Research and professional development at Schoen Clinic

Quality and research

For more than three decades, we continue to pursue our aspiration for medical excellence. As part of our quality management improvement ethos – our ongoing activity of collecting treatment outcomes and analysing results means we continuously review and improve our services for our patients. Our consultants and healthcare professionals are frequently involved in clinical research and academic collaborations, both Nationally and Internationally, to further develop our treatment methods and to be at the forefront of new technology and treatments for our patients.

Collaborations with Universities and Endowed Chairs

We work with universities in all corners of Germany and Austria. We also support research and teaching through Endowed Chairs and research institutes. Through this, we can ensure that the latest scientific knowledge is used directly in clinical practice.

Research Grant

The Professor Dr Manfred Fichter Fellowship is an example of the value that we place on research. This grant is awarded annually to junior Schoen Clinic staff, this allows them to carry out research for up to one year. Professor Fichter laid the foundations for the success of our hospital group. His relentless focus on qualitative measures of therapeutic effectiveness combined with continuous learning and development shapes the DNA of our hospital group today. The grant, named after him, enables others to pursue and uphold his legacy for improving patient outcomes.

Mental Health, Orthopaedics, Neurology: Clinical Research in all Disciplines

Helping to pave the way for the medicine is the aim of our research, and the continuous improvement of therapies is our motivation. Compared to international standards, we therefore achieve excellent treatment results. This has been confirmed in mental health medicine, for instance in a study relating to inpatient treatment of young people with anorexia (1).

Further highlights from our many hundreds of research projects: A study in the field of Orthopaedics investigated how the therapeutic success of patients with knee TEP could be better projected and optimised (2). A study in spinal surgery made a significant contribution to how we identify patients at risk of spinal canal narrowing (spinal canal stenosis) in advance, and how the surgical methods can be adapted (3).

A neurological study had great practical relevance for patients with Parkinson’s Disease. It showed that a specific two-week physiotherapy programme could reduce the number of freezing episodes (4).
