The range of orthopaedic services offered by Dr Sven Hufnagel
Therapy begins after a comprehensive diagnosis. It is our aim to avoid surgical interventions as much as possible and instead achieve recovery with sensible conservative treatment. In addition to traditional methods, this also includes alternative methods. Depending on the diagnosis and conditions we offer you the following services.
Acupuncture is a component of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and therefore a very longstanding healing method that has since been applied successfully worldwide. In addition to classic body acupuncture, I practice ear acupuncture and permanent acupuncture needles.
Shock wave therapy
Shock wave therapy is a modern pain therapy that is increasingly showing success for the treatment of musculoskeletal complaints. The shock waves can provide valuable diagnostic information and are a major therapeutic option in the treatment of orthopaedic conditions.
Hyaluronic acid therapy
The targeted injection of hyaluronic acid into the affected joint can relieve pain and slow down osteoarthritis in joints. As a result, surgery can often be avoided or at least delayed for a longer time.
Treatment of osteoporosis
Osteoporosis is a systemic disease of the skeleton in which bone density decreases. This increases the risk of bone fracture. In order to diagnose osteoporosis we assess bone density and other crucial laboratory parameters in cooperation with our partners.
Should a surgery be necessary due to your specific diagnosis, we will carry out the procedure ourselves or refer you to a specialist. We perform the following procedures ourselves: hip and knee endoprosthetics, knee arthroscopy, foot surgery and minor soft tissue interventions (e.g. soft tissue removal, CTS, ligament splitting).
It is our aim to avoid surgical interventions as much as possible and instead achieve recovery with sensible conservative treatment after carefully examining each patient.
Neural therapy is an alternative method. From a naturopathic perspective, the aim of this treatment is to stimulate certain reflex zones and impaired functions by means of injections into the skin.
Minimally invasive spine therapy
The spine can often be the cause of back pain. We offer minimally invasive pain therapy to treat this common disease. This includes periradicular therapy (PRT) and facet joint infiltration.
We offer a vast range of additional services for the treatment and diagnosis of orthopaedic diseases, such as kinesio taping and ultrasound guided injections. We also work with partners across Berlin for instances of measuring your spine or analysing your movement sequences.
