"My own experiences with knee problems were my reason to study medicine. So I was interested in the knee in all its complexity through the whole specialist training. As a result, I have been working as a pure knee specialist since 2002. Based on proven principles, we apply innovative methods thanks to our active relationships with current research. Since about 2015, my work has increasingly focused on the individual treatment of knee osteoarthritis with custom-made implants from the 3D printer. - Prof. Dr. med. Markus P.
