In most university hospitals or orthopedics-specialized hospitals in Germany. There is no such a specific department for sports medicine. Sports medicine is not only about arthroscopic operations. This is an ignorant and limited impression. Maybe I will be criticized by some top specialists of sports medicine for what I said. But I must tell the truth, which has been proved by the international colleagues. The worldwide renowned Schön Klinik München Harlaching, became one of the first FIFA Medical Centers of Excellence in 2007. Every year hundreds of top Olympic athletes and football players receive treatment and rehabilitation there. They do not have a sports medicine center. But they have specialists for sports injury of the spine at their spine center, they have specialists for sports injury of the joints at their knee, hip, shoulder and elbow center, they have specialists for sports injury of the ankle at their food and ankle center, they have specialists for pediatric sports injury at their pediatric and neuro-orthopedics center, they have specialists for sports injury of the hand at their hand, mircro- and plastic center. There are 210 beds at Schön Klinik München Harlaching, around 4,000 surgeries for sports injury are operated here at all sub-specialties. Patients with all kinds of sports injury can receive top-class specialized treatment here. Prof. Mayer is not only a worldwide renowned master in minimally invasive spine surgery, he is also a top specialist in sports medicine of the spine. In Germany, no matter in university hospitals or orthopedics-specialized hospitals, sports medicine is attached great importance to. Germany won four FIFA World Cups. Sports are well-received and popularized such as swimming and skiing. In every department of every hospital, sports medicine is deeply rooted. Their strategy is to cultivate specialists in sports medicine, in different sub-specialties including spine surgery, shoulder, hip, knee, foot and ankle surgery, pediatric orthopedics, hand surgery, synergistically and efficiently.
