dr. helge schmitz

dr. helge schmitz was educated and trained at the university hospitals in wuerzburg and duesseldorf / germany on the field of orthopedics and orthopedic surgery. during this time he specialized in surgery of the knee and shoulder including joint replacements, revisions and arthroscopic surgery.

in 2006 he set up in his own practice in freiburg / germany. dr. schmitz is focussed on arthroscopic surgery, based on the development in this field leading to increasing possibilities in treating patients by minimal invasive techniques. he is a renowned expert in arthroscopic knee surgery and especially the full range of reconstructive arthroscopic surgery of the shoulder.

apart from his surgical expertise he was trained in the entire field of orthopedic diagnostics and conservative orthopedic treatment, including injection techniques of the joints and spine, manual therapy and chiropractics. he developed a special interest in extracorporal shockwave therapy. 

dr. schmitz has been giving numerous workshops and lectures during the last years both, nationally and internationally.

he is very much looking forward to join the team and settle in dubai.

my offer for our patients

injections:

injections addressing inflammatory conditions, beginning arthritis or applied as a tool for differential diagnosticsinjections

our treatment:

joints

  • hyaloronic acid in the case of cartilage damage or osteoarthritis
  • anti-inflammatory injections for example with cortisone, traumeel etc.
  • regenerative injections (orthokine (still to come))

spine

  • facette joints
  • trigger points
  • in the case of herniated discs
    • epidural injections
    • nerve root blockage

manual therapy / chiropractics

we want to restore your health over the long term and help to reduce the pain. functional problems are assessed especially concerning the spine which may lead to back problems or even problems of the complete leg or arm. the goal is to shift segmental dysfunctions of the spine potentially being an underlying causative factor for shoulder pain and pain of the upper and lower limb. we develop a treatment plan based on your symptoms, exam findings and the result of the tests.

 

extracorporal shockwave therapy

we want to enhance your healing process with the extracorporal shock wave therapy (eswt). it is a noninvasive treatment that involves delivery of shock waves to fight inflammation and eliminate the pain and tenderness and is apt to increase metabolism und thus induce healing in several causes for disease.

possible indications

  • trigger points
  • myogelosis
  • chronic back pain
  • subacromial pain syndrome
  • calcifying tendinitis
  • enthesiopathies
    • plantar fasciopathy
    • epicondylitis
    • greater trochanteric pain syndrome
    • achilles tendinopathy
    • jumper´s knee (patellar apex syndrome)
  • tendinopathies
  • non-junction of fracture healing (pseudarthrosis)
  • bone marrow edema
  • morbus schlatter
  • myofascial pain syndrome
  • adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder)
  • osteoarthritis
  • spasticity
  • shin splint syndrome

arthroscopic surgery

by means of the most modern surgical techniques we are able to confirm our diagnoses made during the consultation beforehand and treat disorders inside the joint. it is done by “keyhole surgery” and can mostly be done on an outpatient basis. it allows us to look inside your joint and enables us to address and repair a majority of the articular disorders without making a large incision.

our treatment:

shoulder

  • impingement
  • calcifying tendinitis
  • frozen shoulder
  • anterior and posterior instability
  • tendinitis of the long head of the biceps tendon
  • rotator cuff tears
  • cartilage damage/arthritis

knee

  • meniscus surgery
  • cartilage damage/arthritis
  • soft tissue problems such as synovitis or plica syndrome
