Hip and Knee Surgery Abroad In Orthopaedic Hospital in Germany
 
 Prices for the Most Frequent Orthopaedic Operations
 
 Disclaimer: The following prices are presented to give you a clear and (almost) definite idea of the costs you would be facing if you decide to have an operation or other medical treatment done in Germany. They are based on the assumption that there will be no serious complications and that there are no serious risk factors involved (e.g. extreme obesity, underlying other diseases, very old age etc.) that might create additional potentially costly challenges for the German doctors and hospitals. Prices do include our organisational fees, but they do not cover travel expenses, costs for hotels, costs for hiring translators etc. Please note that not all of our German partners will be able to offer these prices, which is why all price quotations should be regarded as "starting from". If you decide to go to one particular hospital, we will have to confirm for you if that particular hospital is able to perform the required procedure at the quoted price or if it might charge a slightly higher price.
 
 This price list is currently under preparation. Further quotes will be available shortly.

 ALTERNATIVE APPROACHES TO ORTHOPAEDIC PROBLEMS:
 Neural Therapy: - causal approach to various painful conditions ranging from minor complaints to chronic osteoarthritis pains. It is estimated that between 30 and 50% of hip and knee operations might be avoided if sufferers underwent a good course of neural therapy. Involves injections of very small doses of local anaesthetic under the skin into or close to certain nerve endings. Practically no side effects. Frequently surprisingly helpful. Usually just one course of neural therapy is required costing about 1000 Euros and involving 5 to 10 sessions spread out over 3-5 weeks. Accomodation in hotel or pension etc. not included.
 Rolfing: Massage Therapy developed by Ida Rolf. Works on deeper tissue levels, muscles and fascia. Frequently brings permanent relief of severe pains (like back pains, sciatica etc.). Usually series of 10 sessions (just 3 for young children). Costs: between 80 and 150 Euros per session + Accomodation etc. over 5 weeks
