Interview Prof. Dr. med. Wolfgang Lehmann
What makes your clinic stand out?
By uniting the Clinic for Trauma Surgery, Orthopaedics, and Plastic Surgery, we are one of the largest university clinics for musculoskeletal surgery. One of our main tasks is the care and treatment of severely injured persons. As a transregional trauma centre, we rank among the clinics with the highest number of severely injured persons treated in Germany. The clinic is divided into several focus areas, in which our specialists for trauma surgery and orthopaedics attend to our patients together.
At the same time, we are one of the few clinics in Southern Lower Saxony that is SAV-approved (“Schwerstverletzungsartenverfahren”, or Severe Injury Type Procedure in English) by the employer’s liability insurance associations. This means that we are certified to treat even the most severe work-related accidents. In addition to the accident insurance consultant’s outpatient clinic, we also have a special employer’s liability insurance association consultation hour and a rehabilitation consultation hour.
