Faced with a large number of orthopedic surgeons, many patients feel insecure when looking for a doctor. How to find a suitable orthopedic surgeon in Germany? Which one is reliable, technically competent and, on top of that, empathetic? Through the Internet, all patients now have many physician review portals available, but their contents are subjectively colored. Because the wishes of foreign patients to the orthopedic surgeons in Germany are as diverse as the patients themselves: some prefer cool, data-oriented experts who rely solely on laboratory values ​​and imaging techniques such as x-rays and ultrasound. Others want a compassionate, conversational counterpart that takes into account psychosomatic aspects. Third, in turn, trust only experienced "craftsmen", such as experienced surgeons.

In view of such requirements, many doctors feel overwhelmed, especially as they suffer from increasing cost and efficiency pressure. Despite all the mistakes and shortcomings of our healthcare system, German doctors are still among the best in the world. They conduct research, optimize diagnostics, establish new therapies and thus set trends for the well-being of patients.
