Our centre promotes high level of Orthopedics in Germany offers both conservative and surgical methods of treatment for various kinds of spinal pathologies. If necessary, doctor prescribes complex pharmacological therapy aimed at reducing inflammation, edema or excess tension. In some cases physiotherapy is prescribed: ultrasound therapy, electrophoresis, magnetic-laser therapy, as well as massage and osteopathy. Our experts use interdisciplinary approach and consider pain syndrome together with other somatic aspects.
Friedrichshafen clinic also offers microsurgical operations for any part of the spine (cervical, thoracic and lumbosacral). We use minimally invasive techniques, and our operating rooms are equipped with all the necessary equipment and microsurgical appliances for high-technology surgeries, such as microdiscectomy with minimally invasive access points, percutaneous spinal stabilization.
Our clinic’s highly-skilled neurosurgeons are experienced in minimally invasive and percutaneous surgeries, they use latest techniques in prosthetics, instrumental fixation of spinal segments and high-tech systems of spinal stabilization.
Back pain is one of the most common patient complaints in general medical practice. Some people get so used to it that back pain becomes a part of their everyday life. According to results of scientific research, 60-80% of adult population suffer from back pain. Back pain is an alerting symptom and can indicate the following pathologies:
Needless to say that treatment of back pain should start as early as possible.
Treatment is chosen after back pain is thoroughly examined and diagnosed.
Microsurgical removal of discal hernia through small (about 3 cm) incision by means of special mini-access systems and binocular magnifier.
Performed in case of pathological spinal hypermobility, spinal instability, simple fractures. Stabilizing systems of leading world manufacturers (Medtronic, Stryker, Synthes) are used for minimally invasive spinal fixation surgery.
Performed in case of stenosis (constrictions) of spinal canal in one or more levels. Advanced tool and optical magnification systems are used for spinal canal and nervous roots decompression; special implants are used to stabilize affected spinal parts.
Microsurgical equipment and advanced surgical optical instruments allow to fully remove the tumour and, as a result, to avoid relapses.
In a number of cases we conduct advanced complex surgeries, for example, combined discal hernia removal and spinal stabilization. Modern standards of diagnostics and spinal pathology treatment, experience and high skills of our doctors secure invariably great results of spinal diseases treatment. Minimally traumatic techniques allow making your stay in in-patient department considerably shorter.
Further medical rehabilitation is performed under the care of traumatologists and orthopedists, rehabilitologists and physical therapists. We treat not only back pain but its cause. We look forward to seeing you in our spine treatment centre.
