Manuteam Hand Therapy
Hand surgery has established itself as a specialist surgical discipline worldwide over the past few decades. Its aim is to restore functionally important motor and sensory structures such as nerves, vessels and tendons in the smallest of spaces with delicate surgical methods after injuries or illnesses to the hand.
In addition to improving hand function, optimizing postoperative healing is of immense importance. The rehabilitation phases must be optimally designed for the affected patients. For the best possible, effective hand rehabilitation, the specific medical and therapeutic expertise of a hand therapist is extremely important. In the first two weeks after an operation, a qualified hand therapeutic treatment is groundbreaking for the later result in terms of mobility, strength and pain reduction.
In the private medical practice of Prof. Sauerbier, there are collaborations with highly qualified hand therapists. Simultaneous care by the hand surgeon and the hand therapist is therefore seamlessly guaranteed.
Prof. Sauerbier is also an affiliated surgeon for inpatient and outpatient cases at the Hochtaunus Clinic (www.hochtaunus-kliniken.de) located in Bad Homburg vor der Höhe and Usingen. Hochtaunus-Kliniken GmbH is part of an administrative union of hospitals in the Hochtaunus region. The hospitals have over 600 beds and approximately 1,300 employees. Each year, around 21,000 inpatients and 40,000 outpatients receive treatment. Since 1979, the hospitals have been academic teaching hospitals for the Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main and the Justus Liebig University in Gießen. Medical students from both these university complete their years of practical training in Bad Homburg. The sites in Bad Homburg and Usingen were completely re-built in 2014 and are now among the most modern hospitals in the Rhein-Main region.
