About MD J. Hofstaetter

In order to be able to achieve an optimal treatment success in my patients and to be able to do operative interventions at the highest level, I have specialized myself in surgery on the hip and knee joint. I've done years of training at the most prestigious clinics in the US and Australia. Due to this specialization, I can offer my patients a wide range of simple conservative therapies, arthroscopic techniques, joint preserving operations, minimally invasive implantation of artificial hip and knee joints, complex prosthesis replacement surgery and revision surgery.

The Orthopedic Hospital Speising is located in the 13th district in Vienna and is one of the leading and largest competence centers for diseases and pain in the musculoskeletal system in Europe. It consists of 6 orthopedic departments, a Department of Physical Medicine and Orthopedic Rehabilitation, a Gait and Motion Analysis Laboratory and an affiliated Magnetic Resonance Institute.

The II Department, where I work as a senior physician, is the special department for artificial joint replacement (arthroplasty) and enjoys a national and international top reputation.

The hospital is newly renovated or extended and all rooms are large, bright, friendly and modern equipped. Furthermore, a highly motivated, competent and friendly team of doctors, nurses and therapists are available there. The costs of the operation in Speising will be covered by your normal compulsory insurance (eg WGKK, NÖGKK, BVA, etc).

If you have additional insurance, you can enjoy the special-class station in Speising.
