Spine surgery / neurosurgery

When conservative treatment options have been exhausted and surgery is necessary, our back specialists are in close contact with the neurosurgeons in Spine Surgery. With their many years of experience, the surgeons treat the wide-ranging clinical pictures of the nervous system minimally invasively and microsurgically - from acute herniated discs to spinal canal stenoses.

Depending on the degree of damage and the affected spinal site, various surgical techniques are used. In some cases, the experienced spine specialists replace the worn disc with an implant in order to preserve the movement and thus the mobility of individual vertebrae. Our ultimate goal: That you get moving again and we relieve your pain.
