Professor Sauerbier has almost 30 years of experience in the treatment and care of national and
international top athletes, but also recreational athletes with hand injuries. The advice and
treatment and the creation of a precise diagnosis for professional, competitive and recreational
athletes are carried out with great care and are individually tailored to the needs of the athlete.

If necessary, the latest imaging diagnostics (e.g. 3-Tesla MRT, high-resolution thin-layer CT), but also
other methods, are used in cooperation with doctors from a wide variety of disciplines. The aim is to
heal the injury or its consequences either through conservative treatment or a highly specialized
hand surgical operation.

In particular, fractures of the hand and wrist (e.g. scaphoid fractures, hamate fractures) as well as
ligament and tendon injuries and injuries to the triangular disc (TFCC) are frequently seen and
treated. The injuries occur in a wide variety of sports such as tennis, golf, soccer, handball, volleyball,
basketball, cycling, skiing and snowboarding, etc.

If an operation is necessary after a sports injury or a chronic degenerative disease, an early individual
rehabilitation program is set up together with a certified hand therapist. Parts of the outpatient
rehabilitation can also be carried out in the PROFESSOR SAUERBIER practice, which enables an
intensive interdisciplinary dialogue in the interests of the patients.

Treatment Spectrum

Second Opinion Consultations

With a serious illness or the consequences of an injury that affects quality of life, there is often a great deal of uncertainty, regardless of whether you yourself or a relative is affected. A fundamental question in these cases is whether and, if so, where, you should undergo treatment. It is essential to find a specialist with a great deal of expertise and, if necessary, an experienced surgeon to ensure that the best possible treatment results are achieved.

A second opinion can help you make the correct decision. With his many years in the field of hand surgery and plastic  reconstructive surgery, Prof. Sauerbier possesses the necessary experience, empathy, and measured thinking to be able to professionally discuss appropriate therapeutic options with patients.

An appointment for a second opinion consultation can easily be arranged in advance. For patients with private health insurance for outpatient treatment, the services are invoiced directly to the health insurance provider. Patients with statutory health coverage can arrange a consultation on a self-funding basis.

Expert Medical Assessment

Expert medical assessments can be used to determine whether the prerequisites for financial compensation are met following injury, illness, or an operation. In his private practice, Prof. Sauerbier personally carries out assessments for private insurance companies, public courts, lawyers, and patients (on a self-funding basis) in the fields of hand and plastic reconstructive surgery. The assessment fee is agreed in advanced.

The aim of the expert assessment is to determine whether the health-related issue of the insured person or patient in each case is a direct result of the accident, illness, or previous medical treatment.

During the assessment, the health condition of the insured person is determined by using the highest standards of medical expertise and from a wholly neutral perspective. All related issues are then presented in laymen-friendly terms. Medical and specialist assessments are prerequisites for insurance companies and courts to make an informed decision on whether to award compensation for the consequences of accidents, illness, or medical treatment.
