Albert Hoffa (1859-1907)
Albert Hoffa (1859-1907)

Albert Hoffa (31 March 1859 – 31 December 1907) was a German surgeon, orthopedist and physiotherapist born in Richmond, Cape of Good Hope.

He studied medicine at the Universities of Marburg and Freiburg, earning his doctorate with a thesis on nephritis saturnina. In 1886, he opened a private clinic for orthopedics, physiotherapy and massage in Würzburg,[1] where in 1895 he became an associate professor at the university. In 1902 he succeeded Julius Wolff (1836-1902) at the department of orthopedics in Berlin.[2]

Hoffa is remembered for introducing an operation for congenital hip dislocations (1890),[3] as well as for development of a system of massage therapy (Hoffa system).[4] His name is associated with a condition known as "Hoffa's fat pad disease", being characterized by chronic knee pain primarily beneath the patella.[5]

In 1892 he founded the journal Zeitschrift für orthopädische Chirurgie.
