International Ortho Professional Care
For various reasons, our international VIP patients cannot always travel to Berlin in person. The Foot and Ankle Center in Berlin regularly receives the request from abroad whether Dr. Böhr can perhaps personally visit a patient in his home country? Our award-winning Ortho Professional Care concept offers a solution: for a fixed daily rate, Dr. Böhr personally travels abroad and treats international VIP patients onsite.
When travelling, we have our important medical equipment from Germany (e.g. sonography and gait analysis) with us. If required, we are also accompained by excellent German specialists for physiotherapy, osteopathy, orthopedic technology, orthopedic shoe technology or podiatry to treat VIP patients holistically.
Thanks to this unique service, our VIP patients with special requirements for security and privacy have access to the expertise of foot and ankle specialist Dr Böhr and our coordinated concept for physiotherapy, osteopathy and podiatry. At the same time, if required, German craftsmanship is available to supply custom-made shoes, prostheses and medical aids.
Most prostheses, shoes and medical aids are custom-made in Berlin, Germany. The manufacturing process of high quality products includes multiple steps in Berlin and individual fittings with the patient. For this reason, the orthopaedic technican master might have to travel several times to see the patient and ensure excellent results.

Emergency & International Ortho Professional Care
International Ortho Professsional Care is not an emergency program. Urgent consultations for international VIP patients with Dr. Böhr can be arranged short-term on the business premises of the Foot and Ankle Center in Berlin, Germany.
Please be aware that most fracture cases and tendon ruptures (e.g. ankle fracture or Achilles tendon rupture) will need surgical treatment within 10 to 14 days after trauma. Given this condition, time is usually too short to plan an emergency suergery by Dr. Böhr in Berlin, Germany.
Surgery for international patients by Dr. Böhr
If you require a foot and ankle surgery by Dr. Böhr, we will be happy to organize an inpatient treatment in the award-winning Sanssouci private clinic in Potsdam, just outside Berlin. Please make sure to provide us with all available medical information in advance.
Time schedule for surgery of internaional patients
We strongly recommend our international patients to arrive in Berlin at least two days prior to surgery. In most cases, special X-ray investigations, incuding weightbearing CT, are required to exactly plan the surgery. A personal physical exam by Dr. Böhr is absolutely necessary prior to surgery.
Length of hospital stay depends on the required type of surgery and varies between 2 to 5 days. In case of larger surgery, we recommend a minimum stay in Berlin for additional 10 days after discharge from the private clinic. Patients undergoing minor surgery (e.g. non-complex hallux valgus surgery or ankle arthroscopy) can travel back home the day after leaving the hospital.
