Together with Prof. Dr. med. Habermeyer, Dr. med. Andreas Klonz opened the emergency room at ATOS Clinic in 2005, which over the years has become one of the largest practices at ATOS Clinic:
SPORTS SURGERY HEIDELBERG. The department is now much more than just an emergency room.
Since 2000 Dr. Klonz has in particular carried out operations on the shoulder and elbow. In this area, his focus is on his own scientific work, as well as continuous training in and further development of specialised treatments.
Dr. Klonz specialises in the treatment of musculoskeletal injuries, particularly bone fractures, tendon tears and ligament injuries.
A special focus is the treatment of sports injuries – for example, cruciate ligament and meniscus tears. From 2008 to 2013 he was the team doctor of the Handball Bundesliga team of the Rhein-Neckar-Löwen. During this time, he also acted as a replacement physician for the Adler Mannheim ice hockey players.
Many national rugby players, Bundesliga players, as well as youth players and their parents have relied on Dr. Klonz.
Dr. Klonz is married and is the father of 2 boys. During his adolescence and studies, he played high-level handball, as well as football and tennis. Today he keeps fit with mountain biking, skiing and fitness training.
Dr. Klonz was awarded in 2017 and 2018 with the recommendation seal of Focus magazine as an ‘Orthopaedic Surgeon’.
Since 2017 he is chairman of the commission for quality assurance in arthroscopy at KVBW.
