Maintaining and improving quality of endoprosthetics requires a high degree of specialization,
expert knowledge, and experience. To achieve this goal, the German Society for Orthopaedics and
launched the EndoCert Initiative in collaboration with other organizations in the field.
The main therapeutic focus of the certified EndoProthetikZentren (EPZ) and EndoProthetikZentren with maximum surgical care (EPZmax) is replacement of hip and knee joints with artificial implants.
Continuity of quality and compliance with requirements to EndoProthetikZentren is verified annually by qualified experts. The requirements themselves are reviewed regularly by EndoCert and its representatives to ensure the latest scientific and medical standards are incorporated.
This website lists certified institutions for interested parties (e.g. patients). The certification process and scope are described on the ClarCert homepage.
