Which doctor do I go to for an x-ray check (Röntgenkontrolle) after foot surgery?

3 posts in this topic

Okay this might be a weird question, but here goes. I went to 4 different orthopedic surgeons before I had my surgery. They all gave me different opinions (that was fun...) and I finally decided to go with the last one. Now that the operation is over, the practice told me they focus on the surgery part, not the aftercare. I asked my Hausarzt if he can do it, but he told me he can only give me an referral back to the surgeon. So now I'm super confused how things are supposed to work in Germany.

 

Do I just find yet another orthopedic surgeon practice and make an appointment just for the control check? Even though they didn't perform the surgery?

Yes, this is what I did, for another reason: my surgery was not planned (broke my leg), so the aftercare I did at Klinikum Bayreuth at (my then) home: they do both surgeries and aftercare (except physiotherapy). 

 

The Hausarzt does not have expertise in this.
