University of Munich (TUM) - Department of Orthopaedic Sportsmedicine, Klinikum Rechts der Isar
DE - Munich, DE 81675 - Ismaningerstreet 22
Fellowship Program Director: Univ. Prof. Andreas B. Imhoff MD.
The Department of Orthopaedic Sports Medicine originated from the Olympic Summer Games 1972 in Munich, and includes 2 separate centers. The department is headed by Prof. Andreas Imhoff since 1996. The location of the first center is our outpatient clinic within the Olympic Campus at the Sports Faculty of the Technical University of Munich. The second center includes 3 operating theaters and 2 clinical wards at the university hospital Klinikum rechts der Isar of the Technical University of Munich. A modern physiotherapy facility is affiliated for early and accelerated ambulant as well as stationary physical rehabilitation. A specialty of our department is focused on the care of high professional athletes as well as on patients performing recreational sports. This includes both the operative and conservative treatment regimes together with prevention and rehabilitation programs. Our clinical team includes 6 consultants, 12 physicians, 2 sports scientist, and 6 physical therapists. Minimal-invasive surgical treatment of acute injuries of the musculoskeletal system and the treatment of degenerative lesions of large joints are the main focus of our department, especially in the knee, shoulder, ankle, and elbow joint. Predominantly advanced arthroscopic techniques are performed. Specifically, Shoulder dislocations with lesions of the capsuloligamentous complex are arthroscopically reconstructed with bioabsorbable suture anchor systems 4, 10. In rotator cuff tears, the arthroscopic single- and double-row reconstruction techniques represent the golden standard in our department. Furthermore, novel arthroscopically-assisted reconstruction techniques of the acromioclavicular joint in acute and chronic cases were developed in our department 17, 21. Another main area are treatment strategies for cartilage lesions especially to address the high demands of active patients to restorate their sports ability. For this purpose, all validated cartilage therapies are available26 (microfracture, autologous chondrocyte transplantation and osteochondral transplantation). In our molecular and biomechanical laboratories, various fields in sports medicine research are attended. Especially new techniques for cartilage restoration like gentherapeutic approaches with growth factors15, 23, 24, 27-29 and iron marking of chondrocytes for MR-imaging are studied. In addition, the influence of stem cells on cartilage and tendon repair is evaluated. In addition, motion analysis of high performance junior elite javelin throwers and volleyball players with special respect to early structural and clinical changes were evaluated. Many of these projects are supported by different grants of research and other scientific institutions like the German Research Foundation (DFG), the European Union (EU), the AO Foundation, the German Osteoarthritis Help, the German-Speaking Arthroscopy Association (AGA), the German Institute for Sport Sciences (BISp), and others.

Deutsche Schulter- und Ellenbogenklinik, Sportklinik Stuttgart
DE - D-70372 Stuttgart - Taubenheimstrasse 8
Fellowship Program Director: PD Dr. med. Frieder Mauch
The Sportklinik Stuttgart is an orthopedic specialist clinic with a nationwide focus. Due to the regional proximity to the Olympic base at Stuttgart and the wide-ranging medical support of various sports clubs and major sporting events by the clinic, one of the main areas of activity is the treatment of sports-related injuries, particularly by arthroscopic procedures. Treatment options range from conservative, arthroscopic and open procedures, to arthroplasty. As part of a high degree of specialization, the treatment of the patients takes place in different departments according to the area of injury. The department of shoulder-and elbow-surgery is headed by PD Dr. Mauch and three senior physicians. Around 1700 interventions are carried out each year, ranging from common to complex reconstructive procedures, especially by arthroscopic interventions. Another focus is the alloplastic joint replacement. Outpatient Clinics run on a daily base. A high value is placed on the best and optimal treatment of patients according to the latest scientific findings. Therefore the Sportklinik Stuttgart is already a designated teaching center for members of the DVSE, GOTS and AGA. Additionally, apart from teaching specialty trainees, university students are regularly trained in house as well. A special feature of the Sportklinik Stuttgart is the close link between imaging diagnostics and surgical treatment. PD Dr Mauch is one of a few orthopedic surgeons who also has a special expertise in the field of sectional imaging procedures and is a certified trainer for magnetic resonance imaging of the professional association of orthopedics and trauma surgery (BVOU). In this context, regular training courses in MRI and CT findings are carried out in the Sportklinik, and courses on arthroscopy and MRI take place in the cadaver lab. • Memberships and activities PD Dr. Frieder Mauch Memberships • CEO of the German society of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery (DVSE) • CEO of the Society for Orthopaedic Traumatologic Sports Medicine (GOTS) • Member of le Société Européenne pour la Chirurgie de l'Epaule et du Coude (SECEC) • Member of the European Society for Surgery of the Shoulder and the Elbow (ESSSE) • Member of the German Society for Arthroplasty (AE) • Member of the German Society for Orthopedics and Orthopedic Surgery (DGOOC) • CEO of the department sectional imaging procedures within DGOOC / DGU • Member of the Society for Arthroscopy and Joint Surgery (AGA) • Member of the German Society for Sports Medicine and Prevention (DGSP) • Member of the Association of South German Orthopedists and Trauma Surgeons (DVSOU) • Member of the Professional association for orthopedics and trauma surgery (BVOU) • Member of AO Trauma Europe Activities • lecturer at the University of Ulm • Congress President DVSE 2017 • team doctor of the basketball team MHP RIESEN Ludwigsburg • team doctor of the handball team TVB 1989 Stuttgart • ATP doctor of the international tennis tournament (MercedesCup) in Stuttgart • certified trainer for magnetic resonance imaging of the professional association of orthopedics and trauma surgery (BVOU) • Instructor of the Society for Arthroscopy and Joint Surgery (AGA
