Minimally invasive spine surgery in Germany

Through the use of minimally invasive spine surgery techniques, what was formerly a major surgical procedure for the patient suffering from spinal disorders has now become very much less serious – almost routine.

The well-being of the patients at our clinic in Germany is therefore much less affected postoperatively than was the case previously. The tissue surrounding the surgical area is unaffected by the procedure and the small incisions made in the skin heal very quickly, reducing the recovery period enormously.

Such innovative, modern techniques are used for the treatment of degenerative, inflammatory and tumorous spinal disorders at our clinic in Germany such as:

  • backache
  • painful disorders of the intervertebral discs
  • herniated discs
  • stenosus of the spinal canal
  • degenerative instability
  • osteoporotic disintegration of the vertebrae
  • spondylocystitis
  • spinal abscesses
  • tumour-related instability

Minimally invasive spine surgery in Germany has many advantages as opposed to conventional surgical techniques. These include quick healing of the incisions, short recovery times and smaller scars. These surgical techniques have made it possible for skilled surgeons to perform surgical procedures in the case of spinal canal stenosis, herniated discs and other disorders of the spinal column in a gentle manner, which promotes fast healing. At our clinic in Germany, we have a lot of experience in these modern surgical techniques.

Background of minimally invasive spine surgery

Along with modern imaging techniques, excellent, new advanced possibilities for minimally invasive spine surgery are emerging. At our clinic in Friedrichshafen, Germany, we strive to embrace these methods and participate in further training regularly, so that we can keep up with world standards and ensure the best possible treatment for our patients at all times.

This type of back surgery is becoming more and more important because back problems are on the increase. With the modern communications methods of today, patients are also beginning to inform themselves in detail with regard to their symptoms and the treatment options. Modern minimally invasive spine surgery is very appealing to the patient who does not want to spend a long time recovering, and also doesn’t want to be scarred for life. If you have researched the subject of minimally invasive spine surgery yourself, you will also be on the lookout for the best possible treatment. Minimally invasive spine surgery is likely to fulfil your requirements. Please don’t hesitate to contact us at our clinic in Friedrichshafen, Germany, if you have any questions.

Modern techniques, experience, innovative thinking, excellent equipment and outstanding orthopaedic surgeons are the factors that make this modern method so successful for treatment of loin pain. Our clinic in Germany can offer you all of this and more. Our rooms are pleasantly furnished and our physicians, surgeons, anaesthetists, surgical staff and nursing staff are dedicated to ensuring that your operation and your stay with us will be as pleasant as possible.

Many people suffer from back problems due to weak musculature and incorrect load distribution of the spinal column. This can result in herniated discs. Stenosis is a painful disorder of the spinal column caused by narrowing of the spinal canal. All of these disorders can now be treated with minimally invasive spine surgery with excellent results.

Methods used at our clinic in Germany

Minimally invasive micro-surgical spine surgery

This method derives its name from the magnified image that the surgeon has of the surgical area.

  • Minimally invasive percutaneous technique: A small tube is inserted under the skin and the very small surgical instruments are inserted through this tube. Any tissue that must be removed is also extracted through this opening. X-rays ensure that the tube is positioned correctly and that the completed procedure has been performed correctly.
  • Minimally invasive endoscopic spine surgery: An endoscope is required for this procedure. It is inserted into the affected area. It provides images of the affected area of the spine during the procedure, thereby enabling surgeons to perform the operation through a very small incision. Several small incisions on the skin are required – one for the endoscope and others for the surgical instruments. The wounds are no larger than the diameter of the narrow endoscope, meaning quicker healing because the surrounding tissue is not damaged in any way.

A higher degree of safety with new technologies at our clinic in Germany

With the aid of the latest navigation system available in medical technology, the surgeon is supported with 3-D imaging all the way through the surgical procedure, enabling him to work with a very high degree of precision. By the positioning of pedicle screws, an accuracy within a fraction of a millimetre is possible, thereby sparing the spinal cord from accidental damage. At our clinic in Germany, we use an ultra-modern electrophysiological measuring system for the treatment of deformities. An early warning system enables us to recognise changes to the sensitive bone marrow of the spinal cord, enabling early action, should changes be detected. These modern systems increase the safety of the patient considerably compared to conventional surgical techniques.

My daughter has a 50 degree a shaped scoliosis curve. Otherwise her health is fine. Would she be a candidate for VBT .
Also what is the total cost of the procedure.
