ABOUT DR. BALTIN
Due to many years of experience at the University Hospital of Cologne, I draw upon a broad spectrum of knowledge in the field of orthopedics, surgery and trauma surgery. My work focuses on a holistic and individual approach.
My framework is divided into rehabilitation and prevention of diseases and injuries of the entire postural and musculoskeletal system.
My medical approach is based on the latest scientific findings and is multifaceted: using conservative, gentle and preservative measures as well as surgical, corrective or replacement therapy methods if necessary. In case of an inevitable surgical measure, I will be pleased to advise you comprehensively since I also hold close contact with recognized surgical specialists both regionally and nationally.
Furthermore, my medical consulting takes a multimodal approach into account and, if necessary, I will establish an interdisciplinary exchange with other medical professionals.
In addition to an exact diagnosis and an individually tailored therapy concept, I believe that the interaction between doctor and patient is also an elementary variable for an optimal and sustainable treatment result.
I attach great importance to the fact that the personal, medical care is particularly characterized by professionalism, but also trust and transparency.
