Prof. Dr. med. Carl Thiem was the founder of the trauma and reconstructive surgery in Germany. He wrote and published 1898 the trendsetting handbook "Compendium of Trauma Diseases depend on own Medical Experience".
To honor his work the German Society of Orthopaedics and Trauma Surgery dedicate the "Carl-Thiem medal" for special archievements in this speciality.
1914 he established a modern hospital in Cottbus for the fast growing population in the age of industrialisation. According to the name of "Carl Thiem" the hospital is nowadays the largest in the State of Brandenburg.
