Regenerative cartilage therapy
Cartilage damage is still one of the most common pathologies requiring treatment. Far too often, only joint replacement is suggested as a treatment.
In addition to the established method of hyaluron therapy, there are new regenerative methods which we are the first practice in Schleswig-Holstein to use.
For about ten years now, regenerative cell therapy, in which mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) from bone marrow or fat tissue (stroma-vascular fraction = SVF®) are injected. This is often referred to as "autologous fat therapy" and represents an interesting alternative and supplement to the already established conservative therapy methods. The mode of action of these cells is not fully understood, but there is much evidence that these cells have abilities to block inflammation and differentiate into bone and cartilage cells, as well as to coordinate tissue regeneration in cartilage defects by releasing bioactive factors. We use mesenchymal stem cells from adipose tissue, as the extraction of the stem cells can be carried out more gently here than from bone marrow.
Studies have already shown promising results after intra-articular injection for the treatment of gonarthrosis (knee joint arthrosis) with regard to pain reduction as well as improvement of function and quality of life.
We always use SVF® in combination with autologous conditioned plasma (ACP® also called "autologous blood therapy") in order to use the activated platelets and the growth factors concentrated in the ACP®.
manual therapy can be performed on an outpatient basis in our office by appointment.

Manual therapy can be used to treat symptoms.
Manual therapy is usually a benefit of the statutory health insurance, health insurance or occupational accident insurance. Exceptions to this are some natural therapies.

Herewith we would like to inform you about what is meant by IGeL services and which ones are offered in our practice.
By taking an interest in these diagnostic and treatment measures, you show an extended interest in maintaining and strengthening your health. These methods are able to positively influence a health disorder, to prevent a deterioration (disease prevention), to stimulate your self-healing powers, to reduce or discontinue medication, as well as to achieve an increase in the quality of life.
We will only present methods that we use ourselves or that we are convinced of their effectiveness through years of experience.
What are IGeL services?
IGeL-(services) are individual health services that supplement the catalog of the statutory KV (Kassenärztliche Vereinigung) and are recommended by physicians. The costs for these services must be paid by the patients themselves, or you can find out whether the costs for these services are covered by your health insurance in our practice or from your health insurance. Your health insurance company medical care sufficiently ensures your health situation. In addition, every insured person has the option of taking out additional insurance for more extensive treatment measures and therapies or of paying for these directly.
Many patients are interested in a supplementary health offer, which includes in particular preventive (disease-preventive) and alternative healing methods.
You can find the range of individual health services we offer here.
