The philosophy of the Athletikum Group

As the world becomes increasingly complex, specialists are assuming a leading role in virtually every specialist discipline nowadays. Medicine, knowledge of the human body, has evolved in recent years to such a degree that just a generalised understanding is now far from adequate. A general understanding is especially not enough when there are complex surgical procedures involved.


Dr. Michael Lehmann, founder of the Athletikum Group, has dedicated himself to the treatment and research of shoulder and hip joint diseases since 1988.

As a member of the International Society for Hip Arthroscopy (ISHA), the European Society for Shoulder and Elbow Surgery (SECEC) and a founding member of the German Association of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery (DVSE), Dr. Michael Lehmann has put together an interdisciplinary and highly-trained professional team of specialist colleagues and physiotherapists to ensure that diseases of the musculoskeletal system can be diagnosed and treated as effectively as possible to the patient's greatest satisfaction.

Active exchanges with international colleagues and regular attendances at medical congresses create a fertile atmosphere for innovative medical ideas and experiences in performance medicine.


Conservative treatment methods used in the Athletikum Group

The Athletikum Group's treatment concept is based on an organised and controlled interaction of a non-surgical treatment strategy, supplementary surgery when required, physiotherapy and training specific to the type of sport involved, if necessary. We believe that only this team-orientated approach to treatment and support can produce the best result possible.

The Athletikum Group focuses especially on the innovative reuse of concepts for the conservative and operative treatment of sports-related orthopaedic conditions or injuries. Inspired by the motto, "micro is more", we are constantly on the look-out for a solution that is as conservative yet as successful as possible to treat the condition.


Our aspiration

Despite the high-tech diagnostic and treatment services we offer, our aspiration is to practice personalised medicine that addresses each individual's personal expectations and respects their individual requirements.

Of course, many conditions affecting the musculoskeletal system can be treated successfully and conservatively by combining highly specialist clinical, imaging, neurophysiological and laboratory-specific diagnostic procedures.

The doctors at the Athletikum Group are committed to finding the best possible solution for your orthopaedic problem.
