Center for Foot Surgery

The Center for Foot Surgery at Confraternität Private Hospital offers a wide range of medical services for patients with foot problems and malalignments.

Our services are suitable for people with acute or chronic complaints. In collaboration with the Fußzentrum (Foot Center) at Alser Straße 43/8, just around the corner from Confraternität Private Hospital, the Center for Foot Surgery serves as a specialist hub offering the full range of diagnostic options and treatments, from the initial medical history to any necessary surgery, as well as post-operative and preventive care.

Range of services
  • Interdisciplinary approach to investigation and diagnosis
  • Conservative treatment methods and surgery
  • Outpatient aftercare

Our experienced orthopedic consultants, Prof. Hans-Jörg Trnka, MD, and Karl-Heinz Kristen, MD, are specialists in structural changes to the forefoot (e.g. hallux valgus (bunions), splay foot) and hind foot (e.g. flat feet, arthritis of the ankle). These experts are both attending physicians at Confraternität Private Hospital. The team also includes other experienced specialists in both conservative and surgical treatment methods for foot problems, sports orthopedics, physiotherapy, and rehabilitation.

All operations are performed at Confraternität Private Hospital, which provides comprehensive inpatient care services and has at its disposal a medical infrastructure that includes the latest technology.

Confraternität is the only private hospital in Vienna equipped with a mini C-arm x-ray system for orthopedic investigations; this equipment is specially adapted to the needs of foot surgery and provides the attending doctor with reliable, high-quality imaging, allowing even better and more precise monitoring of treatment outcomes.
