Brief Introduction of Orthopedics Klinik Volmarstein


Orthopedics Klinik Volmarstein is located in Volmarstein, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany. The hospital is a modern specialist clinic that offers a wide range of specializations in addition to the general orthopedics and trauma surgery to improve and expand the treatment of our patients.


5,000 operations per year (including more than 1,400 hip and knee prostheses) and just as many conservatively treated patients speak for our great experience. The goal is to find the optimal treatment for each patient individually.


The Orthopedics Klinik Volmarstein belongs since the founding times of the Evangelical Foundation Volmarstein to its range of services. The clinic was inaugurated in 1931 and was constantly adapted to the requirements of modern, high-quality patient treatment and care.


In addition to the designated Departments of General Orthopedics and Trauma Surgery and Rheumatoid Orthopedics, the Orthopedics Klinik Volmarstein offers pediatric and neuro-orthopedics, tumor orthopedics and revision surgery, hand surgery and foot surgery as well as special departments for the excellent treatment of our patients.

Training is a tradition at the Orthopedics Klinik Volmarstein. Therefore, together with its partner hospital, the Ev. Hospital Hagen-Haspe, founding member of the "Ev. Bildungszentrum für Gesundheits- und Sozialberufe GmbH" based in Iserlohn. The nursing school, which they operate in cooperation with Protestant hospitals in the region, offers 143 apprenticeships.

The Pediatric Orthopedics Department deals with the entire spectrum of treatment of congenital and acquired disorders of the musculoskeletal system in childhood and adolescence.


The aim is to prevent structural damage and functional deficiencies at an early stage and to improve the quality of life of children in order to give them the best possible chances for an active life in our society. This is especially true for children with the most severe disabilities.

The spectrum of pediatric orthopedic diseases is very wide. At the same time, some clinical pictures are very rare, such as in clubfoot 1 child per 1000 births. Competence in their field of expertise can therefore only be achieved through additional specialization. For this reason, special focuses of their activity have been structured, which can be found in the individual sub-headings.

In 2019, Orthopedics Klinik Volmarstein was selected as the “Top Medical Center for Pediatric Orthopedics”.
