Every surgical treatment/intervention requires experience, the willingness to assume responsibility, patience, imagination and the necessary skills and talents. Whilst the true "genius" of the surgeon is not necessarily down to "fancy" surgical techniques, but rather in the strength of the surgeon's personality and human kindness.
We offer the following types of surgery:
- Intervertebral Disc Operations
- Microscopic Intervertebral Disc Operations
- Endoscopic Intervertebral Disc Operations
- Intervertebral Disc Replacement Therapy
- Autologous Tissue Transplants
- Microscopic Nerve Decompression
- Minimal-invasive Fusion
Acute disc prolapses are - more often than not - triggered by abrupt movements or by lifting heavy objects. However, the primary cause is usually age-related wear and tear, or a hereditary weakness of the intervertebral disc tissue. The intervertebral disc consists of a soft elastic ring acting as a cushion between the individual vertebrae. In cases of acute disc prolapse, the disc bulges back and thereby causes a painful stimulus on the surrounding nerve roots. If it is impossible to obtain relief by way of conservative, i.e. non-surgical therapy (e.g. physiotherapy or pharmacotherapy), contemporary surgical techniques are available to relieve the pressure on the nerve roots.
