STENUM follows a highly professional and safe anesthesia concept:

  • All anesthesias are carried out by medical specialists.
  • Wherever possible and appropriate, local anesthetic procedures (regional anesthesia) are preferred.
  • In the case of general anesthesia, the depth of anesthesia is measured by monitoring brain activity. This increases the safety of the patient.
  • The generous use of foreign blood-saving procedures (Cellsaver) makes it possible that most surgeries can be carried out without administering foreign blood.

Remarkable! At STENUM, we use regional anesthesia in 80-90% of hip and knee surgeries – and even in spine surgeries – to ensure the greatest possible safety for the patient. STENUM was one of the first hospitals in the world to use pain catheters for spine surgery. With success! In the meantime, many clinics are following this approach.

Surgery Room

A unique panoramic window extends across the surgery room’s entire width, allowing friendly daylight to stream in. The team and the patients have an incomparable view of the Stenumer Holz from the surgery room. Unique in Germany!

The STENUMER daylight surgery room also has excellent hygiene standards:

  • The design of an open-plan surgery room allows short distances.
  • The surgeons, anesthesiologists, and assistants are permanently in the sterile room, and the time-consuming process of passing through hygiene airlocks is avoided.
  • This means increased safety for the patient, as all specialists are continuously present.
  • The operating tables are hygienically separated from each other by an airflow wall.
  • The surgeons also wear a special helmet during endoprosthetic procedures.
