Dr. Florian Frisee was a trauma surgeon and sports traumatologist at the Lorenz Böhler Hospital in Vienna from February 2004 to December 2015.

His patients now benefit from his experience in treating acute injury in top athletes.

After an MRI of the knee joint and a full-leg X-ray, the images are converted into a digital 3-D model. This makes it possible to plan the direction and position of cutting and the size of the implant required. Along with ensuring the optimal axis and rotation alignment, this detailed preoperative planning ensures that your new knee implant fits perfectly. In the long run, this focus on precision will significantly improve your mobility and extend the life of your knee implant.

My preferred type of knee prosthesis is made of zirconium-niobium alloy with an oxidized zirconium and ceramic treatment (OXINIUM®). It is the ideal implant for patients with metal sensitivities because its nickel content is below 0.0035%.

The knee replacement is held in place with bone cement, providing immediate weight-bearing capacity. Minor surgical interventions that protect the musculature ensure rapid rehabilitation and a speedy return to pain-free living.


Swift, expert medical assistance in the event of injury or accident:

Our team of trauma surgery and sports traumatology specialists work closely together to ensure patients are provided with coordinated treatment options for musculoskeletal injuries that can be treated on an outpatient basis.

The Arthros Medical Center Vienna has close ties with the radiology department at Döbling Private Hospital. This means that services such as X-rays, ultrasound, CT and MRI scans are available without delay, either privately or under the patient’s health insurance scheme. This close collaboration allows us to make a swift and precise diagnosis of musculoskeletal problems.

The majority of injuries can be fully treated on site at the clinic, but if a particularly severe injury requires more major intervention, the patient is transferred to a suitable hospital.
