Our experts work with great passion to ensure timely and competent medical advice on complex orthopedic & trauma, cardiovascular and neurosurgical infections. In order to enable sustainability of the PRO-IMPLANT Consultation Portal, a consultation fee will be implemented to ensure high-quality training of advisors, maintenance and further development of the online portal.

As a non-profit organization, the PRO-IMPLANT Foundation does not make financial benefit of its activities, but invests in medical research, professional education and improved patient care. All advisors completed a 18-month full-time clinical training in septic surgery at Charité Hospital Berlin and provide their consultations voluntarily beside their daily clinical work.
