Main focusses

Clinic for orthopedics and accident surgery: spinal column department

In the Spinal Department, we treat patients with slipped discs, stenosis, spondylolisthesis, vertebral fractures and inflammation.

Our main focusses at a glance:
Cervical slipped disc
Disc prolapse - cervical spine

With a slipped disc (disc prolapse), jelly-like parts of the spinal disc protrude into the spinal canal.

More information.


Cervical stenosis
Narrowing of the spinal canal at the cervical spine

Cervical spinal canal stenosis refers to a circumscribed narrowing of the spinal canal at the cervical spine level. This can lead to compression of the spinal cord, nerve roots or nerves.

More information.


Lumbar slipped disc
Disc prolapse - lumbar spine

With a slipped disc, jelly-like parts of the spinal disc protrude into the spinal canal. With a disc protrusion, parts of the cartilage ring around the disc protrude a little way into the spinal canal.

More information.


Lumbar spinal canal stenosis
Narrowing of the spinal canal at the lumbar spine

Lumbar spinal canal stenosis refers to a circumscribed narrowing of the spinal canal at the lumbar spine level. This can lead to compression of the spinal cord, nerve roots or nerves.

More information.


Spondylolisthesis
Spondylolisthesis

Lumbar spinal canal stenosis refers to a circumscribed narrowing of the spinal canal at the lumbar spine level. This can lead to compression of the spinal cord, nerve roots or nerves.

More information.


Vertebral fractures
Vertebral body fractures

A distinction is made in terms of the cause between traumatic (accident-related) fractures, osteoporotic fractures and pathological fractures.

More information.


Inflammation
Spondylodiscitis

Infections of the spinal column are rare. If the spinal disc is affected, this is known as spondylodiscitis (inflammation), while if the vertebra itself is affected, it is known as spondylitis.
