- For more than 80% of the operations performed in Germany, there are still no meaningful studies that verify their necessity. As an example, 80% of back operations in Germany are demonstrably unnecessary.
- Almost a quarter of a million (250,000!) Hip prostheses are used each year in Germany – in relation to the number of inhabitants, almost twice as many as in the rest of Europe.
- With 180,000 knee prosthesis operations per year in Germany, the number is twice as high as in France or Sweden.
- Intervertebral disc operations (175,000 in 2012!) Are almost twice as high in Germany as in Sweden and five times (!) More often than in France and the Benelux countries.
The pain therapy according to Liebscher & Bracht, according to which I have been working for many years from my own studies, is able to treat 90% of the pain effectively and effectively without surgery or medication.
