics department, the focus is on performing operations on the major joints, and in particular the insertion of endoprostheses for the hip and knee joints and all types of surgery to replace endoprostheses. The clinic leads the way in patient care, providing custom-made endoprostheses. “We have expanded the primary endoprosthetics treatment that we offer to particular target groups, such as younger patients and those with allergies,” says von Eisenhart-Rothe. “If an implant needs to be replaced because it is showing signs of wear or becoming loose, the clinic's long-standing experience comes to bear in the operation to repair the defect, even in the severest of cases. In such situations, we use modern modular endoprostheses and biological replacement procedures.”

Another group of patients in which Professor von Eisenhart-Rothe is very interested are people with orthopaedic tumours. When bones or soft tissue are affected by tumours, removing the tumours by surgical means often represents a patient's only chance of recovery. Innovative surgical techniques to repair bone and soft tissue defects, combined with the clinic's decades of experience, enable the tumour to be completely removed in most cases while largely preserving the limbs and retaining their function. The comprehensive range of treatment on offer includes therapy provided by specially trained psychologists. A musculoskeletal tumour centre was set up to further improve the clinic's outstanding expertise in treating cancer patients and researching new therapy concepts. The centre is supported by the Wilhelm Sander Therapy Unit for Bone and Soft Tissue Sarcomas.

Besides endoprosthetics and tumour orthopaedics, the clinic consists of four further specialist units. Joint-preserving therapy is often used for the hips and knee joints. Professor von Eisenhart-Rothe and private lecturer Dr Hans Gollwitzer, who heads up the joint-preserving hip surgery unit, aim to diagnose and treat misalignment and signs of wear affecting the hip at an early stage, thereby eliminating or postponing the need for an endoprosthetic implant. Besides hip arthroscopy, the treatments used include all types of bone realignment surgery on the pelvis and thighs.

A team specialising in septic surgery is available at the clinic to diagnose and treat infections of the bone, soft tissue and endoprostheses as, according to Professor von Eisenhart-Rothe, “an infection in an artificial joint is always a critical situation for the patient.” It goes without saying that the clinic has the necessary infrastructure and appropriately trained staff to ensure the highest standards of hygiene at all times, working in cooperation with the clinic's microbiology institute and hygiene department.

Finally, the clinic specialises in foot surgery and paediatric orthopaedics, in which the areas of focus include treating and researching rare musculoskeletal diseases.

In terms of patient care, Professor von Eisenhart-Rothe says it is important that “we provide state-of-the-art implants, non-aggressive surgical methods and new concepts for pain therapy as well as optimum therapeutic aids to ensure patients regain their mobility as soon as possible and can quickly return to work and their everyday life.”

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

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.
