About

 

 Mr Fischer is a fully trained Orthopaedic, Trauma and Upper Limb Surgeon practising at the Spire Regency Hospital in Macclesfield. He specialises in the treatment of conditions affecting the shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand including degenerative conditions, sports injuries and fractures with an emphasis on minimally invasive and arthroscopic surgery.

After graduating from Medical School at the University of Heidelberg Mr Fischer's training took him from Germany to the north-west of England, to some of the most prestigious departments for hand and upper limb surgery and far-away places like Soweto and Indianapolis.

Mr Fischer offers a personalised service with a treatment plan that is tailor-made to a patient's individual needs and expectations. During an initial consultation, patients undergo a detailed assessment of their problem. Investigations like x-rays, scans or nerve conduction studies are often required in the diagnostic process. While most problems can be treated without surgery, operations are sometimes required in more treatment-resistant or complex conditions.

Mr Fischer carried out an operation on me to remove a painful bursa in my left elbow last Nov at Spire Hospital Macclesfield. It has been very successful and I would highly recommend Mr Fischer and the Hospital

Excellent communication and care relating to my frozen shoulder procedure. I doubt I would have been more satisfied anywhere else. Plus I like a surgeon with a sense of humour - it makes the whole process less stressful.

Mr Fischer explained everything that was going to happen in the procedure. He told me from the start how long a would probably have to wait before the operation, he explained on the day of the operation what he was going to do I felt at ease, and the aftercare first class. with phisio and Mr Fischer.

Although I went to see Mr Fischer about a ganglion, I mentioned that I had been experiencing numbness and pins and needles to my right hand......This he immediately diagnosed as carpal tunnel syndrome. He referred me for further test, and recommended surgery.....Throughout my treatment Mr Fischer was thorough, and explained the process answering any queries I had

Mr Fischer has been amazing. His clinics always ran on time, he always listened and advised, he gave me informed choices. He was very thorough and conscientious. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anybody and if I need to see an orthopaedic doctor in the future he would be my first choice.

Mr Jochen Fischer

Thank you so much for your review. Is there anything that could be improved to get 5 stars?

Excellent. The first hand operation by Mr Fischer was excellent and far better than previous operations by other surgeons. This was the reason I traveled to Macclesfiel rather than a local hospital and this hand operation looks just as good
