In the Orthopedic department of St Luke’s, you will receive specialized care from specialist orthopedic surgeons with extensive experience, deep knowledge and modern training on all the individual subjects of orthopedic surgery. Special departments of orthopedic surgery operate in our hospital. Each individual department is staffed by specialized surgeons and therapists, with the sole aim of treating patients with diseases and problems of the musculoskeletal system.
Diagnostically, the hospital has state-of-the-art magnetic and CT scanners, which offer valuable help in the diagnosis of diseases and injuries of the musculoskeletal system. Therapeutically, five modern fluoroscopic machines (C-arm), including a small one (mini C-arm), help orthopedic surgeons to perform complex surgical operations with great precision and in the best possible way. Modern arthroscopic equipment and advanced technology surgical tools and implantable materials are used daily by the doctors, achieving excellent postoperative results. Our hospital also has five state-of-the-art surgical microscopes used in microsurgery and spine procedures. In addition, state-of-the-art operating theaters, with a vertical air flow system, reduce the risk of surgical infections to a minimum.
Philosophy of the people of the department
“…for the benefit of those who come…”
Doctors, nurses and therapists are constantly at the patient’s side trying all together, as a team, to provide the best possible solution to his problem.
At St Luke’s hospital, arthroscopies were applied for the first time in Northern Greece. At first they only concerned the knee, while later also other joints. Arthroscopy, which was initially only diagnostic, was also applied therapeutically to the knee joint.
Today, in all special orthopedic departments, pioneering operations are performed, such as:
- Cartilage and meniscal transplants
- Unicompartmental arthroplasties
- Reverse shoulder arthroplasties
- Tendon transfers.
