The Medical University of Vienna's Department of Orthopedics is a university center for the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of congenital and acquired musculoskeletal disorders. Its primary goal is to ensure that patients receive the best possible medical treatment.

A major focus is the scientific investigation of the disorders treated in the hospital – ranging from the causes, courses and diagnosis through to treatment. Of equal importance is the teaching aspect, whereby highly qualified staff pass on orthopedic knowledge and the very latest scientific discoveries to students in training.
